At Saint Francis we believe that all Christians have an “inner Franciscan” in them! You know, the part that wants to live life differently and honor God while ensuring that all God’s creatures are well-attended to! Deep down, it’s the part of each of us that wants to move a little to the side of life’s busyness, relax, let go, and breathe deeply again so we can develop an intense and personal relationship with our God.
For this inner Friar to develop and thrive, prayer, respite, and nourishment are key. St. Francis once told us that “where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear not ignorance”. In our world today, we need ways to connect more deeply to hold onto the great inner truth found only in God.
At Saint Francis, we pray several times a day because we know that prayer changes us, and the world around us. Now we challenge you to do the same by praying at least twice a day and using the tools for you here in a very special app that connects you to us, and to our hearts, now available for both Android and iOS devices.
Download the App today…it’s like having a church in your pocket!
Some of our App features include:
||Our Saint Francis mobile church app gives our on-the-go congregation the latest sermon in the form of notes and audio feeds right on their phone or tablet. Our parish basically goes wherever they go!
|BLOGS AND DAILY DEVOTIONALS
||Use our mobile church app to connect with us by sharing our ministry insights. Use these features as a daily or weekly devotional! Imagine the cohesiveness and unity when the entire Church follows the same devotional and teaching schedule. One heart. One mind!
|EVENTS, SUNDAY BULLETIN & NEWSLETTERS
||Our new church app allows us to effortlessly communicate with our parishioners by giving us the ability to communicate upcoming events, publish our weekly newsletter, and even upload weekly Sunday bulletins, all within the Saint Francis App itself!
|MAPS & DRIVING DIRECTIONS
||Instead of using a plain printed map in your car, or a uploaded map without assistance to your smart phone, our new church app map section makes use of the Apple and Android build-in map/direction software. This allows you to know where we are, and also get driving and GPS turn-by-turn directions right to our church doors!
|PUSH NOTIFICATIONS & CALENDAR
||Instead of creating a printed bulletin or newsletter or waiting to announce upcoming events just on Sundays, all of which waste God’s earthly resources, we simply send reminders or updates using push notifications from within our church app! Some of the many things to communicate through a push notification include calendar reminders, event reminders, invitations, bible studies, Small Groups, prayer alerts, schedule changes, children PREP schedules, and many more.
|SHARE. CONNECT. SOCIALIZE
||Use our church app’s connect section that provides a direct connection to all of our wonderful social media channels such as Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter!
Connect with us on our social platforms.
