5 Reopening Email Templates

These pre-written emails will help you communicate with clarity, care, and concern and offer the hope and consistency that people need in these uncertain times.

Knowing what to say can be a big leadership hurdle right now, but that’s understandable. We’ve never been in a situation like this before and “pastoring through a pandemic” isn’t taught in seminary. But that’s why we created those twelve prewritten emails—to help you save time and communicate well. 

You can serve through communicating and these emails can help you get started.

How to use these emails

Customize and Schedule.

Add the details that matter for your church and use an email service like MailChimp, Constant Contact, or Mailerlite to schedule the emails to send over the next few weeks.


Take the ideas, shorten the text, and use it as content for social media or text messages to your congregation.


Set up a team of volunteers to handle sending the emails or dividing the content into topics for phone calls or text message check-ins.
