Should I follow Electronic Culture in the church?
To answer that question, let’s look at an example. Can we build a house using the old hammer-and-nail method? Yes, we can. But we can also employ a faster, swifter, and an easier method: Using an electric nail gun. We’ll be able to nail faster, with less energy, and get the job done in a fraction of the time. We can think of using media in the church in the same way.
Think about it. We get visitors in our church on a weekly basis. As always, we can say our goodbyes as they walk out the door and hope they come back next week. Or, we can connect with them during the week by sending an email, text and ask them to visit our Facebook group or website where they can find resources to grow and learn about Jesus. Why not use the technology and media tools around us to make an even greater connection with people? Using media does not take us away from the saving grace of Jesus. Can it detract us from our message? Yes, it can-– if it’s missing one key ingredient: PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.
Let’s enjoy and benefit from the best of both worlds, the advantages of technology and the beauty of traditional forms of communication. All the while keeping in mind that personal relationships with people are ultimately the only way to make disciples and build the church.
Be a part of our media ministry by CONNECTING, SHARING, MEETING, and INVITING more people to our church. It’s a great evangelism tool.

Finally, let this verse from James 5 be a reminder that we have a responsibility towards our community to encourage each other and bring the wanderers back to the truth.
My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
