Use What You Have & Pivot: Online Worship Reflections during COVID-19

Group 236

With the onset of Covid-19, Pastor Dave Sonnenberg and Phillip (Rockstar a/v guy) from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Gaithersburg, MD, pivoted to use equipment they already had on the campus in another building to build the capability to livestream church services. 

Pastor Dave said,  “Online worship went from being, ‘we should move forward when we get new cameras,’ to, ‘we should move forward immediately so we can offer worship in a time we can’t gather!’ We are learning very quickly how to do live stream worship. It’s not perfection but we will keep tweaking and making improvements. Our goal is to provide the best experience we can for as many as we can.

As we pivot to this new reality of online worship and continue to be church together during the pandemic, read the rest of Pastor Dave’s reflections and details of how Good Shepherd has used what they have to bring the Good News to everyone online.
