Like any other organization, to improve financial condition increase revenues and decrease expenses.
On the increase revenues side, for example, seek to actively attract new members.
On the decrease expense side, you'll need to critically review all expenses and see where cuts can be made.

I'd recommend a silent auction. Those can raise more money than you might think. You have everyone in the congregation donate things and then invite the community to come bid for it.

This is a very good question. Silent auctions are one way, galas and other community events can also help fundraise. You can also consider changing how your congregation contributes to the church. You can consider allowing recurring credit card payments (they get points and you get cash) or other fundraising tools.

You can consider www.firstgiving.com as a simple option. www.biddingforgood.com is a great online auction system if you wanted to expand an online bidding mechanism to raise money.

You can also look try calling www.frontstream.com and ask about FastTransact (it's not on the website, but still an available product, to expand credit card giving)

As STBaret said, any way to increase revenues and decrease costs is the way to go.

You can also have people "sponsor" tables where one table might fit 8 - 10 people.
