Walker Chapel United Methodist Church

The club needs a name and a logo!  "Computer Club" is easy to understand but a bit boring.  Can you suggest a name and/or a logo???  Email your ideas to us!

Computer Club

The chapel has a huge computer system that is ours to share and enjoy with our youths.  The Computer Club will be an integral part of our Youth Education Program as we assist our youth in preparing for their place in the world.

The club is for youths for 10+ and up.  Younger members will create their own website pages, develop the art work of pictures and images, and compose the content “in their own words”.  Club website masters will work with the younger members with the focus will be on having fun with computers.  

Youths in High School want to travel behind the scenes of the website and learn about what makes a website run.  Components like style sheets, templates, html, editors, JavaScript, authentication, and interacting with a commercial grade relational database.  They will learn about the search engines of Google and Bing and how to optimize the website so it can easily be found by visitors.  They will learn the tools used to navigate the hundreds of pages that will be on the chapel website and how to make the website responsive to the hundreds of devices from desktop computers to smart phones.  They will be the “go to” group for any other committee or group in the church that has needs on the website such as the online plant sale, online VBS registration, photo albums, the Lay Leader’s Repository of monthly messages, and the Pastor’s Sermon Library.

As As our High School youths move on to college or industry, they are always welcome to remain connected and online.  If still in the area or during vacations they may join in club meetings of their choice and be mentors to the Junior and Senior Angels.

Parents are always welcome to join in with the Pastor, webmaster, and the Chair and members of the Youth Education Committee.  The group will join in club meetings and partake in special discussion sessions where they learn more about the technology and establish the guidance to be followed by club members from content to child safety.
