While it may feel awkward attending an online church service with a pastor you don't know, the church is made up of all Christian communities regardless of doxologies or theologies.

Church is more than a building in which we worship God, the Most High. The church is known all over the world as “a building used for public Christian worship”, but it's the body of believers that really is the Christian church.

Getting dressed up, catching up with friends and being in the presence of a pastor who gives knowledge, love and hope to his congregation are all amazing experiences when it comes to going to church every Sunday.

However, during COVID-19, practicing social distancing can make attending any large gatherings highly irresponsible, no matter how spiritual they are, at least until a vaccine for coronavirus has been discovered.

Online church service is great for people who have anxiety about being around people during COVID-19 or you are just too tired to get out of bed and get dressed up to go worship Christ with a small group of friends.

With technology continuously evolving, we have to stop and think about the way we are evolving as a society even in religion.

For example, through our technological enhancements, we can now go to church online, have therapy sessions online and even attend schools online.

Let’s get to reality and face the truth. It is much easier to charge your computer or iPad, connect to the internet and find a church that is streaming online to get that weekly motivation.

Whether the weather is below zero or if you are just not feeling up to it, the ability to log on and receive the same love and the same hope that you need to make it through the tests of life is liberating.

Sometimes when you are going through heartbreak, a rough week at work or feeling unappreciated, the church can be inspiring which gives you the fuel to fight the trials and tribulations that life gives us.

When we go through these rough moments and don’t want to get out of the comfort of our homes and personal spaces, it is great to be able to plug in our electronics and receive the word of the Lord in the privacy of our own environment.
