Media Ministry

Outreach through Media Ministry

Plans are underway to enhance and improve our church’s outreach through Media Ministry. With a debt of gratitude to Andi Foster and others who have helped us reach our members and the world during this time of social distancing we are now taking additional steps forward.

The plan is to move from a cellphone mounted on a tripod in the middle of the aisle in the middle of the church to cameras which are mounted in appropriate ways and places. This will allow us to free up the pathways as well as to capture worship services in enhanced ways.

We will locate new equipment in the balcony allowing us to gather the images and combine them with lyrics and liturgy to help the online viewer move from being a spectator to being actively engaged in worship. We are forming a team to handle all the audiovisual needs of the church. Again, we thank EVERYONE who is currently serving the church from “The Balcony.” This “Balcony Team” will oversee the following three areas: Sound, PowerPoint and Video. These are all very important aspects and elements of our worship and our outreach ministry. Our team needs members who will be committed and flexible, willing to learn to be cross trained. If you feel that you can be a part of this important team, please give the church office a call. This very important ministry affects every worship service attendee, those present and those present online.

Please contact Rev. Malcolm Monroe or Kelli at the church office at (936) 598-2707 for details on how you can join the First UMC Media Team!
