The most irrelevant time of most church services is during the offering time when the plate is passed.
And it’s not because unchurched people don’t know what’s happening. It has nothing to do with HOW you ask people to participate. Those things are important, but the reason your offering is irrelevant is most people don’t have cash or checks.
You’re asking them to participate, but it’s literally impossible for them to do so. We’re living in a cashless society, and it’s about time the church realized this.
The old rule of fundraising involved passing a plate and asking people to make on-the-spot donations. This way of fundraising is broken, because the offering time is irrelevant to most people. The new rule goes digital.
Your church might offer online giving, but that’s not enough. You’ve got to emphasize it. In fact, it’s time that you make digital the default!
I know you’ve got questions. You’re wondering how to deal with people who worship Jesus by placing a physical check in a physical offering plate. You’re wondering if a kiosk in the lobby is going to alienate people. You’ve got a finance team worried about fees and charges.
