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.

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!


On behalf of Ignite Church.
