We need your help in letting Friends in your Meeting/Worship Group know that they are warmly invited to join us, Canadian Friends Service Committee’s Clerks Lana Robinson and Vince Zelazny, for a weekly Meeting for Worship via Zoom.

CFSC hopes to provide an opportunity for Friends across the country to stay connected and to worshipfully reflect on service and community during these difficult times.

A 30 minute Meeting for Worship will be held each Wednesday for the foreseeable future at: 7:30 am Pacific Time, 8:30 am Mountain Time, 9:30 am Central Time, 10:30 am Eastern Time, 11:30 am Atlantic Time.

The 30 minutes of worship will be followed by 30 minutes of sharing.

To join, use this link (note that Zoom will ask you to download it onto your device if you do not already have it when you click this link, it will provide you with easy steps to follow in order to do this): zoom.us/j/981698440

We know that this form of worship and sharing is new. We ask that you take a minute to go over these points of 'Zoom etiquette' before joining:

If you arrive late, please mute yourself and participate as a silent observer until the facilitator finishes up whatever is happening and has a chance to welcome you.

If you have to leave early, you will see that there is a 'chat box' where you can type in to let us know that you are leaving early and not just disappearing on us because of a technical issue.

When you are not speaking, please mute yourself to prevent the rest of us from being distracted by any background noise in your environment.

If you have to walk from one place to another or otherwise move around with your smart phone or your computer, please 'stop' your video so that the rest of us don't get sea-sick.

Zoom meetings are fairly easy to get used to, but it is technology and can trigger anxiety for those of us who are technologically challenged. Deep breathing, patience, and treating this as an intercultural learning opportunity are helpful antidotes to anxiety triggered by trying to figure out this new technology.

If all else fails, try turning off your computer, restarting, and signing in again. You can also learn more about joining Zoom meetings here: support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/115002262083-Joining-a-Test-Meeting

We look forward to sharing in worship with you!
