How to view our worship services online using Zoom

Step 1. Set Up Zoom

Setting Up On a Mobile Device

  • You do not need a Zoom account (but please know that accounts are free).
  • For a smart phone or tablet, look for the Zoom app in the app store and download.
    • “Zoom Cloud Meetings”–it’s free.
    • “Zoom for Blackberry” for Blackberry users–also free.
  • When it’s time for your meeting or worship, launch the app and click “Join a Meeting.” Enter the meeting ID in order to access the meeting or worship.

Setting Up On a Computer

  • You do not need a Zoom account (but please know that accounts are free).
  • Go to this page and download “Zoom Client for Meetings.”
  • Find “Zoom.pkg” (or something similar, like “Zoom.exe”) in your downloads and double-click it to install the application.
  • When it’s time for your meeting or worship, launch the Zoom application and click “Join a Meeting.” Enter the meeting ID in order to access the meeting or worship.

Step 2. Test on Saturday

We will have two opportunities before the first Sunday for you to “join a meeting” to see if your software is working correctly (meaning you can see and hear):

Saturday, March 14 from 9-10 am
Saturday, March 14 from 5-6 pm

Join Zoom Meeting https://uuma.zoom.us/j/123054867
The meeting ID is 123 054 867.

After March 14, you can test Zoom by entering worship at 9:30 am. Worship begins at 10 am.

Step 3. Attend worship!

Before Worship

  • You might like to light your own chalice, so consider setting that up where you will be watching worship.
  • You might also like to light candles of joy and sorrow, so consider setting those up as well.

Worship Times

Our worship happens using Zoom’s “webinar” format. When:

  • Mar 15, 2020 10:00 AM (webinar “opens” at 9:30 am)

  • Mar 29, 2020 10:00 AM (webinar “opens” at 9:30 am)

Logging Onto Zoom

  • Please “join a meeting” by entering the ID: 832 129 662 or click to join the webinar:
    https://uuma.zoom.us/j/832129662
  • Please create a screen name that shows your real name.

Tips During Worship

  • Once you join the worship, you will be muted, so you don’t need to worry about people hearing you talking.
  • You will be invited to use the chat, so look for the chat button. IMPORTANT: Make sure you send your chat comments to “panelists and attendees.”
  • If you need to “rename” yourself (change the name that shows up for you), click on “participants” from your menu, click on yourself, and the option to “rename” should come up.
  • If you get a notice of “internet unstable,” that means YOUR internet is unstable. If you get that message while your video is on, turning your video off can sometimes help.
