Thousands Access Live Feast Webcasts
November 3, 2011
This year for the Feast of Tabernacles the United Church of God was able to offer four live webcasts of Feast services for individuals who where not able to attend the Feast. The webcasts provided were from Gatlinburg, TN; Wisconsin Dells, WI; Bend, OR; and Merimbula, New South Wales, Australia.
Individuals, families or small groups could easily connect to one of the live webcasts and experience the live service for that day from their computer or mobile device. Our webcast statistics indicated that over 4,600 viewers watched over 70 live broadcasts of services, seminars or Bible studies held during the Feast.
The most viewers we had watching a single live broadcast was 264 on October 20 viewing the Gatlinburg webcast. There were a few smaller regional Feast sites that relied on parts of the webcast for their Feast services. An estimated number of people watching the webcast could well be over 5,000.
If you missed a webcast or would like to listen to some of the messages from various Feast sites, dozens of archived 2011 Feast of Tabernacles sermons are now available in MP3 audio format. Visit the Feast of Tabernacles Website at feast.ucg.org/sermons to listen to or download the sermons. Over the next few weeks, more sermons will be added from additional Feast sites.
Our appreciation and thanks goes out to all the many volunteers that helped provide the webcast this year for the Feast! Thank you for your time and the sacrifices your families made in order to provide this service for many people who were not able to attend the Feast this year.
If you watched one of the live Feast webcasts, please let us know what you thought and provide suggestions that could make it better for future years.
