I received this email the other day that reminded me how awesome technology is, especially when it serves a very significant and obvious need.
I wanted to shoot you an email because I though that ChurchCrunch might be interested in what we’re doing this Sunday at Community Church (http://thecommunitychurch.org).
We’re located in Ashburn, VA (a suburb of DC) and from late Friday night until early this morning, a storm that their saying is our areas largest December storm in history, dumped around two feet of snow on us.
As a result, we’ve had to cancel our normal Sunday morning services (9:00 and 10:45 am).
Since we’re unable to all gather together, we’re asking families to gather around the computer and worship with us online. We’ve quickly revamped our online campus (which is usually powered by livestream) for the occasion.
The page is located here.
I blogged about it here: http://www.brianayers.net/2009/12/20/church-online-this-morning/
Anyway, since winter is just getting started I’m sure a number of other churches are going to run into the predicament of what to do when there’s too much snow for service… I know we haven’t done it 100% right (I already know of a few things we need to do better next time) but it might be a fun and useful dialog to start.
Thanks for all you do!
Cool, right? Yeah. I thought so too.
