Sunday, July 25, 2021 and Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. – next small group ZOOM meeting
We’re changing our name! Circles of Care was formed by Discipleship and Caring Ministries during the early days of the pandemic as a way of keeping church members connected when we were all stuck in our homes. It was originally set up to be a connection caring ministry but over time evolved into a fun group that meets for lively discussion and online games. Last month we polled the members for a new name and came up with Sunday Online Chat & Games. So, if you’re home and want some virtual fun and conversation, join us in July and/or August!
It is not too late to join in. You can email Sharon Glennen at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to request the link for the Zoom meeting.
Please respond by Friday, July 23 and Friday, August 20. A link for joining will be emailed to you.
Why we do this:
After the pandemic started it became clear that it would be a while before we could gather together in church. We all miss the informal fellowship that happens when we spend time together, especially coffee hours and other activities that help us stay connected as a congregation.
Circles of Care was initially developed as a way to provide support to congregation members during the pandemic but has since evolved to a way of keeping us connected. The name was changed to Sunday Online Chat & Games and fosters informal fellowship, lets us stay in touch, helps us get to know people who we might not otherwise meet, and lets us learn things about them that we might not otherwise know.
The group meets monthly through Zoom at 2:00 p.m. on the fourth Sunday of each month. Sessions consist of group conversations about various topics such as your most unusual job, or favorite holiday memory. We also play informal games to get everyone laughing and sharing in fellowship. If you’re sitting at home and want to have some fun and fellowship with fellow First Presbyterians, come join us!
You do need to pre-register so we can send the Zoom link for each meeting. The next meetings are scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on the following Sundays—July 25 and August 22.
