Zoom Instructions for Sunday Morning Gatherings

We are gathering on Sunday mornings at 10:30 during the pandemic by means of Zoom, a way to talk with one another face to face on line sharing Joys, Concerns, Prayer Requests, Information and Mutual Support.

Zoom accounts are free and allow you to test out the system in advance so you can be ready to sign on when the time comes.  We have had participants from South Carolina, British Columbia and Guatemala in our Zoom gatherings, providing an extraordinary opportunity for our far flung flock to feel close and have real face to face connection.

We are also gathering on Thursday evenings at 6:00 PM for the Heartfulness Contemplative Training Circle.  You can find out how to sign on for that group by clicking here.

Please join us at 10:30 AM on Sunday morning on line on Zoom:

Topic: Joys, Concerns, Prayer Requests and Support

Time: 10:30 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada) every Sunday.

Directions On How To Use Zoom

Download the Application to Your Computer First (if you will be using the computer)
Open your internet browser and go to zoom.us
On the top, charcoal colored bar, click
‘Resources=>Download Zoom client’
On the Download Center page that opens, choose the top option ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’
You will get a Zoom installer file appropriate for your computer.
Run that file and it will install a small, client application that all the Zoom Meeting links will use.
Once you successfully install this, you should be ready to join any Zoom meeting, using the meeting links that you receive.

Joining a Zoom Meeting Remotely
