Outline of Virtual gathering opportunities

The Fall has always been a time in the life of our church to refocus on our faith, spiritual disciplines, and get back into our routines. Not this year! All the routines had to change. But this does not have to affect our growth in faith and commitment to our spiritual disciplines. The following plan comes with a challenge to the congregation. The session has approved this as our new Fall Program. It is designed to give everyone a chance to participate regularly in the life of the church numerous times each week. We will use a combination of Zoom and Teams virtual meeting room apps with the goal to move completely over to Teams over time. All Zoom and Team meetings are open to anyone who wants to participate, regardless of age, even when they are designed for a certain age group.

Our Fall challenge is this: Every member of the church is to make a commitment to worship with us on Sunday mornings either in-person or through Internet Church at 10:30 on Sunday mornings. We hope you will make 10:30 your time to worship. If for some reason you are unable to do so then make a commitment to view Internet Church every week. Second, attend at least one Bible study or prayer meeting every week. I strongly encourage you to attend two, three, or more.

Sunday Morning

  • 8:45 – Men of the Church accountability meeting via zoom and in-person – We will not launch this on November 1. There are many other things to coordinate at this time. However, we will renew our gatherings in the near future. It will be led by Pastor Al, and we will share where we have seen God this week and check on how we are doing in our prayer and study lives. We close with prayer.
  • 9:30 – Genesis Class via zoom – led by Tom and Gene with Al providing technology support. They will continue to use the Presbyterian curriculum to study the Bible in-person and virtually. If you want to attend the class virtually contact Al to receive the link.
  • 9:30Adult Bible Study via Microsoft Teams and in-person – The class will continue to study Max Lucado’s “The Story”.
  • 9:30 – Youth Sunday School – At this time there will be no Sunday morning youth class. The youth meet regularly each Sunday afternoon.
  • 10:30 – Worship the Lord! Via online and in-person.
  • 11:45Fellowship in Fellowship Hall and via Microsoft Teams. This will be the one time during the week that everyone in the church can connect with one another. To join in virtually simply log-in a few minutes after worship is over.
