Have you moved to a new neighborhood? Maybe it’s time for your annual family reunion? What about your grandmother who fell sick last week? Maybe you finally saved up for the cruise you have been planning with your family for months now? But the church you attend is holding an important event this weekend? This is the one you have been telling your friends and family about. How can you miss such an important obligation? What will the church members think? Maybe they would be understanding of the circumstances. But how will you join in on the discussions afterward? Will there be a meeting about the next community event? What if they plan the next event too quickly for you to catch up? After all the church doesn’t have many members. What will you do? Whether you are relocating or traveling, keeping up with your church has never been easier than now, with the help of church giving apps.
These apps/platforms help members of a church stay connected with each other. Some of these apps allow each member to take notes during interactive sermons, listen to their messages while traveling, have access to certain materials, check their prayers list. They also allow the members to receive actual time news regarding their church and to give any donations. The Top 8 Church App Companies usually have all these features.
How these apps work is that they help the church build an app custom to them and their members from the beginning of the process so that there is no time wasted in figuring out the settings or features. Some of these apps come with the bible built in and the app users can read it whenever they wish. They also allow users to take any notes and submit their prayers. You as the user also has the option to interact with sermons, videos, and podcasts anywhere you wish with the help of a media player provided in some apps. They also allow notifications to be sent weekly with readings of the scripture, encouraging the members to give, reminding the members of any important events that may be approaching, baptism celebrations, and/or encouraging the members to volunteer, amongst many others.
Some of these apps also allow giving money through the app for tithe. A tithe or tenth is the name of the required contribution paid to a religious establishment or to a form of government. While they are voluntary in today’s time, they can still be paid in many forms such as checks, cash, or even stocks, while in the past they were mandatory and were paid in forms of agricultural goods amongst others.
While some member of the church might be familiar with this kind of technology, others might be skeptical, however, these platforms are the future in how you access what is important to not only you but your children as well. In fact, there seems to be a no better way to engage your child in your church’s activities than using an app since the majority of teens in America have or the ability to acquire a mobile phone. This way your whole family stays connected to your church while you’re on your next family vacation.
