Becoming Better Communicators

Last week, Julie and I learned of a new method to share announcements and help make information easily accessible to our guests when they walk in. Yes...I'm changing things. 🙄

Some things to know:

I don't make changes just for the sake of change. Every change has a strategic purpose.
This change aims to help increase how our information gets to our congregation. We have been sending an email weekly. The new method will include an email, text message, Facebook post, website page, and live within the app–all of this without extra work.
I have heard from some of our new attendees that information isn't as easy for them to access–not anymore!

It is hard when things change, but this will help us be more accessible as a church. Our current communication system creates an invisible line of being "on the inside" of the group and receiving all the information. We aren't a church that functions with insiders and outsiders. I want us to demonstrate that from every level.

How you can help:

We've been so blessed the past month with many new faces in worship! Here are some things you can do to help us continue to be fantastic hosts:
  • Remember to give out our welcome bags. These bags are "build your own," so they start empty. Help the new persons pick out what they want so they have our appreciation items when they leave.
  • Start reading our eMag (newsletter) each week so that you know what's happening. Our welcome will start to focus on our guests and welcoming them instead of on announcements. This means we need you to respond when we send you the message that it's ready to read. We will direct all our guests on how to find the content as well.
Keep being amazing! You, as a church, have done amazing things...and I know God has so much for us to do. Remember, we have to keep pressing forward.
That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! –2 Corinthians 4:16-17, NLT
