One of the residual objections to using online giving at your church plant will be from people who like to make the offering an active, participatory part of the worship service. “If they just deduct it from my checking account, it doesn’t feel like giving.”
Give Them Something to Give
In light of the many benefits in setting up recurring electronic tithes & offerings, why not attach a ‘coupon’ or offering voucher via PDF file to electronic receipts? This offers worshipers something tangible to put in the offering during the service and connects the electronic deduction to the act of worship.
Being in electronic form, the offering voucher costs you nothing to deliver, and the givers can decide for themselves whether or not to print it.
