Online Worship Builds Community

Pastor John Zimmerman in Corry, Pa., realized the power of streaming his worship services when an 82-year old woman stopped in. This elder, who never attends worship, made the comment, “You know, I couldn’t attend church last Sunday … because my computer broke.” Then he discovered that an over-the-road trucker who lives nowhere near the Corry church stops at a truck stop every Sunday to tune in, and often invites other truckers over for hot dogs and online worship. The Corry church is now in touch with its online congregation and connects through “online ushers,” who help Internet participants share their prayer concerns and other contributions with the on-site congregation. Discover the power of technology to expand and build Christian community, explore related links and reflect on discussion questions by reading "How Online Worship Can Build Community," an article written by Joan Huyser-Honig and posted on the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship website.
