Like most churches, ours has a couple of announcements each week, generally tied in as a closer to the gathering. One of our staff members plays gate-keeper on what gets announced and when. For the weekends, she creates a cheat sheet for us to bring on stage with the list and key information so we aren’t doing that annoying thing where you turn around to look at the screen because you forgot the dates of the women’s retreat or whatever. Recently our cheat sheets got a major upgrade. One night, while I couldn’t sleep, I turned on one of the late night talk shows and saw the host doing his monologue. I noticed that he had a large card stock piece of paper in his hand with the shows logo on the crowd-facing side and his cheat sheet notes on the other side. It struck me as a very simple way to dress up our announcement cheat sheet. We also use it for other times in our gatherings when a note-card is helpful. It’s a simple and cheap idea that I pass onto you. It looks great from the congregation and is simple upgrade. No need to belabor this. Check out the front and back pic below. Many thanks to staff members, Amanda Wright and Jeff Amato for making this a reality.
