Our church has used Constant Contact since 2014. We mainly use it to communicate through two emails each week. The first, sent on Tuesdays, is an announcement of events, activities, new staff, etc. The second email, sent Fridays, is a look ahead at the coming Sunday and includes a reflection or meditation from our pastor. The Friday "RevSpeaks" is also scheduled to post on Facebook, so our community can link to it there and we have an additional presence in social media for those searching for connection. We also send additional prayer request emails when someone in our community passes away, or if an important message from our church conference needs to be shared. In the past, we've utilized daily emails through Lent or Advent to send scripture and meditations specific to the season to try to connect the community through shared devotions. During the pandemic our Children's and Youth Director also used Constant Contact to send emails specifically to the families of our youngest community members filled with ideas and links to activity sheets. Hope this is helpful and you find terrific was to connect with your community.
