We Are Centenary!
Video shout-outs from home to heart
Many of us have felt tremendous relief at seeing the faces of our fellow Centenarians during the Zoom fellowship calls.
We are happy to now offer that experience “on tap” right here! We are inviting all Centenary folks—young, old, and in-between—to create and send very brief videos of themselves saying hello to the congregation.
Just click the arrows in the video slider below to select your video, or you can CLICK HERE to view the full playlist on youtube.
Scroll to the bottom for details on how to record, what to include, and how to send it in.
Length: two minutes or less
Your video shouldn’t be longer than two minutes, and can be as short as 30 seconds.
It can take a variety of forms:
- Sharing what God has taught you while in quarantine.
- Sharing a funny story from a Centenary gathering.
- Sharing a favorite Bible verse or prayer request.
- Telling a joke.
- Simply saying, “hello, church family. I miss you.”
That’s not an exhaustive list, this thing will be pretty open ended. Feel free to be creative! Put on a puppet show! Share something you’ve painted. Do a book report on a piece of literature or a poem that has been meaningful to you during quarantine.
- We do ask that if you film your contribution on a phone or tablet, please hold your device in landscape mode (not vertically). This will make your video more accessible and visible across multiple platforms.
- The most convenient way (for Ben) you can send in your clip is to post it to your own youtube account (not Facebook), then e-mail us the URL (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you do not have a youtube account, you can transfer your video clip via google drive to that same gmail account.
- Please use the mp4 or MOV media format if transferring video clips through google drive
A few people have made musical contributions to this project, and that’s wonderful! But we don’t want to give anyone the impression that this is for musical folks only, so we’re asking that for the first ten days (concluding May 4) participants refrain from musical contributions. After that, we eagerly welcome singing, instrumental performance…whatever! And if your song is longer than the recommended guideline (under two minutes), that’s totally fine.
