Important Message for Leaders
Hello, Team! You've received the text with a link to this page because you are a leader at AWC — and we need your help as we move to online church for the coming weeks!
Our “Live” online church experience very intentionally is going to look different than our online sermons have in the past. In the past, our online sermons have simply been recordings of what happened on the platform for people who weren't able to be there so they could catch at a later date.
But in this new reality, our online experience at 10am on Sundays on Facebook IS our worship gathering. So all of the interactions and connections that typically happen in our sanctuary as we gather there need to happen online as we gather here.
We want to…
This is where all of you leaders come in: We need you to participate with dialog in the comments, ask questions, and keep the conversations going!
Here's the direct link to the Facebook Premiere:

Because of a sometimes glitchy Internet connection at the church, Mark and Adam are pre-recording the music and message for Sunday. It is scheduled to "go live" Sunday at 10am. A Facebook Premiere offers all of the same opportunities to interact with one another.
3 Ways to Invite People Using Facebook
**IF Something Goes Wrong**
We have seen reports this week that Facebook is being stretched to its limits with everyone being home and online. On Sunday, THOUSANDS of churches will be gathering live on Facebook (which is FANTASTIC to see Jesus' message of hope getting out to people this way!) But, if something goes wrong and we need to direct people to another platform, send them to our site here at www.AlbionWes.org/live.
We will have the video available on that page along with links to watch it on Vimeo or YouTube.
We’re Stretching Ourselves!
This is a whole new way for us to gather, worship and interact with God’s Word and it’s going to take some getting used to! It might even feel a little uncomfortable.
But people need connection. If we didn’t need human interaction, we could just choose a great TV preacher to listen to and call it good.
But church is about following Jesus, walking together with others and learning how to put his way into practice — together. I’m so thankful for our digital platforms that allow us to still “gather” and be the church!
As leaders at AWC, thank you for helping us as we navigate this new territory of online church!
