VOUS Home Guide

Church Online Home Guide

Welcome to our Church Online Home Guide. Our Home Guide is to provide you with tips, best practices, and a discussion guide to make the most of your online experience. You can lead and pastor your home by creating healthy habits when you take part.

These ideas may vary depending on your home dynamic. This is meant to be a helpful guide so you can get the most out of your time at home. Prepare, Participate, Process.

Before Service: Prepare

Plan the best time to watch service. We offer experiences throughout the day.

  • 10AM / 12PM / 2PM / 5PM ESP/ 7PM EST
  • Join others on ZOOM during our 10AM & 12PM services.
  • Decide with those in your home the time you will watch.

Have a child between the ages of 2 - 11? There’s a service for them, too!

  • Stream anytime
  • Plan out the time that works best for your children to view their VOUS Kids experience.

Send the invite!

  • Share the time you are watching church online with friends.
  • If you are comfortable with having a few people in your home, you can invite them to join with you in person. But please follow the guidelines of your city and state.

Create a distraction-free environment.

  • Set your phone aside or silence notifications
  • Have your Bible, notebook, pen ready

Go from Spectator to Participator.

  • Engage in worship. Stand up and sing out loud.
  • Partner: Give an offering, sign up to serve, visit our virtual connect corner.
  • Interact with the message: Open your bible, take notes, comment in the chat.

After Service: Process

If you or someone with you decides to follow Jesus, take a moment to pray. Take some next steps by connecting to "I have decided".

  • If you live alone, Zoom a friend and discuss
  • Share your experience

Watching Church Online with Others?

  • After watching the sermon, review the discussion with your group.
  • Pick a different leader each week, it’s a great way to participate.

Watching Church Online Solo?

CHANGES: The Place of Change

Mark 1:35-45

35 Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” 38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. 40 A man with leprosy[h] came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” 41 Jesus was indignant.[i] He reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” 42 Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed. 43 Jesus sent him away at once with a strong warning: 44 “See that you don’t tell this to anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.” 45 Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.

Psalm 119:147
