Church Online – Yea or Nay? – MBFLP 275

One of the unexpected results of the pandemic has been the expansion of online-church opportunities. Even small churches like our own were able to use inexpensive tools and software to broadcast streaming worship services – without a technical crew! But is this a useful expansion to the church’s ministry and outreach – or a distraction, or even an enemy, to real worship and fellowship?

Join us for this discussion as we seek a Biblical balance about church broadcasts of all sort – and how to make the best use of them!

Passages of Interest

Hebrews 10:24-25 – And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

Acts 2:42, 46-47 – And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. … So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.

MBFLP – Youth Groups – Good, Bad, or Depends?

MBFLP - Youth GroupsReports circulating online suggest that large numbers of evangelical Christians are skeptical that youth ministries are effective – or even Biblical. Yet thousands of American kids (and their parents) are involved with the local church youth group, and some families won’t consider attending a church that doesn’t have one. Are these common branches of church life a good thing, a bad thing, or something which can go either way? In this episode, we share some positive and some negative things we’ve seen, and hear from our adult son John Calvin Young about youth ministry done well — and conclude that maybe the question is not Yes or No, but more When and How to organize separate events for young people in the church!
