It is hard work getting church attendance up, and you have probably been doing everything to get the word out from sending invitations to actively engaging with people. And if you finally see the needle move in the right direction, let us be the first to say congratulations! We know that it is no easy feat, and that is why we are here to help make the tithing process easier for you and your congregation.
While we have a variety of tools that make the transition to a larger church community smoother, here we highlight five features that add value and ease to giving and growing.
1. Features for all church sizes
One essential part of rising church attendance is tithing software that seamlessly grows with you. Each church is unique in what they need as the number of members increases, and these features benefit current, new, and future members because the solution is simply enhanced to handle the new capacity rather than growing more complicated.
easyTithe has solutions for churches that range in sizes from 50 to over 50,000 in attendance, and it doesn’t matter where you fall within those numbers. Between the extensive features and flexibility, you will soon discover the process is straightforward and seamless for everyone involved.
2. Customized event forms
Whether you have seen a spike in attendance or you are currently working on how to increase church attendance, you may find yourself planning a variety of events to inspire giving. In fact, studies show that attendance is highest when there are special events planned by the church such as a Christmas play or Thanksgiving potluck dinner.
Being able to customize event forms allows your congregation more giving freedom and it provides you with measurable results. Remember, people tend to give more when they have a sense of purpose beyond the usual reasons, and a well-planned event with customized tithing forms provides that.
3. Accurate reporting systems
Church reporting systems help you keep up with those vital numbers so that you know what direction you are headed in, and can make the appropriate action plan moving forward. The reports are easily customizable to your needs and provide you with detailed information such as monthly church attendance trends, deposit reports, forecasting, recurring giving, and much (much) more.
4. Seamless integration
When your church attendance grows, you may find yourself investing in other financial software programs to make the office run more productively, and your online tithing program needs to integrate with that.
easyTithe is designed to track the different giving outlets that you use from Quickbooks to PowerChurch. If we don’t currently stream with yours, we’ll simply add it for you. This saves you time, money and hassle, and that is our number one priority.
5. Online store capabilities
As more members join your church, you can start thinking outside of the box, and one feature that allows you to do this is an online store. Whether you are selling t-shirts with your church’s name on it or you have a published book of sermons that you want to make available to members, this outstanding tool helps you connect with your congregation on a more personal level versus buying products from big chain retail stores, as well as increasing tithing totals.
With a few tweaks and upgraded features, your growing church will seamlessly make its way into the holidays. And remember, these are only five of the features provided by easyTithe for a growing congregation, but trust that there are much more!
