Religion is a touchy subject for many people. It’s based on a faith many people feel inside and can’t be argued or explained to non-believers. It’s been around as long as humans have walked this planet. When Johannes Gutenberg, in Mainz, Germany, printed the Bible, using moveable type in the 1450s, there were those who called it heresy. It was, of course, a way to provide Bibles to the masses. So, is the use of QR code technology now something houses of worship should shun? Of course not!

  3. QR codes linked to websites inform the public of events and special celebrations.
  4. Entice a younger, tech-savvy following to bolster attendance in an aging parish.
  5. Provide video and other information about religious structures and religious tourism spots.
  6. Place QR codes on T-shirts of youth group events to share the organization membership information.
  7. Make more information on religious learning available through QR code links to articles and other sources. You can even create printed children’s stories with QR code links to engage young children with videos and music.
  8. Have QR codes linked to videos of religious rock groups for younger followers for the “cool” factor!
  9. Link QR codes to a live webcam, broadcasting services for those who can’t attend services due to physical or distance restrictions (military personnel serving far away can still attend services via internet connections).
  10. Save funds by going digital instead of printing flyers and bulletins. Once a QR code, posted in your house of worship, is scanned, it can be bookmarked for members to check for upcoming sermon subjects and events. It can even provide SMS and email reminders to those who use QR codes to register with a database.
