Live Streaming of Easter Service


Sometimes things don’t work out the way we plan. At least that is what some found out on Easter morning when circumstances kept them away from Orchard Hill’s Easter service. Whether traveling to visit family or staying home because of illness, many were able to participate in the service because of live streaming.

One user shared via Instagram, “Not really how I saw our Easter morning working out. But I am so glad that @ohchurch streams the services so that we can still participate. Reminded of a verse to the early church ‘For where two or more are gathered in my name, there I am among them.’”

For the past several years, Orchard Hill has been live streaming both their Christmas Eve and Easter services. “At Christmas, two families who were at Covenant on Christmas Eve thanked us for doing the important work of streaming,” commented Dave Bartlett. “Watching a service live helped them stay connected even when in the hospital.”

Numbers of those who logged on to watch the feed have continued to grow each year. It is another way technology has helped us to reach beyond our walls.

“I'm struck by the number, giftedness, and enthusiasm of the staff, leaders and volunteers who, because of Jesus' resurrection, devote hours and energy to share the good news with so many in our church family, community, and online,” shared Jeff Mickey, one of Orchard Hill’s three Senior Leaders. “I just feel compelled to say thank you.
I am so grateful to be part of this church.”
