Uncover the secrets of saving time and stress in your church’s accounting processes.

Church accounting keeps growing more and more complex. You need to manage multiple designated funds, each with their own specific donor restrictions. Annually, you must create clear and detailed donation receipts for your donors’ tax documentation.

All of this complexity often leads to errors and inefficiencies that drag you away from the mission God has given your church.    

That’s why we created our new FREE guide Simplified Accounting: A Church Guide to Financial Clarity and Compliance. This guide will take you step-by-step through how you can simplify some of your most complex church accounting tasks.

When you apply what you learn in this guide, you’ll:

  • Cut time from your accounting processes so you can invest your time in your church’s core ministry functions.
  • Relieve stress from overworked staff and volunteers.
  • Reduce costly errors in your church’s financial management.

As summer nears so does a familiar challenge for churches—declining involvement. Even the most effective churches see declines in attendance, small group involvement, giving, and more. Members head off on vacation. Plus, they often want to spend more time outside and less time inside a church building. 

This isn’t just a frequently shared myth. Research shows attendance during the summer typically drops by 20%. Some churches, including those in college towns, see an even bigger decline.

But the summer slump isn’t just about numbers. It’s about missed opportunities. When engagement drops, relationships don’t get built, marriages aren’t saved, and brokenness doesn’t get healed.  

And your church’s momentum stalls—maybe permanently.

But what if we told you the summer slump was avoidable?

In our new free guide, 7 Habits of Highly Engaged Churches in the Summer, we’ll introduce you to the habits that drive engagement during the warm months of the year and beyond. This guide provides:

  • Summer-specific strategies for growing (not merely steady) involvement.

  • Engagement ideas for churches of all sizes.

  • Involvement strategies that bring together every key area of your church.

Summer is a time of sunshine, vacations, trips, and fun. Unfortunately, for many churches like yours, it is also a time of decreased attendance and engagement as so many are out of town. This means your tithes take a hit as seats are empty, and fewer envelopes are being dropped in the offering plate each week.

So how can you avoid the dreaded summer slump while your members are enjoying their time away?

Download this free guide for 10 tips you can use to encourage your members to continue giving this summer.

When planning a mission trip for your church, your time should be spent making an impact, not frustratingly trying to fill fundraising gaps for your team.

Too many churches waste countless hours trying to orchestrate fundraising opportunities for mission trips. We don’t blame them. Money makes missions happen and it’s vital to truly have an impact on any trip. However, the more time churches spend striving to attain donations, the less time they spend preparing their teams for trips and actually serving.

If you’re ready to find out how to get out of the fundraising weeds and out onto the mission field, here is how social fundraising will allow your church and staff to focus less on mission trip processes and more on living out their God-given mission.
