Shepherd of the Valley Has Installed an All New A/V Media Center!

Because of the Covid-19 restrictions, we started doing A/V (audio & video) church services back in March with Zoom. It has been a great temporary solution for live worship, but it does have its limitations. We want you to know that we have made good use of our time apart and have made some really exciting changes to our A/V set-up.

Because of the Covid-19 restrictions the way we worship has evolved. Many of us hope we will be able to physically return to our church sometime soon; and we will open as soon as it is safe to do so. When we do return to in-person worship the media team will be broadcasting (and recording) the worship service from the sanctuary for those who cannot attend in person. 

We are so grateful to Bill Wysong and Bill Greenman who have built a fully functional live A/V media center at the back of the sanctuary where the old sound booth used to be. It’s so beautifully made!

We have new cameras which can be robotically controlled and professionally switched just like a broadcast TV show!  The show will be live on the internet, but it will also be archived for video-on-demand viewing by anyone at any time in the future. Who knows how many people we will be able to reach in Jesus’ name in the future through this new platform?  It is our chance to expand our horizons and truly make the world our parish.

We hope there will be a video service from the sanctuary in the month of July.  It might just be Pastor Lynn, Jerry, and Bill Wysong, but it will at least let us see the Sanctuary again. We hope a few people from the worship team will be able to participate in live-worship again someday very soon.
