I think the Northwest District Network of Churches just had its best weekend ever! I think we engaged with more people over the weekend than on any previous weekend-other than perhaps an Easter weekend. New channels of connection were opened up and a high percentage of unreached people are “tuned in”.
It’s hard to imagine a better scenario for the church.
People have travel restrictions, a strong sense of their need for a supportive community, a need to be more connected to God-other solutions aren’t working and limited activity or recreational options. Very exciting!
Obviously, there are some challenges to overcome. But, as you gather with your team today, remember to view this moment as the opportunity that it is. We will provide you with best practice ideas over the next couple of days...be watching for those.
