Digital RE and What’s Going ON!

Hang out in the RE Lounge with Me!

A funny thing has evolved out of our new online RE format — I have now become a ghost who haunts Zoom on Sunday mornings while other classes are going on! I have to stick around to make sure people can get to their rooms and anyone who shows up late or who is signed out can sign back in. As a result, I’m just kind of hanging out most mornings doing nothing in particular other than making sure things are going smoothly.

So––an open invitation to anyone and everyone: feel free to come hang out on Sunday mornings with me from just after 10AM to 11AM. The Zoom link arrives every Sunday in the RE Sunday Invitation.

RE Calendar

We have an RE calendar that is going to be a little different than years previous, so all classes will not meet on all Sundays, and some programs are going to be taking place that are intentionally geared for families, mixed groups, and other times.

With that in mind, I’ll be emailing the calendar link to all registered participants as part of the RE email on Sunday mornings. So please keep track of the calendar for the events that you or your family will want to attend! If you have registered, you’ll be getting the email when it comes out. If you haven’t registered yet, please do!

Parent and Family COVID-19 Check-In & “Download”

This year has put special stress on parents and families. School schedules, after-school programs, daycare fluctuations, work schedules, family gatherings on Zoom, elderly family who we are unable to see––everything has been turned upside down.

One of the best things about our community is that it gives us a chance to share in our difficulties, to offer supportive ears and hearts to one another, and to get through difficult times together. In that spirit, myself and Caryl Yoo –– who is willing to lend out of her extensive background as a counselor and with the public schools as a social worker –– will be holding a parent and family “download” on Zoom on the final Saturday of the month from 9:30 to 10:30 (THIS IS A CHANGED TIME!) (Zoom link will be sent church-wide the day before our meeting!)

Our next meeting is on November 21, 2020! Put it on your calendars!

Please come if you are a parent or family member struggling with all of the things that the COVID-19 pandemic has done to our family lives. We’ll talk about stress management, self-care, grace and patience––and most of all we will listen and invite others to listen. This is a chance for families to check in, to lean on community, and to take a breath among friends.
