As our Small Groups Sign-Up’s get started this winter, we wanted to tell you about a few of the options. Here are a few words from Kelley Shields about the small group she is hosting this winter with Amy Zapf (Small Group #14)
Meeting Where You Are
And we mean that in a lot of ways!
Some of us go through times when it is just impossible for us to physically go to a small group. Maybe you’re struggling with a health challenge that doesn’t leave you with the energy to attend. Maybe you’re in a travel-heavy season at work and won’t be in town enough to make small group meetings. There are lots of very real reasons that might have you saying “I just cannot make it right now.”
We care about this because we’ve both been there – and of course, the seasons when our situations made it too difficult to go to a small group were seasons when we both really could have used the community and support of a small group!
So, we’re trying something new.
This trimester we are launching a virtual small group! We’ve both found that online video platforms can create a space that feels pretty much like you are talking to someone in person. We’ll be conducting this group over Zoom – all you’ll need is a smartphone or computer (with a camera), and possibly an external microphone to make sure we can all hear each other. (The earbuds that come with an iPhone and have a microphone on the cord work just fine.)
So, if you weren’t going to sign up for a small group because you just cannot make it right now, please join us on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM! And please feel free to reach out to Amy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Kelley (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
