Text messages are a super effective way to reach your church members or community in a matter of seconds. Sending an SMS text can actually build a greater sense of fellowship during the week. Church messages can be encouraging and inspiring for members who need a quick pick-me-up during the day.
The best part? SMS messaging doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, neither does email. Both text messages and emails are quick, cost-effective options to connect with people immediately.
Generate headlines, content, and even photos using AI in our Drag & Drop email builder!
Powerful AI features allow church admins that build drag and drop emails to use artificial intelligence to generate quality text and graphics. For example, you can enter in prompts like “meadow” to automatically generate photos of meadows they can use in the email. Or allow AI to suggest improvements to make your email headings and call to actions more catchy and creative.
This will help churches level up the quality of their emails and make connecting with church members easier than ever!
Tithe.ly Messaging does what Mailchimp, Constant Contact, Text In Church, and the others do but built with the church in mind.
