This note is going to all teens connected with teenEPIC youth group. We are living in unprecedented times! I have spent the last two days praying about and trying to find simple yet effective ways to stay connected and move forward as a youth group.
The last two nights, several people have graciously helped me test some online apps – THANK YOU! I also wanted to line up with what Bob is doing with the adults so we could all get used to the same software, etc. We are going to try Zoom.
Here is a note from Bob’s email this morning:
- Zoom Cloud Meetings
- During the COVID-19 emergency (and perhaps beyond), Lafayette will be hosting a number of Zoom online meetings for classes and small groups. You can prepare for the next Zoom class or group meeting by going to zoom.us and creating a free account. Zoom is also available as an app for your tablet or smartphone at your app store. We have people ready to help those who need some assistance in getting Zoom set up. So if you need help, let me know, and I will direct some help your way.
I was expecting that there wouldn’t be many there tonight because of spring break, so we will not be doing a Romans Study but will just share some thoughts, scripture, and prayer.
If you’re willing to jump in tonight, you will want to set your account up before you try to join the meeting. If you’re on a computer, you will need a camera and a microphone of some kind. Older phones may have an issue using the app. I will go ahead and be in the “room” way ahead of 7 PM if you want to try to join and see if it works – you should be able to come and go whenever.
We’re taking this one day at a time right now but may try to do something for “classes” on Sunday as well. There may still be some kinks to work out, but hopefully, this will keep us connected during this interesting time in history. I think we will come out with some better ways to engage and minister on the other side as well.
Below is the invite info for tonight…hope to “see” you there!
MAKE SURE YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE ACCOUNT…IF MIKE DOESN’T RECOGNIZE YOUR NAME YOU WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO THE ROOM.
