This might come as a shock, but our world has gone digital on everything from grocery shopping to exercise (still trying to figure this one out)! This creates a unique opportunity for churches.

If that doesn’t make you want to login to your church website builder and start editing your about page ASAP, I don’t know what will.
Question: Who do you call when you need help? Well, it usually depends on what kind of help you need. If it’s an emergency, you call 911. If you need advice, you probably call a friend.
