Technological innovation at Grace
Posted: April 16, 2011 by Chris Pugh
I’m excited to tell you about something new we’ll be rolling out tomorrow at GracePolaris during the Sunday sermon.
Most of us have had the experience of listening to a sermon and having a question come to mind. Sometimes these questions have disappeared into the recesses of our brains by the time we have the chance to pose them to someone who would know the answer.
Over the next several weeks, you can avoid this frustration by texting your question to Grace during or after our sermons. The mechanics are pretty simple: just text 95030 and your question to 22333.
Grace will collect the questions (comments are OK too), and in the days following the sermon the pastor who preached will answer some of the questions on our Web site. The responses will appear on a page located in the same place as the sermon audio and video.
Twitter users can get in on the fun as well. Send a tweet with your question/comment using the hashtag #gracesermon041711 (each sermon will have a new tag in the #gracesermon[ddmmyy] format) and all of us on Twitter will be able to see what was on your mind. The pastor’s posted responses will incorporate selected questions sent via Twitter as well as via text message.
