Churches across the country are trying to encourage younger generations to give, but they often leave out a huge part of the equation: relationships.
Givers are more than donors . . . they’re partners. (more…)
We’ve heard your feedback, and we’re excited to announce what we’ve created in response.
This past quarter we have been busy launching three products to equip the Church to grow in the light of the Bible and also enhance your ministry:
We’ve built these tools with your feedback in mind and are confident you will love what you see. But we also want to hear how we can serve you better. Please follow the group at Faithlife.com and share with us today, then keep reading to learn about other ways we are working to come alongside you in ministry.
Thanks for being with us,

We know churches desire to be good financial stewards. And because online giving is the future of tithing, we’ve introduced Faithlife Giving, an electronic platform for givers to gift funds to churches and nonprofit ministries.
Churches will benefit from simple, streamlined budgeting with electronic records, saving time and effort. Donors can give through their desktop or mobile device with a single or recurring donation and easily add funds to different events—or split funds between events.
And because it’s integrated with Faithlife Groups, givers can get more involved in mission while supporting their church. How can we help your church give more cheerfully? Let us know in the Faithlife Giving community.
Another new product, Faithlife Sites, helps churches easily build and maintain websites. This integrated website platform automatically updates a church’s website based on information such as the church calendar, smart photo galleries, and most recent sermon. It’s built for community and so easy you barely have to touch it.
Join the Faithlife Sites group, and learn from others who are using Faithlife Sites.
More churches and individuals are leveraging Faithlife Groups to communicate activities and build relationships across their church community. A Faithlife Group supplements individual and community experiences with faith-based books, films, and images to help you go deeper in Bible study.
Unique to Faithlife Groups are prayer requests, events, and newsletters. And the Faithlife Groups app allows you to connect with your community on the go! Groups can be public or private, and items can be shared within those groups to foster a community that’s always connected.
We know how hard you work but also how much time administrative activities take. That’s why we are working on creating a new suite of products that will strengthen relationships across your staff and whole congregation to help you fulfill your mission—and give you back time to do what you do best: ministry. Stay tuned for when this product goes public.

Last month, I wrote a blog post on group reading plans featuring Logos’ then–Free Book of the Month, The Christian Doctrine of Prayer. The post highlighted your ability to integrate any of your Logos resources into your Faithlife community through reading plans. While you can, of course, create your own reading plans for your group, we’ve already created a reading group around this month’s Free Book of the Month, John Darby’s Synopsis of the Books of the Bible: Genesis to 2 Chronicles. First, a little background on the book:
Darby’s Synopsis of the Books of the Bible is a five-volume series that explicates the Bible chapter by chapter. In the first of these volumes, Genesis to 2 Chronicles, Darby lays the groundwork for interpreting the Bible, exhibiting key tenets of dispensationalist thought. He covers important themes like creation, sin, and the relationship between good and evil. This volume shows that God’s kingdom in the Old Testament resembles not only the church in the present, but also God’s intentions for the future.
Reading Plans Made Easy
The reading group is called “Synopsis of the Books of the Bible: Genesis to 2 Chronicles,” and it’s open for anyone to join. It’s easy to keep up with the reading plan using the Group Readings widget. Read what other group members have to say about the text using Community Notes*. Dig deeper into your Bible study by sharing interpretations and ideas. And, now, read anywhere with the Faithlife Study Bible app, available free for your iOS or Android device through March 2014. Download your book, join the group, and read in community today!
