Church Giving During COVID: Reasons for Optimism
God’s people are still giving, churches are learning from this pandemic, and God is still faithful.
October 26, 2020
There are a number of churches who have been blessed with resources, and talented artists and creatives. They create amazing and beautiful sermon series, websites, print collateral, and their social media accounts look like they could be run by Fortune 500 companies.
But the majority of small to medium sized churches don’t have the resources, staff, or even volunteers to consistently produce high quality creative assets. Many church plants struggle to create everything they need to get the word out about their new church.
That’s the beauty of being one body. And thanks to the generosity of a few churches and organizations who share their resources, any church can step up the quality of their sermon series, website, social media, print materials, worship slides, and more.
All in the name of reaching more people with the Gospel.
Here’s a list of some of our favorites…
You probably already know about this one, but Life.Church offers hundreds of free resources for churches from sermon series graphics, videos, printable templates, worship slides, and more.
Their collection includes resources from Life.Church as well as other churches all over the country.
12Stone is another church that offers free resources for other churches.
From sermon messages, graphics, artwork, and more, you could plan an entire high-quality sermon series for free.
That can be an incredible blessing to smaller churches with limited resources.
Seeds offers artwork, video, music, drama skits, motion graphics, students resources, and more.
There are hundreds of collections to choose from, so you’re bound to find something you can use for your next sermon series.
They also offer the Seeds Conference where they teach you how to do what they do.
NewSpring offers full series resources, group studies, training and equiping resources for volunteers, music chord charts, videos, and so much more.
Don’t spend your own resources recreating what has already been done for you.
In addition to church networks like the one’s above, there are a number of websites that were built with pastors and church leaders in mind. They offer free creative assets, graphics, and other resources to help the church.
There’s a ton of free resources out there, you just need to know where to find them. Here’s some of the best ones we could find, all of which are free…
