Which Announcements to Give?

Had some questions this week about which verbal announcements would get delivered in big church. Apparently there were maybe 7 major announcements - all of them seemed pressing. Here's part of an email I sent to the group after the weekend was decided to help clarify future culture we would establish on the issue:
Just as an aside on this situation we just encountered ... I imagine it happens fairly regularly? Two schools of thought:

THE BIG IDEA is a recent book that encourages churches to focus on one central theme for the weekend with action steps and announcements, worship - everything, really - centered on the message. Might be something to consider to best determine priority of announcements. To put that philosophy into action here: Rwanda wins out as it was the central adult message this past weekend.

SIMPLE CHURCH is another recent title that encourages churches to focus on a simple pathway for discipleship at all times. Everything else gets communicated through handouts, inserts, websites and bulletins. To put that philosophy into action here: the upcoming 40 days campaign wins out as thousands will join the campaign and grow spiritually.
So ... how do you determine which announcements get made in big church? What gets bumped, relegated or tabled? How do you determine which is a priority and which isn't?
