Seeds Coronavirus Usage Guidelines

Updated Seeds COVID-19 Usage Guidelines

Josh Houser

Introduction

We know we are in a difficult moment as a world as we deal with the effects of the Coronavirus and for most of us, this means doing church at home. We want to help and partner with all churches and ministries as they create church at home for families in their communities. Below we are outlining guidelines on how to best use Seeds resources.

Fun, Easy Family Devotions 

First, we have made it easy for families of your church to be able to spend time around God’s Word with our new Fun, Easy Family Devotions campaign. We set everything up so you have a memory verse, song, video, and devotion… all they have to do is set aside the time to meet together.

Here are instructions for how to have church at home as a family. Go to our Fun, Easy Family Devotions page and choose the memory verse you would like to use from the Live Devotions section. Once you have one picked out, do the following:

1. Gather the family
2. Pray
3. Play & Sing The Video From God’s Word
4. Read Devotion

Online Services 

Second, we want to help you with your online services. Here is how we can help:

  • We have 167 scripture songs on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms that you are free to use and create playlists as you see fit. We encourage all families to be streaming the Word of God in church, at home, and in the car.
  • We have over 250 videos to word for word scripture that you can purchase from us (https://www.seedsfamilyworship.com/seeds-single-video-by-category/) or partner site and you are welcome to integrate them into your online service.
  • You are welcome to share Seeds videos as part of your kids or church services on your Facebook page, YouTube page or streaming service page. 
  • You are welcome to show Seeds videos from your church’s app or website. 
  • You are welcome to upload our videos as part of your services to YouTube or Vimeo, Facebook, church website or streaming page. 
In short, you are welcome to use Seeds Music and Videos you have purchased for any online services. We just ask that you don’t post the videos as stand alone videos on YouTube, but they are fine as part of a kids service or church service.

Seeds Oneline Services:

We have created this Online Children’s Services in response to families being at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have missed our online children’s services, you can watch them on our Facebook or Youtube page for free. These same services are also for sale here. This is for churches that want to download the service, use it in its entirety for their church, or use any parts of it for their service.

A couple of other requests:

When you use Seeds resources, please give Seeds credit at the beginning or the end of the video/song. Please let families know they can stream Seeds from any platform or purchase any of our resources at www.seedsfamilyworship.com.

We want to be able to open up the floodgates of sharing Seeds resources to your families as we are a non-profit ministry and steward of God’s Word. Our ministry is supported 85% by the sale of its resources and 15% from donations from our partners. We exist to help plant God’s Word in as many homes and hearts as possible.

We are thankful for every parent and ministry leader we get to walk beside as we face these challenges. We want to encourage you to continue to walk by faith and lead your family and/or church toward faith. God is faithful and He is with us. If you have any questions or you need something we did not cover here, please e-mail us at seeds@seedsfamilyworship.com.

    Hi, quick question about using Seeds Family resources on our kids ministry videos. Is it ok to use your scripture memory songs as a background with my team / puppets singing with it? Here is an excerpt from a previous video to show you what I mean. https://youtu.be/514piULS2W0
