Fall Back: Help Your Church Remember Daylight Savings

Fall Back: Help Your Church Remember Daylight Savings

October 28, 2014 by

In the church world, we all know the importance of Sunday worship times. Which is exactly why it is crucial we remind our often-forgetful congregations about adjusting their clocks for Daylight Savings Time.

That’s this weekend. We’re supposed to ‘fall back’ this coming Sunday morning, November 2, and set our clocks back an hour.

While this means another hour of sleep for those who remember, it can also mean showing up an hour early to church for those who forget. Avoid these awkward situations by dropping subtle hints to the congregation on your communication platforms.

Help ’Em Fall Back

  • A simple reminder can be huge. Post an image to Facebook or your favorite social network (we’ve got an image you can use below) reminding folks to fall back.
  • If you’ve got emails going out this week, be sure to put in a quick reminder.
  • Have a gracious plan for those who forget. Show up an hour early with donuts.

Corey Grunewald has made this even easier by designing a ‘Fall Back’ graphic free for anyone to download and use. He’s got a JPG and PSD file, so he makes it easy. Thanks Corey!
