Third Quarter Giving Letters (Free Downloads)

As promised, here’s our Third Quarter Giving letter.  Right click below to download:

Main 2-Page Economic Hope Letter from me

Small Church Stat Insert from Kerrick

(Note: These may not be the final versions we actually mailed – they were proofed and designed on letterhead before the final two-color printing.  Thank God for proof readers!)

We sent the two letters above plus an auto-debit form and a giving envelope in a 6 x 9 Envelope with these words printed in blue on the front of the envelope:

An Important Economic Message from Pastor Nelson Searcy
plus your third quarter statement of giving

They started hitting over the weekend and the early reponse has been very positive.

Even though its late October, I don’t think its too late for you to do a 3rd Quarter Giving letter. People are interested in the economy and your letter (like mine above) can provide hope.  Also, you can use a letter that hits in November  to promote your Christmas Offering – see my free report here – and you can mail it first class and use it to clean up your database (the post office will send you the new addresses if you pay first class postage).  Lyle Schaller has also argued for November giving letters.

Hope this helps!
