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.

The Adult Education classes at First Pres will resume on Sunday, September 20, at 8:45 am on Zoom!  We’ll take an intrepid journey through the Gospel According to Luke, led by Glenn Leupold.  We will orient ourselves anew to Luke as well as get caught up on life events.  On September 27, the class – same time on Zoom – will be hosted by the Anti-Racism Task Force of the church. The last Sunday of each month the class leadership will be turned over to this important movement in our church and nation.  On October 4, we’ll return to Luke and dig into the text. While we’ll be picking up where the class left off in studying this Gospel, there will be no need to have been in previous classes nor to remember everything if you were there. BYOB - bring your own Bible!  The link to every Sunday morning class will be included in the eBlast coming from the church the Thursday before class.
