It works for all ages.
Communication that reaches all generations is a challenge for many churches. But mobile technology has put nearly everyone within a phone’s reach. Whether they prefer a landline or a mobile device, nearly everyone is equipped to receive a phone call. Church text messages, emails and social media can supplement for non-urgent messages.
With a broadcast messaging service like One Call Now, you can send a single recorded message to your whole congregation at once. Or send messages to specific groups or ministries. And unlike social media, which requires users to create accounts, phone messaging ensures that no one gets left out of important communications.
You’ll know they got your message.
Pastors and staff are all too familiar with a disengaging cycle that happens when members miss a church service, and therefore miss announcements. They then miss out on events. The information void is widened again when they miss announcements that were made at the events. It doesn’t take long for congregants to feel isolated and excluded.
Church communication with One Call Now is all-inclusive. Messages are nearly always received. And detailed reports confirm if messages were received. In contrast, it’s impossible with other channels like social media to know whether your message cuts through the clutter.
It’s perfect for getting the word out quickly.
Newsletters are great in-depth stories, budget reporting, or recaps of past events. But they don’t work when your congregants need to know something immediately. For emergencies, event cancellations, or other time sensitive announcements, One Call Now delivers.
Church text messaging, voice calling, emails and social media posts through One Call Now’s powerful platform are an effective, reliable form of church outreach. Your members—young and old, active and astray, tech-savvy and traditional—will all thank you.
