(July 23, 2015) – Push notifications aren’t new. But among all communication channels, they’re definitely the most direct form of contact. After all, push messages are the only communication that goes directly to users’ phones—right in their palm—no matter where they are.

Yet, 35% of consumers who subscribe to mobile marketing say they aren’t getting relevant messaging. So where’s the disconnect?

Push isn’t just another way to blast messages. They’re a way to connect with your church on a more personal, more service-oriented level, bringing them information they can’t get anywhere else.

To help you do that, we’ve put together 42 example push notifications in various categories of church engagement that you can use to get your program off the ground. Here’s a sneak peek of some of our recommended content for your next push:
