So what type of Christian resources do LifeChurch.tv provide?
The Message section alone is would make this a fantastic free website. Basically you are provided with everything you need to run a church on a Sunday! Most of the messages are grouped into sections (e.g. prayer, I love my church) with each group covering a few weeks. Each week includes a video for the preach, the message outline, and also some small group questions for follow up application of the talk. As well as this there are also trailers and other graphics that can be used to promote the sermon.
The quality is all very high.
The Kids section includes resources split into the age groups of 2-5 years and 6-11 years. The resources you can download include sheets for the kids to take home, a guide for the week, theme songs, teaching segments and other items too. All you would need to do is add in your own games to complete your kids club!
Within the youth section you can find a message/video and also some questions to apply the video to each others lives.
LifeChurch.tv Small groups
The small group section often comprises of “just” a dvd that you can use. The messages or series tend to last for 3-4 weeks and are intended to be used within smaller groups of people.
The worship section has a great selection of worship videos. There were 24 different videos available at the time of this review with each video including 4 songs. The quality of songs is impressive with musicians such as Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche, Lincoln Brewster, David Crowder and Charlie Hall.
As well as the resources already mentioned that will be used within various groups, there are also various tools that can be used for training either yourself or others. The training covers areas such as youth groups, small groups, mission, financial and ministry. These tend to be more text based than the other resources.
And that is it for the resources section of LifeChurch.tv! What else could you want though, the breadth and quality of free products available is astonishing.
