Why Give Digitally?
People have been saying this for years, but we’re living in a digital age. Information travels around the world quickly because it travels around the world digitally. Videos are captured digitally and immediately uploaded to YouTube. Paying bills online is now a common occurrence, increasing tenfold in the last decade. It’s time for our church to embrace digital giving. Here are some reasons why:
*We are living in a cashless society. It seems like the only people using checks these days are the people in front of me in the express checkout line at the grocery store. Because of the proliferation of credit and debit cards, a large percentage of people who attend church services don’t have cash or checks with them.
*Recurring online gifts create consistency.
*You can give 24/7, not just during church services. More opportunities to contribute to the mission and vision of our church. Give when your are sick or out of town.
*We depend on weekly contributions to keep the church running.
*Digital giving helps you become disciplined givers. In 1 Corinthians 8-9, Paul challenged the Corinthian believers to give intentionally, deliberately, and at a pre-determined time. Digital giving helps you be intentional with your generosity.
