Spiritual Health: Religion embraces technology
For some time, churches have started to enhance their offerings to appeal to a broader audience. Several have turned to daily streaming classes as an add-on to their Sunday business model. They now offer self improvement and personal growth classes, business development and even children’s courses.
Some churches focus on bringing singles together, marital counseling and support groups for mothers as well as family. Some churches record their sessions for later streaming or live streaming during services to alleviate the restrictions of specific worship times.
Vous church is one that offers streaming worship for adults and even for children. They even have community outreaches called VOUS Crews. VOUS Crews are small gatherings of 10-15 people who meet in different places around South Florida to hang, eat and talk about life. Crews are where members pray for each other and support each other. These gatherings take place every other week.
