Let’s look at how we can use audio visual tools to help you connect with your congregation during COVID-19.
Traditionally, Sunday mornings in local Georgia churches consisted of a packed sanctuary. Tens or hundreds of community members gathered for a time of praise and worship together.
But when the COVID-19 pandemic struck our nation in the spring, it altered everyday life as we knew it. And with that came changes to what a normal Sunday morning looked like in your Atlanta church, too.
As people began to stay home and large gatherings were prohibited to help slow the spread, it became evident that new, virtual ways of connecting with your congregation were imperative.
Thanks to modern technology, sharing the message can still go in the digital world.
Here are some ways you can fellowship safely and remotely:
Live streaming is a tool many local Georgia churches have relied on throughout this time. And it is a tried and true audio visual resource for maintaining that sense of normalcy with your congregation.
Using a live streaming service allows your audience to watch you live, as if they were in person. With some services, you can also enable a chat feature. This allows people to interact with you and each other.
Or, satellite uplink broadcasting is still an option for sharing a live feed.

Small groups, prayer, and counseling doesn’t have to stop. Using a virtual communication tool you can meet “face-to-face,” virtually!
Virtual communication tools include Zoom, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, and others.
By recording a message and sharing via email, you are providing a more personal connection. They can hear your voice; they can see your face and your expressions.
Use a simple audio visual setup such as your phone or a video camera to record. You can also make your sound and video clearer with extra AV tools, such as a lapel mic.
Recording your message is also a great way to get the word out about your church. People can share the video with friends and family!
Social media is saving the day once again. These days, most people are on social media or are at least familiar with it.
If you are looking for a simple way to keep everyone connected, creating a social media group is a great way to do so. People can post prayer requests, share their devotions, or pictures of what they have been up to.
This is a great way to stay connected with people on their own time.
The switch to remote life amid the COVID-19 pandemic was a swift one for most people. Do you have access to the same equipment? Do you need help transitioning your equipment from the office to your home?
