Zoom Gathering — this Sunday morning

Since our congregation is gathering for worship online but not in person, at least until further notice, we are utilizing Zoom gatherings in order to best facilitate online joys and concerns, as well as communion. (If you haven’t seen instructions for our online worship, visit this page first, then come back here.)

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Zoom works for electronic devices (e.g. computer, iPhone, iPad, etc.) and telephones
  • If you use a smart device (smart phone or tablet), download the Zoom Cloud Meetings app in advance
  • If your electronic device has a camera, you have the option of using your camera to be visible (if your camera is turned on we will be able to see you)
  • When you enter the meeting, your sound will be muted, so as to not have a cacophony of voices online at once, which will sound noisy
  • Once we get started, Phil will give instructions, then we will be able to share in conversation
  • If you’re using an electronic device, headphones are recommended in order to decrease feedback

Here’s a really helpful Zoom tutorial for beginners. If you’ve never used Zoom, it’s highly recommended to read this first.

Here’s what to do on Sunday morning:

  1. Watch our online worship service live stream this Sunday morning, March 15th, at 10:00 a.m.
  2. Then, following our online worship service, interested participants can switch to Zoom to gather together for joys and concerns, followed by communion. Please note that Zoom is not the same as our live stream. We live stream through YouTube; Zoom is separate from our live stream. (We don’t broadcast joys and concerns during our live stream because of privacy concerns; Zoom allows us to meet privately as a group.) The Zoom gathering will be facilitated by Phil and Emily and will start at about 10:30 or 10:45 a.m. After our live stream concludes, then you will switch from YouTube to Zoom. You can use the same electronic device for both.
  3. After you watch the worship service online, you can access our Zoom group by electronic device (including computer) or telephone. Here are instructions for each:
