11 Ways to Serve Your Community This Sunday — Part 1
Apps have become the primary digital tool for daily interaction with your community. Since your app will be used more than your website, think mobile first! There are so many great features to include in your app that encourage your community to interact with your app on the daily, but beyond engaging your community during the week, we’ve designed some great tools to enhance your congregation’s worship gathering on the weekends.
Here are a few examples of ways people can use your app starting with helping people get to your church all the way through getting people connected to a group.
Here are the features we are going to explore in this series:
- Push Notifications
- Digital Bulletins
- Visitor Cards
- Fill In Notes
- Live Interaction
- Sign Up Forms
- Group Connect
Easily integrate maps into your app so that when your community members open your app first thing on their way to your church, they have all the info they need. This feature is perfect for first time visitors!
Before your community even walks through your church doors, sending a push notification with a short teaser about what to expect that day is one small gesture to help your community feel excited about the weekend service.
If you need to share some announcements or an order of service, digital bulletins are the perfect feature to give your congregation a glimpse of what to expect that weekend.
Help first time guests feel welcome by adding a vistor card to your app. Remove any barriers to people getting connected and make newcomers feel even more at home at your church!
This brand new tool promotes deeper engagement in your app by letting your community follow along with your message. Not only can you create custom fill in the blank notes for each sermon, you can provide a space for free-form journaling, or simple outlines.
Stay tuned for next week's post with 6 more features for your weekend gathering! In the meantime, get in touch with us about creating your app!
