From announcements to sermons — from concerts to community events, digital signage is giving houses of worship new ways to connect to their congregations.

When a guest speaker joins the program, digital signs can display short biographies and photos. And when missionaries come home to present their work, large digital dis¬plays serve as the perfect tool for displaying photos of their achievements and congregations overseas.
Digital displays can do much more than just engage a congregation. They can also inform visitors about events going on around the facility. This saves the trouble and waste of printing up hundreds of paper leaflets, and distributing them to each visitor— a bene¬fit that, in itself, makes digital displays well worth the investment.
For example, First Baptist Church of Greenville, North Carolina, implement¬ed digital signage throughout their entire campus, including screens in the main foyer displaying announcements and news, large displays in the sanctuary featuring times of services and other church events.
Smaller boards in other areas offer in¬formation on community gatherings and animated displays showcasing member birthdays, anniversaries, births, and other celebration-worthy milestones. And screens outside each of the campus’s classrooms and event spaces can even provide up-to-date details about what’s happening inside. In all these ways, First Baptist of Greenville uses digital signage to bring its congregation closer together.
