Interactive Online Bible Study Videos

Well, it’s coming together… we are about to launch our new Interactive Online Bible Study. Two short videos were uploaded today and a few more short videos will be added by the end of the day. The idea is for you to be able to view the short videos anytime before Monday night at 7pm when we will have our hangout.

Hangouts are live chats or discussions we can have online. Prior to 7pm on Monday I will create the new hangout and we will get started. I am really excited about this and the enthusiasm of those who signed up already is growing!

If you haven’t signed up, there is plenty of room for you. Tell your fiends and colleagues, too! The more the merrier, right? I am having fun creating and posting the videos and I think we will all learn a lot through out online discussions.

Here is the link where you can view all the videos: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLiIzbXoZFdzMDBh9RZvHh9wTm_SEGtdNO

Watch these videos and spread the word! I look forward to being with you interactively on Monday night at 7pm!

Technology and the Church

Some people say the church is old-fashioned. Some go even further and claim that the church is irrelevant!

What do you think?

Where does our modern technology fit in with the church? Should we even care about this new technology?

I believe the church has been in the dark ages for a while. It is time to embrace the new technology we have at our fingertips to reach the newer generations with the message and love Jesus has to offer. We could choose to stay in the dark ages, but if we do, the writing for our future, or lack of it, is clearly on the wall. Moving forward requires us to embrace technology.

So, we are starting a new Interactive Online Bible Study, which will use some of this modern technology. On Sunday in worship I will show a short teaser to introduce the concept to the congregation. The great news is we have 7 people signed up already!

Here’s how it will work. Each week I will post some short videos on a Bible topic. We are starting with: “How to Understand the Bible.” Participants can view this video clips throughout the week at their convenience and they will be available online for anyone to view. Then, one evening each week, I will host an online forum to discuss the videos and topic for the week. This will allow interaction among us as we discuss and learn together!

I know some of you work or are busy on Wednesday mornings when we hold our traditional Bible Study. Hopefully, this new format will allow more people to get involved in studying the Bible and learning what it means for us today.

You can join the Interactive Online Bible Study by clicking here. If you have any trouble signing up, please let me know.

Let’s embrace technology and show that we really are a relevant and vibrant church!

Just imagine the possibilities!!!
