5 Ways to Engage Givers in Your Church Every Day of the Week
Learn five ways you can engage givers in your church throughout the week.
April 30, 2018
Giving is not limited to your offering and it’s not confined to Sundays.
The people in your church prefer to give in a variety of ways, and, as we’ll see below, most giving actually takes place during the week—not just on Sundays.
Consistent giving reminders is crucial to ongoing giver engagement.
To engage the givers in your church, you need to have a plan in place to connect with them in a variety of ways during the week.
In this post, I’m going to share with you five ways you can engage givers in your church, including:
Here we go!
#1. Use a church offering graphic
Does your church use a projector during your worship service? If so, you can easily encourage the members of your church to give by sharing a graphic displaying the different ways people can give.
Here’s a customizable graphic we designed for churches who use Tithe.ly:
You can use a graphic like this during your offering or you can include it as a slide before and after your worship service.
Sharing this type of graphic will remind the members of your church the different ways they can give.

#2. Update your bulletin
If I were a gambling man, I’d wager your church uses a bulletin for your worship service. Most churches do, and for good reason, too.
A bulletin is a one-stop shop to sharing info about your church, what to expect during your worship service, or if there are any upcoming events.
In your bulletin, considering including information on the ways people can give or a graphic like the one above in your bulletin. When you do this, assume everyone reading your bulletin doesn’t know the different ways they can give or even how to give. Making this assumption will ensure you provide clear instructions for any newbies.
#3. Share reminders on social Media
Did you know that Sunday isn’t the only day of the week people give?
In a study conducted by Tithe.ly, we discovered that a large percentage of giving takes place on Sundays (33%). But—to our surprise—we found out that 67% of giving happens throughout the week for churches who offer online giving and mobile giving.
Here’s the deal: You need to engage the members of your church during the week about giving. Thankfully, you don’t have to call everyone in your church or send them a postcard. You can easily connect with them on social media.
Social media is your community’s new water cooler where people share their opinions or latest happenings. It’s where they go to connect with their family, friends, and their church.
During the week, consider posting giving reminders and celebrate the generosity of your church on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Here are examples from different local churches who use Tithe.ly.
