Learn more about the ways in which we are using technology, social media, and virtual spaces for ministry. In 2021, Roberts Park UMC celebrated 200 years in ministry. In 2022, we begin our next 200 years, recognizing more and more that we are being called to utilizing the internet and all its gifts as an extension of our ministry.

Bible Talk (Part I)

Pastor Carmen and Lianna (RPUMC Communications Director) met at Christian Theological Seminary when they began their Master of Divinity program back in 2019. During one of their first classes, they read the book Permission Granted by Dr. Jennifer Grace Bird, and it deeply affected the ways in which they interacted with the Bible. 

Together, they are leading a study on the classic Sunday School stories from "David and Goliath" to "Jonah and the Whale." They'll teach and practice asking holy questions and seeking guidance from the Holy Spirit to illuminate the sacred text of Christianity.

The first part of this study is on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. from January 25th through March 1st. Signup using this form:

Technology @RobertsParkUMC

When Covid-19 hit in 2020, Roberts Park started a long run of technology updates to keep up with the changing times. With the lockdowns, we purchased new camera, audio, and lighting equipment and started pre-recording our worship services. These services streamed on Facebook and Youtube on Sunday morning. We then began a comprehensive update of our live-streaming equipment to anticipate going back to live worship. Starting with Easter, our first in person worship service, we started live-streaming our services. We have added new speakers, a modern sound console, robotic cameras, a live streaming computer, new microphones, and brand new lighting equipment. 

With our dedicated tech team, we offer all of our worship services livestreamed online and on demand. Check out our previous services here: RPUMC Video Archives
