As society becomes more and more technologically savvy, congregations are finding ways to use technology to complement their work. Computers, internet, email, social networking, database systems, and multi-media are all part of the picture. Center for Congregations staffers Nancy Armstrong and Aaron Spiegel will help your congregation explore technology so you can decide what best fits your community. The goal is godly service, not technological glitz.
Co-authors of the book 40 Days and 40 Bytes: Making Technology Work for Your Congregation, Armstrong and Spiegel are uniquely qualified to help you think about the role of technology in your congregation. They worked with more than 100 congregations in the Center's innovative Computers and Ministry Grants Initiative to help congregations address the challenges they face when using computer technology in their ministries.
TechTalk is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at St. Paul's United Church of Christ, 2227 W. Michigan St. in Evansville, and Thursday, March 6, at Scottsburg United Methodist Church, 616 S. Honey Run Parkway.
The cost is $30 a person ($25 for congregational teams of three or more). The fee includes lunch, parking and a copy of the book, 40 Days and 40 Bytes. Registrations received by Feb. 27 guarantee lunch and a copy of the book.
