Helpful Source for Guidance During COVID-19

 


During the COVID-19 pandemic, many church pastors and congregants find themselves in need of guidance in thorny matters like church reopening, maintaining health during a pandemic, and helping others during these difficult times. Here's one source we can turn to from Wheaton College, the Humanitarian Disaster Institute. They have a wide range of resources ready to help. You may reach out to the Institute through this link: https://www.wheaton.edu/academics/academic-centers/humanitarian-disaster-institute/

New Live Stream Equipment, Meet the Mic


 I hope you are all having a blessed week. When we started 2020, my wife and I had no idea we'd be learning the ins and outs of producing and delivering a live-stream worship service. The faithful old computer we were working with couldn't handle the strain (it wasn't designed for the job) and we had to pick up a new model that could. Then we received an external camera to improve the visuals. Now we have a new external mic to improve our clarity, especially for those with hearing issues. Who knows where the rest of 2020 will take us. We fervently hope this will help make your worship experience more meaningful. Peace, Pastor Jeff
