Pandemic Religion: A Digital Archive

Reverend

Narrative or description

We started livestreaming our worship on Facebook (photo with pianist) from the sanctuary (3 or 4 of us in attendance), and doing our Bible studies, prayer meetings and other meetings on Zoom (Zoom photo).

We've found a HUGE increase in attendance, and connections every Sunday with people who used to be just Christmas/Easter worshipers. Giving has actually increased, and people are doing a great job of staying connected in so many ways. It's been eye-opening. We've definitely learned that we'll continue livestreaming after the pandemic, and probably should have been doing it all along.
