Giving In A Pandemic

Religious communities are being asked to stop in-person worship services until it is safe to resume them again. Churches are especially difficult to make safe because of the communal nature of worship, which involves passing communion and offering plates among other things. It’s also very difficult to space people six feet apart and still have enough room for everyone. For this reason many houses of worship have chosen to have lessons and sermons online. But what about the offering plate? It turns out that you can still collect offering when you aren’t able to meet in person through apps, and it may be more important now than ever before.

The entire economy is struggling. Unemployment is reaching more than 30% in some places. This means that people are relying on food banks and other means of getting food, which are often supported by religious communities. With little to no money coming in, these services are in danger of being cut.

Learn more about how apps for giving can help keep religious communities working.
