  8. Zoom Live Worship: We will continue trying out live sermons through Zoom (Meeting ID: 384 693 6909).  For now both Zoom and Youtube will be available, but our eventual goal is to transition to just Zoom.  Note: We will mute everyone and ask everyone to turn off the camera when service starts, so that we do not end up streaming anyone on Youtube without consent.  During sermon if the speaker asks questions or wants to interact, you can unmute yourself to answer (but keep your camera off unless you want your face to show up on Youtube).  After service, we can all unmute and turn on cameras so we can have some “hang out” time.
