All New!
South Church Text Alert System

Announcing a ground-up revamping of the South Church text alert system for mobile phones. This system used for church service cancellation messages and for important church-wide alerts. Standard texting rates will apply. Signing up is super simple, and so is stopping the alerts, if you choose.
  • To add yourself to the list, text ‘add’ to (517) 322-2000
  • To stop receiving our messages, text ‘stop’ to (517) 322-2000

Please note: Due to problems with the previous platform, previous users will need to sign up for this entirely new system. If you don’t know if you are signed up for the new system, text ‘add’ to (517) 322-2000, and you will be signed up, or told that you are already signed up! This system was updated 11/14/2019.

Texts may come from (517) 322-2000, an assigned number from the company (517) 225-0522 or a special shortcode 77411

In the case of treacherous weather or other unexpected problems that cause the closing of the church, a message will be placed on the Web site at, notices posted to the South Church Facebook page, and a text will be sent to those who have signed up for this list.
