“We have to shift to do ministry in unconventional, creative and innovative ways,” said the Rev. Michael L. Bowie Jr., national executive director of Strengthening the Black Church for the 21st Century (SBC21), “and that happens on the right side of the boat.” A conference called, Shift Happens, Doing Ministry from the right side was held at St. John’s UMC, Houston during the 25th anniversary of SBC21.
Looking for a way to worship without leaving the house?
A number of churches in the Texas Annual Conference are posting sermons online.
You don’t have to miss a service if you’re out of town or if you prefer to stay at home. Viewers can also enjoy multiple preaching styles and even virtually “attend” different churches. There’s a lot going on Sundays in the TAC that you won’t want to miss.
Sermons are often available to livestream on Sunday and several congregations also record services for on-demand viewing. Check them out at: https://www.txcumc.org/sermons.
We would like to include your church in this list. Please let us know if you are posting a resource online by sending a link to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
