Protecting Your Family Online

By Joe Willmann | May 29, 2018 1:00:00 PM

Because of their leadership with various communication channels, church communicators are sometimes asked by parents how to keep kids safe online. This article was originally posted on the CPH Education blog to help parents and teachers learn how to do just that. We hope this post is helpful to you as you serve the families God has put in your life.

As a parent, God has entrusted you with the care and upbringing of your children. This task has not changed throughout all time. We are called to bring them to the life-giving water of Holy Baptism, to teach them the faith, and to protect them from all harm and evil. No pressure, Mom and Dad.

Free Resources to Stretch Your Budget

By Kimberly Myers | May 25, 2017 9:30:00 AM

 
When my husband and I were younger, we served as teachers in Southeast Asia. As part of our orientation, we were given the book Where There Is No Doctor, which taught us things like how to amputate our own limbs or assist someone having a baby. Fortunately, we never had to use that book for any medical procedures! Some years later, we moved to another location and I was asked to teach several literature classes…without textbooks. Somehow, I made do and ended up cobbling together a passable syllabus and materials.

Using GoToMeeting for Remote Bible Studies

By Dave Farnham | Mar 30, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Many churches provide a pastor’s Bible Study class that is taught each Sunday. If you’re like me, you know of some in your church who can’t attend because they have a required work schedule or are homebound or are facing other unique situations. Although a good number of churches post the pastor’s sermon (video or audio) online on the church website, there is a distinct difference between listening or watching a sermon and being involved and connected in studying the Bible. 

Studying the Bible leads to being more reflective, asking questions, and digging deeper. The connection that takes place can be more personal than in a large-group worship setting.

3 Ways for Churches to Give Thanks on Social Media

By Andrew Osborne | Nov 24, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Happy Thanksgiving! There is so much for which we have as Christians to be thankful! Despite our best (worst) efforts, God continuously gives us undeserved grace because of Jesus sacrifice on the cross. While year after year, our world seems to us to be falling deeper into sin and depravity, we remain thankful that our hope is in Christ and His promise to make all things new again.

6 Ways to Prepare Your Church for Advent

By Katy Munson | Oct 11, 2016 9:00:00 AM

I have to confess. For a church season that is focused on anticipation and preparation, I don’t have the best track record when it comes to anticipating or preparing for Advent (and Christmas) communication efforts in the months leading up to it. This often results in a bunch of hurrying and scurrying in a time set aside to for reflection, repentance, and preparation to celebrate Jesus’ first coming and wait expectantly for his return.

By Kimberly Myers | Oct 6, 2016 9:00:00 AM

I know, I know. It’s not even Reformation Day and you’re supposed to think about Christmas?

Instead of relegating social media to one more burdensome chore on your long list of holiday tasks, prepare and schedule social media content now so you can make the most of people’s seasonal joy while not burning yourself out.

By Amanda Lansche | Oct 4, 2016 9:00:00 AM

My mom writes about two emails a month, while my sister writes about a hundred a day. (Their days look very different!)
