Zoom is very user friendly. It can be used on a laptop, iPad, smart phone, or even a desktop that has a camera and microphone. If you’ll be using it on your mobile device or iPad, you must download that app first. Once you have done that, you just have to click the link sent to you by your group or Sunday school leader for the zoom meeting and it will take you to the meeting. You can also enter the “Meeting ID” which will also be sent to you. When doing this, it will ask you:
· Can Zoom access your camera? (Say yes, or ok)
· Can Zoom access your microphone? (Say yes, or ok)
· Can Zoom send you push notifications? (Up to you, not necessary)
· Audio: click “Join using computer audio”
If anybody in your group would prefer to call in and do it as a telephone conference instead of using video on their computer, phone, or tablet, they can do that by calling 1-346-248-7799 and entering the Meeting ID sent to you.
*NOTE - You will be contacted by your Sunday School or Bible Study leader with the zoom link to access the zoom meeting.

I am also a huge fan of Seedbed’s Seven Minute Seminary I love watching incredible professors explain difficult concepts in seven minutes.
