Every Proclaim presentation automatically generates a digital Faithlife bulletin. The bulletin lets your members take live surveys, download contact or calendar information, interact with Bible Trivia, and much more. When you go On Air, your bulletin publishes automatically to your church group on Faithlife.com. Continue reading to learn how to find and customize your bulletins.
