Hello from Pastor Howard
I wanted to give everyone an update as to the state of Our Fellowship and the process we have begun to manage these crazy times. As you know we cancelled live church Sunday and here is the reason: with this virus and not knowing how serious it really is, it has been decided that we should error on the side of safety. If anything happened to anyone, it would be terrible, so the risk was removed for a short time. I personally think we will all be just fine, but we can’t afford to be wrong here.
Here is the temporary procedure: we learned how to live stream the services and bought a media streaming licence. The equipment we purchased is up and running although we still need a little practice to perfect it. We did post a message Sunday although I was a nervous wreck and did a 30-minute sermon in 13 minutes… wow! Everyone there laughed at me and commented that it was easy to get the sermon shortened they just had to find the right motivation.
Going Forward -
We will send a list of the 3 worship songs all you need do is click on the link and the song will play in Youtube. Begin at 7:10 and you will finish in time to see and hear the sermon live on our Youtube channel. See section below for details on how to access.
We will broadcast the worship live on the Our Fellowship channel followed by announcements and the sermon. Testimonies and Corporate prayer can be texted or entered in the comment box on the Our Fellowship channel page on the right. They will be read live after the sermon. Please note, it takes a few seconds for the updates to populate.
Instructions to access Live Stream -
Direct URL for Youtube chanel: www.youtube.com/ourfellowshipcc and select the live video.
You may also reach the Our Fellowship Youtube channel by navigating to www.ourfellowshipcc.org and in the upper right corner you will see an icon for Youtube. Select the icon and our channel page will open in a new tab. You will see a list of videos and will notice one of them indicates “Live.” This is the live stream. Simply select it.
We will also be posting a direct link on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ourfellowshipcc) to the Youtube live stream.
If you need help making all this work call me and I will come and teach you as it is super easy and fun.
Also, on the Our Fellowship (www.ourfellowshipcc.org) website is the tab for Tithes and Offerings (www.ourfellowshipcc.org/give). If you help with this just ask and I, or someone, will help you as this is extremely important the Church.
Please stick together through this difficult time as I don’t want to lose any more church family. We should be back in 2 to 4 weeks and we will continue streaming the services live going forward.
Love you all and blessings,
PS – If you need anything, just call.
