Worship Service – Facebook live
February 21 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
- Words to the Cross – The Word of Contempt, This will be the beginning of our Lenten Series of messages titled Words to the Cross. I’ve participated in many services of Words from the Cross; words spoken by Jesus as he died on the cross. What we may not readily embrace is that Jesus did on a roadside, where his loved ones, but not many, gathered and passersby would have easily seen Jesus suffering. Those gathered as well as passersby said words to the cross, speaking their thoughts. Some of those words were disrespectful, others indicated the depth of inner wondering. We often call Lent a journey to the cross. During this season of Lent let’s consider the words that were spoken to the cross – to the suffering and sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf. The first work is a word of contempt as people mocked Jesus saying, “He saved others, he cannot save himself.” Those who spoke this work didn’t realize that Jesus’ mission was not to escape the cross but to bear it – for us.

If You Have Streaming Issues (choppy, freezing, etc.), Check the following:
- Make sure that your internet isn’t being used for something else.
- Remember, if someone is watching Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or another streaming video service, that is taking up your Internet bandwidth. Ditto if anyone in the household is streaming music from Spotify, YouTube, or a similar service.
- Your phone may also be using bandwidth if you’re logged into your home wireless network. And, if anyone is streaming video or music to a phone or tablet, that’s using your Internet bandwidth. If anyone is having a Zoom meeting, that is using your bandwidth.
- If you begin watching the stream and it freezes and doesn’t “catch up” in 30 seconds or so, close Facebook and re-join the stream. We’ve had folks report that this has solved their issue.
- A few of us have been “kicked off” of the Facebook stream for no apparent reason. If this happens, just go back and join in again.
- If you’re on Facebook but don’t see the live video, wait a few minutes. We start the live stream at 10:25, but there is about a 2-minute delay on the live video. If you’ve been waiting a while and still don’t see the live video, leave the page, then come back.
