How to Make Announcements at Your Church
Making a strong series of announcements at your church leading up to the parade event is very important! Here are some guidelines for making a strong announcement:
- Use pre-written bullet point notes outlining the major points that you want to communicate (see below for ideas)
- Speak clearly and slowly. Practice your announcement at home several times before doing it at your Church
- Studies show that a person needs to hear something 3 times before they remember it. It is ideal to make 3 announcements in the weeks leading up to the parade
- Be direct and to the point… do not drag out the announcement
