2021 SUN MAR 14



Apologies for this being a week late. For some reason, our video recorder has started dividing services up into 10 files instead of just one. Consequently, I had to find software that would allow me to merge all ten segments into one, export it and then upload it to YouTube. This has made a 15 minute process into an hour long process. We are looking into a grant to update our recording equipment so that we can live-stream services and have them automatically archived here. Meanwhile I'll be working on combining and uploading our "back-log" of videos (March 2021).

 Many of you watch our recorded services either here or on our Facebook page. Thank you.

Be sure to "like" them, leave comments below them, and share them on social media.  Doing so helps others to be able to find them more easily on search engines.

Please consider also viewing them directly on YouTube, Look for us at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKnSxRLA32sh44z5nrLgiIA/featured on your computer or on your phone with the YouTube app.

Once you're there, please look for the "subscribe" button, and, just like you do on Facebook or on our Website, please click "like" and leave comments below videos. This goes even FURTHER in making our YouTube Channel, our worship videos and Pastor's sermons even MORE easy to find on the internet and the World Wide Web, not to mention on YouTube. 

The more "followers" we get, the more it effects the algorithms of search engines like Google and Bing. 

So many of you have thanked Pastor for his wonderful devotions on Facebook or left comments on them. Why not do the same on YouTube? Not only will it support him, it will make God's Word from St.John Charter Oak more easy to find online.

Don't forget to share these videos and St.John's YouTube channel with your family members, neighbors and friends. It can be a simple way to invite them to Church or Bible Class. It can be a wonderful way to help those who've moved away to feel connected.
