Worship Info for 8/9/2020

Worship Info for 8/9/2020
Plus How To Log Into Our New Worship Platform!!

Greetings friends!!
Tomorrow morning we will roll out our new online platform for Worship. We will no longer use Facebook Live OR our previous web link. Everyone will go to the same place to join us for worship!! We will begin our live stream at about 9:15 and will share some tips about the new platform at that time. The prelude will begin at 9:25 AM. Here’s what you need to know to access worship tomorrow morning:
Option 1: 

  1. Go to our websitesongoflifeumc.org and click on the pink button called Worship Info. You will be directed to a new page with additional information and links.
  2. Click on the PURPLE button that says Click here for Online Worship...AND YOU’RE IN!!!
  3. When you see the “Play” Button in the middle of the screen (it may or may not be red), click on it to begin viewing the live stream.
  4. From this page you’ll be able to access your Digital Bulletin, Register your Attendance, Access the Online Calendar, and go to our Online Giving page. There’s also a separate Prayer Request button you can use to share a prayer request with us, AND there’s online chat!! Tomorrow morning we’ll share a few more of the features before we begin worship, so tune in early!!

I also want to remind our families with young children…we will have Children’s Church via Zoom right after worship. The Zoom log-in information is below. Here is the handout for this week’s lesson: HOPE for Kids, Week 2 (Grown-ups: here’s a Family Connection Guide for families with children as well: HOPE for Kids Family Connection Guide Week 2

For our SoL Kids & Teens attending Area 412, here are your handouts as well: HOPE for Students, Week 2 and HOPE for Students Family Connection Guide

Do you miss seeing some of your church family members?? Why not join us for our Meet & Greet at 8:30 am on Sunday morning?? This Zoom meeting is open to all. See below for login information.

Here’s what you need for Sunday. Our worship service will begin with our Prelude at 9:25 AM and will be broadcast using our new online platform. See above for instructions, tips and tricks

Here’s Your Digital Bulletin for Sunday morning! 

Please Register Your Attendance!
With this new online platform, registering your attendance is more important than ever before. So even if you don’t want us to know you are worshiping with us, please register anyway!! We’d like to be sure we get an accurate count.

Registering your attendance is even easier than before!! 
1. When you enter the new online worship platform you’ll see some links in the upper right hand corner. Click on the one called “Connection Card” and it will automatically bring up our Attendance Registration form. You can still use this form to share prayer requests with us as well.
2. If you have our SoL Church Center App on your phone, tap on the “Check In” at the bottom of the home screen and follow the prompts. (The App can be downloaded to your phone by going to the App Store or Google Play.) You can check-in yourself and your family members just like we’ve been doing for the last 9 months in person at SoL. The difference is…NO BARCODE TO SCAN!! Please remember: this option does not allow you to include any prayer requests.

Also, please remember, if you view the worship service after the fact (like on Sunday afternoon or during the week), please register your attendance by clicking on the “Connection Card” link.

SoL Meet & Greet via Zoom
We highly encourage you to join us for this Meet & Greet time before worship tomorrow morning!! The folks who have been attending have asked about some of you they would like to see but haven’t. What’s more, the Toppings also join in, so you can get a behind-the-scenes look at us as we finish preparations for worship! We’ll log in at about 8:15, but the Meet and Greet won’t begin until 8:30 AM. Please note: All of our Zoom meetings now require Passcodes, which are indicated with each meeting. (Zoom info was in the original email)

Our financial gifts are an important way we demonstrate our gratitude to God for the many gifts God has given to us. At SoL, we receive financial gifts by cash, check, or by electronic means. We strongly encourage you to use our electronic giving processes (accessible through our website, Church Center app, or by Text2Give), but we also recognize some prefer to give via cash or check. For more information on our e-giving processes, please go to our website at songoflifeumc.org/give. To give via cash or check during this time when we are not meeting for worship in person, you may bring or mail your financial gifts to the church at 20164 S. Sossaman Rd, Queen Creek, AZ 85142. If you bring your gift at a time the office is not occupied, please leave it in the secure mailbox, which is near the office, next to the area with the 4 benches.

Koinonia/Bible Buddies Study Group
This combined study group meets at about 11 AM via Zoom. If you would like further information, please feel free to contact either Joe Hauer at  or Dean Wolfahrt at . Please remember, this is an open group and all adults are invited to attend. (Zoom info was in original email)
