As we are thrust into a time of social distancing, isolation, and stay-at-home mandates, communicating effectively means getting a handle on the internet, and exploring different avenues. We are thrilled that so many clergy have embraced the challenge and are trying out live online worship sessions, virtual study classes, and meeting with their lay leaders through Zoom and Facebook Live.
The Communications Design Team invites all clergy and lay leaders to share your tips and ideas for a better online experience, whether itʻs with Facebook Live, Zoom, YouTube, or any other platform you are finding success with.
Please share in the comments. We are planning to create a collective "Tip" sheet for everyone to use. We have a running tip column next to this blog feed so you can see whatʻs already been shared, or to expand on any suggestion.
Please share your input by Tuesday, March 31, 2020. Thatʻll give you another Sunday service to experiment with, and weʻll get a tip sheet out to you as soon as possible!

Mute yourself until you need to say something.
Make sure to have your camera in the horizontal position BEFORE you go live OR you might be broadcasting sideways!
