Church, during these times we are having to rethink ministry. Not the message, but the method. None of us would have guessed we would be here just a few weeks ago, but here we are! So what do we do? We RISE UP! This is our time to shine forth the HOPE OF JESUS CHRIST! In doing this, we have to make sure the local body is connected and strong! We are better together! Pastor Anthony Milas, an advisor and mentor to me, has begun to implement a thing called E-Groups. This is a simple way to keep people connected, and looked after during this time! We are adapting E-Groups to fit our local body here at CP! A pastor's job is to “Eqip the saints” Ephesians 4:12. My job is to try to ensure you are taken care of. I can’t do this alone, so that is why we are implememting E-Groups. I can’t MAKE you join, but I STRONGLY encourage you to take advantage of this!
• On our last weekend of online church, we saw over 3,000 “viewers” tune in!!
• Everyone is slowing down and has extra margin in their lives right now, and people who would normally “tune out” church and God are suddenly interested again.
• PEOPLE are watching us and want what we have. The Bible tells us to make the most of every opportunity (Colossians 4:5) so we are going to try something we have never done before.
• It’s a simple way for us to connect with people online to offer the encouragement that we get from the Lord, his word, and from each other.
What is an E-Group?
Each week, starting next Wednesday, April, 1st, Pastor Todd will upload a video to our youtube channel: “Crosspoint church vt” at 6:55 pm. This video will be a 2-3 min encouraging word for you. After the video, you will connect with your E-Group.
Because this is an online group, there’s multiple online options: Zoom, Google Meet, Facetime, Skype, etc. One of the easiest and user-friendly platforms is FB Messenger Groups. FB Messenger has a FaceTime feature for Groups. Your E-Group leader will implement whichever is best for your particular group. Don’t panic, If you are not tech-savvy, YOU CAN DO THIS!
An online group of roughly 10-15 people that meet online each week for about 15-20 minutes to encourage each other with a quick message, and pray together.
When / Where do E-Groups meet?
Wednesday nights – this is a good mid-week time of encouragement.
Having the vast majority of them on the same night keeps us moving TOGETHER!
Because this is an online group, there’s multiple online options: Zoom, Google Meet, Facetime, Skype, etc. One of the easiest and user-friendly platforms is FB Messenger Groups. FB Messenger has a FaceTime feature for Groups. However, if being on a video etc. isn't something you desire, group textingis always a simple solution of communication!
Who is an E-Group for?
This is for everyone that wants to receive some encouragement during the week
Open to friends, family, coworkers, etc. This is an opportunity to reach people who otherwise wouldn’t attend a church service
This is also for our church family to stay connected to each other and continue getting to know each other
