Congregational Video 2

A message of hope for the New Year

We need your help!

We are putting together another congregational video as a way to encourage each other during this different holiday season. And we want to see you in the video! This video will be shared on January 1st, 2021 on our members-only site, by mail, and in our private Facebook group.

How to Help

You can help by recording a video of yourself reading a verse and/or a candid clip of your family. You can choose to do one or to do both! Please send your recordings by December 27 to give us enough time to edit the video. Here’s how to help.

Bible Verse Reading

Step 1: Choose one (or more) Bible verses.

Look at the Bible verses below. Choose one or more.

Step 2: Record

Record a video of yourself reading the verse (NIV). You can read it by yourself, with your family. Kids can do this too! (We chose some verses from the tree of knowledge so they might already have it memorized!) Landscape orientation preferred!

Step 3: Send your recording

Email your recording to OR use the submission box below to attach your file.

Candid Clips

Step 1: Record a quick, candid clip of yourself and/or your family.

Record around 5-10 seconds of activity. No need for a message or a wave. You can be doing every day, normal things (like eating or playing piano or running around the house) or holiday things (like decorating a tree or opening presents). We just want to feel like we are in each other’s lives again. Landscape orientation preferred!

We can’t wait to see you!

Step 2: Send your recording

Email your recording to OR use the submission box below to attach your file. Easy peasy! You can send more than one!

Bible Verses

Please read and record one (or more) of these verses.

  • No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)


  • My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever. (Psalm 73:26)

    through the darkest valley,
    I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me; (Psalm 23:4a)


  • Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
    They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)


If we receive all of the verses early enough, we may add more.
