  • As the weather worsened Saturday night, February 14, and houses of worship reluctantly called off their Sunday services, the pastor, choirmaster, and governing body of the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church decided to conduct its usual 10:30 a.m. Transfiguration Sunday worship -- to an empty sanctuary. An email went out to 124 of the church's internet-equipped member families, inviting them to avoid hazardous travel, stay at home, and attend church remotely by listening to a live-streamed edition of the service. WLNG also helped spread the word, including information about the webcast among the multiple church cancellation notices. "Today is a historic first for Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church," said Pastor Peter Sulyok in his welcoming announcement. "The blizzard of Valentine's Day may have closed our building, but here in our warm and mostly empty sanctuary, the morning service will be the first internet-only service for one of the oldest churches on Long Island, founded in 1670." Organist and choirmaster Thomas White dismissed the choir and modified the musical components of the order of worship, substituting his own solo voice for the sung portions of the service. A dozen families tuned in via the internet to hear live scripture, sermon, and music. The service was also archived where it can be heard at Media.BridgehamptonPC.org.<br/><span style='font-style:italic'>Submitted Feb 17</span>
