Text Messaging For Churches

Text Message Software for Churches

Texting for Churches

When we want to communicate with people nowadays, more often than not we text them. Moreover for churches, calling a newcomer may feel too aggressive, and emails never get read. That’s why more and more churches are turning to texting to communicate with their members and build their community.

Church Texting Use Cases

Engage Your Congregation with Texting

Texting for churches lets you send messages to your entire congregation! Just collect their phone numbers using mobile keywords, then send engaging messages like prayer requests, community updates, ministry information, and event updates. Even better, landline texting lets you have two-way conversations with congregants using the phone number you already own.

Use Texting for Donations

Churches need donations to keep their programs funded throughout the year, and texting for churches is a great way to get them. It gives donors a simple process where they can make a one time donation to your organization and move on. Announce the program during your services for maximum exposure. And if you send your congregation a text with a link to your church's donation page, they are far more likely to click it and complete a donation.

Send Text Reminders

Text reminders are an amazing way to increase attendance. You can send your congregation personalized reminders to come to service on Sunday or other days of worship. These could also include regular info about upcoming activities or meetings, or alerts if a time or location for a regular event has been changed. You can also let people know about other special gatherings, such as church camps or classes.

Boost Service Attendance

You can automatically schedule messages to your congregation on what’s coming up and encourage them to attend. It could be a service with an unusual time, like Christmas, or it could be a special event, such as a guest speaker or online service. Sending out text surveys can also help organizers gauge interest and get a general head count.

Send Event Updates

Text reminders are an amazing way to increase attendance. You can send your congregation personalized reminders to come to service on Sunday or other days of worship. These could also include regular info about upcoming activities or meetings, or alerts if a time or location for a regular event has been changed. You can also let people know about other special gatherings, such as church camps or classes.

Organize Your Staff

Church leaders need to delegate to make sure all programs and services run smoothly, from choir to youth programs to ministry to scheduling and maintaining facilities. With a text messaging service for churches, volunteers can keep everyone in contact no matter where they are in their busy lives. This is better than a phone or email chain and far more efficient for your congregation.
