FBCJC Text Alerts

Texting is a great way to communicate important information to our church family. Inclement weather? Reminder of important event, deadline or schedule change? Texting is the quickest way to receive an update.

To sign up for text alerts, click the image below and input your name and phone number. You will also be asked to click one or more groups from which to receive text alerts. (Having problems? Find helps below.)

  • Click the “FBC JC” group to receive text alerts related to church-wide announcements.
  • Click the “Refuge JC” group to receive text alerts related to the youth ministry of First Baptist.

You can also sign up quickly for church-wide announcements by texting FBCJC to 313131 on your smartphone. (Input 313131 into the field for names or phone numbers and FBCJC in the messages area.) Once you hit send it will send you a confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation:

Make sure you input FBCJC before pressing send.

Make sure auto-correct did not change your message to “FBC JC”. It has to be one word.

If you get an error message, you may need to change your permissions to accept shortcode (the 313131). You can find step-by-step instructions for that here for Sprint phones, or for other carriers, contact your service’s technical support.
