CFTROU 0124: Regathering During COVID-19: First Impressions
As we regather, we made some changes regarding our hospitality teams and processes in our new reality. On this episode we detail how we have navigated these changes. We noticed that people are willing to come back to church in person, however, they are doing that at their own pace. Today on the show we are joined by Bev Bonner, who oversees our connections, groups, and overall First Impressions of Family Church Downtown. Pastor Daniel Martin, who serves at Family Church Sherbrooke as the Administrative Pastor, joins the conversation and shares his insight on shepherding groups at his campus. Even though we have been in the process of regathering for several months, we are still learning a lot as we figure out how we do church in a post-pandemic reality.
