Joining with other believers in worship is an intrinsic part of the Christian experience for many. Although the Scriptures encourage the faithful to gather together, trips, sickness, business obligations, and other circumstances may prevent a believer from attending church in person. Without interaction, it doesn’t take long to feel disconnected from a local body.
Thanks to the internet, many ministries have tapped into a way for members to stay connected and a means to reach the world in a literal sense. At the same time, online services allow believers to “visit” multiple churches all over the globe from their laptops, SMART TVs, and phones. Check out these free resources for spiritual refreshment and inspiration at any time and any place:
