An Arizona church is encouraging congregants to use social media. Not just in their personal time, but during service.

“We feel like if they can take action in the moment, it’s much more impactful for them and for the person they are interacting with,” Lead Pastor Ted Baird told Fox 2 Now in St. Louis.

Church members relish the chance to take advantage of the rule, one that isn’t shared among many churches across the country. “I love it and think everybody should do it. It’s the way we connect these days,” said Barbi Nix, a church member.

Of course, they’re being pushed to spread the Word in their social media interactions, but still, some might have a problem with a person tweeting and Facebooking during the sermon.

So how do you feel? Is this practice OK in your opinion?
