Church Anniversary Invitation Letter

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.

Types of church anniversary invitation letter

Since the church is an organization, there are a variety of people that would be invited to the church anniversary. Here is a list of some of the people or groups that may be invited. Each group would require a slightly different invitation letter.

  • Guest Speaker at the church anniversary
  • Guest music or drama ministers to participate
  • Pastors and leaders from other churches to attend
  • Friends and other family members of the church members to attend the events of the anniversary.
  • People who are connected to the church already

It has been ten years, since Ignite Church opened its door to the public on July 10, 2005. We have a reason to celebrate God’s faithfulness to our Ministry. We’ve seen God do and bring much. Lives have been changed. We’ve seen baptisms, heard testimonies and witnessed and a new outlook to life through the eyes of Christ.

This promises to be a great week. Our senior pastors James & Jane will be in town.

Don’t miss the Word-Fest Conference (theme:unspeakable joy) which starts on Wednesday through Friday. Main sessions run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the sanctuary.

Saturday: Anniversary Gala. Registration for this event is now closed. We have reached capacity.

Sunday: Thanksgiving Service, 6 to 8:30p.m. Open to the public.

Please plan to be with us as we learn, celebrate and give praise to whom praise is due.. Lord Jesus, the Master and keeper of all good things!

As we celebrate, may you also look at your life and celebrate what the Lord has done in you, through you and for you. Blessed be His name.

Have a wonderful week!

Family Reunion invitation letter

A family reunion invitation letter is a document used to request the presence of your family members at a event that brings members of the family together. It could be a printed document or an electronic document.

A family reunion is a very unique event because the aim of the event is to bring as many members of the family together as possible. There are simple family reunions that involve only the immediate family and their family and there are reunions that involve family members of various generations and connections.

Regardless of the scope of your family reunion, these members of the family must be invited. You could choose to pick up a phone and call them or write a family reunion invitation letter. You could also use social media platforms such as FaceBook or Instagram to invite them.

Content of a Family Reunion Invitation Letter.

Your invitation letter must contain the following:

  • The name of the person (and their immediate family) that you want to invite
  • The reason for the meeting
  • The nature of the family reunion (would it be just a weekend get away at a location, a party in a hall for just one evening)
  • Date, time and duration of the reunion
  • Will there be a family meeting to decide on issues?
  • If there will be a family meeting – what will be discussed?
  • Who is calling the meeting

Dear Julia and Family,

Invitation to our Family Reunion Weekend and Dinner

During the just concluded wedding of Jack and his beautiful wife Maggie, some members of the family became more aware of the need to have a formal family reunion for the entire Jacob’s family. Dad is now 88 years old and mum is 85 years old. It would be great to have a get together this year where we all can bring our spouses and children. It will help to build a stronger and loving bond between us. This is especially important for the children. Some of them have never met each other in person.

As the eldest son of the family and because I have this friend who is willing to lend me his ranch for a weekend this summer, I am inviting you all to a family reunion on July 12 – 15 20XX. The ranch can accommodate 15 families and there are some good motels nearby. The main dinner will be on Saturday July 12th at 5 pm. If you are unable to take the weekend off, then do your best to be at the dinner on Saturday. The dinner will hold at the ranch. We have a great caterer who will take care of the dinner that night.

I look forward to having all of us together in one place.

With lots of love,

John and Jane Jacobs.


Other variations for Family Reunion Invitation Letter

You may want to have a family reunion that involves the sisters and brothers of your spouses too. This kind of family reunion will be a bigger party and is usually just one night. The cost for organising such a reunion can be quite high. As a result of the higher costs for these kinds of reunions, there is usually a committee of members in charge of planning the reunion. In that case the invitation to the event will be written by this committee. The content of the letter will be similar but the letter will come from John, chairman of the Jacob’s family reunion planning committee.

Reunions that are combined with other events.

Family Reunions can also be organized around other events such as the birthday party of one of the parents or a memorial of the passing of one of the parents. If this is the case, the reunion will be a combined event and it would be stated in the invitation letter.
