For the first time in three years, we have an authentic summer season. Families are traveling, concerts are in full swing, and people are making plans to visit friends and family they haven’t seen in a while. This also means that church attendance may be lower than normal during the prime summer months of July and August. Here we have come up with a few ideas on how to keep your parishioners engaged during the summer months, and how to make sure weekly offerings are coming in regularly. Keep reading to find out how!
As you can remember, we left off our last blog discussing our online forms. They were our ticket item to create more of a buzz when it came to communicating with our parishes. No longer were we just a weekly offering site; we are now something more meaningful.
As you know, 2020 was a year unlike any other in our lifetime. One of the major things we learned was how to communicate while in our home offices. We enjoyed our conference calls and seeing everyone’s faces, but at the same time, we feel as though we could have done better. In 2021 our goal is better communication and that starts with you! We are asking for suggestions from our loyal users about how we can communicate better. As you have read in our latest blast, communication is key in any relationship, and your relationship is important to us!
Here are some of the ideas we have come up with so far:
