The age of the complete cyber community St.Pixels has arrived. You can go to church in your living room. Today the first ever cyber church opened its door or rather logged on.
Thou shalt love thy neighbor – all 600 million of them? Hosting the first-ever interactive service on Facebook, St. Pixels, an online 3D church, is redefining the way most people worship. “Love it or hate it, Facebook is where people are in 2011,” said St. Pixels pioneer Mark Howe in a statement. “If the Gospel is for today’s connected culture, it has to find a distinctive but culturally-appropriate place within social networking.”
Designed by Howe, with additional programming by Barry Wickett of Dark Green Media and artwork by Michael Evans and Anthony Ramm of Carousel Digital, the multimedia church is hoping to proclaim Christ through new media outlets.
Behind computer screens and iPhones, worshippers will have the opportunity to listen to Bible readings and a sermon, sing along to hymns and key in prayer requests. Have you visited? Tell us about your experience.
