If you are a start up church without a lot of cash to spend for software, look in to http://www.techsoup.org they have small administrative fees for the software but when you can get an Adobe CS5 suite for 100-160 $ it's worth looking into.

If you are going to use TechSoup for software, you must read the Rules, Eligibility and Restrictions about the licensed use of a product. An example is Adobe, their Rules, Eligibility and Restrictions state:
"The following is a partial list of organization types that are ineligible for Adobe donations. . . . •Organizations, such as churches, houses of worship, and seminaries, whose primary mission is religious."

So make sure that you are eligible.

I've never met the requirements for any Techsoup product, even with a school attached to our church - unless you are a non-religious non-profit, you're probably going to be out of luck with them.
