Online Worship Access Instructions
A message from Rev. Jim and Victor
Dear Members and Friends of CCEH,
This Sunday, April 5, is our third Sunday of moving to an online worship format. Thanks to all for you enthusiastic participation! We’re all trying to make the best of a very challenging situation, while trying our best to keep our hearts and spirits connected with each other and with God.
Online worship access instructions (NOTE: The Zoom code has changed from previous online Zoom worship services. The new Zoom code below will be the same for all subsequent CCEH worship services (including Maundy Thursday) until we worship again in person. This is for security reasons so as to limit the cyberspace exposure of my personal Zoom code, which is the one we’ve been using.
If you’re joining our online worship for the first time, Zoom is rather like Skype, only simpler and easier to use. Simply copy and paste the below link into your Internet browser, and Zoom will take it from there. It will lead you through a simple process of installing the Zoom application on your computer.
Please note also that Zoom provides telephone access to our session in case you don’t have access to a computer, or your computer’s sound isn’t working well, etc.
Being the first Sunday of the month, we share Holy Communion in our online interactive worship. We’ll have a Children’s Message this Sunday!
Before the time of the service you will want to make some preparations:
1. Prepare your “palm” – Since we won’t have church-supplied palms this year, I suggest we invite people to bring their own “palm” – a flower, a small pine branch, etc.
2. Prepare your Communion elements –
Prepare some bread, a slice or a small loaf of any kind of bread. Tortilla or rice cake is fine too. Let it be something you alone or you with others in your house may break and share. Prepare a cup or cups of juice — perhaps grape or cranberry — or wine, with or without alcohol.
Set these elements in the living room or kitchen where you experience worship electronically with our faith community. Perhaps you want to put them on a lovely cloth or fabric that reminds you of a special time or a person deeply connected with you in the communion of saints. Perhaps you will light a candle or place a flower or plant or the photograph of someone you wish to bring into the circle of faith beside the bread and the cup. Thank you for your preparation.
