Default Does your church accept debit tithes or have an ATM available? Why not?

Ever gone to service and realized as the plate was being passed that you forgot your tithe/offering envelope or check at home? Every wished there was a way to just swipe your debit card on the offering plate? Ever had a time when it would've been darned handy to have an ATM available at your house of worship? Ever wanted to put a lil something extra in the offering plate after a particularly moving sermon?


I think i want to market lobby ATM's and debit card offering acceptance machines to church's.

I also want to know why my mother can't get on the wifi at her church to access her iPad's bible program.

Best of luck with that, Gello. I think most churches will go for it, tho it will cause them MAJOR gastroenteritis to part with 3% to the CC company. If you make 2 million I'll take you out to kill some of your hated bears for a small contribution to my upcoming charity.

NO but when I get my church built I will have a gift shop as you enter and one you exit through. We will except MC, Visa, and cash. Tithing is volintary but so will be opening the exit door if you don't buy something.

So as not to offend anyone I won't mention which, but I'm sure there's one denomination that has tried to think this out six ways to Sunday. (pun intended)

Do they run a proxy server or filter of some kind? They may have very tight restrictions on the wifi at the church (wouldn't want them kiddos surfing Adult entertainment sites while in sunday school now would we).

Most churches now are set up to take payments online. It's actually cheaper for them to recieve money this way then thru checks so I typically tithe on the website.
