Easter Engagement 2022
A two-session webinar to help you maximize engagement with your
church community this Easter season.
Session 1: Engaging Your Volunteers
Wednesday, March 2 at 1:30-2:30 pm ET
Volunteers are the lifeblood of your church. They allow you to execute and innovate as well as minister to the needs within your community. As we prepare for the Easter Season, we need our volunteer rosters to be full and our teams to be fully engaged. During this session, we'll discuss how to engage those in your congregation and community and help them find their way onto a healthy, thriving team.
Session 2: Engaging Your Givers
Wednesday, March 23 at 1:30-2:30 pm ET
As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, we are reminded of the core reason why we give — a response to the gospel. Join us for a conversation on how to engage your people in the joy of generosity, not just to propel ministry but to truly disciple them as followers of Christ. Whether you have a large population of non-givers, stagnant givers, complacent givers, or simply those givers who need reminding that God is never done growing us, this session will help equip you to communicate better to move their discipleship forward.
The Annual Giving Statement can be more than an itemized report of a giver’s annual contribution. It’s an opportunity to express gratitude to your givers whose commitment to your church helped move your ministry forward and to celebrate your church's impact over the past year.
The Ultimate Guide to Saying "Thank You" in the Church
Establishing a gratitude culture in your church goes hand-in-hand with creating a generosity culture. In fact, we would say that you can’t have a thriving generosity culture without gratitude. The truth is, saying “thank you” makes a difference to your givers, to your staff, and to your volunteers.
We want to help you not only be known for being a generous church, but also for being a grateful church. That’s why we’ve put together this free downloadable resource, Gratitude: The ultimate guide to expressing appreciation in the church context.
