Is watching online really church?


You might wonder, “If you watch church online, how is that going to church?” The thing is—even though the people can’t physically touch one another, they’re still there. They’re still gathered. They’re able to connect to God together. And they’re able to become friends, even. In fact, because of the rise in social media and internet friendships, people are more likely to feel connected with a person through a screen than ever before. At each of our services, people have the opportunity to connect and chat with people. Online church is not the same as worshipping together with the church family. However, especially at this time, there are individuals that work on weekends, are sick, homebound, or are taking care of others. For these reasons, we believe online church is church!
