They’ve had self-service kiosks at department stores for years, so the use concept is very much a part of our culture. Remember when you always handed your bank card or credit card to the cashier at Walmart? Now we do it ourselves. The same goes for fueling-up at the gas station.

Mightybell is the “small group” of social media, as you can engage in deeper, personal conversations, discussions, real-time chat and private messaging.
This may be an awesome online church group planning resource!
A was recently asked by a fairly large church about online church membership training apps. Coming from a more modest size church, I had never thought of such a thing!
However, the more I thought about it, the more I realized how cool of an idea this would be–even for smaller churches.
So, here are six online church membership training apps I found in researching online training tools.
VBS can be hairy and sometimes a little scary if your outreach was a success and you have more kids show-up than what you expected–a good problem I would say.
One thing that can really make VBS go smoother is a streamlined child check-in system. Not only will guests feel more comfortable and have confidence in your church’s ability to keep their children safe and accounted for, but starting VBS on the right foot is sure to make the rest of the VBS experience more satisfying.
