Below are the the instructions for downloading Zoom and joining the Bible study live.
Participate Live Through Zoom
This method allows you to join Jeff live during the Bible study, see your fellow attendees, and submit questions or notes to Jeff through the chat function. This method also allows Jeff to see that you are in the list of attendees and optionally on video, which is a real encouragement!
Getting Ready: Many have already downloaded Zoom for school, work, or other virtual gatherings, but if you have not previously downloaded this program, visit zoom.us/download. This website has the links to download the program for your computer, tablet, or smartphone. We recommend joining through a computer, if possible.
Once you've downloaded Zoom for your device, visit zoom.us/test to practice joining a meeting. You may also consider signing up for a free Zoom account at zoom.us/signup. Although an account is not required to access the Bible study meeting, it tends to make accessing the study easier.
Joining the Bible study on Thursday:
1 - A few minutes before noon on Thursday, click this link to join the Zoom meeting:
2 - The link will open a new tab in your internet browser and a pop-up will appear. On that pop-up, click "Open zoom.us" or "Allow" (see picture below). This will open the Bible study meeting in the Zoom program you downloaded.
3 - We would love for you to join the meeting with your video on (so Jeff and others can see you!) but we are happy to have you either way! We will be placing everyone on mute so that only the audio from Jeff will be heard. You will be able to submit chat messages to Jeff during the Bible study through this platform.
