Choosing the right format for your church

If you currently livestream: The YouTube sermon links will be best for those using Zoom, Facebook Live or YouTube Live. To show these video, you will need to screen share during your live service. In order to screen share on Facebook Live or YouTube Live, you will need to record on zoom and link that live feed to your streaming platform. YouTube links can also be shared with your congregation as a standalone sermon video.

If you pre-record your video or audio worship service: Download the video or audio files from Dropbox and edit the clip into your service. If you have not edited video clips together for your services before, this can easily be done on Apple products using iMovie or on PC products using various programs. If you post audio files of sermons on your website, you can download from this folder and upload however you normally do that. 

Podcast link: If sharing the audio sermon using a link works best in your context, you can use the podcast links to do so. 

Written version: A downloadable PDF of each sermon is available for those who would prefer to share the text of these sermons to their congregation.
