I don't think small groups must to be focused around physical proximity. We are organizing smaller groups based on activities/friend groups which already exist. We're calling them Check In Groups and I'm asking one person to check in with all the members of each group at least weekly to keep track of concerns, prayers, updates, etc.

DS Brian suggested something about automated phone bank calls for prayer hear messages from their own Pastor's voice (something like we receive calls from schools)

From the Zoom website: A Participant is an invitee in a meeting scheduled by someone with a Host license. Participants can join your meeting for free from their phone, desktop, mobile and tablet devices. A participant does not require a Zoom account in order to join a meeting.

The free Zoom account doesn't offer the option for participants to phone in at this time. You'll need the paid subscription if everyone doesn't have computer/smartphone capability.

Are we good if we are playing music from the hymnal online?

I thought UMPH gave permission a couple of days ago
Scott H
01:25:14
But you cannot preemptively tell Facebook you have a CCLI streaming license. If they take down your video, then you can tell them
