Historically, churches naturally see a decline in attendance in the Summer months. It’s vacation time! A time to pack up the kids and step outside of your everyday responsibilities for a week or two. But, there’s a lot more to it than that, isn’t there? You need to call the post office and have them hold your mail so that you don’t return home to an overflowing mailbox. You need to make sure that you don’t accidentally leave any laundry in the washing machine. The same goes for dirty dishes in the dishwasher. Trust me – you don’t want to come home to either after more than just a couple of days in the Summer. What are you going to do with the dog (and/or cats)? You’ve got to figure that out too!
So, you’ve got everything ready, the kids are in the car, the dog is at your mother-in-law’s, you’re ready to head out on vacation! Wait! Did you remember to send in your tithe for this month? No? No big deal – I’ll just double up next month! Except that you might forget? Or, you might use it as an excuse to skip a month? But, you don’t want to skip a month! You want to be obedient to God’s word and give your 10%!
Lucky for you, your church uses Txt2Give. Just pull out your phone (as long as you’re not the one driving!), send a few text messages and BOOM! Your tithe is paid for the month! Now you’re free to enjoy your vacation because you remembered EVERYTHING! Except to adjust your thermostat – it’s still set to 72 degrees – which I’m sure your couch will appreciate.
What was that? Your church doesn’t use Txt2Give? Why not? It hardly costs them anything and it makes giving super easy, even if you’re sitting at the airport waiting for your plane to depart. Nevermind the fact that when you are at church in-person, you hardly ever have cash and you haven’t seen your checkbook in months. But, you’ve always got your trusty phone! You should be able to use it to pay your tithes and offerings, right? Right!
If your church doesn’t use Txt2Give, they totally should. Txt2Give allows donors to set-up automatically recurring donations, includes an online giving page, and allows you to give at any time from anywhere there is a mobile signal. And it’s safe! We are PCI Compliant and utilize current encryption technology to ensure that your personal information is stored securely. The church will be able to keep track of your donation history so that they can issue you your annual giving statement each year right from the Txt2Give dashboard. All of these great features and it’s only $19/month + 1% and it includes a 30 day free trial period!
