To highlight Jason’s point - step away and come back if you need to, we’ll send out the recording. We will have a live Q&A at the end of this webinar (around 12:15) if you want to take part. We’ll also have a Zoom follow up with Jason in about a month - will send you all the date of that when we schedule it.

Joann Dominguez

Mary Spradlin
01:30:35
I like the “next steps” at the end of worship - ways to live into what worship just emphasized. But I’m going to name it: Are they still watching online? I am sure we have more people at the beginning of the service than the end.

When getting internet packages for the church they always advertise the great download speeds. One will want to inquire as to the upload speeds with the Internet Service Provider as it isn’t always readily available.

We take prayer requests by text to a google number, real time but more private
Kim Long

I love these ideas! But I can’t imagine asking my tired staff and volunteers to come in on another day to pre-record. All of my staff and volunteers have full-time jobs elsewhere Something I will have to spend time thinking about.
Sheila Fiorella
01:42:31
Our folks are doing a great job of engaging with one another and praying for those concerns in real time.
Clint Jones

First United Methodist Church Cleburne is an awesome church to study how prayer can invigorate a congregation. Wonderful ministry.

(funny, not funny) - members jumping on last week's service, commenting, and staying the whole service.
Jarrod Johnston
01:47:06
We have way more people that attend Family Style on Saturday night AND Sunday morning traditional worship online. It’s been very cool to witness and create connectional community.
Clint Jones
01:47:27
Something I have thought about is thinking that a sermon may touch a heart six years from now when I am at a different church but providing a consistent contact method should they wish to receive Christ or request prayer.
Clint Jones
01:47:56
Leaving a generic email from a church like info@coutsumc.org
John Woodard
01:48:52
Already do this!
FUMC Hico

We spend 5 minutes pre-service saying hi to each other, online and in-person to connect them together
Barbara Dunlap

We have lots of participation in the chat. But I also invite them to welcome one another each week. And I everyone who posts by name. (I'm exclusively online, not in the worship service other than a brief video.)
