Does your church experience a drop-off in tithes and offerings during the summer months when many members go on vacation? What about in the winter when some of your members head south to escape the cold?

Have you ever had to cancel Sunday services because of a blizzard, a hurricane, a flood or some other circumstance beyond your control? What happens to your weekly offerings then?

If seasonal dips in giving concern you – or if you're simply searching for a way to increase offerings throughout the year – online giving might be the solution you seek.

Online giving has been linked to dramatic increases in overall offerings at many churches. Among the reasons for this is that it makes it easy for a member to set up recurring payments that happen automatically whether she's in church on Sunday (but maybe forgot her checkbook) or just too sick to get out of bed.

Our new infographic highlights the many advantages of online giving for your church. If you like it, please share it with your friends using the social toolbar at the top of this post. You can also re-post the infographic on your website or blog using the embed code below the infographic.
