In these unique times, we are nevertheless seeking to join together in worship while also maintaining the recommended 'social distancing' necessary in this time of COVID-19.
We continue to gather in worship each Sunday at 10:00 via Zoom Webinar. Starting around 9:45, we will invite all participants in to say good morning and see each other before preparing for worship. We will also have "virtual coffee hour" following the service!
In addition, we will be gathering on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm for a mid-week time of prayer. Please email Rev. Sue for the link information so that we can keep this a safe and confidential space.
Please share the link with those who may be interested but have not gotten this information directlyHere's what to do:1. Access Zoom: While you can access the Zoom webinar using a regular computer browser (at the link provided via eNews), we recommend that you download the FREE Zoom app for either Android or iPhone, which you can find here: https://zoom.us/download#mobile_appTo join one of the online gatherings, log in to Zoom. In the top right there will be a box that says "join a meeting" Click on that and it will ask you for a meeting ID number. Use the number that is sent out in the eNews on Fridays. After you enter the meeting number you may also have to enter the password that's in the eNews as well.2. Subscribe to eNews: In order to keep our worship and prayer services confidential and safe, we will not be publishing the links on the website or Facebook. The links for Sunday worship, Wednesday prayer gatherings, Mens' breakfast and other gatherings will all be emailed via our eNews and Evangel email lists. If you have not subscribed to these, please contact Rev. Sue or the main office.
3. Consider your privacy: Each week we are attempting to simultaneously broadcast live on Facebook (when it cooperates!) as well as on Zoom. Facebook is a social media platform designed for openness, not privacy. If you have any privacy preferences or concerns, consider what name you provide on login and keep your cameras off while we are broadcasting live. We will announce when those broadcasts have started and ended.4. Observe respectful online etiquette: Mics and cameras will be enabled until 9:55am and again after the conclusion of the worship service. We ask that you mute your mics and turn off your cameras during the worship service itself. Our co-hosts will mute/disable mics and cameras remotely if you are having trouble. This will NOT impact your ability to view the worship service.5. Lastly, please leave the worship webinar entirely at the conclusion of virtual coffee hour. There should be a "Leave Webinar" link in the lower right-hand corner of your Zoom window.
