How to Participate in Morningstar Christian Fellowship Live Services
Due to the Ministry of Health’s mandate regarding social-distancing and self-isolation we are unable to gather together in person this Sunday. We have decided to take our services online and have been working hard this past week to provide you with the best live stream experience. This involves a brand new streaming platform (Boxcast) capable of streaming to all of us at the same time.
We want to make the viewing experience simple and easy for you so we have provided you with several options to view our services live on Sunday Morning (see below).
This week we will be streaming our morning services at 9am and 11am. The Live stream will begin roughly 10 minutes prior to the start of the service at 8:50 am and 10:50 am. Go to one of our media options outlined below before the start of the service (i.e., Website, Morningstar App, Facebook, YouTube or Boxcast app on your Smart TV). If the stream hasn’t started yet keep refreshing your page every minute until the stream pops up. You may need to press play in order to start the stream. You should now be live and we can worship together as one church to sing, pray, learn and respond to the Word. We encourage you to sing out loud and make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord wherever you are watching!! Words will be shown on the bottom of the screen, to help you sing along.
Give yourself a few extra minutes to set things up prior to the start of the service, especially if you are new to streaming or trying one of the new options. Take your time and don’t rush. If you need extra support consider calling someone in your family or a friend who is experience with technology.
Here is how to access the different media options:

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. –Psalm 100
