CRANBERRY TWP. — Jan 08, 2008— Since Simply Christian® re-introduced the Online Sunday School™ (OSS) in April of last year the ministry has added more than 100 individual churches! The reintroduction made the OSS available to all churches and families via its website www.SimplyChristian.org. Prior to April 2007 the OSS ministry was available primarily only through a United Methodist Conference. Today the OSS now serves churches, ministries, or families in all 50 states in the US and the following 6 countries: Australia, Canada, Malaysia, Philippines, Russia, and Switzerland.
"From our earliest days God has always placed the right people around this ministry and allowed the ministry to grow", says Marianne C. Ferrans, co-founder of Simply Christian®. "Originally, the OSS was developed to demostrate what may be posssible via a church's website. We are richly blessed to be able to serve so many churches, ministries and families and the credit is God's."
"We recently received a phone call from a pastor in Hawaii using the OSS in his small church. This pastor's comments about how the OSS is helping grow God's kingdom we very kind and rewarding. It is phone calls and emails like his that energize us and keep this ministry going. We operate month-to-month as a very small, voluntary, shared ministry trusting in God to provide the means for us to continue to make the OSS available. As recently as February 2007 we were uncertain about how long we could sustain the OSS. But every time we have prayed about the future of the OSS both the means and the meaning of this ministry are shown to us. We rely solely on contributions in order to continue to make the OSS available to everyone. As long as people continue to find the OSS beneficial, we'll do all we can to continue to make it available."
In return for providing churches and families with the OSS and free consulting, Simply Christian® asks for a small annual donation to help offset its technology expenses. The OSS is made possible only through the support of church, ministry and family partners and the support of AcquireMedia Corporation (www.aquiremedia.com). All related technology, administrative, and other day-to-day work is provided on a voluntary basis.
