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.  From this window you can select our live broadcast (the video at the top of the list). Or, when we’re not live streaming a service, you can view some past services by clicking on the videos below the top item.

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  

 

March 22 Overload!

For those of you who tried to watch our service on Sunday 3/22… thank you for your patience!  As you probably experienced, our Live Stream connection was intermittent and it completely dropped out during the middle of the sermon.

The problem isn’t with your computer!  And, it wasn’t with the signal we sent to our live stream provider.  Our live stream provider as been encountering an unprecedented level of viewership during the coronavirus crisis, and the overload peaked this morning.  Apparently we’re not the only church live streaming services these days!  Slowdowns and outages occurred all over the country (or globe).

They are working on the problem and trying to add to capacity.  Hopefully this will be improved before next Sunday.  In the meantime, you can watch a (partial) recording of this week’s service and other recordings of previous services.

 

Welcome to Our Sunday, March 29 Online Service!

Because of the Coronavirus, our “in-person” worship services have been cancelled.  Instead, we are “producing” a Live Stream service at 10:15.  If you’re tuning in for the 9:30 service, please check back at 10:15.  If you’re tuning in for the 11:00 service… oops!  You can catch the end of today’s service and then come back later to watch a recording of it.

Last week, our Live Streaming provider was overwhelmed with the volume of traffic on their servers, and parts of last week’s service were lost.  They have been working all week to add extra capacity, so prayerfully, the broadcast of this week’s service will run more smoothly. 

 

Things to do while you’re waiting for the service to start…

(All of these buttons will open in a new tab without disturbing the broadcast)…

A special “online bulletin” has been created for today’s service. Click the following button to follow along during the broadcast:  

Order of Worship

Read the scripture passages that are scheduled for this morning:

Psalm 34:1-11,14 I Kings 19:3-12 I Galatians 6:9-10 

 

Pray!  Here are some website articles about prayer:

Prayer

—————

As with everything in this situation, we don’t know for sure what’s happening going forward.  But it’s likely that we will continue to offer Live Stream services, and they will begin at 10:15 (our usual 9:30 & 11:00 schedule will prayerfully return soon…).

Instructions

The video player below lets you watch our live broadcast (if one we are currently streaming).  If nothing’s happening now, you can also select from our library of recorded services.

 

Here’s How to Select a Video…

Browse through the list of  video “channels” on the right side and click on the one you want to watch.  The video “channel” on the top of the list is our Live broadcast.  The remaining videos are recordings of previous services. 

LIVE   If you want to see the Live Stream,  click on the top “channel.”  If the video doesn’t run (i.e., all you see is a still picture), then we’re not currently broadcasting.  If we’re not broadcasting, the screen will tell you when the next live broadcast is scheduled to start.
If you don’t see the live video channel, try clicking the “Previous Page” button (on the bottom of the right hand box) to navigate to the top of the video channel list.

RECORDINGS   You can also view recordings of previous services.  To watch a recording, simply click on the desired recording that’s shown in the right hand list.  If you don’t see the recording you’re looking for, you can use the “Previous Page” and “Next Page” buttons on the bottom to access the full list of videos.

 

Options While Watching a Video…

If you’re watching on a Desktop or Laptop,  hoover your mouse on the bottom of the video screen and a menu bar will appear.  To see this menu bar, a video must be playing.  From that bar you can select several viewing options.  If you’re using a phone, tap the video image and use use your phone’s controls to adjust the volume or to view full screen.

VOLUME    On the bottom right (next to the “gear” icon), you’ll see a speaker icon followed by a series of white vertical bars.  If there’s an “x” next to the speaker icon, the audio is muted (click on the speaker to mute or unumte).  To adjust the volume, click on the bars to add (louder) or remove (softer) bars.

FULL SCREEN    At the bottom right hand corner of the player, there’s an icon with two outward pointing arrows (pointing “Northeast” to “Southwest”).  If you click on this icon the video will cover the screen.  To return to the normal screen, press the Esc key. 

 

 

 

 

Are you Having Technical Difficulties?

