We would like to remind our Zoom attendees to please mute your microphones during the service so as to reduce background noise (you are, of course, free to un-mute your microphone if you are reading or leading a prayer, or asking/answering a question).  If you cannot mute your microphone, than we ask that you please be very quiet during the service.  We also ask that, when conversing, you speak slowly and try to avoid talking over anyone else.

See Minister's Message and link to bulletin.  We are still trying new and better ways to provide our worship experience.  Thanks for your patience and support.
