What is church@lerts?
church@lerts is a service designed to give churches a high-quality text message alert system for much less than traditional alert systems. The text messages are free for your members (their carriers' standard SMS rates apply).
With church@lerts, you can update your entire congregation or only members in select groups with the press of a button. Many churches use church@lerts for closings, delays, prayer requests, weekly announcements, reminders, and special notices. How you use it is up to you; we simply provide the tools for your ministry.
How does church@lerts work?
When you sign up for church@lerts, you get access to an embed code or link that you can put on your own website. Your members sign up using that form, or you can sign them up manually. You then log in to your account and can send messages and manage users.
church@lerts stores your members' info for you so all you have to do is write an alert once and click send. Our system then sends your alert to your congregation via a standard text message. We don't ever use "premium" text messages and we never use your members' numbers outside of delivering your alerts.
Why choose church@lerts?
church@lerts offers the best alert service tailored specifically to churches. We offer excellent prices because we want to help you spread the Word.
church@lerts is also unique in how it can integrate with your existing website. We offer an embed code—a snippet of HTML—that can be placed on your church's website or blog for an integrated signup process. Your members then visit your site to sign up for your alerts.
