We recommend that churches encourage members to sign up for automated giving in January and May. Here is a sample that you might consider putting in your Sunday bulletin.
How many checks a month do you write?
Paper check usage has declined from 60% of all payments in 2000 to around 20% today. More people today use electronic means and automated payments to do commerce instead of writing checks. So, if you are writing fewer checks, you are not alone.
