Have you ever been in a pew at church flipping through your hymnal to locate the proper page? Or perhaps you missed a significant church function because you neglected to look in the bulletin. Again, the church helper have come to the rescue, so do not be alarmed, my fellow worshipers!
But you might wonder, what exactly can these clever little programs do?
First and foremost, church apps may make it simple for you to access all of your worship resources. There will be no more frantic hymnal flipping or sharing of the projector remote. Instead, all the service’s prayers, readings, and song lyrics are available by simply pulling out your phone. And if you’re very tech adept, you could even use the app on your phone to run the service yourself by connecting it to a projector.
Church applications can inform you about events and activities at the church and provide worship resources. For example, would you like to RSVP for the potluck dinner? I’m sure there’s a button for that. Are you interested in helping out with the community service project? You probably guessed that there is a button for that as well. You are no more searching the church bulletin for information or sifting through stacks of paper flyers.
However, church apps are beneficial on days other than Sunday mornings. You may communicate with other churchgoers throughout the week because of the built-in messaging capability on many of them. The messaging option can be used for various purposes, including finding prayer partners, setting up a carpool to the following bible study, and simply keeping in touch with your church pals.
Remember the convenience factor, though. All of these capabilities are accessible through a church app at any time and from any location. No more hurrying to be at church on time only to find your hymnal is at home. Instead, to get started, take out your phone.
