Five Easy Ways to Encourage Generosity
 
Whether you are a church or nonprofit, it's important for you to communicate regularly with your church members and donors for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, to ensure your continued ability to support your mission, it is critical that generosity is a key piece of these communications. But this takes a lot of resources, planning, and tools you might not have, right? Wrong!
 
While ideally, a more detailed process is preferable, that's not always a possibility for many of us. Whether you have a fully defined generosity vision statement and communications strategy, or if you are just getting started, this blog post was created to provide five easy ways you can encourage generosity TODAY. It's time to keep it simple and get started!
 

 

Five Tips for Choosing Curriculum

(From the PCUSA Store)

  1. Consider the age of the group and what needs they have. Do you need something for children? Youth? Adults? Make sure the curriculum you choose is going to meet those needs and is age appropriate. 
     
  2. Look at the theology of the curriculum. Buying from PC(USA) Store means that you can trust your curriculum.
     
  3. Get a sample session of the curriculum. PC(USA) Store offers samples for free! You can find these in the description of each product. Reading through a sample session will give you an idea of lesson plan flow, the "personality" of the curriculum, and the ability of the curriculum to fit the needs of the people you are serving.
     
  4. Review your options with others. Once you've made your top selections, take time to review these with others, such as your Christian Education committee or team or even your session.
     
  5. Ask us if you need help. We are here to provide support. If you have questions about choosing a curriculum, contact us by emailing our curriculum specialist, who can help you with your specific needs.

 

Mileage Reimbursement Change
 
New Harmony Presbytery has been reimbursing our volunteers serving on committees at the IRS employee/
business rate rather than the IRS non-employee/volunteer rate. The difference between the two rates represents taxable income to the volunteer. However, NHP has not been keeping track of this difference with the IRS. Additionally, as said, this is not the approved IRS rate for volunteers. 
Personnel and Finance Committee has made a prudent and necessary change, in that starting the beginning of this year, NHP will now be reimbursing volunteers serving on a committee at the non-employee/volunteer rate.
 
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or Julie.
