Church Visitors & Bibles

How does your church handle visitors who don’t own Bibles? Do they have Bibles in the pews and then announce that those are a gift to anyone who doesn’t have one? Do they handle it discreetly? Do they have a visitors gathering where they hand them out?

I have two fears:

1) I don’t want anyone who comes to church needing a Bible to leave without one. So I fear taking for granted everyone has one at home somewhere. 

2) I don’t want to embarrass anyone who doesn’t have one. So I fear making a big production so that anyone who doesn’t have one feels embarrassed for taking one. 

So, how does your church handle it? Your suggestions and comments are greatly needed and valued!
