The Central/Southern Illinois Synod ministry staff periodically provide recorded sermons that can be used by the congregations in its worship services. These video sermons allow congregations to hear the voices and see the faces of synod staff, providing a renewed connection with the wider synod. Staff sermons are also used by congregations during pastoral vacancies when finding pulpit supply can be difficult.
Some congregations have invested in sanctuary audio and video improvements to make use of the video sermons. Grants are available to congregations to help offset the cost of adapting worship space for video sermons. Contact Pastor Elise Rothfusz, Congregational Resources Coordinator, for more information.
