INSTRUCTIONS Facebook Live Streaming: we’ll normally start broadcasting about 3 to 5 minutes before the service (so 9:55–9:57) with Trevor’s prelude. Any time after that go the main Facebook page for First Presbyterian Church of Albany. Very close to the top (or maybe just by scrolling down slightly) you’ll see the video with the words “Live now” or something similar. Click on the video and it will open into a larger window and play.  So just stay on the First Pres home page, no need to go into Events or any other sub-page.
 HELPFUL TIP: if you don’t see the livestream on the home page, refresh / reload your browser screen.  Don’t hesitate to call Dwight Cheu at 518.469.1544 if you have any problems.

Wednesday, July 22, 6-8pm
Online Zoom Workshop

On July 22, please join us for Poor People's Campaign 101. We will discuss the history of the 1968 campaign, the relaunch in 2018 and how we got to where we are today. Most importantly, we will focus on the principles of the campaign and our goals, in particular why shifting the narrative by shifting the narrator is so central to what we do. We will also explore ways you can get involved. Whether you are new to the campaign or would just like a refresher, or perhaps you are wanting ideas on how you too can present the Poor People's Campaign to your organization or community, we encourage you to register for this program and discussion. Spanish and ASL interpretation available.
