Online Meeting for Worship


Dear Friends and those interested in our Meeting,

San Jose Friends Meeting will have regularly scheduled Meeting for Worship on-line. On Sundays, the virtual “Meeting House” will be open from 0930 to 1130 on-line.  Actual Meeting for Worship will be the normal 10:00 to 11:00 am on-line, with time before and after for greeting, chat, and social interaction.  I have not figured out “virtual” coffee or snacks.

The 30 minutes prior to Meeting is a good time to set up your computer’s audio and video because you can interact with someone live at that time. When you register for the Meeting below, you will get the information you need to join in an invitation with links for the meeting.  Use the link below to register.  I recommend that you visit zoom.com and look at the tutorial for Zoom on-line meetings. Please don’t wait until the last minute to set up your computer for the Meeting and don’t stress out too much because these meetings are pretty easy to do.  If you have a noisy background, please mute your microphone (see tutorial) once you are set up and at the meeting.

If the COVID-19 situation resolves or becomes worse, these on-line Meeting for Worship dates (see above) may be cancelled or extended.  There are issues to discuss about how to hold Meeting for Worship with attention to Business, nominations for Meeting Committees, Clerks and other Meeting business, community outreach, etc.  I welcome your thoughts on these items, please participate because your opinion matters.  Right now we are looking at how to accomplish Meeting for Business on line.  You are encouraged to provide your guidance and experience.

Currently the other users of the Meeting House and Harmony Hall are not meeting due to public meeting bans by the city and state. If you need to get into the Meeting House, Harmony Hall or Brinton House, for any reason, please contact Tessa Hunter by email at sjfmresident@gmail.com or at the Meeting House phone 408-648-4222 before you go there.  Don’t forget to knock on the door at Brinton House, if you visit, so you don’t surprise Tessa and Charlotte.

If you care to donate or to send your regular donation to the San Jose Meeting, please mail donations to San Jose Friends Meeting, 1041 Morse Street, San Jose, CA 95126.
