Days until Birthday¶
This Condition on the Personal category tab in Search Builder allows you to find people who have birthdays coming up. You enter a number of days and it will find everyone with a birthday within that many days. It will always be less than 365 days.
Life Group Members
If you are a staff member that is over a specific Division of Life Groups, you could use this Condition along with the Condition Is Member Of to find those members of organizations you lead. Set the number of days to LessEqual 7 for the Days Until Birthday Condition, and then for the other Condition select the Program and Division for which you want the members, and then save the search. You can run this each week and send an email or make a phone call to those with birthdays that week.
This is a great way to stay connected to people and minister to them. If you send an email, be sure to ask how you can pray for them this year. You might get a reply back which will give you some insight into that person’s life and help him feel more connected to your church.
TouchPoint also has a couple of ways to display upcoming birthdays on your home page.
