Bring new ideas and visions with you to our digital gathering. Before our meeting please explore the resources offered on the Invite Welcome Connect Webpage: Being Church during a Pandemic https://www.invitewelcomeconnect.com/beingchurchduringapandemic

Prayer walk your digital neighborhood. Visit the websites of local hospital, town, houses of worship, library, school, chamber of commerce/business improvement district, parks, malls, social service agencies, local restaurant and entertainment venues and other important local sites. What’s new? What is God drawing your attention towards? Who and what touches your heart? What is heartening? What is disturbing? How are the people gathering and dispersing during the pandemic? Write down what God draws your attention to, in discussion and prayer with other “walkers” it will help you understand what God wants to have happen in your neighborhood. Download directions for prayer walking and questions to debrief by zoom, you will need to “translate” from analogue to digital reality: https://episcopalchurch.org/files/attached-files/neighborhood_prayer_walks_tec.pdf
