How to hold a Signup Sunday (and encourage Text-to-Join)
When you are ready to hold a Signup Sunday – introducing your new communication ability to your congregation, and have them use the Text-to-Join process (more on text-to-join here) – here's the simple step-by-step:
- Download, edit, and print out our handy Signup Sunday script: Sample announcement script
- Email Flocknote (at firstname.lastname@example.org) to get your customized Launch Card and 8.5x11 flyer graphics
- Drop a graphic like the one below in your bulletin a week prior to the announcement, to remind folks to bring their phones to church.
On Sunday, make a clear and enthusiastic announcement, following the script, and after handing out the custom cards/flyers.
NOTE: We also have these member info sheets that are helpful in providing more details as to why you are using Flocknote and what it means for your member.
