Engaging in Online Worship
March 17, 2020
I know this is different for all of us. God is going to stretch us during this time. I want to give us some steps to help us along this road of online worship.
We will have links that you will be able to click before the service and after the service to help guide your family in discussion. We do realize that there may be some of you doing these discussion guides alone, so we encourage you to reach out to someone, maybe your small group leader, or if you aren’t active in our church give us a shout, we’d love to help.
AW Tozer once said “A scared world needs a fearless church.” The church isn’t a building, the church is built upon God in relation to people. Remember to be faithful to God and your church, in giving, in sharing, in prayer.
So here we go… How to be engaged in online worship.
Worship with Others
This is a time of community, at your own house. Take pics of your family and post them during this time of online church.
Consider reaching out to your neighbors in advance and simply say, “I am broadcasting my church’s service, either on an iPad, computer, tv, or your phone and I’d love for you to join.”
Prepare Yourself for Worship
Yes we know this is different for you. We know that this is uncharted waters and undiscovered territory. Let’s do this. Prepare yourself through prayer. Pray God would stretch you during this time. Before our livestream, pray. During our livestream, pray. After your livestream, pray.
Last Sunday during the Blount’s sending service, I loved the “Watching” posts. Give each other shoutouts and communication. Feel free to ask questions and be prepared for us to respond.. Talk about it. Share, SHARE, SHARE the post!
Celebrate the Love of Jesus / Express the Love of Jesus / Let Go
Fathers, dads, grandpas, I am calling on you. Engage your family in worship. If you are a dad and you are watching this video, I want you to set the lead. Celebrate Jesus with your family. They are watching you to see how serious you are during this online worship experience. Express the love of Jesus with your family. Make much of Jesus during this time. Let go and let God. I understand there’s a lot of uncertainty going on in our world, that makes for the perfect time to worship the Lord.
Again, we do realize that there may be some of you doing these discussion guides alone, so we encourage you to reach out to someone, maybe your small group leader, or if you aren’t active in our church give us a shout, we’d love to help.
We love you FBCER Family.
