Using Zoom to church is pretty simple. But we know some of you have may need some help to use technology so we’ve put together our own step-by-step guide.

The first time you click this link you’ll be taken to this page. Click on “Download from Google Play” or “Download from App Store” depending on your phone or tablet. Then click “Install” and wait for the App to install.
At this point its best to go back to your email and click the link again and you will be at step 3.
