As we round the one-year anniversary of navigating the pandemic, the church across America is still unsure of what services will look like for the remainder of this year. Some churches have fully opened, while others are either partially in-person or still only meeting virtually. 

So, where do we go from here? From now through August, our team predicts a season of irregular operations, growing toward more dependable scheduling and meeting in the fall. 

This edition of GenerosityNOW is centered around three focuses your church needs to adopt as you plan the remainder of 2021: 

  • Refill The Vision Tank – Find out why this is important for this season.
  • Make a Plan for a Strong Fall Launch—Now! – While much can’t be counted on today, there are some things we can make decisions about that will set us up for success in the fall.
  • Solidify Your Easter Plan – Check and double check your plans for Easter service, paying special attention to the giving moment. 

Fall 2021 will usher in a momentum shift to help move your ministry forward. What your team prepares for—starting today—will dictate the success of your fall launch. Plan well, invest well, and stay flexible.


Reports are pointing to the Fall as the “next normal” - there is renewed hope for a return to in-person worship!  While it may feel a ways down the road, we cannot stress enough how planning and preparing for Fall Launch is where church leaders should be focusing their time and energy. If your ideal Fall Launch includes: welcoming your church back, expanding your ministry, and continuing to move your vision forward, then the time to begin laying down the foundation for a strong launch is now. In this 20-minute video, Jim Sheppard and Dave Travis share insights that will get you through spring 2021 with a plan for the fall.

Vision Weekend Starter Kit

Hardly anything gets the attention of givers more than a clear, compelling vision of what you believe God is calling your church to be and do in the year ahead. Even if you believe you did this as recently as last year, you will need to do it again.  Vision leaks - the tank has to be refilled from time to time, especially after a year like 2020. 

A Vision Weekend is a great way to reengage and remind your congregation of the vision and mission God has given to your church. If you need help getting started, we've created a free Vision Weekend Starter Kit.
