Faiths Strengthened in Challenging Times

Religious organizations help their communities in times of joy and struggle, especially during this time of year. Many have experienced struggles during the pandemic, but these challenging times have also strengthened religious faith. In fact, a quarter of Americans say their faith has grown, and 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.

The religious sector has certainly shown that the ability to adapt during crises is crucial for success.

Like nearly every other business, houses of worship needed to alter the ways they provided services to their communities to make followers comfortable. Livestreaming worship services and accepting digital donations are examples of how they creatively adapted.

Proper insurance coverage is critical for all houses of worship and religious organizations, 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 their busiest time of year.
