The Times They Are-a-Changin’ !
Time change is coming soon and you’ll be reminding people to “spring forward.” Nobody will be excited about losing that hour of sleep, but this is a great opportunity to have some fun and flex your creative muscle. Here’s 3 ways to sound the alarm, and some extra funny additions.
1. “Punny” Social Media Posts
This method is by far the “punniest” way of staying on top of the clock. A play on words implies you don’t take yourselves too seriously, a nod towards the grace your congregation will need when a few of them inevitably still miss the message. If your church has a social media presence, try sharing your message on Facebook or Twitter and inviting your followers to share the post! Not only is this a great way to spread the news about setting the clock, but it’s also a free advertisement. So, be sure to include your Church’s name and service times in the post.

2. Word of Mouth … Sent from your Children’s Ministry!
No visuals here, this is all a trick of the verbal trade. Have a children’s ministry running while the adults are in the sanctuary? Send the message home with those K-5th graders! When mom and dad ask “what did you learn today?”, after sharing the Gospel, your tiniest church members can say “We learned what daylight savings is!”. Cuteness overload so deep, parents might just miss the fact that they’ll be missing an hour of Z’s… well, in theory.
3. Meme-Friendly Emails
Sending your congregation weekly updates via email is always better when they have something to laugh at. For this week’s time conscious email, jazz it up with a funny “Gif” or meme and everyone reading will thank you! Here are some of our favorites.
And, Some More Inspiration. Happy Daylight Savings!
