Of course when you have an older group of people, they don't have the Internet. Some have the Internet but do not have DSL. We are living in a new fast communication age aren't we. Some have a computer but do not know how to use it. Some have an email but do not use it. Some will sign up for Facebook, etc, and never use it. Some of course don't have the time, nor believe all this is necessary. Come just have to be encouraged to try a new ways of communicating. And you also have to find different ways to commuicate too.
Each week I give out an outline, a full two to four page paper (more than an outline) of the message or lesson that I am going to speak on. And I encourage them to keep them in a three ring notebook binder.
The main purpose is to strengthen Believers in the Lord and building them up in Christ.
As look at many other websites I get all these ideas and then I start trying them out. That is why I have a few Bloggers and Websites and Soical Networking, and use a number of other forms to communicating.
Of course we can't compete with David Jeremiah, and Charles Stanley, and Church Swindoll, and John MacArthur, and John Piper and a dozen other good ministry. And I love to get their material and read myself. I would highly say they are some of the best material. I love watching them and listen to their messages and watch there services.
But at the same time, those in our church need us to do our best too. The personal touch of ministry.
