THE POWER OF CONNECTION

CONNECTING

One of the most difficult things, I think, about Lockdown is the lack of connection with others.

It seems a long and distance memory when we could worship God in a large crowd, when we could physically lay hands on the sick, give someone a high five or a hug, go to the pub or play sport. 

We were made for connection and we’ve missed it!!

So, here’s a number of ways we can CONNECT over the coming weeks as a church family.

FORTNIGHTLY ZOOM COFFEE

Every other Sunday for half an hour we’re going to connect over coffee from 11.15am.  A chance to see some familiar and some new faces.

Dates: 21st Feb / 7th, 21st March / 4th, 18th April

See weekly ‘What’s on @ Grace Church’ email / facebook for Zoom link.

ENCOUNTER EVENING

Miss connecting with God?  Having a longer time to worship and experience  His presence?  We have an evening to encounter and connect with God.

Wednesday 17th Feb, 7.45pm – 9.15pm.

FAMILY MEETING

For all Grace Church members.  A time to connect with future plans for Grace Church, share news and connect with our church family.

Sunday 21st March @ 7.30pm

EXPLORING MEMBERSHIP

IT’S MORE BLESSED TO GIVE THAN TO RECEIVE

These words of Jesus are so true.

Can I encourage you to not only think about what you’d ‘get’ from plugging in and connecting in these ways, but also what a BLESSING and ENCOURAGMENT you’ll be to OTHERS as you do so?

Are these digital ways of connecting the same as being together in person?  No, not by some way, but……. they are better than nothing, so let’s try and connect in these coming weeks in these different ways.

Look forward to seeing you on a zoom screen soon…..

And looking forward even more to when we can be back together in person.

Much grace,

Simon
