For the last several weeks we have had the ability to gather together for worship, how refreshing and encouraging our ‘gathered’ worship has been! We are still experiencing some hiccups as we get our streaming issues sorted out, but just having the ability to gather for fellowship and corporate worship has been a tremendous blessing.
For those that are still being very cautious about emerging from the restrictions, we will continue to work on our streaming issues and work at solving the problems that we’ve encountered. In fact, we have an A/V specialist coming out tomorrow morning to review our setup and let us know what recommendations he has for eliminating our troubles and presenting a clean and functional stream for those that tune in.
Because the board believes that maintaining the streaming service is important, even after all restrictions have been lifted, we are committed to providing the best online experience that we can. Pray that Rick will be able to identify any weaknesses in our setup and recommend solutions that will not only clean up our efforts but will allow us to build God’s Kingdom on the digital platform.
While I am grateful for God’s faithfulness through these days, I will not complain if we do not see such a chaotic time again. Now, perhaps more than ever, we need to be praying for God’s presence and his peace. Now is the time to seek healing and revival for ourselves and our nation. Now is the time to seek to be like the men of Issachar, who Scripture says “understood the the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take” (1 Chronicles 12:32).
***Tonight will be the last Wednesday that we try to do a hybrid online/in-person Bible study. Short of investing in microphones for every in-person attender, we have not been able to sort out a way to ensure that everyone can clearly hear all facets of the discussion. Check the church’s private FB group for the Zoom ID and password for tonight’s meeting.***
