Pastors from various denominations from Hampton Roads Virginia cities will have a conversation about racism and its impact on their congregations and communities. Numerous pastors are sitting on the fence and need a safe space or a mentor to walk beside them, so we will seek to provide direction and outreach during these conversations.
Relax at home with the family, have some popcorn and make some kool-aid...Join a fun and informational event for the entire family. Vendors will present information virtually from their display tables. Once you register for this event you will receive notification as to where you can pick up your Community Explosions fun bag full of information from the vendors, coupons, and discount tickets for restaurants and other venues. You will have to attend the Virtual Community Explosions in order to receive the code for the prizes.
In the Early Church, people came together daily in houses. Today, people are coming together on social media. We cannot afford to miss the enormous opportunity to reach the “crowd” that exists online for God’s kingdom. Social networks have become the front door to faith for those who will not or cannot attend a brick-and-mortar church. And for those in your church already living out their faith, online groups expand their opportunity for daily discipleship, service to others, communal prayer, and building deep personal connections.
Many pastors struggle to maintain healthy practices of work and rest. And that was true before a pandemic that forced us to reinvent most of our ministry!
