American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin wrote an essay called “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” to the editor of The Journal of Paris in 1784. In the essay, he suggested, although jokingly, that Parisians could economize candle usage by getting people out of bed earlier in the morning, making use of the natural morning light instead. Little could anyone have predicted that off handed remark would have led to the launch of the “daylight saving” system that is employed today!
November 6th is once again when people across our country will “fall back” and get an extra hour of sleep. Church leaders are acutely aware of daylight savings because the transition to the new time table always happens on a Sunday. Even though in the fall it generally means a few people showing up early at your church, in the spring it can result in people not coming because they forgot to change a few clocks around their house. Ensuring your people are aware of the change in time is a common courtesy to your community, and it’s great way to recall your people to attend your church once again.
We’ve pulled together a 4 pack of fall daylight saving graphics that are ready to use on your social networks on screen at your church. [Click here to sign up to have them delivered to your inbox now.]
We’ve also provided the “source files” so a designer can modify the graphics to fit your church’s needs. For instance, you might want to put your churches logo on each one to drive consistency or you might want to tweak them with some other minor modifications. Of course, you could also use Design Pickle’s flat rate, unlimited revision service to modify these designs.
