INSTRUCTIONS – Revised 4/8/20

Zoom Meetings:

With the recent upgrades to Zoom security, and in light of the Zoom-bombing that occurred during the Bible study this week, all of our more public Zoom meetings will now require passwords. Many of these meetings are recurring and the same Password is used for these meetings each week. When these meetings expire, there will be new links and new passwords. The links to the meetings will continue to be published, but the passwords will be removed.

First – if you enter by computer, tablet, Kindle, Smartphone, do what you always do – follow the link provided. (On-going meetings have the same link for multiple weeks, and Rev. Janice will alert you when a new link is needed). If you enter by non-smart phone or landline, you will dial in as usual, and then you will need to enter the meeting password.

Join Zoom Meeting: example https://zoom.us/j/162506373, or call phone 1-929-205-6099 Meeting ID: example 162 506 373. NOTE that the meeting ID is the numbers found in the “address”Password: example 123456. Again – call or text if you have an issue. Also, there is no local number to call for Zoom meeting, so yes, long distance charges do apply.

Second – if you enter the meeting before the moderator does, you will find yourself in a waiting room. Just hang out and wait. This is the second level of security, as Rev. Janice will then “open the door” and “let you in” to the meeting, and then close it again. What this means is that we will be in need of a second person to be a co-moderator, especially during worship, as it is difficult to do both at the same time. If you would like to volunteer, let me know. Remember, there is always grace! Zoom meetings all have the same instructions except that the Links, Meeting Identification Numbers (ID’s) and Passwords will change. We will note the data that changes in the corresponding event above.

Standard instructions follow:

-From your computer, tablet or smartphone, for visual and audio,
Click on the link to join the Zoom meeting: example https://zoom.us/j/123456789 Input the Meeting ID: example 123 456 789Input the password: example 123456


– From your telephone or cell phone, for audio only, dial by your location:

1-929-205-6099 US (New York)
Input the Meeting ID: example 123 456 789
Input the password: example 123456
Please Note: Depending on your phone plan, long-distance charges may apply.

To Leave a Telephone Message at the HUPC Office:

  1. Dial HUPC at 518-456-5410
  2. To skip the opening message, you may dial an extension at any time:

    (Or you can listen to the entire message and input the extension at the end.)
  3. When you reach the individual mailbox, press * to skip the message, and wait 5 seconds for the beep.
