Vespers Worship

Worship Online

The coronavirus may be forcing us to suspend our normal in-person worship services at Storrs Congregational, but that does not mean that we will stop our worship of God!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 10:00 am and Wednesday evening Vespers at 7:00 pm. These services are offered as an interactive Zoom video call. To participate on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, use the button below. If you already have the Zoom client on your device (“Zoom Cloud Meetings” in the App Store), you can enter the Meeting ID and join.

Click this button to access worship on the Zoom platform:

Meeting ID: 767-627-7441
Password: 722786777 (spells “SCCStorrs” on a telephone keypad)

If this is your first time using Zoom, we recommend joining a few minutes early so that you can get the software up and running. For best results, use a device with an internal camera or webcam of some sort, and a pair of headphones.


Alternative Method – Watch via YouTube

If you are unable to use Zoom for whatever reason, you can watch a livestream of the service below, via YouTube. Please note that if you join using the YouTube livestream, you will not be able to participate in the interactive parts of the service.

The video inset here is the YouTube stream.
Click the red button further up on the page to participate via Zoom.

Worship Orders (bulletins)

For our Sunday morning worship services, you can download a conventional-format worship order (a.k.a. bulletin), if you’d prefer to follow along with the service in that way. These worship orders can be viewed on-screen on your computer or device, or they can even be printed. Note that the use of these downloads is not required for participating in the service, as all of the content that worshipers need will also be provided on-screen in the video itself.


Archive

You can view our past worship services at our YouTube channel:

Beginning March 18th, the archive contains complete videos of our livestreamed online worship services (conducted in lieu of in-person gatherings for worship due to COVID-19), including both Sunday morning worship and Wednesday Vespers. Prior to that date, our archive videos feature the scripture, children’s message, and sermon portions of our Sunday worship services.

“Oh worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
Bow down before God, God’s glory proclaim!”

    I thought I was on Zoom. Followed and participated in the entire service. I could not see a button to type in a prayer request. The last people I saw at the start of Fellowship were Kathy & Darrel and then a square with Annmaries’s IPad.
    Thanks Matt and everyone or a meaningful service!
    Peace,
    Marshs

    Humm,
    Marsha Creese – Dick and I were on our Zoom Service today but I did not see you. Glad you could see the service though. Yes. During the extended time for our Remote Coffee fellowship we were separated into several different “rooms” and could “visit” Hoping you are doing well. I know it must have been hard to cancel the Palm Sunday Brunch but we all know it had to be done. Just for your information Dick and I are already talking about making “cheesy grits” and bacan next Sunday for ourselves!. We’ll post a picture..and have an orange joice toast with you. Sending prayers that you and your whole family are safe and that the HOPE that we see with the spring flowers blooming will support you and give you comfort in these times of social distancing and worry.
    With love from your Caring Caring Connection – Pam and Dick Roberts

    Hoping that you could still do a sunrise service at the cemetery if we stayed 6 feet apart ( we would be outside and there would be enough space)

      Alas, sorry… we’re erring on the side of caution and not doing anything that encourages people to break from the “stay at home” practices. Even with the space and outdoor setting, it still encourages folks to leave home and — people being people — they’ll ‘congregate’ even when we tell them not to. And this is especially important over the next couple of weeks, a very critical time in terms of the “curve” of virus transmissions and infections. Sorry!
