Many of you have churches that will broadcast that is great. Others do not. Do this.
Invite your neighbors and have church. You can either all watch a broadcast or have service in a format I will give you.
But listen, if you have a broadcast service, don’t leave it at that. Real fellowship is more than shaking hands — which you might not want to do anyway. Real fellowship is: “how are you doing?
” “Is there anything I can help with.” We need that today.
If you want a broadcasted service, I recommend All Nations in Fort Mill, South Carolina:
Will try to reco one in California.
But look, people are very interested in their style of worship. Fine, just share.
Now, here is an alternative method, and really superior if you can pull it off.
Some method of starting. You can call that “A Call to Worship” A scripture works well.
Some worship via music. If your group can sing, that is superior. At the minimum, you can play a worship song on your phone.
Message from the Bible or Bible Study.
We do this, except we have a sermon and prayer time to close, then have break for coffee and pastries, and then have Bible Study.
The rule for Bible Study is comments are permitted only about the verse we are all looking at. Personal reflections and personal experiences only. No doctrine from somewhere else. So, not expect5ed that we must all agree, but is expect6ed that everyone interacts with the text and is transformed, God working with each one where they are. Now, of course, when I run them, I do field questions. If questions arise in your group that no one can answer, fine, write them down and call someone later. Then share the answer next week.
This could be a great time: revival of real community, awakening for neighborhoods, and getting to know neighbors and the Lord!
Also, you might want to go down the block to be sure everyone is okay. Maybe two by two. Everyone is watching the Christians. Let’s reflect the Light of the Lord.
