I’m amazed at what God is doing during this time. Even though we’re all secluded and keeping our distance, people are coming together like never before. And churches are helping lead the way!
We’re learning every day that church is so much more than a building. My hope is that we continue to learn from this time what it really means to build community, and that we’ll continue some of these new practices even after this crisis is over.
One of the best tactics I’m seeing churches implement during this time is text messaging. It’s a great way to cut through all the email clutter, and communicate directly with your people.
Our friends at Text In Church are offering free text messaging accounts to help equip churches all across the country to continue to spread hope and build community. I wanted to share this opportunity with you as connecting with our communities during this time is more important today than ever before.
In addition to a free 60-day membership, they are providing weekly live training to talk through different strategies for connecting with your members and guests exclusively online.
They’ve also built out 2 free PDF resources to help you stay connected with your people. The Live Stream Guest Follow-up Plan has done-for-you messages so you can connect with all of the individuals who “attend” your online services. The Text Messaging Guide to Keep Your Community Connected contains text message ideas to encourage, uplift and resource your parents, youth, congregation and leadership.
Here’s what this looks like…
- If you’re not yet a Text In Church member, you can access Text In Church FREE for 60 days. No fine print, no contracts, no gimmicks. You can cancel your membership at any time.
- If you are already a Text In Church member, they will add 1000 extra text messages to your account for the next 60 days.
Text In Church is positioned and prepared to walk through this anxious and confusing time with you. Their system is performing optimally and their staff is used to working remotely. With this being said, they are ready to care for and support you and your community.
