An Expanded and Generous Table:

Is Hybrid Worship in Your Future

Zoom Webinar - Link to be sent upon registration

While there is no single, best way for people to gather for worship, as the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel begins to shine and the conversation about “going back” begins in earnest, the question for many congregations is this, “Once online worship is no longer the only option for you and your congregation, will you all have the willingness, energy, and capacity to birth, curate, nurture, and sustain a long-term digital space?” or more succinctly put, “What now?”

 

The decisions that are made about worship in the coming months must not be taken lightly but must be approached with communal discernment, reflective honesty, and faithful practicality. For those with inklings and dreams about hybrid worship, it is my hope that the questions I offer will help you and your leadership to understand different options, assess congregational willingness, energy, and capacity, and make faithful choices that will best equip you for the future.
