Virtual Connections at CBI

Virtual Connections at CBI

Campus may be (physically) closed but we are always still here with you.

Your CBI clergy, staff, and lay leaders are working on a rich array of religious, educational, and social programming in the days ahead.

Some of the programs will be webcast.
Some will appear on our Facebook page via Facebook Live.
Others use an online meeting platform called Zoom.

For those unfamiliar with Zoom or our webcast (or for those in need of a refresher), we have created brief instructional videos.

Zoom, the platform we use for many of our virtual connections, has updated their policy to require that all meetings have passwords. For privacy, we are sharing passwords only in our weekly Beneath Our Dome and Virtual Connections emails; if you are not already receiving these emails, please sign up today. If you are interested in the password for a specific event, email the CBI Main Office
