What Do You Think?

As the new year starts, it is also the start (well, restart) of my stint as a guide for the Church & Web Network. What would you like to talk about? I don’t have nearly all the answers, but I can definitely pose questions, find some information or sources of information, and solicit discussion. See the list of topics in the blog - pick from there or come up with your own! Let's talk.

Tablets in Church?

Looking back on technology in 2013, tablets were a pretty important item. Are you or those you know using tablets at work? At home? How about at church?

Are You Mobile?

Wherever you look, people are peering, or talking, or singing along, or listening as they walk, ride, fly — whatever. What about you and your church? Are you going mobile?

Usage in the Cloud

There are many functions and workflows that traditionally done by hand were teadious or cumbersome. There are many ways that these are easier and more efficient online or in the 'cloud'. How has your church benefited from transitioning a function into the 'cloud'?

www.TakeThemAMeal.com

I just became aware of the site www.TakeThemAMeal.com which is a "free online tool for coordinating the delivery of meals to someone in need". Has anyone used this site? It seems like it could be a real time-saver compared to doing it all by phone.

What's a good internet-based method for church backups?

I missed World Backup Day by a bit, but it's always a good day to talk about backups. I'm looking to setup backups for two very different churches: one is a traditional, small town church and the other is a very budget-conscience inner city church. Any backup solution needs to be drop-dead simple, both for the end users and the admin. Clearly free or cheap is also a must for the inner city church. I'm still wading through options like Mozy, Crashplan, Dropbox, etc. I was wondering if anyone else had practical experience with putting an internet-based solution (as opposed to tape backups) into...

Besides doing a podcast for those who want to listen anytime, we have set a goal for ourselves to be able to audio stream, and possibly video stream the service. I would appreciate some suggestions, guidelines, and/or a procedure on how to set this up. D. Klein http://www.sussexcrc.org/

How do we set up an electronic calendar that reminds us of significant dates in the lives of widows/widowers?

We would like to schedule visits to coincide with a widow's or widower's wedding anniversary or anniversary of the date of their spouse's death. We would like to enter the data into a calendar once and then have the calendar update itself every year. Further, we would like to have the ability to mark the calendar after visits are completed--both when and by whom. Our church records are on ACS. Unless we are missing something, we cannot use our current software according to the above preferences. Sincerely, Bryce Mensink, Associate Pastor Palos Heights, IL Christian Reformed Church
