Join us ONLINE | Sundays at 10am
(Catch up on Past Gatherings HERE)
How live is "live"?
While our gathering is pre-recorded, it streams for everyone "live" at 10am. This allows us to participate/interact together similar to how we would during any other Sunday Gathering at Whatcom Foursquare.
Can I just watch this whenever I want?
Our gathering streams at 10am and is not "on-demand." Also, it isn't able to be paused.
Wait... no "pause"? Are you sure?
Yep, we're sure. Because of where the video comes from, it will seem like you will be able to hit a "pause" button. However, in reality, the video keeps streaming and when you "un-pause" it will jump to where it is currently at in the stream.
Hmm... what's the point of that?
The reason for this is to create a similar experience to any other Sunday gathering - we are all in this together... at 10am... no pausing.
I followed the link a few minutes early and nothing was happening - am I doing it right?
Rest assured, you are good to go. Basically, the "chat" area opens 10 minutes before our gathering (and stays open 10 minutes after it is over) and there will be some music and slides starting a couple minutes before we kick things off at 10am!
What's all this about chatting? Am I on video? Am I getting signed up for something?
Chatting is how we get to interact. Similarly, it how you can request prayer during the live gathering. You will not be on video and you are not signing up for anything, but you will be asked to create a "nickname." This is just to identify you in the chat area so it will work best to have if it isn't too obscure - ha! We are excited for this chat feature and to be able to be "together!"
I was a few minutes late and missed the beginning... can I start from the beginning?
Just like any other Sunday gathering, you can join at any time. However, similar to any other Sunday morning you will get to participate from the time you join going forward.
Is this going to be available to watch/share after the live gathering?
Yes, we are planning to make it available through our website sometime after the live gathering. This is a great way to catch up on anything that was missed or to share it with others.
Help! It seems like things might've crashed! What do I do?
While this most likely won't happen (prayers appreciated), if it does happen, the video for this morning's gathering can be found HERE.
