During this time of shelter in place, many of us are feeling alone and disconnected from our friends and family, our church community and our community at large. It is no wonder as we were all created for relationships and they are vital to our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Even in the midst of this time, we find ourselves, I am reminded of the writer’s words in Hebrews 10:24-25:
“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
In an effort to create an opportunity for us to “encourage one another,” we will be starting an online well check gathering that will take place on Wednesday mornings and evenings. We will be doing this through Zoom video conferencing, and it will give us an opportunity to see each other’s faces and hear one another’s voices.
Feel free to join the meeting in its entirety or join in for a few moments and then disconnect at any time during the meeting. Feel free to offer words of encouragement, share a prayer concern, offer ideas on how others might cope with sheltering in place, offer a prayer, give an account of where you have seen God at work in your life or in the lives of others or whatever else God might have put on your heart to share with those gathered on our video conference. There is no set agenda. It is merely an opportunity for us to connect with our church family. Info for how to join one or both of the meetings is below.
