Giving Through The Offering Plate

Most of the good folk of our congregation like to place their gift, to the church, into the offering plate that is passed during the church services.  Some reasoning for this is that they worship regularly and they feel that, as part of the ceremony, their gift is accepted and dedicated by the church to do God's work.  It receives a prayer to that end.

Also, in the history of church, there has been sacrificial giving that was taken to the altar, which is symbolized by placing an offering in the offering plate.

Another reason is that it is convenient since they are there when the plate is passed.
