In fact, they're so common, you may have one of the three most common mistakes in your church budget and not even realize it. (It's ok - not only will I share with you what these three mistakes are, I will also share some ideas on how to avoid or fix them!)

31% of All Online Giving Happens in December http://rustylewis.net/2016/12/13/church-giving-december/ http://rustylewis.net/2016/12/13/church-giving-december/#comments Tue, 13 Dec 2016 16:52:00 +0000 Rusty Lewis http://rustylewis.net/?p=11429 Many of your givers often want to make their year-end gift on the very last Sunday of the year. This year that Sunday falls on December 25 - Christmas Day - while your people may likely be out of town enjoying celebrations with relatives and friends. Are you prepared to help them give their end-of-year gifts in time?

This December Mistake Could Cost Your Church Thousands http://rustylewis.net/2016/12/07/church-december-mistake/ http://rustylewis.net/2016/12/07/church-december-mistake/#comments Thu, 08 Dec 2016 02:27:00 +0000 Rusty Lewis http://rustylewis.net/?p=11412 We know a large percentage of giving happens right at the end of the year. Approximately 31% of all charitable giving happens in December alone. I recommend you prepare and send an 11-month giving statement by mid-December (earlier if possible).
