On-Site & On-line Sunday Services/Worship
On-site Sunday services are coming back! Beginning Sunday, October 31 2021 you will have the option of attending services either on-site or on-line (Facebook – you don’t need to have an account to watch)!
This is a big step for our small congregation. We are so grateful for the many volunteers who have been flexible and adaptive and are making it happen!
1. If you choose to join us onsite, please remember your face mask per the building usage parameters.
2. Sunday Services/Worship is now on Facebook. Use the “Online Sunday Services” button at the top of the congregation’s home page: https://1stuupb.org/
3. Social Hour is both online and on-site. Please see the Frequently asked Questions below for more detail.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Will there be Social Hour After Services On-Site?
Yes. Social hour on-site is in Ministers’ Hall or outdoors, depending on our building use parameters limitations. Coffee is served according to the building usage parameters limitations. In Orange, this means coffee is consumed outdoors in disposable cups (or bring your own mug from home).
Will there be Social Hour After Services On-Line?
Yes. Worship is on Facebook, but Social Hour online will be on Zoom. This means that you will need to leave Facebook and come back to our homepage and click the “Zoom Social Hour” Button to enter Zoom.
How do I watch the Sunday Services/Worship On-line?
To view the Sunday service on-line, go to our website (https://1stuupb.org/) and click on the “Online Sunday Services” button. This will take you to our Facebook Live page.

How can I comment or chat on Facebook. Is it similar to the chat feature on Zoom?
Yes. Facebook has a comment feature, but use of this comment feature is limited to people who have logged in. If you are joining without a Facebook account or without logging in, you may not be able to comment. You will still be able to see the comments from other attendees.
Can I still watch Sunday Services/Worship on Zoom?
No. Due to limitations built in our technology, we will only be streaming to Facebook going forward.
All I see is videos from past services. Am I on the right page?
Yes. If you are early, and the service hasn’t started yet, you will see a list of past Sunday service videos. Keep this in mind in case you ever miss a service some time. You can watch these any time!
When the service starts, it will start playing at the top of the page. If you have been waiting a while, you might try going back and clicking on the “Worship on Facebook” button again to refresh the page.
Can I make the video any bigger?
Yes. For best viewing, on the live Sunday service video as well as on the past Sunday service videos, click on the “enlarge” or “full screen” button at the bottom right of the video.
