People crave identification with their church or religious group just as much as they do with a sports team, club, or association.
Most churches have many special programs. Participation in these programs merits special recognition. A custom lapel pin is ideal for this purpose. Also, there are many promotional products that are very handy in this regard.
Youth programs lend themselves very well to a variety of pins, charms, and badges. Teachers of Sunday School have a huge need to motivate and reward their students. A pin recognizing bible verse memorization or similar achievement can help you generate enthusiasm among your students.
And finally, many churches are actively promoting themselves in the community. Calendars with a religious theme, imprinted pens, or refrigerator magnets are wonderful products for keeping your name and affiliation out there in the community.
