How to watch the service online (see YouTube video below)

  • We are livestreaming our services every Saturday at 5:00 p.m. ¬†That means you can watch it live, as it happens in real time or you can watch it anytime afterward because the recording remains on YouTube. ¬†If you arrive while the service is still going, you can click on the far left of the red "time" bar at the bottom to start the service from the beginning.

  • Services from previous weeks are archived and viewable on our YouTube channel.

We're sorry!  Tonight's audio simply didn't work.  We'll attempt to stream the service again tomorrow morning at 8am.
