Disciples Virtual Gathering workshop
August 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
The Disciples Virtual Gathering is an opportunity for Disciples to connect, learn, worship, and imagine new ways of gathering as church.
Our day together will focus on the covenant we share as Disciples and the promise of Romans 8:38-39 that nothing can separate us from the love of God. The program will consist of bible lectures, educational workshops, and worship service, with invited speakers and presenters focusing on our theme.
As a proud sponsor of this virtual event, New Church Ministry will be presenting a workshop in Session 1.
Hybrid Church: Combining Online and In-person Communities
Creating a hybrid church extends beyond Sunday morning, but bringing online and offline worship attendees together is only one step. To align your congregation with digital culture through hybrid experiences, we must find more creative practices than providing a stream into our events. In this hybrid workshop, we will explore with participants what it means to bridge offline and online in faith formation and spiritual practice; help attendees deepen faith formation with technology; support spiritual practice and authentic connection across multiple platforms; discover good ideas to blend in-person worship with an online component — permanently; and form diverse teams and make mission plans more efficient.
