What if I do not have internet/data and want to listen to a sermon?

Download the sermon within the app when you have internet/data which you can do at a Starbucks or somewhere that has wifi connectivity.

Once you download it within the app, click the top right icon to listen to your downloads. You will not need internet/data to listen to the downloaded material within the app. Enjoy!
