Lesson Acts 2:42-47, 4:32-34a
Message Connected Together
We continue with our season of Easter and we also continue with this season of being apart from one another. My prayers continue to be with each of you in the many ways that you are dealing with this crisis. Please let me know if you have needs during this time.
This week, we’re looking at the early church – the response that Jesus’ followers had to the resurrection. Something they must have concluded was that they were all connected together, because they began to share everything in common and they worked to make sure that everyone was fed. Rather than keeping to themselves, or rallying around one new charismatic leader, they formed a community that would welcome an expanding group of people from different backgrounds and cultures.
It’s profound that during this time of “social distancing”, it becomes clear just how connected we are to one another. This Sunday we’ll spend some time reflecting on these connections.
And, since we’re celebrating those ways that we’re connected, we’d like to highlight some of the creativity and art in our community. Do you have something that you’d be able to share? Scroll down to “Staying Connected” section of this newsletter to find out more information.

Online Worship Tech Issues
We will start our live streams about 10 minutes prior to the worship start time. During this moment you will hear silence, but see rotating pictures of art that our children and youth have made to share with us. Facebook is clearly having some issues keeping up with the demands of every congregation moving to worship online. Thanks for being patient during this time of sudden transition! Here are some tips if you’re having trouble:
First, try reducing the quality level in Facebook – On the video window highlight over the “resolution” along the bottom right corner of the video player to select a different bandwidth option. This may take a moment to update within your browser.
Next, you can also try using your phone instead. Some people have had more luck using the app than connecting on their computers.
If that doesn’t work, here are some other options:
1. Try a different internet browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and also close unnecessary tabs on your browser.
2. Try updating your internet browser
3. Try restarting your computer
4. Try restarting your modem or router
5. Try updating your flash player
