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

Tango, i still haven't heard back on the WiFi, but i think you are correct on the limitations and reasons behind them.

I've seen ATMs in churches before. That's one of the things that helped formulate my skepticism of organized religion.

And before any of you jump on me for that, I am a spiritual person, I believe in God, but with churches it seems to be all about the money and I'm very resentful of that. I don't believe you have to go to church to be right with God or be spiritual.

Okay, rant over, and sorry for the sidetrack!

I don't allow public wifi access at my church - though I do give out the number if certain people ask.

I don't want youth browsing their ipod and the like while in service.

I hear that, but have you checked out some of the Bible apps available for the ipod, ipad, iphone, etal.? I was impressed with the search functions on the ones i've seen. Large print is also handy for some.

I do not attend the church, so i'm getting everything secondhand from her on the Wifi limitations.

I could debate that idea with you.

At my church you can sign up on their website to have the amount you want taken from your account.

They also have an app, Fellowship NWA.

Lots of learning time in there, it's a free app ofcourse.

With a tad of editing, Lon could be speaking for me as well...
