The YouTube page for the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs shows that church leaders frequently documented Sunday services. The last video uploaded on the page was recorded one week before the shooting. During the Oct. 29 service, Pastor Frank Pomeroy told his congregation that they should always be ready to profess their love of God.
Nearly every video on the page begins with the congregants of the church filing into their seats. They are seen greeting their neighbors and exchanging pleasantries as they prepare to worship their faith. The services begin with songs from a group of musicians gathered at the altar. They then segue into a long sermon, usually given by Pomeroy, with some interruptions for more music. The services end with salutations and church announcements.
