Small and Mighty Church

$18
per month
We are so grateful for the small churches in our lives. But we also know how hard it can be to put together a new, creative service each and every Sunday. Especially during a pandemic. Especially when it's virtual. The Many is creating new virtual worship resources every week, and we'd love to share them with you and your congregation.

This tier is for churches and other organizations with an average attendance of 50 or fewer people.

What does my church get as a Patron?
Because we want this community to have room for all of us, all churches get the same stuff.

- 1 Liturgical Resource per month (check out what we've got here: bit.do/patreonforchurchesliturgy)
- 1 Lyric Video or piece of Sheet Music (check out what we've got here: bit.do/patreonforchurchesmusic)
- 10% off all merch (check that out here: shop.themanyarehere.com)
- Exclusive access to an occasional video chat with the members of the band.
- Opportunities to provide input/suggestions/ask questions.
- Sometimes, even the chance to create music and worship experiences with us.

About The Many

We are The Many, an intentionally diverse collective making music and worship experiences to help all of us know God loves us and that we belong...so we can all find the courage to love God, ourselves, and everyone in this whole, aching world.

If you believe this is important work and you'd like to be part of making it happen, this Patreon page is for you.



What will you get as a Patron?

- Exclusive access to a monthly video chat with the members of the band.
- Sneak previews of work in progress.
- First shot at ordering our new albums and litanies and merch -- before the rest of the world.
- Opportunities to provide input/suggestions/ask questions.
- Sometimes, even the chance to create music and worship experiences with us.

Because we want this community to truly have room for all of us, everyone here gets the same stuff, no matter how much or how little you choose to contribute…so even if you can only put in $3 a month, no problem, because we trust there will be others who are able to contribute more.

Oh, and if you’re an introvert or super busy or both (!) and all you want to do is support us financially and have no interest in chats or other stuff, that’s cool, too.
 


Why Patreon? Why not just get a regular record label?
Quite honestly, most regular labels don’t support the kind of music we’re creating– LGBTQ+ inclusive, justice-focused, not afraid of lament or of questioning God or of expressing both faith and doubt.

However, we believe people actually want this kind of music, need it, and want to support it. In fact, lots of you have been supporting us already by buying our CDs and downloads, sheet music and liturgies, and merch, and by showing up for the worship gatherings and workshops we’ve led.




This Patreon just provides a simple way for folks to do that. On a more consistent basis. It’s a way to help us keep our bills paid and food on the table, so we can keep creating the music and liturgies and worship experiences we believe we all need more of in the world.

And yes, we have big plans for the weeks and months ahead.

We’re writing new songs all the time as well as creating more of our interactive liturgical experiences. Because of COVID-19, we've had a lot of our in-person gigs cancelled or postponed, but we've continued to offer virtual music and worship experiences online, without charging folks for them. Your support can make a huge difference in allowing us to continue doing that as well.

And of course, when the world recovers from this pandemic, we plan to be out touring again. We would also love to offer podcasts as well as online workshops on worship, justice and inclusion. And your support can help make all of that…and maybe more…happen.



We hope you'll join us and do as much as you can. It's very easy to pledge and if you need to change the amount or cancel at any time, that's easy to do too. If you're a worship leader or pastor who works with a church that appreciates what we do, you could maybe even pledge as part of your music/worship budget.

With love and gratitude for all of you,

Goals
74 of 100 patrons
We'll start a podcast! We've always wanted to do this, but haven't had the resources. With your help we can finally make it happen. We'd love suggestions for what you'd like to hear on a "Many" podcast as well.
