Hello Adult Conference!
We are just a few days away from our Summer Virtual Retreat 2021! We hope you have had an opportunity to register at the regional website (https://www.ccinoh.org/events_details.aspx?id=464) to let us know you are coming, but if you haven’t, you are still more than welcome to join us! A goal for Adult Conference this year has been flexibility. You are welcome to join in one event through the week or to be present for everything! You can participate as an individual or join together with others from your faith community through a watch party.
This year’s retreat will be a blend of recorded videos and interactive zoom sessions. Linked by clicking HERE you will find the full schedule for the week as well as all the zoom links needed to access each individual event. Recorded videos will premiere through the Adult Conference of the Christian Church in Ohio (Disciples of Christ) facebook group page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/246903652130). While our interactive sessions will be through zoom software. You will notice that on Monday and Thursday in place of a second class, we will be offering a group conversation. On Monday, we invite you share how your congregation has implemented technology in response to the pandemic and share best practices for congregations moving into new technology. On Thursday, we hope to hear your voice concerning the next steps of Adult Conference.
I am in no way a tech wizard, but if you are having trouble joining the facebook group page or installing zoom software, I can try to help. Email me at email@example.com and we can work through the issue together.
If you wish to support the ministry and mission of the Adult Conference of the Christian Church in Ohio (Disciples of Christ), you can easily do so through the regional website (www.ccinoh.org.) Click on the donate button at the top right corner of the page. Choose the donation amount then under the “choose designation” drop box, choose either Adult Conference General Fund or All Saints Fund. Our All Saints Fund guarantees the ability of Adult Conference to bring in quality Bible Lecturers and Vespers Speakers.
We have much to offer in this next week and we hope you will be able to join us in worship, discernment, study, prayer, and song. We pray that this week, despite the unique circumstances, will be a moving and Spirit filled experience. And we cannot wait to see you!
Rev. Christopher K. Stark
