The mission of the church doesn’t change.
But how you fulfill God’s mission does.
In short, you need to be flexible in how you …
… reach your community …
… connect with first-time guests …
… handle donations …
… engage your church …
… and a whole lot more.
Said another way, how your church made disciples yesterday will not necessarily work today or in a different community because people, cultures, and behavior are not static—they change.
You need to adapt to the way people change.
Why bring this up?

Tithe.ly Sites upgrades
Love the addition of these new features and integrations.
When it comes to Plan Your Visit, the team has been biting at the bit to make this happen for months.
With Plan Your Visit, you can turn website browsers into in-person church visitors. This feature makes it easy for people to prepare for their visit, and for you to get ready for their arrival.
Did you catch the way you can now auto-display testimonies on your church’s website? Show website browsers how God is at work in your church by sharing how he’s changed lives, and then make it easy for people to plan their visit for an upcoming worship service.
New transaction and bank deposit reports
Reporting is essential to managing your church’s finances.
We wanted to make your life easier and your financial reporting clearer, so our team took your feedback and made beautiful updates that will breathe new life into your church’s financial reports.
For starters, we added a “Filter” option. Unlike our previous reporting, you can now “Filter" your reports by group, date, or giver.
We also added “Columns” to the mix, which makes it easy to rearranging your reporting to showcase the date the way you like to see it.
Talking about preferences, we added a new feature to our reporting called “Views.” This latest update enables you to toggle between different version of your church financial data.
Alright, but that’s not all.
[Did you hear cheesy salesman voice come out there?]
The team also made it easy to download .CSV files.
Okay, one more update for our giving platform.
For “Bank Deposits,” you can see a basic overview and summary. From the “Overview” in your dashboard, you can see when donated funds will be available, how many donations were made, and the total amount deposited. Next, in your “Summary,” we break down the overview so you can see what funds you created received donations.
When are these updates available?
You can add Tithe.ly Messaging and sign up for Tithe.ly Pay today.
As for every new feature and update, those are live now. No need to pay more or do anything else. They're yours. 🙂
More to come
We’ll roll out a brand new slate of updates and more on November 5, 2020.
