We are Locked Down but not Locked Out!

With Governor Hogan's declaration that all Marylanders need to stay in place except for essential services, you might think that our church services are finished for the duration. Well, the Drive-In Church may go away for the moment, but the Virtual Church is still alive and kicking!

We have plans in place to stream our Virtual Church service this and every Sunday during this lockdown, even without going to our church building! Please join us again at 10:30 AM EDT this Sunday for Virtual Church. And note that video of the service will be posted in the Service Archives, generally within… read more

We have plans in place to stream our Virtual Church service this and every Sunday during this lockdown, even without going to our church building! Please join us again at 10:30 AM EDT this Sunday for Virtual Church. And note that video of the service will be posted in the Service Archives, generally within 24 hours of the end of the service. You can actually find YEARS of our services available on-demand right now on the Virtual Church page.

So plan to join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM for another Virtual Church service! Let's worship the Lord together!

Virtual Church and Drive-In Church!

Last week, we introduced Virtual Church -- a way that we can join together to workshop the Lord over the Internet. This week, we added Drive-In Church! Folks in the area can now park in the church parking lot and listen to the service on their car radios. Since everyone stays in their vehicles, this meets the mandate for social distancing, yet allows people to see and wave to one another. Simply tune your radio to 106.1 FM and listen to the service. You can even honk "Amen!" back to Pastor while she preaches!

So join us next week -- either via Drive-In or the Virtual Church! There's no need to miss out on church just because we can't gather in groups. And if you're someone whose church has closed for the duration, please feel free to make this your church home until the current conditions pass (or longer, if you wish). We are blessed to be able to offer these alternative services when so many churches don't have the technology to do likewise, so please join us!

Coronavirus and the Virtual Church

This is a crazy time to be alive! But it's a time to explore new ideas in bringing the gospel to people.

With the government restrictions regarding the Coronavirus, we have had to cancel our normal in-person church meetings and rely solely on our online gathering instead. We do have experience in this area. If you go to the Sermons page, your will note that we have YEARS of church services recorded and available at the click of a button. Our technology isn't bleeding edge, but for years we have streamed our services and recorded them for replay later from our… read more

This is a crazy time to be alive! But it's a time to explore new ideas in bringing the gospel to people.

With the government restrictions regarding the Coronavirus, we have had to cancel our normal in-person church meetings and rely solely on our online gathering instead. We do have experience in this area. If you go to the Sermons page, your will note that we have YEARS of church services recorded and available at the click of a button. Our technology isn't bleeding edge, but for years we have streamed our services and recorded them for replay later from our website.

Starting Sunday, March 22, we will be focusing on Virtual Church -- a Sunday morning broadcast into the homes of not only our congregation, but anyone in the world who chooses to join us on the Internet. Our service will be available from this website, from the Christian World Media website (our streaming provider), and from our Roku channel (see the bottom of our Virtual Church page for the link to install it on your Roku). In addition, the sermon portion will be broadcast from our Facebook page as well (by Facebook rules, we can't include the recorded music during worship).

Although we know what it takes to stream our live services, this will be a new experience for us as we focus on the broadcast, instead of on the congregation in the building. We'll be learning as we go, so give us a little grace to improve things over time. We're more than happy to listen to constructive criticism as well, so leave us comments here or in the Chat Box during the service.

We're glad you're here, and we hope you will stay with us as we learn to do this better each week! Join us Sundays as we worship the Lord!
