Part One – the Introduction
Are you like me, growing weary of hearing or talking about Covid 19? When are we ever going to get back to normal? Even so, it is our current reality, and we talk about it because it affects our everyday lives. But, it doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be talking about and planning for Sunday School and Small Group Ministry to resume on our church campuses. “When” and “how” are important questions that we must use to address, plan, and prepare.
In our planning and decision-making, we need to be mindful of the following: 1) Sunday School and/or Small Group ministries in our churches’ are foundational to the health and growth of our churches. The longer we go without regular, on-campus or online meetings, the harder it will be to re-build our ministry. 2) It is important to make sure that our members and guests are able to come back to a safe, clean and healthy environment. 3) As we maintain or restart our ministry, we must ensure that it is biblically-based, ministry-focused and continues to connect new people to the Gospel and a small group of people that will teach and minister to them.
So, on Monday, August 10th and Tuesday August 11th, Louisiana Baptists will host our first ever, Digital ReGroup Conference. Not only will this be a timely message for those who lead the Sunday School and/or Small Group Ministry in their church, but ESPECIALLY for all those who lead a class or small group every week. We need to prepare these wonderful lay people who have the responsibility of making disciples through their class or small group for the New Normal.
We are asking you to commit to one hour. Below, you will see the schedule and the people who can help us understand the opportunities and challenges we face for the next few weeks and months. The webinar is free. All you have to do is register and watch. If you can’t participate in the live webcast, you can view it online. The recording will be available by Friday, August 14th on our website at www.LouisianaBaptists.org/ReGroup20Recap.
