These six words usually bring a smile to church webmasters’ faces: “for more details, check the website.” But what about if you’re sitting peacefully at church when a speaker concludes an announcement with those six words…in reference to an event you’ve never heard of and that you’re pretty sure doesn’t appear on your site?
I usually grab a bulletin to start scrawling notes on–assuming I was paying attention and not distracted by picking up a toy dropped by my youngest–and then try to intercept the speaker after Mass. How do you respond? What do you do to avoid such situations at your church?

I know exactly what you’re talking about! It doesn’t seem to happen as much as it used to. I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s because we have a web announcement board where leaders can post their own info. Or it could be because we do brief training in August of every year. Or it could just be that years of nagging pays.
It’s a high class problem to have and beats the alternative of the site being ignored. We’ve made a lot of progress in this area. I’ll have to check out your announcement board to see how that works.
