The team at Tithe.ly recently made some legit updates to our services.
Not because we want to have the sleekest tool on the block (even though that doesn’t hurt).
We’ve had our ears to the ground listening to your feedback, and we desire to make your life easier when using our tools to increase giving and grow your church or ministry.
So, what have we been working on?
Oh, just a few things. 😉
Without further ado, here are the highlights of what’s been going on behind the scenes:
#1. Create your own app page
Need the flexibility to create a new page in your church app?
Interested in adding new features without having to wait?
Consider it done and done.
In your app, you now have the flexibility to create ANY page you want within your app. It’s like having a blank canvas you can use to freely express yourself creatively.
With this update, you can…
- Add any written content.
- Embed videos.
- Add images.
- Include maps.
- Add linkable buttons.
- Do whatever suits your fancy.
To create your app page, log in to your account, and click on the “App Pages” button in the menu on the left:
From here, you’ll be directed to the new App Page page builder where you can spread your wings and fly.
To provide you with the lowdown on how this works, our team put together this tutorial: App Pages Tutorial.
Since I know you’re excited to see the goods, here’s a video tutorial that demonstrates the power of this new feature:
#2. Tithe.ly Events Integration
Event registration has been one of the most requested tools for churches using Tithe.ly, which makes sense.
Not only are we pumped about being able to offer you this service. But we’re also stoked about how easy it is to integrate with your church app.
The team made it simple for you to add new events, integrate it with your church app, and make it super easy for your church to find your events and see if they require registration.
Here’s a screenshot of what I’m talking about:
Pretty cool, eh?

#3. Schedule push notifications
With technology, there are times when you need control, and there are times when you just need to automate something. At least that’s what we thought (and heard) about push notifications.
Now, with your Tithe.ly church app, you can schedule push notifications in advance or set up a recurring message.
Check this out.
In your church app dashboard, on the lefthand side, select “Push Messages."
After you select “Push Messages,” you’ll see two drop-down options:
Now, select “Scheduled,” from the drop-down menu, and you’ll see these options:
I’ll spare you the rest of the details. I just wanted to show you the ropes for now.
If you need additional help, check out this in-depth article in our knowledge base: Sending Push Notifications.
So, what’s the best part of scheduling or setting up recurring notifications?
You maintain control of your church app, but you can now enjoy the benefit of automation.
#4. ICYMI: Sermon Notes
Did you know you can create Interactive Sermon Notes in your church app?
If you don’t know, now you know. 😃
Take a look at this beauty:
To better engage your congregation, Interactive Sermon Notes will help you…
- Increase the attention span of your church.
- Lead your church to better engage with your sermon.
- Improve your church’s retention.
- Help your church build community by sharing their notes.
Know what’s sweet about Interactive Sermon Notes?
Your church can also use emojis to capture their thoughts in their notes.
That’s all… for now
Okay, so there you have it.
