Zoom Studies

For people who cannot attend in person, Dearborn Bible Fellowship utilizes Zoom capabilities. At 4:00 PM on Sunday and Wednesday, a Zoom meeting invite is sent via email to all who want to be on the invite email. (The actual meeting starts at 5:00.) We normally begin singing together with Zoom in “gallery” mode so everyone can see and hear each other. After singing, we usually spend several minutes praying together. So, for those who cannot attend in person, the Zoom experience is as close as it can be to being here. After prayer time, Zoom is switched to speaker mode and the study portion is recorded through the Zoom utility. Only the speaker (typically Tom Bear) can be seen in the videos that are recorded. Links to those videos appear below. The ones that are in bold font are probably the most relevant in light of the current spiritual climate. (All videos can be downloaded and viewed at a later time if desired.)
