Due to COVID-19, many churches around the country are canceling Sunday gatherings and moving services online. A significant number of you, our customers, have been using Clearstream to communicate these changes to your church community via text message.

In this series, we'll walk through the laws and guidelines for texting inside of your church. We'll also discuss the different numbers (long codes and short codes) you can use for texting in your church. We created this video series to help you understand the nuances of texting and the best practices for developing an effective strategy for your church.
