My fiance and I have moved relatively recently (going on 2 years ago now), and, during the pandemic, we've gone back to worshiping with our previous congregation (which is actually where we met). We meet on Zoom and the clergy conducts the whole service synchronously there. It helps us still feel connected. We also like that we can have our sound off and talk to one another during the service, offering our comments or reflections. We wish this was a part of normal church; it helps us feel more actively involved. The service includes a more extended sharing of "joys and concerns" at the time of the prayers, and people take turns being the lesson readers, etc.
