Live Stream

Welcome to PUMC online!  We’d love to see you in person, but if you can’t make  it to Pitman, you can view our services online.  We simulcast every Sunday morning service.  See this week’s Worship Service times in the right hand sidebar of our website.

Our Live Stream video window is shown below.  If it says “No stream detected” it just means that we’re not currently broadcasting.  But when we’re not live streaming a service, you can view some past services by clicking on the videos shown with the player.

The camera  only shows the front of the sanctuary.  For a “tour” of our sanctuary, check out our “Sanctuary” page by clicking this button:  Sanctuary Tour  

 

Our Lay Speakers will give the sermons on Sunday 6/17 and 6/24.

Pastor Jim will return to the pulpit on Sunday 7/1.

(He is continuing his normal duties during the week).

 

Videos

The video player has a menu which allows you to see other stuff like our Live Stream Schedule, an online Bible, and even a map showing the cities which are tuning in to our live stream.

Here’s how to watch a video:

  1. Scroll through the list of “channels” on the right side, click on the one you want to watch.  The “Live” item (on the top of the list with the big “play” triangle) is the Live Stream (active only when we’re “broadcasting”).  The others are recordings.

  2. Once you select your “channel”, it should start playing in the viewer (there will be a slight delay while the video loads).

  3. Once the video starts, click the menu icon (the thing with the 3 horizontal lines) to make the menu go away. 

  4. While viewing, you can maximize the screen so that the video fills your entire computer screen. 
    First, click the menu icon to hide the menu (if you haven’t already). 
    Then hover your mouse over the video widow to make the playback slider and other icons appear. 
    The “Maximize” icon is on the lower right corner (it looks like two arrows pointing outwards).

 

You can access the Menu features by clicking on the “Menu” icon (the top icon; the one with the 3 horizontal lines). If you don’t see the menu, move your mouse to the upper right hand corner of the screen and click on the “Menu” icon.

Here are the menu items that you see when the menu is open:

  1. The top icon (3 horizontal lines) turns the menu on and off.
  2. The “Play” icon (“>“) brings up the “channel selector.”
  3. The icon that looks like a spiral bound calendar displays when our next live stream will be.
  4. The icon with the “+” in it takes you to an online Bible (follow along with the scripture reading).
  5. The “I” displays our Purpose Statement (or any other Information that’s important).
  6. The last icon (““) brings up the map and “More Options.”

Technical Difficulties???

  • If you’re seeing an error message saying “Error Loading Player: No playable sources found” and you’re using Firefox, it’s possible that you need to install the Adobe Shockwave Flash player. Sorry. Here’s the link where you can do that:  https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ Before clicking the “Install Now” button, you may want to uncheck the “Optional Offers” boxes.
  • If you’re using a Mac or an iPhone and you can’t hear the audio, zoom in on the bottom right hand corner of the player window, and look for the “speaker” icon.  If you see an “x” next to it or a slash through it, tap the icon to unmute the audio.

If you have any problems viewing or hearing our stream, PLEASE let us know and we’ll get it fixed (scroll down to the bottom of this page and post a comment).  In the meantime, you can try going directly to the Sunday Streams site.

 

While you’re watching the service, you might be interested in checking out some other stuff on our website.  You can click any of these buttons without interrupting the video…

On the Go???

If you’re away from home and don’t have access to your computer, you can watch us on your phone too!

Free and easy to install apps for your Android or iOS phone are also available. Here are the basics for installing the app on your phone or tablet:

  1. Open the App Store (or Google Play) and search for the Sunday Streams app.
  2. Install the app.  When it asks for the “Church ID”, enter PUMC
  3. You “should” be good to go.  The app will display a video screen with links to available videos underneath it.  The Live Stream is chosen by default, but if we’re not broadcasting, you can tap one of the other videos.
    (Note:  After loading the Live Streams app, tap the Sunday Streams logo in the upper left hand corner of the video window to refresh the list of recordings).

 

 

Sign our Guest Book!

At some point during the service you’ll probably see Pastor Jim hold up a red folder and ask the congregation to fill it out and pass it down the pew. 

The pad simply has places for each person to enter their name and contact info, and then any other specific requests. 

It’s not an “attendance pad”; it serves two purposes:

  1. As you pass it down the pew you can notice the name of the person sitting near you.
  2. If you need any pastoral assistance, this gives you a chance to make a request.
  3. OK- three purposes… If for some reason you decide to stop coming out, we’d like to have your feedback.

You may be thinking, I’m watching online- this stuff doesn’t apply to me! 

Well, kinda right.  But- we’d love to hear from you.  We’ve been getting emails from all over the world from listeners who send their support and prayers.  If you’re not from PUMC, or if you’d like to comment on what you’ve been watching, please “sign our guest book” by entering a comment below.  We’d love to hear from you!

      Sorry you missed seeing Jim Hughes in person. How did he look on the Live Stream? Hope you feel better soon; have a blessed Christmas!

  2. Connie Norton

    Thank you Pastor Jim for an encouraging word this morning. I didn’t want to bring my cough into the service today. Connie

    Dear Pastor Jim,

    God bless you richly!

    The live stream is a blessing. Nothing like being there in person. But, an opportunity for many. I thought today’s message was very good. The BATTLE is forming, as real as the storm that hit Pitman, and only because of the ground being so soft, did much damage, a couple years back. I remember your description of the clouds, as you went to Heritage’s. However, as you said, God is still faithful, in spite of circumstances. As Corrie Ten Boom said, Jesus is VICTOR–and that makes ALL the difference; doesn’t it!?
