As we approach the beginning of a new year and reflect upon lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, the religious sector has shown that our willingness to adapt during times of crisis is crucial for success.

The Associated Press reports that small houses of worship have increased their membership and giving during the pandemic by being creative and adapting to new ways of living during these times. From streaming online services from airplanes, to facilitating contests for the best masks, houses of worship have continued to serve their communities and show resiliency during these trying times.

Proper insurance coverage is critical for all houses of worship, especially during the holiday season, when charitable activities and mission work are more prevalent. Food, clothing and toy distribution efforts, additional worship services, holiday performances and other special programs and outreach activities make this the busiest time of year for religious organizations.
