SILICON VALLEY, Calif. — Ever on the forefront of innovation, Adventist churches in Silicon Valley are beta testing 100% cashless offerings as of next Sabbath.
Offering baskets will still be passed down pews but only so members can wave their contactless cards or Apple Pay-enabled phones at them. The tops of the baskets have been sealed so as to prevent anyone sneaking in any old-school bills.
The Northern Californian churches will insist that members keep phones switched on at all times in case they are moved by the Spirit to make impromptu online donations to the church during particularly good special numbers.
