FOTP At Home

A family for everyone, anywhere…

 

WATCH ONLINEPAST MESSAGES

Sunday 8:00am • 9:30am • 11:00am

Fellowship of the Parks is one church with many locations, and we believe one of those locations can be right where you are!

One of the incredible things about the time we live is that the Church is not limited by building or geography. We love gathering together in person, but that isn’t possible for everyone all the time.
 

Our hope is that FOTP At Home gives everyone the chance to gather together in worship, connect with others, and find resources that will encourage and enrich them.

FOTP At Home Essentials

You’re going to need a few resources every week to ensure you get the most out of FOTP At Home.

How to Host a Physical Watch Party

At FOTP, the health and safety of you and your family is our primary concern. Given the current state of the COVID-19 outbreak, only host a physical watch party when it’s safe to do so. If you are at-risk, or are around at-risk family members, keep your Watch Parties digital for a while. For those who feel comfortable hosting a physical party, here’s how you do it!

1. Find the time from our PUBLISHED SERVICE TIMES that works best for you and invite some guests.

2. Spruce up the house, DISINFECT anywhere people may be. Think through KIDS, and how to make sure everyone who may come feels WELCOMED and CONNECTED.

3. Be ready for your guests by having DOWNLOADED the necessary apps and set everything up where you will be watching.

4. Maintain the recommended and appropriate measures to keep EVERYONE SAFE.

5. Have everyone download the FOTP CHURCH APP beforehand so they can fill out CONNECTION CARDS, look at SERMON NOTES, and engage in CHAT.

6. Feel free to TURN UP THE VOLUME during worship to get ENGAGED in the music.

7. PRAY together as a group before everyone leaves.

8. FOLLOW UP with your group during the week to see how they are doing.

 

Maximize your experience by using the proper technology for streaming the worship service.

You don’t have to have the latest, greatest technology to host FOTP At Home. Some attention to detail and basic requirements will go a long way for a smooth & engaging experience!

A Family for Everyone…

FOTP At Home is our online ministry for you because you are important to us. Some of you will always be a part of our online campus family, and some of you may decide to connect at a physical campus someday.

We’re an imperfect church being pursued by a perfect God. He doesn’t want the mistakes you’ve made in the past or the mess you find yourself in today to keep you away and neither do we. That means there’s no need to dress up, perform, or wear a mask. We want to do life with you – authentic and real – no matter how messy you think it could get.
