Dear St. John's,

You are invited to join us on Wednesday nights for online Evening Prayer at 6:30 p.m. We are using a format which allows you to participate a couple of different ways. The plan is to continue doing this each Wednesday for the foreseeable future. 


To follow along with the service, click on this link:  Evening Prayer Bulletin


You can watch Evening Prayer on Facebook Live just like we have been doing. To do that, go to the St. John the Baptist Facebook page at 6:30 p.m.


Or, if you would like to interact with one another and see each other, log in the Zoom meeting with us. We will be streaming the Zoom meeting directly to Facebook Live. We will have Evening Prayer with a reflection for about 30 minutes. After that, we will have plenty of time for those on Zoom to visit, catch up with each other, show off pets and houseplants, and share a cup of tea.


Here is the link to the Zoom meeting where you can join us for Evening Prayer and Virtual Coffee Hour:  https://zoom.us/j/229332884


The two biggest tricks we learned last week are these; once you join the Zoom call, you must click "join with video" and click "join with audio" so that we can both see and hear you. 


When you click on the link above you will be prompted to download the zoom app, which will enable you to attend the meeting. If you would like to prepare in advance you can download the app here: https://zoom.us/download.


You can watch a video about how to join a meeting here:

If you are struggling with the technology, don't get frustrated. Let us know! We are here to help. It can certainly feel overwhelming at first. We know, because we are overwhelmed too. Call or email if you need help figuring out Zoom (before 6p.m. please!) at: 206-605-7746 or revwesch@sjbwestseattle.org


I look forward to seeing you tonight!


Blessings,

Kate +
