The Computer Ministry was started over twenty years ago to provide digital support and computer literacy to members, ministries and the community. A key partnership of the ministry is the Tech Goes Home Project which provides 15 hours of computer training to registered students, who then develop and present their projects using tools and devices from the class. Upon completion, students receive a Chromebook for a nominal fee. This project is important because it helps to bridge the digital divide among seniors "Baby Boomers" and the underserved communities. Especially during the pandemic, it is important that the community is able to connect virtually for worship services, school, medical appointments, shopping etc..

“As a member of the Computer Ministry, working with the Tech Goes Home Project offers a meaningful opportunity to help our members and the community. The program develops computer literacy skills that bridge the digital divide while providing essential tools for navigating an increasingly virtual environment. Whether accessing online resources, checking emails or viewing live streamed services, seeing the positive responses of students gaining new skills using their new devices is rewarding.”
