Real Life

July 6th, 2007 at 07:16 am

DH and I have been attending church online. Now, before you start thinking I'm a cult member let me tell you a little bit about how we got involved. We were stationed in Corpus Christi, TX and started going to Real Life Fellowship and immediately fell in love with it. When we moved to Florida we were sad that we would be losing this great church and that we would have to find a new one. About the same time that we moved, Real Life started up an online "campus". It can be found at: www.reallifeconnect.org

They tape one of the Corpus Christi services and play it online Saturday at 7pm Central and Sunday 11 am Central for the world to see. There also is a chat room feature where you can talk with other people who are watching the service and also with Chris, the online pastor.

I think this church would be great for anyone, but I see it fulfilling a very special role in the military. First of all, I know for the past 2 years while training DH has hardly lived in one spot for longer than 8 months. Repeatedly finding new churches is hard and frankly we haven't always done it. With this online church you can still be connecting with the same people no matter where you are living.

My favorite reason though is that families can still attend church together while deployed. I know that having that shared experiences even while he's gone would be special and nice. We already have at least one member who is stationed in Bahrain.

The two services are Saturday at 7 pm Central and Sunday 11am Central. Check it out yourself at Real Life Online www.reallifeconnect.org or pass it on to someone who might be interested. DH and I usually attend the Sunday service if you want to say hi!

    We too "attend" church on line. Our old home church has live on line services. http://www.wordoflifehawaii.com/

    We did online or tv church for years until a local city church opened a branch in our neighborhood. Now we have a church meeting in our development's so-called country club building upstairs from the swimming pool that is a live broadcast of a church in town that we watch on a big projection screen. Sometimes that's just how it goes. Sunday School for the kids is with real teachers though.

    How awesome! You know, when it comes to worship, it is such a personal choice. It is nice to see you have found somewhere to feel you belong!
