Have you seen the name tags with the bold letters at the top that say “Hello, my name is …”? I have worn more than a few of them through the years.
I have to confess, I really like name tags. Part of the reason is because I am a visual learner. I can hear someone’s name and forget it before the conversation has even concluded. But when I see the name, I am much more likely to remember it — at least for a little while anyway.
Name tags are more than just tradition for groups. In fact, they might be one of the first steps to disciple-making. 3. Use name tags to help get to know one another.
Have members write their first name in big, bold letters; last name in smaller letters. Underneath the name have them respond to a question of the week. These questions might include: month of birth, state of birth, favorite color, number of states lived in, etc. This can be fun and informative.
