|Online worship gathering today|
Click here to join worship on Sunday, August 30
Our gathering is live rather than pre-recorded! We begin at 10:00am and end about 11:15am but you can enter as early as 9:30am and listen to music in the waiting room. You do not have to have a Zoom account. You will have opportunity to have your computer webcam on or off, that being said, having your webcam on will give us a sense of being together that we do not have when cameras are off.
Connecting by phone
If you do not have a computer, tablet, or smart phone you can still be a part of the gathering. You can “call in” to join the meeting and listen over your phone. Just call 312-626-6799. When asked for the meeting ID, enter 482 638 780# and when asked for personal ID, enter #.
Need help getting connected? Join the meeting early so there is time to troubleshoot, if necessary.Helpers will be standing by to troubleshoot and help you join — call Herb Crown or Ethan Laster.
|Prepare your heart for the gathering |
In last week’s gathering I enjoyed conversation with Kyle Johnson about our in-person, on-campus, small groups and Lafayette’s interaction with the families in the neighborhood in helping them get caught up on their rent.
This week, I will continue conversation with Kyle, this time regarding interaction in the neighborhood with the food pantry he and a team are putting together to help neighborhood people with food-insecurity have the food they need. Also, I will provide an update on preparations for in-person gatherings.
I encourage you to prepare your heart for Table and Word this week. Usually, I provide a list of foundational texts that will steer our worship time together and ask you to read in order to prepare your heart. Today, I simply ask you to keep these words on your heart until we meet Sunday morning — “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer” (Psalm 19:14 NRSV).
Don’t forget to bring your Bible to our Sunday gathering!
