Text Messages for Your Church

Connection Card Pro offers text messaging add-on for all Connection Card Pro accounts, providing your church with a powerful text messaging service to keep in contact with your members and to better communicate with new guests. Connection Card Pro's text message add-on is a cost-effective alternative to similar text message apps for your church which can often be expensive and limited in functionality. The text message add-on works directly with Connection Card Pro. You won't have to switch between multiple web sites or accounts and you'll save time!

Your church or ministry can choose your own, dedicated local 10-digit number!
- No shared numbers.
- No spammy-looking short codes.
A local number just for you!

Additional numbers, toll-free numbers (800,877,888) and shortcodes are also available.

The Benefits of Connection Card Pro
  • Unlimited Keywords
  • Automated Responses
  • Automated links for Giving, Event Registration, or Online Forms
  • Personalized communication in batch
  • One-on-one two-way communication

Digital Connect Cards for New Guests

Make it easy to collect contact information from new guests. Be done with data entry and deciphering poor handwriting. New guests can text a custom keyword and will receive an instant automated response to complete your digital guest card.

Alert Parents when Kids Require their Attention

With Connection Card Pro, you can collect parents' mobile numbers when they register their kids with your childrens' ministry or nursery. If you require the parents' attention, tap a button to send an automated text to alert them. Teachers/leaders won't even have to type the message.

Stay in Contact with Members

Use Connection Card Pro to easily send out reminders and updates to stay in touch with members. It's as easy as starting a group chat, except it's not a group chat! Type the message once, select the recipients from your list of members (or choose a pre-existing group or list), and click send.

A personalized text message will be sent to each member individually. Members can reply, and their messages will be viewable online in your Connection Card Pro account. You're able to continue the conversation one-on-one. This makes it easy for all staff and leaders to respond to messages from members, saving you time and headache!

Put an end to passing the church office cell phone around to various staff!
(And save money, Connection Card Pro is much more affordable than a cell phone plan!)

Unlimited Incoming Messages

You can't control what people send you, so why pay for it? Incoming messages do not count toward your limit. We only charge for outgoing messages.

Unlimited Keywords

Because your number is dedicated to your organization, you have full control over an unlimited number of keywords! You are not sharing your number with any other organization!

Member Updates via Text

If you are sending a reminder or a customized text message to 100 members, this counts as 100 text messages.

Multiple Numbers

If you require multiple numbers, additional 10-digit local numbers can be linked to your account for $2/mo per number.

Toll-Free Numbers

Toll-Free numbers are also available for an additional $2.50/mo!


Shortcodes feel spammy, they're also expensive. For those reasons we (and many others) don't like them. But, if you'd really like a shortcode, we can make it happen. We can acquire a dedicated shortcode for your account (meaning you won't share it with any other organization). Shortcodes are limited in availability and start at $550/mo. Shortcodes require a minimum 6-month commitment and have a one-time setup fee which we pass-thru from the telecommunication providers. Contact us directly for information about setting up a shortcode with Connection Card Pro

Soft Limits

SMS Text Message limits are soft limits. You will not be charged overage fees for going over your limit once in a while. If you do reach your limit, the New Guest and Parent Alert features will continue to function, but the ability to send text message updates will be limited. However, if you do exceed your limit often or multiple months in a row, we may ask you to upgrade to the next level.

How is your service so much more affordable?

There are two primary reasons why Connection Card Pro's Text Messaging Service is substantially more affordable than other text message services. First, our text message service is not our primary business, it's an add-on. We use a large SMS service provider and simply pass the savings on to our customers. This means, that unlike some text services, we aren't trying to run a business solely off of text messaging.

Secondly, Connection Card Pro is committed to providing high-quality, software solutions for churches and ministries of all sizes at an affordable price. Small churches with small budgets can now afford great church manangement software, and large churches with large budgets will spend less on software and have more available for serving their community, supporting missions around the world, or renovating old buildings.

We are Kingdom-Minded

At Connection Card Pro we are first and foremost committed to serving the Kingdom!
