ON-LINE WORSHIP FOR SUNDAY

We are moving to ZOOM for our on-line worship. It allows those with only a telephone to connect. If you have issues with ZOOM, we will also be trying to livestream on YouTube. The information for YouTube is AFTER the information for ZOOM.


ZOOM INFO FOR ALL WAYS OF CONNECTING

FOR TELEPHONE ONLY:

  1. Call the Montreal Zoom number at 438-809-7799. (If you are calling from elsewhere, ask Kent for local number in your city, province, or country.)
  2. You will hear: “Welcome to Zoom. Enter your Meeting ID, followed by pound.”
  3. Without hanging up, enter the Meeting ID and “pound” as though it was an extension:
    493 98 42 064 #
  4. It will then say - “Enter your participant ID, followed by pound. Otherwise, just press pound to continue”
  5. You can either press pound (#), or just wait. It will put you into the “room”.

FOR COMPUTER (or computer video and telephone audio)

  1. Click the following link: https://zoom.us/j/4939842064
  2. A page should open in your browser.
    • If you have not used Zoom before, it will tell you that it is going to download. Your browser will probably ask for give it permission - run, save or cancel. Select RUN.
    • Your computer will then install the Zoom app,
  3. You will be brought to the meeting.
  4. It will ask you about audio.
    • If you have a webcam, then the easiest is to say that you are going to use “Join with Computer Audio”.
    • If you don’t have a webcam, then you may choose “Phone Call” from the pop-up box. Use the 438 number that comes up, and follow the instructions for telephone (as above) except now you have a partipant ID number that is shown on the screen
  5. And.... now you are in the meeting. Maximize Zoom to fill your screen, but don't use "full screen"
  6. Oh - enable your video if you have a webcam!
  7. Finally, at the bottom of the screen there is a “Chat” icon. Click on it to open a typed chat column on the right-hand side of your screen.

THIS BECOMES VERY EASY THE SECOND TIME!

For smartphones and tablets

  1. Download and install the Zoom App
  2. You can probably click the following link: +15873281099,,4939842064#
  3. Or I find that it is easier just to open the app and enter the meeting ID: 493 98 42 064
  4. Activate your sound and camera and away we go

WEEKDAY GATHERING -
see a separate posting here for this.


BACKGROUND

We are faced with a very fluid situation - it is our responsibility to monitor situations and change decisions as required.

Your Church Council received the following from the Regional Council Executive.

https://mcusercontent.com/cdc0cf1d3f8a8fb5ab6228426/files/d19c89c7-52a2-...

Given this information, in solidarity with our health care workers, we have decided to reconsider our well-thought-out position and cancel the Sunday morning gatherings until further notice.

However, we are able to use electronic means to reach out to one another. Thus our planned YouTube streaming on Sunday morning.

WE ARE STILL THERE FOR ONE ANOTHER

Further, we remind you that pastoral care and support are available to you: Call or e-mail myself (See contact page) or any other member of the pastoral care team (Don Wood, Annelie Mitsche, Sally Janson, Nancy Warren).

Finally, if anyone in our church community is self-quarantined and needs assitance with shopping and delivery, or even perhaps meal preparation, please contact Don Wood . Of course, if you can volunteer - contact Don as well. Protocol for safety will be provided.
