Using Zoom to Stay Connected

Have you “Zoomed” yet?

As we at Romney Presbyterian work to stay connected, the church is holding online, virtual meetings using the Zoom software. Zoom is free for you to use, and does not require you to create an account. We do, however, suggest you install the Zoom app on your device because the web browser method has been unreliable.

You can check the church Facebook page or online calendar for information about when we’ll have meetings, bible studies, even office hour drop-ins with Pastor Rob. We will also be using Zoom to hold worship Sunday mornings. Pastor Rob will open the “room” at 10:30 am, and will leave it open for at least 30 minutes after worship to allow time for socializing. You can always join us for worship or other scheduled meetings using the link below:

If your internet connection is unreliable, or you simply prefer to join by phone, you can use a telephone to call into our meetings.

To call in, first dial: 301-715-8592

then, when prompted, please type in our meeting ID number, 304-822-5083

then enter the password, 100

Remember, you do not need to create an account for Zoom to take part in a meeting that you are invited to or have been given the link for.

Tips for using Zoom video conferencing

Important things to remember

1. You do not need an account for Zoom to use it.

We will email the link for worship every week. Starting this March 29, that link will not change.

2. You do not have be on video to take part in a Zoom meeting. Some folks are understandably camera shy. When using Zoom, there is an option to share your voice and audio only.

3. We do not recommend using the browser version of Zoom, but it is available. We hear it is the most stable on Chrome.

4. Our Zoom meetings also have a phone in option, if you do not have internet access or do not wish to use your computer.

If you would like to set up an appointment with Pastor Rob to get help on using Zoom, please call the church office at 3041-822-5083 and leave a message.
