Faith for Living and the D. James Kennedy Institute of Reformed Leadership presents our first online chapel service: Palm Sunday 2020.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges and, as always in Church history, new ways to fulfill our obligation of grace: to worship the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
This online service is available to everyone. The service is also designed to be used by churches who need online worship resources. We will seek to produce additional online chapel services during this crisis and beyond so that others—small churches without means, ministries who need an online worship presence, and others—may continue their presence in the lives of their members and fulfill the Great Commission.
To that end, we encourage churches and ministries who use the content to feel free to “brand” the material with their respective logos and contact information. Use the material on your web site. The idea is that we produce these to serve the Church. We want your church or ministry to prosper during this time.
You have full permission to use the material for your ministry. Here is a permission notice if you desire to re-brand it to your church or ministry:
Content is used by permission for personal, eclessial, educational, and nonprofit purposes. Unlimited distribution permission is granted. Faith for Living Online Chapel is © 2020 Michael A. Milton and Faith for Living, Inc. All rights reserved.Faith for Living., Inc. For Christ and His Church. Faith for Living is a 501(c)(3) North Carolina religious nonprofit corporation.
The Concept: For Christ and His Church. Period.
The concept is simple. We produce a worship service with a sermon by Michael A. Milton. We make the content available for individuals, groups, or churches, ministries, and nonprofits via a playlist of videos that correspond to movements in a worship service (a Call to Worship, an Invocation, etc.). We grant permission for you to brand the material to support your ministry. We also grant permission for backlinks, for downloading the material and using it on your site, on social media streaming, or in any way you like.
The Instructions for Use
The content is stored on a site, Screencast.com. You are given a unique link (the button) to access and use the content. Alternatively, you may set up an RSS feed into your website (feed address is provided in its own button). The material can be downloaded for free as long as you use the link on this page. We will seek to have content prepared by Thursday of the week. Access the content and then use it as you choose:
- Prepare the content for broadcast by adding an introduction to your website. Use links to your giving page. Add your logo and other identifying items to the content.
- Use the material on your Facebook page, your website, or even send a link to your members to access individually.
- You may use this Faith for Living Online Chapel service for your main service or use it as a supplemental service. Use it on a Sunday or use it any other time you like. The links stay live.
We follow the Sunday lectionary (a selection of Old and New Testament readings) from the Book of Common Prayer (2019 version of the Anglican Church in North America).
Faith for Living, Inc. (and the D. James Kennedy Institute of Reformed Leadership) a board-governed nonprofit corporation. The ministry holds to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as the doctrine taught in Holy Scripture. While Dr. Milton is an ordained Presbyterian minister (PCA) he is conscious that he is a guest preacher in your church. He will seek to preach “Mere Christianity” and respect the secondary matters of conscience (e.g., mode of baptism) in the larger Body of Christ while remaining true to the Scriptures, the Great Commission, and the Reformed faith.
We pray that our efforts and the content will be used to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ as well as support local churches, ministries, and nonprofits in their respective and varied missions.
Gifts in support of these efforts go to Faith for Living. Such offerings are appreciated but never expected.
Faith for Living. For Christ and His Church.
