In-Person Gatherings Suspended; Worship Moves Online

In-Person Gatherings Suspended; Worship Moves Online

To do our part in “flattening the curve” of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, worship services held in our building will be discontinued from Sunday, March 15, 2020 until further notice. The building will also be closed to all users and activities except for the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter and the Cambridge Interfaith Sanctuary Coalition.

But there is good news: worship is moving online! We will offer a Sunday service at 10:30 am that can be accessed remotely. Think of this as “house worship,” where we are all in our homes connected through the magic of technology.

For the service, we will use Zoom, a video conferencing platform that allows participants to see and/or hear each other via the Internet. Use your computer, smartphone, or “regular” phone to connect using the instructions below.

For general information on using Zoom, visit “How Do I Join a Meeting?” on the Zoom website.
