Can you believe it’s been a year and a half since we started this blog, and we have yet to write about how it all began? The question why was Parish Giving created is much more than a one word answer – it’s a story that should be shared with our followers and users. This is how it all started.
Thanksgiving is perhaps one of the busiest travel holidays of the year. College students are coming home for the first time since the beginning of the semester, friends and family are flying in from out of town and roads are busier due to the long holiday weekend. Are you one of the millions travelling this Thanksgiving? If you are, Parish Giving is here to help!
You walk into the kitchen. Dirty dishes are piled high in the sink. Someone spilled milk on the floor and didn’t clean it up. The trash is over flowing. The recyclables have not been taken out. And no one has even thought about what’s for dinner tonight. This is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s that time of year where life is throwing a curveball at you from every direction. We want to help throw one less in your direction.
Church is about much more than just religion; it’s about building a community. What better way to build a community than to offer events at your parish. It brings people together that share a common bond, values and other interests. Everything from a Parish Picnic to Baseball and everything in between are great activities and fund raisers for the church. It can all be simplified with an online giving form too!
When you see the name Parish Giving, you automatically think all we are about is your weekly offering toward your parish. Well here is a surprise – it is so much more than that! Parish Giving is about giving back to your community and to your parish. Your weekly church offering is just skimming the surface of what we are about!
