If you're someone who likes to find really good (and free!) apps, you probably already have YouVersion on your smart phone. But just in case you missed the memo, we want to introduce it to you and invite you to use it in our service.

Yes indeed, we are encouraging you to use your phone in church because the technology in this case is helping us to engage more of our congregation and we think that's a good thing.

We're considering this an experiment because we've never done this before and we're not sure how it's going to feel or what the participation level is going to be but it's definitely worth exploring. To start off we'll be using YouVersion to allow all of you to ask questions of our panel on Sunday, February 19th. We're talking about marriage and during the course of our discussion with the panel members we'd like to hear what you're thinking.

If you're game for something new here's all you have to do:
  1. Download the YouVersion app on your smart phone or iPod Touch. (NOTE: We will have a guest WiFi connection available by the 19th for you to use if you are not on a 3G or 4G network with your device.) You'll know you've got it when the icon looks like one at the bottom of the post.
  2. Tap the "Live" button (usually you have to scroll over one screen) and search for a live event. Use "freedomkw" as you search criteria.
  3. You will see Sunday, February 19 set up as an event and a question that you can answer. In this case, because of the format of the discussion, it's kind of like answering a Jeopardy question - your answer will actually be a question for the panel. 
We will also have a way that you can interact live if you are not hooked up to a smart phone, so never fear!

This is going to be fun - thanks for coming along for the ride and more importantly, engaging in the material that we're going to be learning together.
