Do you use your cell phone in church?
Is it encouraged or shunned in your church?
Westminster Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbytery of San Fernando in Burbank, CA. Prior to the service they actually showed this video of how they handle cell phones in church.
This is such a great topic because you’re probably firmly rooted one side or the other. . .
Either cell phones are a menace, to the preacher, to the people around you, and a distraction from the activity of worship itself OR it can be an amazing tool that augments the worship experience as well as empowering the congregation to be evangelistic *during* the actual service itself.
What is interesting is that ministries like YouVersion have even explicitly built services to encourage smart phone usage in church.
Which side are you on? Are smart phone cell phones something that should be allows in church? Share your comments below.
