"Next Sunday, we’ll kick off a series on money here at our church."
Do you hate making announcements like that at your church? Did any of you just cringe at the thought? If you so, don’t worry, you’re in good company!
Most people (church leaders included) struggle with how to approach the subject of finances at church. It can be awkward. It can be confusing. It can be convicting. And because of those and many other reasons just like them, people aren’t sure how (or even if) they should address money in church.
When it comes to talking money in the church, most seem to fall in to one of two categories:
- Avoid the subject completely out of fear of making anyone uncomfortable.
- Harp on the matter by making every one feel guilty about it almost every week.
