Beyond the collection plate: These Maryland churches are preaching the value of electronic giving
from The Baltimore Sun
For most of his life, Frank Robert was like many churchgoers who came of age in the United States in the 20th century: It was routine to drop a check or a few bills in the collection plate every Sunday. But it was always nerve-racking to scrounge up cash or find the checkbook on his way out the door to the pews. So the 59-year-old financial educator made a decision more and more American churchgoers and church officials have been making over the past decade and a half: He switched to electronic giving.
