Wondering how to conduct online worship? Here you'll find some technology tools to help your work, learn, and worship online.

The first is a best practice video on using Zoom for meetings—this includes how best to use the polls and breakout room functions. No matter your comfort level, we think you will learn something new!

And the second video is a short interview with the Rev. Laura Blank '13, pastor of Pleasant View Presbyterian Church in Smock, Pa. Laura and the Rev. Erin Davenport '05, director of strategic initiatives and special projects, discuss best practices and ideas for virtual worship services. 

We hope that these videos and our support of your ministry in the midst of this trying time give you a bit of encouragement today! We will be releasing more technology videos in the coming weeks and months so check back.
