I have a question about something that I have never even thought about before; until recently.
I was on a Reformed board, it was said that taking up an offering should never be part of a worship service.
To tell you the truth; as I said it was something I have never even thought of before. Every single Church I have ever attended Reformed or otherwise, even when I was on holidays has taken up an offering during service. Yes I know there are local Churches that choose to use an offering box; but I have always thought that was just a matter of conscience.

Can you provide me with some information on the issue?
