I NEED HELP!
1. I signed up for text reminders but am not receiving them.
If you have previously enrolled in our Help & Hope messaging program and then decided to send STOP to stop receiving the messages, you will have to first send START to 55753 and then you can sign up for text message reminders.Otherwise, the text reminders will not work.
2. I signed up for text messages under the Monday meeting. Will I only get reminders for the Monday meetings - or for other days and times too?
No. You will only get reminders for the Monday meeting. If you attend the Monday and the Wednesday meeting, you will follow the simple sign-up process for both the Monday and the Wednesday meetings separately. The reminders will then be sent to you 15 min before each scheduled time for that meeting.
3. I would like to STOP receiving the meeting reminders. What do I do?
Please text the word STOP to 55753 or simply reply with STOP to the meeting reminder text message. If you do this, you will stop receiving reminders for the meeting(s) AND the daily Help & Hope messages (if you are also receiving those). To restart only the Help & Hope messages, you will need to text the word START to 55753 and you will begin receiving your Help & Hope messages again. Then, you will need to sign up for each meeting reminder you want to receive if you wish to receive reminders for any meetings.
