Just when you are resting up from all the Easter celebrations, it’s time to move on to what is the biggest outreach event for many churches, Vacation Bible School (VBS). Now is the perfect time to consider using TransactU to help your VBS registrations and payments run even more smoothly.
“Save your church tremendous amounts of time by using TransactU for VBS registration,” encourages Brian Robison, customer service manager for ServiceU.
Did you know that TransactU gives you the ability to attach liability forms, permission slips, maps, photos, logos and much more to your online event registration forms? Keep reading to find out how this feature helps you customize your event registration forms to meet your organization’s needs.
What do I use this feature for?
TransactU’s Attachment Feature is very handy to have when events, such as Vacation Bible Schools, require parents to read a liability form.
Staying organized is a very important part of running a successful Vacation Bible School program. With VBS season almost upon us, we’ve taken a moment to talk with Terri Lincoln at First Redeemer Church (FRC) in Cumming, Georgia about how she uses TransactU and EventU to help keep track of VBS registrations and help the program run more smoothly.
First Redeemer Church runs two back-to-back weeks of VBS for children in mid-July each year.
As summer approaches, Vacation Bible School is just around the corner. VBS is an exciting time for churches. Children of all ages come together to play games, create art projects, sing new songs, and to join in fellowship, all while learning many important lessons from the Bible. Not only do the children of your congregation participate, but many of them bring friends to VBS, exposing them and their families to God’s Word for the first time.

As people conduct more of their banking and business transactions online, many churches and organizations are offering online giving as a convenience to their members.
“These days, people are accustomed to being able to take care of financial business online,” says Christina Knight, treasurer for Central Church of the Nazarene, a church located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that began accepting online donations in February 2008. “Many people pay all their bills online. Some no longer carry a checkbook.
