Consistent giving reminders are crucial to on-going giver engagement. Make sure you've updated your website and communication materials with giving instructions and include giving reminders in these materials.
#1 - In Service Slide Deck
Use your customized engagement slide every service during offering time. If you run slides before and after the service, include the giving reminder there too!
#2 - Bulletin
Do you have a bulletin? Update your bulletin template so it permanently includes a reminder for text and online giving.
#3 - Social Media
Post giving reminders and generosity celebrations on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
#4 - Email
Do you send email newsletters to your church? Do you email your congregation about specific ministry campaigns or special offering? Include giving instructions in all relevant email communications.
#5 - Church Website
Your website giving page is where your church’s vision becomes actionable. Don’t overlook this opportunity to engage givers! Plus, if you don’t intentionally showcase giving on your website, you may lose givers in a maze of pages, ultimately frustrating their desire to be generous. Here are a few best practices on updating your church website along with a bunch of examples.
