 One Great Hour of Sharing
*Collecting this special offering throughout the month of June
In Galatians, the Apostle Paul encourages followers of Jesus to generously help and care for others. Though there is great need in the world, and we can grow weary because we do not know how to help, God’s Spirit energizes and re-energizes us in every season. We can make a difference. We do make a difference. Your generosity makes all the difference. Your gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing provide immediate aid and long-term support to people experiencing hunger, thirst, disaster, or crisis around the world. The need has never been greater. The opportunity is now. It’s time to share.

Technical Notes on the Worship Livestream:
         * Recordings of the worship service are usually available on our YouTube Channel immediately after the service ends. 

In the event of livestream disruptions:
        * Try completely exiting the program/tab or app and the rejoining from the front page of the website or using this link:

       * Check the front page of our website or the FBC Facebook page. We will post information and updates there on what happened and how to rejoin.  

       *  On a brighter note: did you know that there are lots of ways to watch our church services and other videos on your TV?  If you have internet access and either a smart TV or other device connected to your TV (like Roku, Amazon Fire, TIVO, PC, etc.), you can use a built-in YouTube player to access our YouTube Channel – just look for First Baptist Church Bloomington.  Chatting during services will still require a separate computing or mobile device. Call or email the church if you’d like technical support in getting this set up.
