Today´s society is overwhelming with new technology and expressions of new media outlets.Forums, podcasts, easy internet access, videoblogs etc. is a new part of how people in generalare consuming media, searching for information and finding community. Previous studies haveshown that religious groups tend to use and interact with digital media in other ways than othersocial groups in the society. Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine how members of twocongregations in Umeå interact and use different forms of digital media in relation to theirreligious offline-community. Four people agreed to be interviewed and be a part of this studyand semi structured interviews were made.The results was analyzed in relation to theories about how religious communities traditionallyhas used and interacted new forms of digital media. Also, theories about how traditional mediaoutlets changes forms and how people tend to use them was used for analyzing the finding. Theoutcome of those interviews revealed that there is a slight variation in how digital media isconceived and used in these religious communities, but the general view is that the offlinecommunityis a central part of their religious life. The opportunities that, for example religiousteaching online offers is viewed as only complementary to the teachings and other rituals thatoccur in the offline-community.
