Engage Your Congregation


If you’ve been involved in a church for any length of time, you’ve experienced this scene: each Sunday morning, your congregants are welcomed and handed a paper bulletin with the important updates on the life of the church: upcoming events, special announcements, prayer requests, and reports on various ministries.

One of two things happen with that bulletin. Either, the worshipper disengages and reads the bulletin during the sermon, or they toss it on their way out the door and wonder why they didn’t know about the church picnic. Sound familiar?

Communicating well with your church body is essential to the health of your congregation. It can be hard for houses of worship, in particular, to re-think their communications strategy in the digital age, though, especially if you’ve been doing this awhile. As churches age, younger and newer attendees will be more likely to engage with the life of your church if you meet them where they are and connect digitally.

Positioning digital signage throughout the lobbies, at child drop-off & pick-up, outside of Sunday School classrooms, ensures that your messages and updates will be highly visible and captivating, repeated and synced, without filling the paper bin. What’s more, the customizable display allows you to go well beyond the limits of the church bulletin.

Incorporate video and full-color images into your Retriever playlists, without the need of increasing your staff size. Retrievers are simple to program (even if your staff is techno-phobic) and feature easily customized templates that anyone can program in a few moments. Because announcements can be scheduled to turn on and off when they’re relevant, Retrievers take one thing off the plate of your already over-stretched staff.

You get enough feedback from your congregation; let us fix the communication issues. Reach out via email and let’s talk about incorporating Retriever screens into your house of worship.
