I got an email from a media director at a local church asking for some input on how her church ought to handle Sunday morning announcements, and I thought I’d pass the question on to you.
Let’s say that you need 50 more volunteers to help out in the children’s ministry — how would you get the word out?
Would you make the announcement from the stage? Or do you do video announcements? Who delivers your announcements — someone who’s good at it or someone random every week? Or do you reject Sunday morning announcements because you find they kill the momentum?
Do you pair your Sunday morning announcements with information in the print bulletin, information on your website, or information in a weekly email blast?
Sorry for all the questions, but you guys are the practitioners. You’re creative, you’re savvy, you have good taste, and so I’m eager to see what you do (and what you think might be better).
