Q: What do our parishioners think about when putting their offering in their envelopes on Sunday?
If you have nothing on the back of your envelopes, you are missing an opportunity to deliver an engaging message to your parishioners each and every week as they think about their offering.
Remind parishioners of the connection between their offering and the good work your parish does, and provide an uplifting message about the church, congregation, and community at the most crucial time - as they make a decision of how much to give in support of those missions.
Q: How can Church Budget help inform our parishioners, increase giving, and help our parishioners feel more connected to our parish and our missions?
Our all-in-one Good Works Series package includes several free items to help your envelopes do more:
- A Record of Giving card allows parishioners to track and evaluate their support for the parish throughout the year.
- On the reverse is an explanation of the envelope system, why it is used, and how the parish uses it for record-keeping and finiancial forecasting.
- An Initial Offering envelope with the suggested gift amount of your choosing, encourages the parishioners to defray or offset the cost of the envelope set.
- 51 weekly envelopes provide uplifting, thought-provoking messages designed to encourage your parishioners to evaluate their life and the importance of the church, community, and Christ in their life, just as they're deciding how much of a commitment to make to these missions.
- Four quarterly catch-up envelopes, enabling parishioners to make up for missed offerings. A gentle reminder that the expenses of the parish continue regardless of attendance. Remind your parishioners to be good stewards and keep up with their commitment to God's work through the parish.
- The first weekly envelope is created with your mission statement! Personalize one of the beautiful full-color designs with a mission statement targeted just for your parishioners. Explain your parish's particular need, mission, or goals. Engage your parishioners even more with a message meant just for them!
We guarantee it. Our exclusive series are designed to utilize the unused 50% of your envelope to not just increase giving, but also to make your parishioners feel more like a community, like they belong to something much greater than themselves, and to evaluate how much being a part of the Christian community means to them. Grow the sense of community and stewardship as parishioners feel more connected with the harvest every time they sow the seeds with their weekly offering.
You are not required to use our stock design envelopes. You may also design your own envelope to better suit the needs of your church. These sets may or may not be numbered.
The Good Works series is a Dollar size envelope: (6 1/4" x 3 1/8")
