New St. James M. B. Church is based in Wynne, Arkansas. It is the second oldest church in Cross County and is a fixture in Eastern Arkansas.
The church has various ministries, including a missionary society, music ministry, youth ministry, and more. They are known as “The Church On a Mission”, which is to win souls for Christ.
The coronavirus pandemic had stalled their normal worship services. Their pastor recently decided to hold services, including Sunday worship, prayer meetings, and Bible Study, via conference call.
The church initially needed a solution to continue collecting tithes and offerings from their congregation, which is where Unity Tenth came in.
We used Gravity Forms to develop an form so that their members could go online and easily make a payment. The form can also allow their members to send a certain amount of their gift to a different department.
The form also can allow members to automatically arrange for their offiering to be given for a certain period of time. The payment processor handling the form is Unity Tenth’s perferred payment processor Stripe, so it goes directly into their account.
The website’s function expanded from there, with the site also providing a place for the church to send out announcements. It also allows members to listen to past sermons and autoposts those sermons on to their Facebook page.
