How can online givers participate during the offering time at my church?
Some church leaders tell us that online giving takes away from the worshipful act of placing an offering in the plate or basket. We have a solution. The “I give online” cards allow for online givers to participate in the offering. These cards can be placed in the basket, in lieu of checks or cash, as a symbol of the gift they have already given, or plan to give.
Recommended use for "I give online" cards:
- Place cards in an easily accessible place: in the pews, on chairs, or in every individual bulletin you hand out.
- During the offering time, have the speaker mention that if you are giving online or plan to give online, to drop a card in the offering plate/basket/box. Don't forget to thank those who have already given online.
