If you are new to Twitter and worried about the basics of tweet etiquette, fear not. God is on your side.

Jackson's Westwinds Church, 1000 Robinson Road, was featured in Time magazine earlier this month in an article about the new trend of Twittering in church.

According to the magazine, church leaders across the country have begun employing the social-networking tool to make Sunday services more enjoyable and facilitate pew-to-pew (and peer-to-peer) connections via technology.

Westwinds pastors John Voelz and David McDonald said in the magazine they have about 150 Twitter users in their 900-adult member church.

Tweets can be about anything, and on "Twitter Sundays" the messages are broadcast on a large video screens in the church.
