NOTES ABOUT ZOOM: Each event via Zoom has a unique Meeting ID and Link. Please click the link next to the specific event you wish to join. Check back frequently as new events are added! You will have to download the Zoom browser extension or app and set up a free account (or log in with Facebook) the first time you join a Zoom meeting. The Google Chrome browser does not work well with Zoom, per our experience.

If you prefer to join Zoom meetings and classes over the phone: call (312) 626-6799, and enter the meeting number, followed by #. The meeting number is in parentheses after each event (Ex: 123-456-789).

Don’t have a Facebook account? You can still view our online events! Click here for instructions.

Our clergy and staff are here for you. If you have questions about accessing our content, reach out to our Executive Director, Jeff Baden (jbaden@nssbethel.org). Our clergy are accessible via email as well and are happy to connect with you by email, on the phone, or over video conference.

We wish you good health and look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our community!
