Congregations face financial challenges related to the pandemic. Over 84% of individual donations to a congregation come in through the offering plate. Now that most congregations ceased in-person gatherings, we need to equip congregations with new ways to receive gifts.
Andrew Warner, along with national UCC staff, created a video that offers helpful strategies for your church to consider. No one solution will work for every congregation, so we lift up a range of four ideas that may be useful for your congregation to implement.
Check out these resources to learn how you can put these strategies to work.
Andrew Warner will be holding online office hours on Mondays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm on March 23, 30, April 6, 20 and 26. Join my Zoom Meeting at https://zoom.us/j/954424499 or join via phone at 312 626 6799, meeting ID 954 424 499. This is an opportunity to talk through situations in your own congregation, ask a question, share what you are doing in your congregation, or just say hello.
