Sharing During a Service

Share Giving Options In The Service

While you can encourage online giving options during a service, Text to Give is the most successful digital giving tool as most people are carrying a smart phone.

Here are four easy ways to invite your congregation to use Text to Give

  1. Include a slide in your church presentation with your toll free number and an invite to text GIVE.
  2. Include a brief message in the Sunday bulletin: “We now offer a simple, mobile-friendly way for you to give tithes and offerings during the service. Text GIVE to (XXX) XXX-XXXX and you will receive an automated text back to securely set up your gift.”
  3. Equip your door greeters to answer questions about Text to Give to your congregation.
    – T-shirts inviting people to ask questions
    – Flyers with info about how it will help your congregation and your church
    – Tablet with a short video about how it works or slides with more details
  4. Include a brief in your weekly or monthly email announcements.

These will show people how to participate and support your ministry. Check out this launch kit for sample slides and templates.
