ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR ONLINE FOLKS
4/4 Happy Resurrection Sunday! It may not have been evident on the livestream, but we have two new TV screens in the sanctuary to eventually replace the old projector and screen we have used for many years. We are still working out the kinks, but praise God, they were up and working today! If you are in the area, we hope you will drop by some Sunday and check them out!
3/10 Last minute scheduling issues caused the cancelling of the Bible Study for this week.
3/7 We had technical problems at the beginning of the service. We had a stream up, but had no sound or video to put on it. By the grace of God, we got things working again around the time of the offering. The video from this week starts there and includes the entire sermon.
3/4 The Bible Study from Feb 24 was finally uploaded into the Sermons Archive, as well as the Bible Study from March 3. Apologies for the delay.
1/12 We are celebrating 7 years of streaming online! Can you believe it? 7 years ago we began streaming and almost all the recordings can be reviewed in the Sermons page! The first 6 years were lower quality, but as the Covid restrictions descended, we upgraded to a 720p video with much clearer audio! Check out years of sermons and worship on our Sermons page.
1/3 We are reading the Book of Acts in January as a church. We are reading sequentially starting with Acts chapter 1 on Monday January 4. Pastor is asking that we read one chapter a day. If you want to read more, by all means, read more! But let's read the Book of Acts together at the start of this year!
1/2 As we have done for several years, we will have a congregational fast this month. Join us January 11 through January 31 as we lay down something in a fast before the Lord. For some, it might be a Daniel Fast (no meats, no sweets). For others, it might be one meal a day. Or two. Or television. Or social media. You decide. Whatever it is, use the time freed up to read the Word and pray. Focus on growing closer to the Lord in the year ahead!
1/1/2021 We wish you all a Happy New Year!
12/23 Our Wednesday evening Bible Studies are on hiatus until February 3 due to the Christmas and winter schedules of many of our congregants. Join us again in February, either online in the Fellowship Room, or in-person in the sanctuary at church.
12/5 The Thanksgiving Project is complete! See the results on the Archive page and share it with your friends on social media!
11/29 Change of plan on the Christmas Banquet: given the restrictions on gatherings for Montgomery County and the concerns of our congregants, we are not having a banquet this year. However, on Sunday 12/6, we will still have fun after the service. There will be giveaways, prizes, singing, and more! Join us on 12/6!
11/19 If you want to submit your statement of thanks to the Thanksgiving Project, you can either put it in the Chat Box during the live service and mark it "My thanksgiving:" or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Keep them short if you can (one sentence is great). If you have a lot to be thankful for, submit more than one! You can choose to include your name in the text or just leave it as is; your choice.
11/19 We are happy to announce that copies of the bulletin are now available to our online visitors. They can be found on this page (below), as well as the Virtual Church Live page.
11/11 Bible Study was cancelled due to the bandwidth issue (we expected several people to join online that evening), so there is no video in the archives.
11/08 We ran into bandwidth problems with our Internet Service Provider. As a result, people trying to watch online didn't get an acceptable stream to watch. During the week, we contacted Comcast and the problem was corrected. Our service on 11/15 streamed without a hitch, so if you were put off by the problems, fear not; they've been remedied! We did manage to record Pastor's sermon locally, and we uploaded it to the archives.
11/04 We forgot to post the video for the Bible Study in the archives. Sorry about that. It was posted on 11/19.
