Following the success of our Zoom Christmas Eve worship, and with the province in another stay at home order, Brussels and Blyth United Churches are offering a chance for members and friends of the congregations to share in a time of fellowship. Using Zoom, we will be physically distant, but spiritually and socially nourished!
These sessions are currently scheduled for Tuesdays from 10:30 to 11:30 ish, and Wednesdays from 10:30 to 11:30 ish. People are welcome to attend either or both if they wish. Once we get it up and running, we’ll see if it would be better to move the sessions to different times. These sessions are also opportunities for those who would like to get to know the congregations a bit better to spend time with some of our members, even though we cannot meet in person.
These are times of company and connection. There isn’t any particular agenda for these fellowship times, but if you have any particular questions or ideas, be sure to share them. We can explore a few prompting questions for discussion if folks would be interested in that.
Folks can join in on these fellowship times either online through their electronic devices, or teleconferencing in by calling in. Once you do it once or twice, it is very easy to do! Links and phone number instructions have been emailed to congregants already. If you cannot find this information, or are not on the email list, please reach out to Alex directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call either one of the church offices and leave a message. We want to encourage anyone who wishes to participate to join, but we do not want to publish the link all over the web!
This past year, we have been called to do things in new and renewed ways, all in the name of our holy calling to care for the most vulnerable in our community. And this is no exception. Using Zoom, we hope to be able to help connect all those in our community, so that we might help each other get through this next little while. Blessings to you all, and I hope to see you at our fellowship times!
