In a Salvation Army church what do they call making a collection of money? I think they have a certain phrase.

    It depends on the particular Salvation Army. Passing the plate was an old custom during the depression.

    offering is more biblical.

    However, several times when I visited, they said nothing. They just had a special song and started passing the collection plate. Everyone knew what to do.
