Would you like to show your local congregation the power that Christian music can bring to inspire a deeper connection with your faith? Maybe your local youth group is in need of some ideas to resonate more with the Bible? Incorporating Contemporary Christian music into the church can help connect members across different backgrounds and generations to common themes found in Christian literature.
A great way to introduce this is through fundraising efforts where all proceeds go towards your local congregation. Clergy members should be more receptive to music in the church when it can help raise interest in the church and help the church financially. Plus, it’s a great way to introduce children and youth to the themes of Christianity and help build stronger relationships to existing church members, too.
CCM Fundraising Ideas
Are you interested in proposing the idea of showcasing Christian contemporary music through fundraising to your church leaders but not sure where to begin? I’ve got ideas to get you started!
- Live Music Ice Cream Social
Everyone loves a nice cold ice cream cone on a warm day, especially when you throw live music into the mix. A great way to introduce contemporary Christian music to your church congregation would be to have musically-inclined members learn some songs and play them at the social for everyone.
Social-goers will be more likely to enjoy the live music if they know the performers, making them more comfortable listening to the message the lyrics have to share. Fundraisers could collect donations in the form of tips for the band with proceeds going towards the church.
- Holiday-themed Show
Next, a holiday show lends itself very nicely to live music, especially contemporary Christian holiday music. Fundraisers could ask for donations at the door or at meetings leading up to the event.
A Christmas-themed show is a great idea given the generous time of year and amount of joyous music options. Contemporary Christian music has lots of Christmas and holiday options sure to spark joy within your congregation.
- Youth Talent Show
Most families like to encourage their children to develop their natural talents, so why not host a youth talent show? This gives younger church-goers a chance to show off their skills and incorporate music into their faith. If there is a local christian band that would like to make an appearance, this would be a great opportunity to incorporate their music into the show.
Plus, you can take votes in the form of donations to declare a winner and give those proceeds towards future church-led activities and events.
