11 Ways to Serve Your Community This Sunday- Part II

In Part 1 of this series we looked at some engaging features that can help you engage your audience on Sunday morning. Here are a few more!

We believe that engaged communities are giving communities. With Subsplash Giving right in your app you can witness tangible growth with our quick and easy mobile giving solution.

Easy social sharing in your Subsplash app allows your community to share your media, an event, and even email a friend their sermon notes if they couldn't make it to church that weekend. 

As a complement to your weekend message, including a Bible tab in your app will allow your congregation to follow along as you lead them through the Bible.  

Have an upcoming event that you want to extend an invitation to from the pulpit? Integrating calendars into your app is easy and allows your community to add church events to their calendar on the spot!

Making an invitation to serve? You can add a sign up form to your app so that volunteers can sign up on the spot and not have to remember later on in the week.

To help people feel connected on an ongoing basis, create a connect form in your app so that people can quickly and easily find a group that's convenient for them to visit. 

Our team of Mobile Experts is available to help all of our Subsplash clients and set them up for success. Our trained App Specialist will walk with you every step of the way to get these features set up!

We'd love to chat with you about setting up an app for your organization! 

Increase Engagement For Easter with Your App!

Easter services are the most highly attended weekends for churches, so why not take advantage of the opportunity to share the Gospel and good news of the risen Christ by leveraging your app to engage with first time guests as well as committed members?

Here are some ideas to increase engagement with your community this Easter Sunday...

1.  Send a group push notification to Easter volunteers

Group push notifications are the perfect tool to get in touch with your Easter Sunday volunteers. If you need to send out instructions, new information, or specific prayer requests about Easter weekend, this is the best way to do it!

No more wrangling everyone up for last minute meetings or trying to reach everyone by email in the hope that it will somehow get to your volunteers in time. Just create your push notification group and send up-to-the second updates straight to their phone.

2. Share last year's Easter Sunday sermon

You might have last year's Easter Sunday sermon sitting in your archives somewhere. To get your community ready and excited for Easter weekend, you could share last year's sermon in a linked push notification, on your blog, or social media.

3. Share baptism sign up forms in a linked push notification

Make it as easy as possible for people in your community to get baptized by sending out a push notification with a link to a sign up form. Sending sign up forms ahead of time will help you get in front of all of the Easter Sunday busyness!

4. Share baptism testimonies on your blog

You've probably witnessed some amazing stories of life transformation at past Easter services in your church. Why not encourage your community and get them excited to celebrate Easter by sharing those stories on your blog? 

5. Tell your community to share the app with friends

With so many visitors making their way to church on Easter Sunday, it is a great evangelistic opportunity. To help get visitors warmed up to the idea of attending your church this weekend, send out a push notification to your community reminding them that they can share your entire app with their friends.

When members of your congregation share your church's app, it will give visitors an idea of what they can expect when they visit your church for Easter.

Happy Easter from all of us at Subsplash!
