If you haven’t checked out the site lately, please go there and explore. It is packed with information and photos about Swift Church and background about our denomination. I enlist the support of all elders, deacons and members of the church family in submitting news and photographs and helping to ensure the information is up to date. And if you encounter a link that’s not working correctly, please let me know right away.
I’m grateful to all who submit information and pictures. Comments and suggestions about the website are always welcomed and appreciated.
You will find the weekly sermons in text and audio, plus the Sunday announcements and the monthly newsletters of the church and preschool. You can explore the archives to find earlier material, too.
You can submit a prayer request online. However, your prayer concerns are not published on the site. There are various forms you can submit to get involved or send news and photographs or obituaries for the site. You can comment on a service or sermon, or tell what you like or love about our church. There’s a suggestion box, too. You can make donations to the church through a secure portal on the site.
The website serves to inform our church family, but it is also an outreach tool to let others know about us anywhere in the world. Some of our members say they were drawn to Swift after spending some time on the site.
