Pre-Created Automated Emails

There are several Automated Emails that are already set up for you.  You will want to change the message so it is your church's own wording and contact information.  If you are not going to be using one of the automated emails, we recommend that you uncheck the Active box so that it is not accidently included in the Automated Processes.  You can create more Auto Emails from the Administration page on the Automated Email link.

Here is a short list of examples that can be emailed with the click of a button:

  1. Attenders - First Time Last Sunday: Send an email to all first time guests thanking them for coming and offering further information.

  2. Attenders - Second Time Last Sunday: Send an email to all second time guests from the Senior Pastor that relays a warmer feel and an update on current events at the church.

  3. Attenders - Third Time Last Sunday: Send an email to all third-time guests from the ministry pastor that informs guests of ministries available to serve them or in which they may choose to serve.  A current list of ministries & leaders is generated from the database and attached to the email.
