Accessing the Church Facebook Page

If you do not have a personal Facebook account you can still see the church Facebook page by clicking on the Facebook icon in the upper righthand corner of the home page.  Once there, one must scroll down to the very bottom of the page.  Seeing there the “create new account” green box,  click on the words “not now” which are located immediately underneath the green box. This takes the viewer to a new screen and to  the videos—very visible in the center of the screen.  Scroll down or up as needed to access the one needed.
