Virtual Worship Etiquette Tips

In our first effort to do our Sunday Service on-line we had a few glitches that we believe we have now fixed.  So, please, give us another try!  We are all learning how to do this, so please don’t worry if any mistakes are made.

  • Please keep your microphone muted. The Meeting Host (Pastor Renfrew) will do that for you by “mute all”, but just in case click on the microphone logo at the bottom left corner of the Zoom screen. You will then see a red slash mark over the microphone logo.
  • To mute your telephone please type “*6” and that

should take care of it.  Do it again and you will be


  • If you are in your jammies it is OK to defeat the video display of your beautiful face. Look for the “video” logo just to the right of the microphone logo, click and we will no longer see you, though you can see us, and we will still be able to hear you.
