Our sanctuary and church buildings remain closed at this time, but we are excited about ZOOM CHURCH during this emergency.  We can actually see and hear each other, which is almost as good as being there in person.  Many people also call in on the telephone and they are able to hear everyone and to be heard as well.  

Everyone is invited to join us again this Sunday at 10am.  Please send an email in advance to revdrlynn@gmail.com if you are not on the church’s email list.  You will receive an invitation to join us in worship via email.  You can simply click on the link in that email to join the meeting at 10am Sunday for a fully interactive Audio Visual session with Pastor Lynn and everyone, or you can join in by the phone numbers listed.  It is quick, easy and free, and you should see Pastor Lynn live within a few seconds.  The church bought the Zoom service to be able to do this.  The UMC organization trusts Zoom and recommends it to us. 

When you join us through a computer, tablet or smart phone you can participate fully.  You will be able to jump in during joys and concerns, and during A/V fellowship at the beginning and end.  If you don’t want to be seen you can simply cover your web cam if you have one, OR don’t sign in to the meeting with video.  Then nobody can see you.  It is your choice.  You will also be able to call a telephone number if you prefer, which is what many people do. 


More information from Pastor Lynn and the church is available on the NEWS TAB.  We will post news updates to that page when we know more.
