Announcing the CME Church Technology Survey

Calling Clergy and Laity of All Ages (Youth, Young Adults and Adults) to Participate!

The CME Church Technology Survey is located here <https://thecmechurch.org/technologysurvey/>.

The Department of Communication and Information Technology (CIT) has created the CME Church Technology Survey to evaluate technology resources used and needed within our connectional church, with a two-fold emphasis for local churches and our members. We need our CME members, clergy and laity of all ages (youth, young adults and adults), to complete the survey by December 3, 2022.

The CME Church Technology Survey will help us to learn from our membership about different perceptions and opinions regarding using technology in our churches and members’ homes, and gather insights on software tools, Internet services, and relevant technical skills. Additionally, the survey can help with understanding the challenges faced by our connectional churches and members, identify the resources that are needed to meet the needs, and further assist us with defining communication and information technology strategies for our connectional church. https://thecmechurch.org/technologysurvey/>. Please take the time to fill out the survey by Saturday, December 3, 2022. It will take about 5 minutes to complete it. If you need assistance, call on a relative or friend to help you to fill out the survey.

Pastors — please include the survey link in your church’s bulletins and in your announcements.

A report on the results of the CME Church Technology Survey will be published in December, 2022.

Thanks for your participation and support!

Adult and Youth Virtual Church School Lesson

Available for 11/13/2022

video

We are pleased to share with you the success of last week’s Virtual Sunday School as published by the CME Department of Christian Education & Formation. The CME CED Church School YouTube Channel Videos have been viewed over 17,000 times since we created the YouTube Channel on March 20, 2020​. As committed, we offer to you this week’s Virtual Sunday School Lesson, “Wisdom as Enlightenment of Heart” with Dr. Carmichael D. Crutchfield as its instructor. We welcome Rev. Ulysses Gober, who is the pastor of Lampkin CME Church and is the Second Episcopal District Young Adult Representative for the Connectional Young Adult Ministry, offer our prayer. We also welcome Rev. Zachary Mullens, who is the pastor of Phillips CME Church in Hartford,CT, and is the Chaplain for the Connectional Young Adult Ministry, who offers our scripture reading. The video includes music, scripture, lecture, challenge, and application. It may be utilized in concert with your existing Sunday School or in substitution given the personal distancing parameters we are experiencing. For example, this video might be viewed by members in your congregations with a conference call held during the regular Sunday School period to offer facilitated discussion and review. There are CME Certified Christian Educators across the Episcopal Districts ready to offer assistance and creative solutions in concert with what we have done and are doing. Even during this crisis, we must be concerned about the spiritual needs of our congregations in addition to their physical and health needs. We welcome your feedback as we seek to expand the resources from the Department of Christian Education & Formation.

#BlackChurches4Broadband Encourages Families to Sign up for Emergency Broadband (Internet) Benefit

Our hero, the late Congressman John Lewis, said that internet access is “the civil rights issue of the 21st Century.” A high-speed home broadband (internet) connection is vital for full enfranchisement in today’s world. It opens the door to educational and economic opportunities, connects family and church communities, allows access to remote health care services, and empowers greater civic engagement and activism.

Congress recently created an Emergency Broadband Benefit giving eligible families up to $50 per month to pay for home broadband service. You may be eligible for the Emergency Broadband Benefit if your household has experienced a sudden loss of income during the pandemic, or is currently receiving federal benefits such as SNAP, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit, Lifeline, Pell Grants, or free and reduced-price school lunches.

Visit blackchurches4broadband.org to learn more about eligibility and how to sign up.
