Monday to Saturday is where life happens, it is when people feel the most isolated, where life issues arise and the time when we really need to be doing ‘church’. As the writer of Hebrews reminds us in chapter 10 and verses 24-25 “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
It is difficult in a non-stop world to find a regular time to meet that suits a wide range of lifestyles, it is often not by choice that people do not meet with each other in this way. The internet makes a great way for us to ‘meet’ with each other on a daily basis, so that we can provide encouragement and hope during the difficult times.
Social media can be an effective tool to keep members together throughout the week however it is not always the most appropriate place to share sensitive information, having a secured members area for the church will provide a safer place for information to be shared with one another.
iKnow Church provides a secure cloud-based platform that provides every member access to the relevant areas that they are involved with in church. So that if little Johnny has broken his leg and his parents, Jenny and Dave can’t attend homegroup, then they can quickly and easily notify the group and ask for prayer at the same time!
Dave is also in the worship team and he was supposed to be learning a new song for Sunday, with the ability to add attachments within iKnow iShare, Dave can have the song sheet at hand whilst he is waiting for little Johnny.
Having a cloud-based system that gives the whole church access, wherever they are, whilst providing varying permission levels, provides members with the flexibility that is needed in the modern world, whilst ensuring that as a church, we are building one another up throughout the week because church is not just for Sunday.
You can even create a mobile app for your church that will take weekly church integration to another level, take a look at our video below to see more.
