Fairfield Glade Community Church celebrates GENEROSITY SUNDAY!
On Sunday Sept 28, Fairfield Glade Community Church celebrated “Generosity Sunday” which marked the high point of their fall appeal for 2015 financial commitments. The committee launched their fall appeal using new language and new practices from the past. One practice was collecting “Generosity Commitment Cards” rather than “pledges”. They are very encouraged that the level of participation and the overall commitments have been significantly higher than the previous year. Debbie Spearman joined them as Guest Steward for their Sunday service. The Rev. Dr. Marvin Morgan is their Interim Minister.
Does your church offer online giving? Should you? According to recent surveys by Vanco Services, churches that invite online giving have higher giving rates than those who don’t.
