ZOOM! What is it and how do we use it?
By now you have seen a lot of information coming out from the church about ZOOM meetings and upcoming Sunday School and check-in opportunities via ZOOM. ZOOM is a video software that lets us host digital meetings with multiple people. It is a beautiful program that can be used for FREE to help us connect during these challenging times. There are a few ways to use ZOOM:
1) Smartphone- ZOOM has an app that you can easily download. Just set up an account (again, for FREE) and you will be able to access any future ZOOM calls as they come. The App will use your phones camera and microphone as a way to communicate with your group.
2) Laptop/Desktop- You can go to ZOOM! and download the software for FREE! ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: If your laptop or desktop DOES NOT have a built-in camera or microphone, you will NOT be able to talk or be seen. MOST newer laptops have these features already built-in but please be aware of that.
3) iPad or another tablet- Again, there is an app that is easy to set up and run the program from.
ALSO, if you are having any issues, ZOOM has some wonderful resources to on their support page which can be found HERE!
I am happy to help out wherever I can as we all try to communicate during our time away from each other. Please feel free to email, call, or text me. I will do my best to respond in a timely fashion.
