Immigration & Migrant Crisis Resources

Trinity UMC will be offering an online opportunity through Zoom video.  This will allow for us to join worship services, adult class sessions, and other events by video from our computers or tablets or smart phones.  For those who do not have access to a computer, tablet, or smart phone, there is also a phone-call option where you can simply call into the gathering from their cell-phone or landline and hear the audio portion of the service or event.

Tips for a Good Zoom Gathering:

.

  1. — Click the zoom link 5 minutes before the gathering begins, in order to familiarize yourself with the controls and iron our any kinks. This link is located under the Join Zoom Meeting heading in the invitation. The default setting for when you join the gathering is for your video to be on and your audio muted. You can change these settings once you’ve joined the meeting.
    .
  2. — If you have trouble with audio or video, you can always default to the conference call option.  
    .
  3. — Take care to mute yourself when you are not speaking.  This cuts down on feedback and background noise. The hosts have the power to mute and will use it from time to time when appropriate.  Also, be sure to unmute yourself when you speak.
    .
  4. — You will see a “chat” feature along the bottom of your screen.  Use the chat feature to ask questions. This cuts down on interruptions and helps the flow of the gathering. We will also be using the chat feature to collect prayers during worship.
    .
  5. — Take note of the multiple ways you can switch screen views.  You can choose between a “brady bunch” view of many people on your screen or a “presenter” view of the active speaker filling your screen. At times we will be sharing our computer screens with you for parts of worship. If your zoom window covers content you should be able to click and drag it out of the way.
