  • 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
  • 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.
