“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you.
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” (Isaiah 41:10, NKJV)

 

We want to be with you too! As we have been told we must not meet at the church, we are doing our best to maintain our connections and contacts within our church family and community. We understand that it is best for everyone to greatly minimize physical contact and that is why we are staying away from each other as best we can however this doesn't mean we can't still connect with each other in new ways. With all the ways to communicate now it is so much easier to keep informed and connected to one another without endangering each other, we can isolate ourselves without being isolated!

This Saturday and Sunday we are going to try to ZOOM with everyone. What the heck is Zoom? Zoom Video Communications is a remote conferencing services company. It provides remote conferencing services that combines video conferencing, online meetings, chat, and mobile collaboration. If you have a smartphone, computer or tablet with a camera and microphone, you will be able to participate in zoom meetings with video and sound. For those with camera and microphone installed- please download the application from here:

Zoom

*note that you will need to give permission for zoom to access your camera and your microphone before it will work properly.
For those joining by computer/phone/tablet, you can simply click on the zoom meeting link that will be included in the email inviting you to the zoom gathering.
Everyone else will be able to join our zoom gatherings by phone, either cell or land lines. In the zoom invitations that will be sent out by email (or phone) there will be a toll-free number to join the meeting. When you call the number you will be asked to put in meeting ID number followed by a #sign—and then you will be able to hear and participate in the gathering.
We will do a test run on Saturday morning at 10:30 am so we can work out any bugs and help people learn to get on, then Sunday morning service will be a breeze to log into!

Here is the zoom invitation to the Saturday morning test drive. Note that the meeting room will be open from 10 am, but the gathering with actually begin at 10:30am:

Phone Tree

 

Shannon and others are busy setting up a phone tree as well. We have volunteers who have signed up as phone leaders and we are currently working on the lists. This is another way for us to stay connected and to make sure all of our church family is safe and doing well. Please feel free to call the church if you need help in any way, even if it's to pick up something like food or a prescription. The office won't be open regularly but the messages will be checked.
