Updated plan for Sunday, April 26th

Today, April 23rd, the District Apostle was made aware that this Sunday, April 26th, Chief Apostle Schneider will conduct an English service from France.

Given this unexpected opportunity, this recorded service will take the place of the originally scheduled live service from District Apostle Kolb. Similar to how those in the USA district accessed the Easter service, the on-demand video of the service, in English and Spanish, will be available at https://www.nac-usa.org/sunday by 10:00am eastern time Sunday morning, and will remain accessible throughout the following week. Also on that web page is the on-demand call-in information, also accessible throughout the following week. Audio translations of French, Swahili, and Chinese will be available online on Sunday afternoon as they become available.

We happily look forward to this Sunday’s service.

Regarding the month of May: At this time, given the various levels of restrictions still in place around the country, the USA Apostles have agreed that in-person divine services and church activities will remain suspended in our country through Sunday, May 10th. The Sunday services for May 3rd and May 10th will be provided nationally via a live webcast.

NAC USA Online Updates

We know that there are very real reasons as to why people need online services. And for these reasons, NAC USA Online will continue broadcasting live services from specified locations. Starting on July 1, 2019, there will be one broadcasted service per time zone and one Spanish service.

These reasons for viewing live broadcasted services on NAC USA Online include:

  • Congregations with few or no altar servers
  • Linked Members and/or shut-ins

If these members cannot experience the true fellowship and community only felt through actual presence at a divine service, they can at least hear the preached Word. For all other people, members or guests, actually being in a divine service is what we offer and what we encourage.

There may be a few other reasons why one would use NAC USA Online – members with shortterm illnesses, members who are traveling, etc. Members who use NAC USA Online for one of these reasons tend to have more of a choice in deciding if they will be able to attend divine service in a physical church. Because they have this choice, and because we know that the divine services experienced only through NAC USA Online are lacking in multiple aspects, we encourage these members to go to church when possible and, when not possible, to log into NAC USA Online to access divine service clips from the Chief Apostle and District Apostle, also available on the New Apostolic Church USA app. We hope that this will help equip each one to have a maturing faith.
