During this time of physical distancing, it is more important than ever to maintain our social ties to our communities. This is why we will be taking our Social Hour online, starting Sunday, April 5th!
Join us on Zoom after Sunday service for an opportunity to chat in small groups with friendly faces that you would usually see in Bard Hall or on the Patio. Feel free to bring your own mug of coffee or tea to sip while connecting with folks.
The Social Hour meeting will begin at 10:30, using the meeting ID 824-042-297. This meeting will require a different password each week, which will be communicated during the Sunday Service Live Stream - so stay tuned! If you have trouble accessing the meeting, please contact Jenner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Zoom meeting will include the use of Breakout Rooms so that we have an opportunity to talk in small, randomized groups and can avoid the chaos of all being in the same meeting at once! Please see the below tips (courtesy of Rev. Sharon Wylie from Chalice UU Congregation) that should help you navigate this new method of doing Social Hour in a way that is enjoyable for all!
Tips for Attending Sunday Social Hour
Attending a Zoom meeting means you need to see and hear what’s happening—fairly simple for anyone who is comfortable watching videos on YouTube or other places online.
Attending coffee hour on Zoom means that other people need to hear—and hopefully see—YOU. A bit trickier.
If you need to set up Zoom on your computer, follow the instructions for Zoom Setup here.
Test Your Computer
Hopefully, your computer has a built-in camera and microphone. If you aren’t sure, please give yourself time to test it before Sunday.
