Important Scripture Text Information:

Since 2011, I have been sending out a Scripture Text 6 days a week. Some days have been right on track and others have missed by a day or two. During this time, the list has grown. There have been many people added and others have dropped off.

When the list started, I did it on my personal cell phone. As you can imagine, it was difficult to keep up with subscribers and messages of normal life.

Two years into the list, I decided to utilize the Remind Text Message service that school and other organizations were using. This free service was typically available just for schools, but I contacted them and got the “ok” to use it for our service.

Using the Remind Text messages service has run well until a few months ago. Because of changes in the Terms and Conditions of the Remind service, the Scripture Text message service is limited to a certain number of subscribers.

This limitation has affected the list and the amount of people available on the list. This has left me in a search for a new service, but each one is extremely costly.

It would be good to keep in mind that I am using Remind for a few other lists: a Motivational Text list and text message list for our congregation; each of these lists have grown.

Currently, I am searching for a new option for the Scripture Text Message list, and the others, but I cannot find on that works best without a large monthly payment.

If anyone knows of any sites or services that may be of use, please let me know. You can send me a text message on the Remind App or just reply to a Daily Text.

Without finding a new service, the list will stop growing and it will limit our encouragement reach.

Pray for this effort that another option may be found.

Below are the options I am considering. Let me know if you prefer one or none.

  • Option #1 – Ask for a minimum donation of $15/year per user to keep the text going on another service.
  • Option #2 – Keep using the Remind Service, but only have a limited number of users. (We are at this point now)
  • Option #3 – Move the list back to a personal contact list.
  • Option #4 – Stop the list.

As I mentioned, these are the current options, but one of these looks to be the way to go.

Thanks for reading.

Remember, I appreciate any thoughts.
