from Religion News Service via BeliefNet
The number of churches that reported a drop in giving due to the sour economy rose nearly 10 percent last year, according to new survey. In 2009, 38 percent of churches reported a decline in giving, versus 29 percent in 2008. Megachurches -- those with 2,000 members are more -- were hit hardest, with 47 percent reporting a decrease in giving last year, up from 23 percent in 2008.
