About 1/3 of most parachurch ministry income comes in during the month of December. Often times we as church leaders miss this opportunity. Here’s an email I have going out to our church on Monday, December 29 – feel free to adapt it for your situation:
Subject line: A courtesy reminder . . . (The Journey Church)
This is a courtesy reminder that your year-end financial gifts to The Journey Church are to be given online or postmarked in the mail by Dec 31, 2008 in order to qualify for 2008 tax benefits
In fact, it is your year-end gifts that allow us to finish 2008 strong and to be fully prepared for ministry opportunities in 2009.
And, of course, right now is a great time to make a gift to The ONE IN A MLLION Special Offering. Maybe God is stretching you to give a sacrificial gift to this offering.
As you prayerfully consider a year-end gift, here are three convenient giving options for you:
1. To give online to either the regular offering or the special offering simply visit:
Here you can give via debit or credit card. It’s completely secure and very easy.
2. If you wish to mail a gift to our office our address is:
The Journey Church
321 W 44th St, Suite 203A
New York, NY 10036
3. You may also use your bank’s online website to send a check to The Journey (via the Bill Pay option). Just direct your bank to send your check to the address above – you don’t even need a stamp!
Thank you for your faithful giving in 2008.
Happy New Year!!
P.S. Remember, regular Sunday services will resume this Sunday, January 4 in all locations, although there is no evening service in Manhattan. I’ll be teaching live in Manhattan; Pastor Elliott will be teaching live in Brooklyn and Pastor Jim will be teaching live in Jersey City. It’s going to be a great Sunday! See you then.
