AB SATURDAY. JANUARY 27, 1996 RELIGION THE SALINA JOURNAL T CYBERSPACE WORSHIP Ghurch ministers on Internet Web presence helps members stay in touch without leaving home By The Associated Press URBANA, 111. — When the Rev. Paul Swartz came to St. Matthew Lutheran Church seven years ago, the church bulletin was produced with typewriters and mimeograph machines. Now his congregation's happenings are available around the globe on the World Wide Web, the booming portion of the Internet that lets users see pictures, read text and hear recordings. "We've got to be able to reach people where they are, not where we think they ought to be," Swartz says. "I see the, church recapturing an earlier sense of what we're here for, a larger sense of community." For St. Matthew Lutheran and a growing number of churches, community outreach now includes missions to cyberspace. The church's presence on the Internet is not only a way to bring in new, technology-savvy members, but also to allow congregation members easy access to a church community without leaving home. The trend is particularly visible in the twin cities of Urbana and Champaign, home to the University of Illinois, the National Center for Supercomput- ing Applications, a community computer network called Prairienet and thousands of online computerphiles. More than a dozen churches or religious organizations in the community of about 100,000 have Web pages, and more are jumping on the Internet as the weeks go by. "This is never going to replace all the other things churches will do, but as long as it's around, we can use it as another tool to reach out," said Ryan Neavill, who administers the Web site for the First United Methodist Church in Champaign. Neavill approached church leaders about starting a Web site when he joined the church last fall, and has operated the site since it went on-line in December.

And God still looks for people who will "stand in the gap" and build up the wall on which He can build His kingdom. He looks for good people, people of vision, those who will not sell their souls for a mess of potage, nor sacrifice their birthrights on the altar of expediency in the marketplace. Pompey, Roman general and statesman, put it: "It is a small matter that I should move forward and die. It is too great a matter that I should take one step backward and live." Following the bloody years of the Civil War, the name and character of Gen. Robert E. Lee never faltered nor waivered. This great general stood taller in defeat than most generals ever stood in victory. One day a group of men approached him about heading a business enterprise of questionable nature. They offered him $50,000. "You will have to do nothing. All we want is the use of your name," they told him. Gen. Lee stood tall behind his desk. "Sirs, my name is the heritage of my parents. It is all I have, and it is not for sale." The gaps are all around us. People, men and women, go and stand!

Hojiday Inn of Salina Kevin Williams & Employees Both your FAITH and your CHURCH GROW through REGULAR CHURCH ATTENDANCE Suitable helpers Women's worship group aims to pray for U.S., men By CAROL LICHTI The Salina Journal After attending a conference last year, Bev Schmutz, a single mother, knew she had found what she was looking for. The group: Suitable Helpers, a nondenomina- tiohal ministry that seeks to help Women understand God's role for them through praise, Bible study and prayer. Schmutz admits she initially was a little put off by the group's name. "I wondered about it because I am not married," she said. Suitable Helpers, headquartered in Littleton, Colo., is similar to Promise Keepers, a religious organization that helps men honor God and be the spiritual leaders of their household, said Donna Burwell, ministry coordinator for Emmanuel Church in Abilene. Schmutz, along with officials at Emmanuel, which she attends, and leaders of other churches in Abilene and across the state, are organizing a conference for Suitable Helpers.

Schniutz expects 500 to 800 women from Kansas and as far away as Michigan and California to attend. f After the conference, the women will continue to meet, but in smaller prayer groups of four to six in their home churches or communities. Schmutz said she knew about Promise Keepers and desired something comparable for women. "I couldn't see thousands of women going to a football stadium and cheering the- way men do," she said. Through talks with her pastor at Emmanuel, she found Suitable Helpers and attended a national conference. "It is a call for women to pray for the nation and the men in their lives, whether they be husbands, uncles, fathers, sons or brothers," she said. It does not advocate that women be subservient to men, she said, but that they all be servants to God and Jesus. "We should be 'suitable helpers' to Jesus Christ," she said. "There. should not be a struggle over who . is in charge. God is in charge and • we should work to support one an- • other. Men should be what they., were called to be and women ' should be what they were called to- be." Her belief is based on her own struggle as a single mother and a philosophy that grew out of the women's movement that women- had to be "super women," she said. Women shouldn't necessarily; have to have a career, family and be the spiritual leader in the' home. "We cannot be everything to everybody," Schmutz said. That doesn't mean women can't work outside the home, she. said. "They should never be limited, but they should not be forced to do everything," she said.
