TIPS FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF ONLINE WORSHIP
Worship is a great gift. It can nurture our faith and connect us to our wider community of faith. Plan ahead and set this sacred time aside for you and your family. Set up a space where you can all enjoy worship. Light a candle, set down a bible and keep a journal nearby for notes.
BE FULLY PRESENT
We all will face a lot of distractions once the service kicks off. In today’s techno world, digital distraction can take you away from worship. Open your preferences and slide the notifications to off. Don’t worry! Those other notifications will still be there when we are finished. Choose to stay committed & engaged.
LIKE, SHARE & COMMENT
If you choose to watch this morning’s service via our Facebook page, know you can interact with many others who are watching at the same time. Click “like/love” buttons, share the service, and/or leave a comment or prayer in the Comments section.
WORSHIP, DON’T JUST WATCH
Worship is being prepared for you and your family to celebrate God and connect with community. You and the folks you are watching with are participants. Make this a spiritual time – sing, pray, & read the word along with us. Journal those notable quotes and prayers.
After church we usually gather together for conversation. Why not do so now, too? After the service is over, call or video chat with a friend. Talk about the service, the readings, the hymns, the sermon, or anything else going on in your life. Right now, it is very easy to feel isolated and cut off from the people we care about. You can change that by reaching out!
We know not every church is able to live stream services, and not everyone goes to church. Perhaps this is the opportunity to invite someone to “church” who is wary or intimidated to walk in our front door. This could introduce them to Symons Valley United Church and God in a very un-intimidating way. What is great about technology is that they don’t even have to be local!
