CHAT Rules

Our online platform is designed for you to both enjoy worship and fellowship through chat with other viewers. We want each broadcast to be uplifting and encouraging for you, and we love seeing your comments and interaction in the chat space. However, it is also important that we keep this space free from distraction and potential harm or insult to others. The following chat rules have been established to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all viewers.

Chat Rules

  • Please let us know where you are watching from. We want to welcome you personally, especially if you are from another state or country.
  • No inappropriate or inflammatory language. Examples include profanity, sexually suggestive language, politically charged/slanted comments, racist, sexist or culturally insensitive language.
  • The chat is not a place to debate the message.  Taking classes or starting a Life Group are better suited for ongoing dialog.
  • Please keep chat posts to three lines or shorter. Longer posts can be a distraction.
  • Please do not type in ALL CAPS. This practice is generally associated with yelling.
  • If you have a prayer request, our prayer team is ready to pray with you. Visit or call our call center at +1 240-673-0036 during a live worship service. Please do not visit this site if you do not desire prayer.

Rule Violations

Our chat hosts reserve the right to delete any comment which is in violation of one or more chat rules. If a commenter repeatedly violates the chat rules during a broadcast, that viewer could potentially be “muted,” meaning that all of his/her comments are removed from the chat for the remainder of that broadcast.
