Three Amazing ways to upgrade your use of QR Codes with Text-to-Church

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 6/15/21 10:30 AM
QR (Quick Response) codes are the future.  At least that's what we were told - 10 years ago.  But, they never really took off.  We tried them. You probably tried them. 
 
They did not go away, but their adoption definitely sputtered.  However, two events in recent years seem to be catalizing QR codes to their promised level of prominence.

How to disciple (engage, follow-up) your online only crowd.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 2/16/21 1:15 PM

The ways churches are meeting at this point in the pandemic are as diverse as the church itself.  I know great churches that haven't met live on Sundays since March of last year.  And I know great churches that have been meeting live since July and now don't even require masks or social distance.  This is the beauty of God's design and the difference in the communities our churches serve.

Our new world of Check-in. Matrix of options.

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 10/28/20 10:45 AM

None of us will forget 2020, that's for sure.  As churches are starting to meet back, it's good to see check-in start to pick up again.  Here are a few blog posts since Covid started on ways we've adapted check-in to this new world.

Room Check-in, Count and Close
Medical Affirmation Before Check-in?
Text-to-Check-in for Virtual Attenders

As both veteran and new clients are thinking about their new approach to check-in, we often get asked if we can accommodate their different ideas.  Because our system is so robust we are almost always able to accommodate.

New!  Use the Office Number for Text-to-Church

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 4/14/20 2:00 PM
Talk about convenient.  Just text the word GIVE to the church office number to make or set up a donation.  HELP provides a short tutorial. EVENTS sends a list of keywords to choose from to give or join anything.  
 
CHECK enhances security and captures attendance - even if watching the service online.  ME goes to my personal page in the database.  Add Links with your keywords to go anywhere on the Internet. 
 
The great thing about this upgrade is that the number is already in the contacts for many of the people who attend your church.  They call it to talk to staff.  But now they can text it to do everything else.

Not connecting on Sundays?  This NEW Text-to-Checkin upgrade can help!

Posted by Boyd Pelley on 3/31/20 3:00 PM

All of us miss being together on Sundays but we're finding new paths to stay connected.  Like the creative ways many of you are using Text-to-Church to help.

One recent idea was to use All Check to have people text to let us know they were watching the live-stream or video.  It also gives them an opportunity to respond, give and stay informed.  Like a church bulletin, but on steroids.

But there was a problem.  The system required starting up a label printer in order to use Check-in.  So, we changed development priorities last week and are excited to release an upgrade to Check-in that allows you to create an automatic check-in start up schedule without having to start a label printer.
