Directions to join us by Zoom for worship on Sundays at 10:30 am.
We are getting Back to Normal Public Schools are open in-person, with no social distancing and no facemasks required. Sports stadiums are full. Restaurants are thriving again. The latest Broadway musicals are packed, with no Covid or masking requirements.
Here at Payson Park Church, masks are optional during worship if you are fully vaccinated or have a recent negative test, and are symptom free. While we want everyone to enjoy all of the programs and services of the church, we ask you to please stay home if you are not feeling well.
After two years of collective action to mitigate our shared risk, this is a time to acknowledge that, while COVID is not going away, we each have many tools to keep ourselves safe and we will allow each individual to make choices aligned with their own risk tolerance. We know that everyone is coming back into our physical church community at different speeds and comfort levels, and celebrate that we are each transitioning at our own pace.
In addition to ventilation, we have also added a medical grade 13 HEPA Air Purifier (used in hospitals), with instantaneous feedback on air quality.
You may also dial in from your phone for voice only: +1 929 205 6099 US (New York) or +1 301 715 8592 US (Washington DC) Meeting ID: 731 445 091
Will I be able to see what's happening? Will people see me? If you have a screen on your computer or phone, you will be able to see the participants in worship (e.g. - Pastor Eric). Also we will allow your face to pop up when you speak, but otherwise, please keep your "mute" button on. You may also choose not to show yourself.
Can I speak? For much of the service, everyone will be muted to limit background noise. However, you can unmute yourself to make an announcement, or share a joy or concern during our Prayers of the People.
Do I need an account? No. Tablets and smartphones will have to download an app, and some computers may have to download a small app as well, but you do not have to create an account, give them your email, or anything burdensome. It is part of why Zoom is so popular.
What if I have technical issues? If you have trouble with the computer, switch to the phone and dial in.
