Watching the Church Services

We have recently made a change to how our church services are post on our website.  You may have noticed that when you click on the service that you want to watch (on the "Sermons and Videos" page), the service will play on YouTube.  Hopefully the service will play better for you this way.  It also enables us to keep more videos on our website longer.  You can also still find our services on Facebook.

How to watch the sermon video?

Hey everyone,
I have had many questions about how to watch the sermon videos and questions on why does the video pause several times while watching. The reason is your computer is playing the video faster than your computer can load it. So, to watch the entire video without a pause allow your computer to load the video and how to do that is just keep the video on pause. The line under neath the video with  a white dot will become darkened. When the entire line has become dark that means the video is loaded. Depending on how fast your internet connection is will determine how long the video will take to load. If you have any other questions please contact Pastor or Cody McLean and we will be glad to help you.


Hope everyone has a great day!
