Weekend announcements are limited to events that impact the entire congregation or are helpful for our first time guests. They are not used to promote ongoing events. Communications that fall outside these guidelines can be presented in other ways including pre-service slides in worship and/or a notice in our weekly newsletter.
Generally, promotions run for three weeks prior to the event date. Include the who, what, why, when and where of the event. Could an uninformed person hear or read my announcement and understand what is being said?
Include any special instructions, and forward any suggested artwork or media.
If you are considering printing postcards, posters, banners, tee shirts, etc. to promote a ministry or event, please refer to our Brand Standards Usage policy.
