A Prodigal Blessing

On Sunday, September 27th, we will be premiering our online worship service at 9:00 a.m. on our Youtube Channel (you can click on the video above). This means we can watch our prerecorded worship service together, live, and will have the opportunity to chat with each other on Youtube, as well. You will need to go to our Youtube channel a few minutes prior to 9:00 a.m. and just as you would normally see a Sunday worship service video, you will find the “premiere” video. Click on that video and it will begin at 9:00 a.m. After the premiere, it will be available to watch at anytime.
