My beloved brothers and sisters,
I continue to pray for you each day. Remember to, “Trust in the Lord, with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your path,” Proverbs 3:5-6.
I am excited to announce that we will begin live streaming our worship services at 10:00am from our own FAME Facebook page. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you may sign up today at Facebook.com. On Sunday, click this link to access the Sunday worship service live stream: FAME OAKLAND LIVE STREAM
For those who choose not to use Facebook you may listen to the service via telephone by dialing into our free conference call number (605) 313-5719, access code 694281#. In order to maximize your experience as we utilize social media platforms, it is important that all members and visitors joining in through the live stream or conference call do so at least 5-10 minutes early. Also, so that all may hear and be blessed by the service, when calling in we ask that you immediately mute your telephone and do not announce yourself.
Members and friends are also encouraged to attend our weekly Morning Prayer Service on Mondays at 7:00am and Bible Studies on Tuesdays at noon and Wednesdays at 7:00pm. Dial into our conference call number (605) 313-5719, access code 694281#.
