Let’s face it—online giving platforms aren’t all the same. What worked for your church years ago might not be the right solution today. After all, churches grow, strategies change, and technology advances.
MinistryID is your single sign-on (SSO) solution to connect the products your ministry uses every day (like easyTithe!). It gives you access to multiple applications using one credential. Now, you can use the same login and password for easyTithe, your church management software, and other systems where you see the MinistryID logo.
After a distracting summer, many families find their passion for church re-ignited in the fall. They’ll begin regularly attending services again around August and September. Beyond seeing familiar faces return to church, you’ll also notice an uptick of new visitors. With this increase in attendance, there are plenty of opportunities to ignite giving, grow membership, and further the mission of your church.
Churches play a vital role in helping with natural disaster relief. But, it can be complicated. On the one hand, communities look to churches for leadership and ways to get involved. On the other hand, relief agencies have specialized resources and certified staff and volunteers in place to handle these types of situations. With so many people organizing recovery efforts, it becomes a challenge to know the most effective ways to impact your community.
The United States Congress officially enacted the National Day of Prayer in 1952 (although days of prayer have been established and observed by presidents, Congress, and Americans since 1775). It falls on the first Thursday in May, and every year, the president signs a proclamation encouraging Americans to turn to God in prayer. People of many religions and Christians from different denominations come together on this day and pray in houses of worship, in front of courthouses, in their homes, and other locations around the community.
Church growth strategies often focus on the adults in the community. Strategies, like boosting social media efforts, improving the message of sermons, and sending personal invitations, are all directed towards adults. Even opening up your facility for programs like after-school care or Mother’s Day Out are designed to inspire parents to get involved.
