On a desktop or laptop, below the chat are 4-5 tabs labeled CHAT: schedule, notes, Bible, etc. Click on any of those to hide the chat, and you might find a different useful feature at the same time!
On a mobile device, the tabs are identified by icons are above the chat (chat is the one with two bubbles). Tap on any of them to hide chat. To use the chat, enter a chat name into the dialogue box to get started and then post away! There are pastors online during every service and other guests to talk with. You can also click the blue sign up button in the upper right corner of the screen on desktop to make an account so you can have the same chat name each time and so we can connect with you again. Sign up on mobile is in the menu just like Give.
