Houses of worship are facing an uphill challenge in the modern day and age when it comes to staying relevant and top of mind in their communities. Institutions like Third Baptist Church are taking steps toward better accommodating their congregations with the help of technology.
Third Baptist Church is in Grand Center, an arts, entertainment and educational district of St. Louis, Mo. Third’s services range from the season of Advent to Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, and more. The church is surrounded by a university, a public housing project, and various cultural organizations.
The board at Third Baptist Church wanted to modernize its sermons. They wanted a space that’s fitting for sermons and worship, as well as movie nights and showing videos to a broad audience. And that includes streaming for a remote congregation too.
