This Sunday: Technology: A Useful Tool or a Useless Distraction?

Sunday, 20 September – 9:30am

We live in a world of technology, all the more so since the advent of Covid-19. This pandemic has highlighted the blessing of technology, as it allows us to carry on work safely, to connect with loved ones around the world, even to attend church while not being able to attend in person. But it has also highlighted the downsides of technology, as we yearn to get back to in-person connection and struggle with the frustrating limits of technology. As with any tool, technology will be useful or useless depending on how much it is used in the service of what is spiritual.

This service will be streamed on Facebook. Go to https://www.facebook.com/newchurchwestville/live where there will be a live video from about 30 minutes before the service is scheduled to start. See more about Online Worship Services below.

  • Song Lyrics
    About 10 minutes before the service starts (9:20) we will have some songs that you can sing along with at home. You can download the lyrics to the songs here.
  • Readings
    The readings for the service can be found here.
  • Text Sermon
    A PDF of the text version of the sermon can be found here.

If you are planning on attending in person you must fill out the Health Screening Questionnaire each time you are attending on the Sunday morning before the service.

You must also read the full explanation of the rules and fill out a very short survey to let us know if you and/or the other members of your household would like to attend in person (if allowed). It’s not the same as the questionnaire.
