See What You Can Do With Text Messaging

Connect with Church Members Using Text Messaging

At Contact Consumers, we offer mass SMS texting services to empower church leaders to foster meaningful communication with churchgoers directly through their smartphones.


What Is Church Text Messaging?

At Contact Consumers, we have created text messaging for churches as a way for churches and other religious organizations to send important texts to people who have agreed to be contacted.

Church leaders who use this service have found that it is an effective way to boost attendance at church services, get the word out about events, and check in with new visitors.

Text messaging is also ideal for announcements that need to be broadcast to a wide audience. Because two-way communication is involved, church text messaging can also be used to collect contact information from members.

Our communication tools for churches also include the ability to send emails. This approach can be used to create a variety of campaigns to increase membership, raise funds, and get more people involved in church ministries.

How We Can Help

Benefits of Church Texting and Emailing from Contact Consumers

Increasing Attendance at Church Events

If increasing attendance at church events is a priority, we offer different options for members and guests to communicate. When deploying solutions from Contact Consumers, you make it easy for folk to interface using the two easiest and most popular forms of communication there are.

We provide solutions that allow you to send personalized text messages to dozens of congregants or engage individuals in direct conversations. All of this is made simple with an exceptionally easy user interface and great customer service. Create a broadcast email campaign or send text messages with ease — it’s really that intuitive.

Letting People Choose How They Want to Communicate

People want to be connected with their church. New visitors want to learn more and find ways to get involved. Active church members seek connection and the ability to keep up with church news. However, they may not be responsive to communication methods they find to be intrusive, outdated, or just inconvenient.

Engaging text messages are helpful because so many people use their phones constantly. Also, Contact Consumers offers a library of templates. These are customized for use on days of observance. They also provide the perfect tool for sending invitations to events, offering thanks, and sharing gratitude.

Engaging New Parishioners

Does your church ask visitors to sign a guestbook? If you added a space for a phone number and email address, you could get new visitors to opt-in to receive your texts and emails on church updates.

When you are going to send texts or emails to groups of people, you must have their permission. This sign-up process gives you that permission so that you can send welcome messages and other useful information. The ready-to-use welcome and transactional templates that Contact Consumers has created are of great quality and perfect for this type of ongoing engagement.

Encouraging and Inspiring Your Audience

SMS messaging and email technology are perfect for inspiring and encouraging church members every day. Church leaders can send out uplifting or educational messages to members who are interested in receiving such communications. This setup could be especially helpful for churches with members who struggle with isolation.

Have members of your church body expressed an interest in learning more about scripture, church doctrine, or history? Church texts and emails are great tools for sending out relevant facts or even brief lessons.

Coordinate Outreach Efforts

When church or community members struggle with grief, illness, loneliness, or other issues, they often lean on religious organizations for the help they need. Churches may arrange to clean and repair the homes of older citizens, deliver meals to struggling families, and even become a source of holiday giving for folks who would ordinarily be left out of these celebrations.

However, these efforts only work if they are coordinated effectively. Without good communication, efforts may be duplicated. Worse, important tasks may be missed entirely. Thanks to two-way messaging, members can be recruited and let leaders know which responsibilities they are willing to take on. This setup also makes it easy to schedule volunteers for hands-on outreach tasks.

Strengthening Various Church Missions

Most churches have several missions they are pursuing at any given time. These may include foreign ministry, healthcare missions, church building, support for new members, and early childhood education. It takes constant, refined communication to help these missions succeed — including ensuring they have adequate funding.

The people in charge of these various missions will find that church texting from Contact Consumers helps to automate the task of communicating with mission committee members and the church membership as a whole.

Engaging Youth Ministries

You probably won’t find a group of people more familiar with technology and engaged with their smartphones than youth pastors and youth group members. When you implement church texting and email, you will most likely see the fastest adoption in this particular ministry.

A church that has an active, exciting youth ministry is virtually guaranteed future growth and engagement. Sadly, it’s always disappointing when youth-oriented events and classes have poor attendance. It’s even worse when youth groups simply never generate much interest. All of these things can be helped when youth and their parents are kept in the loop with real-time communication using text messaging.

Fostering Better Relationships Within the Church

Leadership and volunteer coordinators can use church text messaging to get the help they need. Imagine sending out a simple text message to get help on an important project or simply getting someone to cover the church office for a few hours. Church texting makes it easy to get help.

Every person who has agreed to receive messages will know you are looking for assistance in just minutes. This approach ensures you get the help you need and keeps members involved. Text messaging services from Contact Consumers use reliable technology. Your messages will always reach the intended phone or other devices.

Try Church Texting and Learn More

It’s so important to keep congregations and potential church members engaged. Communication is what makes church outreach and missions succeed. At the same time, church leadership often spends too much time communicating with members manually without automation. This approach leaves too little time for pastoral work.

Church text messaging helps ensure that information always reaches the intended audience without taking over too much of your time.
