God’s People Gather

Timely resources for a timely issue

Already before COVID-19, some churches were utilizing video and streaming technology for worship and Bible study. The pandemic forced many more congregations to make this pivot. In much of the country, in-person worship was prohibited for months. As lockdowns lift, congregational leaders are wrestling with two key questions:

  • How can we encourage our members to return to in-person worship?
  • How should we think about virtual worship post-pandemic?

The first is a timely, virus-related question. That second question is timeless, something churches may be asking until Jesus returns.

The God’s People Gather program, attempts to help congregations answer those questions.
