A church anniversary invitation letter is a document written to request the attendance of an individual, a family or other churches or ministries to the anniversary celebration of a church. Many churches like to commemorate the planting of their church organization on a yearly basis. It is a time when members talk about the impact that the church has had on them and on the community.
The invitation letter is a formal way of informing the members about the anniversary and encouraging them to invite their friends, colleagues and family. Many churches today use emails to distribute their church anniversary invitation letters. This is so because, most of the members are already on their e-mailing lists and receive regular updates from the church.
A church anniversary celebration is usually a time of rejoicing and thanksgiving. It is a good time to invite friends and family members to see what a church has been doing in the past year. Some churches celebrate their anniversaries annually and others only celebrate every 5 year or every decade.
