Saturday Greetings,

If your day is open there is still time to register for the Annual Gathering of the Alliance of Baptists which begins this morning at 9:00. The proclaimers are Michael-Ray Mathews and Nancy Hastings Sehested. Ashley Ash represents us on the Alliance Board.

Join your Alliance family and friends for a 90-minute call (9:00 a.m. PST/12:00 p.m. EST) focused on mutual care, spiritual reflection and prophetic action in the face of a global pandemic and national crisis. Using Zoom video-conferencing technology, we will create spaces for small group conversations, corporate worship, and call to solidarity and action with our partners. Register here.

If you prefer something with a little later start Pastor Carolyn leads “A Time For Prayer” at 10:00.

Thanks to Pastor Carolyn for forwarding me this information about using Zoom. If you are finding Zoom to be a little puzzling the links might be helpful.


Below are links to short tutorials to get you started with Zoom (under 2 minutes each).

Easy to follow TUTORIALS (from Zoom.com):

There are two ways to join meeting audio, joining via computer or joining via telephone. Follow these sections to test your audio before or after joining a meeting.

You can also join a test meeting if you want to test your audio and familiarize yourself with meeting controls.

See you at Zoom Church tomorrow. (You might want to try connecting a little early because Zoom is doing some security upgrades this weekend that might have some impact when signing in.)
