Do you enjoy chatting? Then consider being the Sunday Zoom Host - greet those who worship via Zoom and facilitate the post-worship talk story session among Zoom participants. The Zoom host will sign in to the worship meeting on Zoom about 10 minutes before the service begins. The AV Tech will make the Zoom host a co-host so that they can admit worshippers from the virtual waiting room. The host can greet Zoom participants verbally or via chat. The host will monitor the chat box during worship. Following worship the host will get the online talk story session rolling. The Zoom Worship Host is an ideal volunteer opportunity for those who regularly worship via Zoom.
If you are willing to serve as Zoom host (or in any other volunteer capacity) on selected Sundays, please email Anne Marie Murphy to be added to the monthly volunteer invitation. The invitation is an email with a link to sign up on the virtual clipboard. When you volunteer you will receive an email reminder about your role a few days in advance.
