Lots of Ways to Watch The Worship Services and More

The “Broadcasts” link on the website homepage

will take you directly to the video streaming channel.

From there, you can watch the Worship on your phone, tablet or computer.

You’ll also find a cast icon at the bottom of our broadcasts that will let you cast them to your TV through a Chromecast or Apple AirPlay device.

If you have a Roku, Amazon Fire, or Apple TV, you can find the stream there too.

Look for and install the BoxCast app on your device.

Once you’ve installed the app, search for “Portage Chapel Hill” in BoxCast.

There you’ll find all the same broadcasts as those on the website.
