WILLMAR - The church is an age-old institution with strong roots in traditional practices. Perhaps because of its ancient origins, many people might not associate the church with modern advancements in technology or with social networking trends, such as Facebook.

But several churches in the Willmar area don't see that as the case. In fact, instead of dismissing technology, they're using it as an opportunity to engage with their members in a more direct, informal way.
