RightNow Media! There are some great science and history videos on RightNow Media.Moody Science has some older but still well done nature films available. For example, check out Journey of Life to see some fascinating footage on the seed!
The Torchlighters is a series of animated programs with strong values and educational content geared for youth ages 8-12, but adults will find them interesting as well. Each episode presents the story of a true-life hero from Christian history.
Our church has access to an extensive, video library called RightNow Media! It’s like the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” and has a HUGE library of faith-based videos that you can access whenever and wherever you want—on your phone, iPad, computer, or at home on your TV. Contact Pastor Steve with your email address and he will send you a link.
No Computer? If you do not have access to the internet, feel free to come and access RightNow Media at church whenever someone is in the office. We have a Roku attached to the TV in the conference room that anyone is welcome to use.
A special thank you to the Roadie Crew; Loren Sivula, Todd Pakiz, Steve Fjelstad, Ron Meyers, Scott Gratz, Greg Illka, Joel Erickson, and Jason Nordick for getting everything needed for worship to the park and setting it up for the outdoor service this coming Sunday.
