Text In Church provides you with a local 10-digit phone number to use for your texting needs.
You can choose the number from the available ones in your area code.
You will want to post this number in your bulletin, use it on welcome slides, and announce it along with any Keywords you might want the congregation to text in with to join Groups. You want them to know this number and be familiar with it.
You want to encourage church members to save that number in their phone book/contact records on your cell phone so they recognize it when you are reaching out to them.
Be sure to note, that whatever you save that number as in your phone book, that is how it will appear on your phone. You can save it as the name of your church!
