One of the significant resources that McLane Church is investing in may not even be on your radar screen...yet! It's RightNow Media, and it provides you and your small group with streaming video content from a huge library of studies from some of the top ministry leaders in our country today. What's not to like about that? Click here for a short video that explains what RNM has to offer. Here's how you get this amazing trove of content for your own personal use as well as for your small group. First, let us know that you want to subscribe (email us at firstname.lastname@example.org). We then add your email address to the RightNow Media service and they issue you an invitation to come on board. You set up an account with a password, and voila! You're in! So what's next?
You are able to access the content on your computer or mobile device 24/7...which is great for personal use. If you want to use the streaming video for your group, you will want to figure out how best to display it (TV set, projection system, etc.) for the size group you have. RNM has some great tutorial videos to help you see how best to configure your set-up based on the equipment you are using. If you want more help, just let us know in GroupLife and we'll consult to help you get up an running.
The cost of this service is FREE to all members of McLane Church who wish to access the videos. Most of these studies have an accompanying participant guide that is good for the leader to have and perhaps the group members as well. You will need to purchase these materials. There are links on RightNow Media to help you connect with a seller of the books, or you can find them via Christianbook.com or Amazon.com (or perhaps a local Christian book retailer).
If you have used RightNow Media, please share your thoughts below on what you think of this way to access video-based curriculum for your group. Let us know what you have used and how the experience was for your gang. Thanks!
