Cards in Church Connect can be customized with images of your choosing. This helps each card stand out and gives you the opportunity to make your Connect app unique.
ChurchTrac offers free templates in Canva to help you do this.
Canva is an application that allows you to quickly create professional images, much like Photoshop, but easier to learn and free to use.
This program gives your church the opportunity to create professional media for social media, sermon slides, bulletins, and more. You can also use it to make images for your Connect cards.
If you want your church's Connect page to look professional and unique, but don't know where to begin, we put together templates in Canva that you can edit to fit your needs.
There are two template types to choose from:
Using these images will make your Connect cards appear as squares. These images are 1200 pixels wide and 1200 pixels tall. Change the colors, fonts, and text to further personalize the cards for your church.
Using these images will make your Connect cards appear as rectangles. These images are 1200 pixels wide and 600 pixels tall. Change the colors, fonts, and text to further personalize the cards for your church.
Each template package has multiple pages to choose from. You can select only the ones you want and edit them. These templates are fully customizable.
You can customize the background color, font & font color, image or icon, and any other element of the template to make it match your church's colors and character.
