As I write this, Wallace and I are watching the snow come down outside my window. It looks beautiful but it is heavy. For fun, I measured how deep the snow is where my garden beds are. Pete does blow the snow to that area, but still, it’s a solid 4ft tall. Ouch. I have a feeling that pile will be there past Easter!
I want to remind you that this Sunday, we will begin livestreaming our worship services. What does this mean? This Sunday, at 10 a.m., a few of us will be in the sanctuary to lead worship. Our service will be “live” on our YouTube Channel. You can watch the service in real-time, or later when you are able. The service will start at 10 a.m. with the prelude.
After the service, we will gather for fellowship via Zoom.
I imagine there will be some glitches. But to avoid a few possible problems, we would like to share:
1.A copy of our worship service liturgy is HERE (click). It will help you follow the service better, and the liturgy also includes the music for our hymns.
2.You can find our YouTube Channel HERE (click). We suggest you go to the YouTube Channel about 9:55 a.m. and refresh the page until you see the livestreaming video.
Eventually, we hope to live stream directly to Facebook AND YouTube every Sunday at 10 a.m.—and we will continue to do this even after we return to the sanctuary full time. We also hope to get some software that allows us to add text to the bottom of the screen while we live stream. But for this Sunday, we are simply glad to finally gather as a staff to lead worship in our sanctuary. On February 14, we will celebrate communion, too.
I will miss your seeing faces, though. Zoom allows me to see the smiles at my bad jokes, the raised eyebrows when I say something that you may not agree with, and the pets that roam your homes. But that is why we will still gather in the Zoom room after the service, to keep that personal connection available. The link to the Zoom is below.
Blessings to you and your loved ones,
I am off to go shovel more snow!
