It was fun while it lasted.
When local officials decided to shut down in-person gatherings and asked everyone to kindly stay inside their homes for the next month or two, we decided, why not start our own TV station? That way, instead of the craziness of Tiger King, people could watch some more wholesome (but still crazy) programming designed to equip, encourage, and connect the church body.
Things change quickly in these uncertain times, and with restrictions starting to relax, we’ve decided to shift our efforts away from Watermark TV and focus on other ways to care for the body. In case you missed any of it the first time (or want to rewatch your favorite parts), here are the top 10 clips from Watermark TV.
1. Socially Distanced Wrestling
Little-known fact: Frisco Campus Pastor, Connor Baxter, was a collegiate wrestler, and for a short while held the Oklahoma State University record for the fastest pin. Better-known fact: Student Ministries Director, David Penuel, will do almost anything for a laugh, including putting on a singlet and challenging Connor to an impromptu wrestling match.
2. Hey There Corona
In one of Watermark News @ Night’s “COVID Covers,” Braun Brown and Daniel Crawford take “Hey There Delilah,” which used to be a love song, and turn it into “a strong dislike song” instead.
3. Help a Brother Out ¯_(ツ)_/¯
In these uncertain times, Watermark TV gave you one thing you could always count on: David Penuel would try to convince someone to buy him a pool.
4. The McGees on Marriage
John and Pam McGee offer three suggestions for how to help marriages thrive during shelter-in-place orders and challenge kids to do something nice for their parents.
5. Family Prayer
This is how it all began – with a little bit of technical difficulty, of course! In this very first episode of Watermark TV, Jim Wimberly and Todd Wagner start things the way we should always start: with prayer.
6. Leading Yourself Well
In a live episode of Watermark’s Church Leadership Podcast, Adam Tarnow and John McGee discuss practical ways to remain emotionally, spiritually, physically, and relationally healthy.
7. Kid Correspondents
We turn to the next generation for tips on investing, public policy decisions, and what we should have for dinner.
8. The Zoom Song
Rob Thomas, Dinah Wright, and Braun Brown hold a Zoom meeting to sing about how they are tired of Zoom meetings.
9. A Wedding Proposal
With her wedding to Colby Eldredge scheduled for just eight days away, Laura Webb is surprised by an offer to get married live on Watermark TV.
10. Fake Maid of Honor
Instead of broadcasting the wedding itself on Watermark TV, Laura and Colby stopped by afterwards for a fast-paced reception. Emma Martinez served as a stand-in for the maid of honor. Here, she gives the ultimate clichéd wedding toast, keeping a straight face through almost none of it.
