Bulletin QR Code FAQ

1. What is a QR code?

Think of it as a smart shortcut to a place online, eg, a page on our church website, or, a PDF stored there. 

2. How do I use a QR code?

Download an app for it on your phone or tablet. Fire up the app and point your device camera at the QR code. That’s it. The app will automatically work the moment it reads the QR code, and will start downloading the bulletin to your device on its own.

UPDATE: With an iPhone and iPad that has been updated (iOS 11 and later, on an iPhone 5s, iPad mini 2, iPad Air or newer model), launch the camera and point it at the QR code. The camera automatically picks the QR code and an option will pop up near the top of the screen. Tap the pop-up and you will go the webpage. It’s that simple – no QR code app needed

3. Are all the bulletin QR codes the same?

They are all different. Each QR code is designed to automatically download the bulletin for the service for that day at the worship venue you are at.
But the QR code printed in your bulletin is special – it leads to a page on our church website where all the bulletins available online are stored.

4. Why is the text in the bulletin PDF small?

It’s pretty much what you have in the printed version. The digital version works better on phones with large screens, or tablets. We are working on better legibility. Stay tuned.

5. Why doesn’t the bulletin download and display automatically on my phone?

You may be using an Android device, and some models are designed to work that way for higher security. Ask a more IT-savvy person for help. Usually a few more steps are involved. Learn those steps, and you are all set.

6. Is the QR code method the only way to download a digital bulletin?

No, you can get bulletins directly from our church website. Get the bulletin you want in the BULLETINS section under the RESOURCES tab. Or, just click here.
