Each participating ministry has a unique Zoom link as part of the listing below. Click on the Zoom link to “visit the booth.”
Once you have entered the virtual “booth” space you will have the opportunity to chat with people, gather resources and get your questions about that ministry answered. You can stay for a long as you want. When you leave the booth, revisit this page and choose another booth’s zoom link. Visit as many booths as you wish. The Zoom links for the booths will be open 2:30-3:30 p.m. (CDT).
Please turn your camera on and unmute your microphone. Having your camera on allows you to more easily interact with your meeting colleagues and enhances the overall meeting experience.
Visit as many booths as possible. Take the opportunity to visit the booths and get the resources you need to take back to your local congregations. This is your time to glean information that can help you connect, learn about new virtual practices and say “hi” to your friends.
