Church Online is an incredible opportunity to experience church from wherever you are - and so many of you have joined LCBC as a part of our online community, whether it’s once in a while when you can’t make it in person or Church Online is your LCBC location! No matter how you utilize Church Online, sometimes attending church from your living room can start to feel stale. Here are a few ways to stay engaged when attending Church Online:
1. Change up how you do church
If your routine is starting to feel tired, switch it up! If you're used to tuning in to Church Online from the same room every week, try going to a different room in your house or heading outside if the weather's nice! You can also experiment with catching a gathering at a different time of day. Challenge yourself to engage in worship differently by standing up and singing or dancing, or taking notes during the message. Breaking out of your ordinary cycle can give you a fresh outlook on Church Online.
2. Involve the whole family
Did you know that Church Online isn’t just for adults? We have kidVenture Island environments for your kids ages 2 through Grade 4 and LCBC Student Ministry environments for students in Grades 5-12! These environments are created specifically for your children to connect with other kids and students and learn about Jesus. Doing church together while everyone learns at their own level is a great way to stay engaged online!
3. Go beyond the weekend
Church isn’t just a weekend activity - there are LCBC events and opportunities that you can be part of, whether you travel to one of our physical locations or host your own event right where you are. Be sure to subscribe to receive weekly Need to Know emails and monthly updates from Pastor Jason Mitchell, and follow us on social media @LCBCchurch to stay up-to-date on everything happening around church: Worship Nights, Student camps, serve opportunities, and more!
4. Don’t do church (or life) alone
Take your church experience to the next level by connecting in a Group! Whether you attend Church Online or at a location, there are Groups available based on hobbies, interests, life stage, and more that you can join to find common ground. In a Group, you'll have deep discussions that enrich your faith, and go through life with a community of people. Use our Group Finder on LCBCchurch.com to find a Group and get started, or learn more about starting a group of your own!
When we tend to follow the same routine over and over again, it’s easy to check out and feel less engaged, and the same is true when it comes to Church Online. Try one of the ways above to shake up how you do church and stay engaged each week as your worship and learn at LCBC.
LCBC stands for Lives Changed By Christ. We are one church in multiple locations across Pennsylvania. Find the location closest to you or join us for Church Online. We can’t wait to connect with you!
