30 Jul Why Churches Should Use Offering Buckets and Not Offering Plates
It’s no secret that contemporary church services are growing at a much faster rate than traditional church services. This doesn’t mean that there is not a place for traditional worship; however, it does mean that churches should be focusing a lot more resources to their contemporary services. One of those trends in contemporary service is to use offering buckets rather than offering plates. Offering plates are great for traditional worship services but they don’t blend with the contemporary feel. Plus, offering buckets are larger and therefore people feel more obligated to let loose of more money. Many smaller churches think that offering buckets are just used by mega-churches; but this is not true. Many smaller church services have made the transition and are using offering buckets. The idea is to use a lot of buckets to speed up the collection process and have more worship time. In addition, you are branding your church by having your church logo on the sides of the buckets. Even though churches are non-profit, marketing and branding is just as important to promote growth and reach as many people as possible. And the more people a church can reach, the better it’s ministry efforts will be.