If something’s not working and you can’t view (or hear) the videos, PLEASE let us know by posting a comment below.  We’ll contact you privately and get the situation resolved.  Notifying us of the problem also gives us some info that might help others who may encounter the same problem.

Here are some known issues:

  • The video player won’t load when using Internet Explorer.  If all you see above is an empty grey box or if you get an error saying something about “A server or network error occurred while loading the broadcast.” it could have something to do with your browser.  If this happens, try a different browser (such as Firefox, Chrome, or Edge).

(so far….that’s the only problem we’ve run into)

Sign our Guest Book!

At some point during the service might 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!

    No live stream today for Women’s conference

    • Chuck

      The conference IS being lived streamed. Perhaps you “tuned in” too early? They also took a lunch break, so the stream was off ~12-1 PM. Try it again! It’s on right now (Saturday 11/2, 1:11 PM)…

  9. Deborah Pennington

    Praise God for video streaming.

  10. Deborah Pennington

    Really like the availability to at least watch church over video cam. I am fighting anemia right now. With prayers it should be healing.

  11. Merrill Bakely

    no sound on streaming today. 9/22/19

  13. Judy jones

    Good morning Pastor Jim. I really enjoyed your sermon. Thank you for your prayers. Please continue to keep me in your prayers. Even though I’m home, I continue to have some problems with my afib and with my legs and walking. Hopefully one day I will be back to normal.
    Happy Birthday!

  14. Deborah Pennington

    I wanted to watch the service on live stream. I could hardly hear the pastors voice. I notice in church last week, His mike wasnt very loud. I do so enjoy being able to watch the service.

    • Chuck

      The audio problem was also noticed by others, so it wasn’t on your end. Sorry for the difficulty; we’ll look into it. Thanks for letting us know!

  15. Eileen Oczkowski

    In late March or early April 2019, Pastor Jim gave a powerful message on how David overcame Goliath that really spoke to me. I wanted to see it or listen to it again + share it with my friends but can’t find it listed on your site. Is there any way I/we can access it? I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    • Chuck

      All of our services are recorded, but not all are uploaded to the Live Stream archive. The one you’re asking about was on April 7, “One Shiny Stone.” We’ll see if we can get this one uploaded.

  16. Deborah Pennington

    wonderful childrens service.

  17. Staci Scheetz

    Glad to be a part of Worship while I am home recovering from foot surgery. A beautiful prayer for General Conference.

  18. Sarah Sacco

    Being sick for most of the month has gotten the best of me. I am grateful for the live-stream and enjoyed watching today’s service. Thank you for providing this to the community. I hope parishioners and the Pitman community are using this more and more.

  19. Deborah Pennington

    wonderful singing and sermon today. Praises to God for Pastor Jim. Prayers going out for everyones safety in getting home. Snow still coming down here but not alot.

  20. Bruce Pote

    Some days my allergies get the best of me. Today was such a day. It was so nice to know that I could still “attend” church, sip my coffee and put drops in my irritated eyes.

    Whenever I am under the weather or traveling, it is so nice to be able to stream PUMC’s church service.

    Keep up the great work!

  21. Deborah Pennington

    watching the cantata, could not bearly hear the man talking between the songs. The singing is great.

  22. Deborah Pennington

    Thank you for having this service on live stream. I am looking forward to watching the cantata today. As i am not able to drive at night. Blessings on the choir and the church. I am saddened about Jane Pape this is the first i am hearing about this. Praise God she is with him and not in pain anymore.

  23. Eileen Oxzkowski

    Looking forward to sharing Pastor Jim’s message from Sept. 2 and hoping it is posted soon. Thank you for the wonderful live stream and archived video ministries! It is a wonderful opportunity to witness to friends who are considering attending PUMC services!

  34. Deborah Pennington

    Thank you for a wonderful service. Didnt want to bring my sickness to church

  35. Walt

    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!?

  36. 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

  37. Ozell Szelag [Z-LAG]

    Good Morning Pastor Jim

    Staying home today so I don’t make everyone sick,, going to try to live stream

    • Chuck

      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!
