“We are the Church” Online Gatherings
Link for Saturday, June 6: https://meet.google.com/tfd-aqgf-jrn

Note: Gatherings last 1 hour. Also, We strongly recommend that households only login using one device as home internet services often cannot handle multiple connections. 
Please keep yourself muted until you want to speak. This way it makes the audio better over all and helps us from talking over each other and not being able to hear what the person says.
