Pocket Change Sunday

This is something we started at my church to continually bring in some sort of funds for our youth groups. One Sunday a month we have the youth stand at all the exits with some sort of a basket. As people leave the building, the take all their pocket change and place it into the baskets. The results were excellent. This allowed the congregation to feel at ease about what they were giving. Many times people feel like they have to donate, but Pocket Change Sunday is different. People almost never struggle with the concept of giving their pocket change away. Most of the time, people don’t even want their change. As time has gone on, people have even written checks on Pocket Change Sunday as a donation. This idea was brought about with hopes to earn enough money to buy a new church van. We now have a new church van. This can definitely work for you.
