This week, we made the decision to forego in-person activities at the church due to the spread of COVID-19. In an effort to keep our church family informed of events, and to continue to deliver God’s word, we are embarking on a new journey. We are planning to utilize social media and online streaming technologies to deliver the message so that our flock can continue to be fed the Word of God while practicing ‘Social Distancing.’ We realize that not all of our members will be able to utilize these tools, and we are making efforts to ensure we can deliver the messages to those who are unable to receive them using these new methods.
In our toolbelt, we have options for using social media via Facebook and Twitter, video streaming via Facebook Live and YouTube, our new Realm app, mail/email, and of course recorded CDs or DVDs. Our web page is the central information source to get to any/all of these methods. You can click on the social media icons above the main picture, or you can click on the ‘About Us’ menu to see links to each of the resources. Please bear with us as we start using these new methods. Content will probably start out slowly, but will gradually build as we learn how to use the tools we have at hand.
Below are instructions on how to get to each of the resources:
You can go to your Twitter app on your phone or tablet, or go to https://www.twitter.com and login. Search for @MBCHuntsville and click ‘Follow’ so that you can see when we post new information. You can also go directly to our Twitter page by clicking on the Twitter social media icon from our web page, or from the About Us menu, click on ‘MBC on Twitter.’
Twitter will be used for sending quick updates, as well as some additional thoughts from Marty
Facebook: mbchsv or https://facebook.com/mbchsv
You can go to your Facebook app on your phone or tablet, or go to https://www.facebook.com and login. Search for mbchsv and click on the result for Morningside Baptist Church (it has a picture of our church). Click on ‘Like’ and now you’ll see posts from the church. You can also go directly to our Facebook page by clicking on the Facebook social media icon from our web page, or from the About Us menu, click on ‘MBC on Facebook.’
Facebook will be used for posting updates, posting information from Marty, and Live streaming of our services (as applicable).
You can go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO671vmgTsSGtLlccjrnpNg/ in your web browser. Click on ‘Subscribe’ and now you’ll see new videos from the church. You can also go directly to our YouTube page by clicking on the YouTube social media icon from our web page, or from the About Us menu, click on ‘MBC on YouTube.’
YouTube will be used for streaming our services and as a library of all of our videos that can be accessed after the service/message has been produced and posted.
