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!!!
