PostSubject: I am SO disappointed.....   I am SO disappointed..... I_icon_minitimeWed Apr 08, 2020 10:36 am

My little church is made up mostly of senior citizens.  They are scared of this virus.  However, they miss being able to come to church and worship together.  I have been doing Facebook live sermons, but most of these folks don't have smart phones or the internet and don't want it.  They've lived a life without this tech and see no need for it now.

So, I was going to get a portable FM transmitter so that we could come to church and sit safely in your cars without having to be close enough to possibly contract anything.  I tried to get one from Amazon but you are looking at the end of May before they could get one.  So, I ordered one on Ebay.  Two days after ordering, the seller said he had sold out but his Ebay store hadn't updated his inventory.  He was out and wanted to refund my money.  Then, I went to Walmart.com.  I found one that was supposed to be in stock and here by Friday.  So, I ordered it.

I got my notice that my package would be delivered yesterday.  No package.  I got a notice through Walmart.com that my package had been delivered despite me being at home most of the day.  I checked last night with the neighbors, the empty house next door, all over my property, and there is nothing.  I rechecked the notice, and it was delivered to a town 2 hours away from me!  So, I emailed the third party seller.  I also checked out FedEx who it was supposedly shipped with and ran a package track.  The FedEx number is bogus!  So, I checked the user rating of the seller, and they are getting more and more one star ratings all for the same reason:  people order and don't get their stuff but it shows as shipped to another city in their state sometimes hours away.  Mine supposedly is two hours away in a town that doesn't even have a street with the same name as mine and shipped from a FedEx location that is merely a drop off inside an Office Max with a bogus number.

My heart is breaking as I so wanted to do something special for my church people.  I can't find another one of these units anywhere, either.  My plan is dead in the water.

That's horrible!

I know a couple of churches around here have done that same thing with great attendance, in some cases more people than they usually have by a large margin.

I have tried, but I can't seem to get anywhere with that.  I am currently on hold with Walmart.com to see what they can do. I would rather have the transmitter, but a refund would be nice.

At the same time, I feel like every time I try to do something to further this church that I get knocked back down.

There is a park behind our house. The hurricane pretty much leveled it and now it is an empty field. One of the churches down the street had a service there. They parked in a circle with the pastor in the middle while he delivered his sermon.

Do you have a mic and speaker you could take to the porch of your church? Try that so they can roll down the windows and hear you. Might be an option!

While I do have a portable single speaker PA, with my congregation being older and harder of hearing, I was afraid they still won't be able to hear me.

Chris,

I understand that the governor of Tennessee has issued an executive order restricting social gatherings of 10 or more.  Since you have a small congregation, would it be possible to hold multiple church services throughout the week for 10 people or less?

While I could, many of my folks are scared to death as they think they will die if they get this since they are in the high risk area.  Also, it would require me to drive 35 miles both ways multiple times during the week.  I can do it, but I don't think they would come for that.  Plus, our number of available days is shortened by the fact that we have a Hispanic church that uses the building two days a week.

The FM transmitter allowing them to stay in their cars to worship was my best last hope for getting everyone together before they lift this ban--if they lift it.

I had already looked at this one.  It only transmits 45 feet.  Some of the others on the market will broadcast the length of a football field.

I am less disappointed today with a big spark of hope.  The seller I bought my FM transmitter through from Walmart.com emailed me back on Thursday.  They said they could replace the unit but it would take 4-5 days to reprocess the order and then the same for shipping.  I told them they could either overnight the unit or give me a refund. I didn't hear back from them until yesterday.  The sent a message saying it had been shipped.  I followed the USPS link and it actually took me to their correct page unlike the bogus FedEx shipping number I previously had.  Well, the USPS site said my package was DELIVERED.  It was too late to finish all I was doing here yesterday, go to the church, and test everything out.  But, I checked the mailbox, and I have a portable transmitter.  Lord willing, we will be having parking lot church next Sunday!

Cool!  Thanks for watching!

If anyone else would like to watch my sermon from today, just follow the link to our Facebook page.  It is a public page, so you don't even have to have an account to see it.  My wife's 80 year old mom is watching it every week.  We just saved a shortcut to her phone so she just has to tap it and tune in.  If she can do it, I know you guys and girls can, too!  LOL

We watched our church on TV for Easter service. I had been searching for it on the "guide channel" and could never find it because it said they were on Channel 7. No problem! But when I went to channel 7 I could never find it. Turns out they are on channel 7.2. So I looked for channel 7.2 and couldn't find it either. Then I looked on the "standard definition" channels and found it. They do not have an HD version and that's why I couldn't find it - we never watch SD channels unless it is MeTV since they are not in HD on my cable provider. Surprised all the local channels are not carried on HD on my provider.

So glad the FM transmitter finally arrived, I look forward to hearing how well it works.
