The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

Today at Good Shepherd we offer our latest Sunday of online offerings during this public health crisis.

On the schedule:

  • 10:30 am – Ante Communion with Mtr. Michele, Deacon Janice, and homily by Fr. Robert on Facebook Premiere and YouTube Premiere and here on this page
  • 11:15 am – Lectionary Bible Study with Fr. Robert and Mtr. Michele via Zoom (not livestreamed). If you do not already have the Zoom information, email Sandra
  • 11:30 am – Music for Sunday with John Wigal and guests; published to Facebook

The Ante Communion service bulletin can be downloaded by clicking here.

Where to watch

Ante Communion will be streamed to both our our Facebook page and YouTube channel; click here to go directly to the service’s stream on YouTube.  The service will also be available at the top of our Church Today page on our website once the stream has begun.

The easiest way to watch all livestreams and videos on Facebook is by clicking here.  You do not need a Facebook account to tune in; simply click the link and watch – and don’t forget to unmute the video feed by clicking on the speaker icon in the lower righthand corner of the video.

When a live video is playing on this page, it will be under the Happening Now heading.

If you do not see a live video playing, refresh your browser tab or window.  Not sure what the refresh button looks like? Look for the right-pointing circular arrow button near the top of your screen.  It will look something like this:  

Remember, videos and streams on the homepage of our Facebook page appear under the pinned posts in our Posts block – you may have to scroll down the page a bit!

In order to add your comments to the chat on YouTube’s website, you must have a Google/Gmail account, however, you do not need an account to view the stream or any of our videos on our YouTube channel or on our website.

Because this week’s service is pre-recorded, we will not be able to use the phone-in feature this week.  This will return when we begin livestreaming from the church in August.

Please email Sandra your feedback after the service. We want to ensure that we can all worship together on Sunday with minimal interference from technology.
