2020 has been a challenging year for the local church. Congregations have boldly responded in the midst of pandemic restrictions. In the name of Jesus Christ, you have found new ways to care for the vulnerable and the needy in your communities. You have acted with kindness and sought justice. You have adapted to online worship and found new ways of communicating with and supporting your faith community.In the final month of this challenging year, your congregation has the opportunity to encourage and celebrate faithful generosity. Consider one or two of these actions in the coming weeks:
- Add another way for people to give to your ministry by Advent, i.e. text-to-give, online giving through electronic fund transfer or a giving app. Introduce new giving options in all church communications and worship.
