Providing the convenience of online giving options and encouraging people to grow in their stewardship by giving regularly are key parts of a successful giving strategy. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the option to give online without first creating an account!
As I listen to the live feed of the reading of the names of 9/11 victims this morning, I’m hyper-aware of symbols I’ve already seen today that brought back with crystal clarity the tragic morning that changed the way we viewed our life and homeland:
A large USA flag at half-mast
Facebook posts with poignant images
A plane flying past a tall building
I remember the hope that many found in the image of an “accidental” cross in the midst of the World Trade Center wreckage. Those who look always find reminders of God’s presence hovering near chaos and destruction.
“The pressure from high expectations, combined with the relentless frequency of weekly services, creates for many pastors ‘the tyranny of the coming Sunday.’ Add the countless, diverse demands on a pastor, and too many weeks there simply isn’t time to get it all done.”
In a June 2014 blogpost entitled Church Software for Events: Comparing 5 Options, Capterra looked at five popular Church Management Software (ChMS) providers. They shared each one’s event features and assessed its functionality for church size and number of events.
The blogpost correctly asserted that there are a lot of different features that could be included in Event Management software and that understanding which ones are important to your church’s needs is paramount. We are proud to be considered in this comparison. Capterra’s final word on Fellowship One’s event management functionality is this:
We are continually adding to our network of partners who build on our API, extending Fellowship One functionality by integrating their products with F1 databases. We have two new partners we’d like to introduce you to:
ChurchNumbers is a metrics dashboard application. It works alongside ChMS systems or stands alone to help churches track summary data that is important to them–attendance, giving, etc. Churches can choose exactly what they want to track and what gets represented on their dashboard(s). ChurchNumbers is Cloud-based and runs on any device that can process HTML5.
EasyTithe is one of the first providers of digital giving services for the church. They serve thousands of churches and provide online giving, mobile giving, sms/text giving, and giving kiosks. With EasyTithe, churches with Fellowship One databases can automatically import giving records and people/household records, and know within seconds of a gift being made.
We encourage you to check out these new Integrated Partners and all the others!
