November 18th “Technology and the Church”


Did you know that…. images-1

  • here are more mobile devices activated every minute being than there are babies born each and every day?
  • 6.5 Billion people have a mobile device! 93% of the entire globe has gone mobile
  • Some 65% of online adults use some form of social media and the percentage is even
  • higher for youth.
  • Almost 1.5 billion people are monthly active FaceBook users around the world.

How are we as ministers of the gospel utilizing technology and social media to reach people for Jesus Christ? Do we see technology as a hindrance and distraction to ministry or do we see it as a tool to minister more effectively in this ever pervasive technological world? From social media to websites, email, smart phones, apps, church software integration systems, and more – it is overwhelming to say the least for just about anyone to keep up! With all the options out there for us to utilize, it can be so overwhelming for some of us that we just don’t bother. Where do we find the balance between being consumed by it all and ignoring it all together? When it comes to technology, can we consider the admonition of Paul to ‘become all things to all’ so that we can win some for Christ?

Join us on Tuesday November 18th at our monthly lunch meeting to discuss this very topic. Here are the details for our November meeting….

THEME: Technology and the Church
DATE/TIME: Tues. November 18th, 2014, 12noon – 1:30pm
LOCATION: Youth for Christ, 1338 Avenue B North
Seeing that parking is a bit tight at the YFC building in a residential area, the “Carpenter’s Church” 2 blocks west of their building has a parking lot on the corner of Avenue D and 35th Street and you are welcome to park there in the event you have difficult parking on the street by the YFC building. http://yfcsask.com/contact/
COST: The meal is just $5.00 per person.
Please RSVP to: semfellowship@gmail.com so we can prepare for the meal.
If you are planning on coming, do not forget to RSVP. If you do RSVP, please make sure you show up!
Each SEMF meeting, regardless of the topic always comes with opportunities to meet, share and connect with others in ministry throughout our community. Every relationship we build outside the four walls of our own church or ministry is an opportunity for the kingdom of our King to be expanded. We hope to see you out on November 18th!

God bless you…

SEMF SURVEY Reminder:

Our executive committee has been encouraged by the first two monthly meetings this year together! We look forward to growing together in faith, unity and purpose as we serve our city together! At the same time, our monthly meetings don’t allow us to garner adequate feedback from you so we have developed a simple survey (10 questions) that will take no more than 10-15 minutes of your time. Thank you in advance for your participation!
