How Can You Serve Those Who Can’t (Or Won’t) Come To Church?

Each week you look around the room, and you know instantly who’s missing. The McDaniel’s aren’t here, but they hardly ever show up. On the other hand, you don’t see the Whites, and they usually sit in the third row. Maybe they caught that stomach virus that’s going around. And what about that neighbor you invited, Janet? She keeps saying she watches sermons on your website, and you keep inviting her, but she never seems to actually show up.

It’s estimated that 2%-7% of your congregation will be out sick on any given week. For a congregation of 300 that’s nearly two dozen people who can’t make it to service. That doesn’t even include the shut-ins or disabled who can’t make it even though they would love to.

Others might just see some empty seats, but you know who’s missing. You know their names. You carry them on your heart. And you want to give them as many options as possible for hearing the Word.

Just because your people are stuck at home doesn’t mean they can’t benefit from the means of Grace. Livestreaming brings your service to your people, live, all with just a tap.

In the past Livestreams were expensive to setup and produce, with thousands of dollars of equipment and hefty monthly fees required just to get started.

With the new Livestream platform all of that changes. To get started you can just download the app, set your iPhone on your podium, tap “Go Live”, and start your sermon. You don’t even need a fast internet connection. Of course, if you want to take it up a notch, many other hardware configurations are supported, like taking an audio feed right from your soundboard.

If you’ve been on the fence about live streaming, now is a great time to give it a try. The Livestream platform has a 40 day free trial — you don’t even need a credit card to get started.

Those empty seats don’t have to mean empty hearts.
