Waycross, GA (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
Trinity United Methodist Church, today announced LIVE Internet broadcasting of its worship services. This church is the first and only one in Waycross that offers live webcast and archive video of services via the Internet. The local and global impact of this outreach is expected to be very positive.
“We are living in a Global Village today, where families and friends are widely dispersed all over the world. With this new technology we can include people who are unable to attend our services in Waycross for whatever reason,” said Pastor Don Fogal senior pastor at Trinity UMC. “Our hearts, our minds and our doors are open to all, wherever they may be,” continued Pastor Fogal.
Since its inception, Trinity has developed a reputation for being "first" in many areas. Trinity was the first church in Waycross to broadcast its services on the radio, the first to instigate Homecoming Day in this section of the state, the first to mother 2 Sunday School classes that later became churches. Trinity was the first to have a Sunday School class (Big Brothers) broadcast their lessons each Sunday on the radio, which they have done for 68 years now, local mission (House of Hope) and a 24-hour telephone prayer line. To continue this tradition, Trinity UMC is now the first church in Waycross that offers live webcast and archive video of services via the Internet.
“I am really excited to be able to greet and extend the love of Christ to everyone who view our services through this electronic medium. It is a blessing to be able to reach out to so many old friends and new acquaintances and share a little portion of heaven,” said Pastor David White, Associate Pastor at Trinity UMC.
PraiseCast is the company that provides the complete webcasting services. “ PraiseCast’s complete and unique approach to church webcasting will enable us to extend our reach and connect with people who are unable to attend in person,” said Waylan Carter, in charge of webcast ministry.
The LIVE webcasts can be viewed every Sunday morning at 11:00 am at the church’s website, http://www.trinitywaycross.org. Recording of these broadcasts will also be available at the same website for later viewing.
