Giving ‘Because of God’s Great Mercy’

By Chick Lane, August 13, 2015

Almost there! Click above to get to “Because of God’s Great Mercy.”

As I work with congregations in their stewardship ministry, I’m always surprised how few annually ask members and friends of the congregation to increase their giving.  Most people won’t increase giving if you don’t ask them to.  “Because of God’s Great Mercy” is a complete program that provides everything a congregation needs to make a direct, respectful request, along with a simple way for people to calculate an increase of 1/2 of 1% of household income.”
