Taking Things Up a Notch…
There’s something that has been on my heart as of late that I hope will resonate with your hearts as well.
The blog community is an incredible thing. We learn and share all about our hurts, likes, dislikes, joys, sorrows: EVERYTHING! And we have been known to even give generously.
Some of my dearest friendships have even formed out of this thing called blogging.
And here’s what I believe is next for us:
What I would love to see come out of this blog and even out of the blogs around me … is an online LifeGroup. A weekly gathering of blog/online friends coming together for one purpose: to grow deeper in our relationship and knowledge in Christ … together.
Who is this for?
Whether you’re already in a LifeGroup where you are, or attend church but aren’t in a LifeGroup, or haven’t been to church in 10 years, or have never stepped foot in the church or even have no idea who Christ is… then this group is for you. And initially, co-ed. Does that cover everyone?
What it would look like:
It would start out with me leading it via webcam through Mogulus – with the flexibility of others leading week to week, if desired. We’ll worship together, either live via someone in the group leading on their webcam or through some form of video worship (ie. Hillsong)… then we’d discuss whatever the topic of the week is. The discussion/interaction would take place through your participation in the chat box provided by Mogulus. And of course: PRAYER! And there’s no cost to any of this.
Start date: Wednesday, December 3 at 8:30pm (central)
This starting meeting will basically just be an orientation and a chance for all of us to “officially” meet. If this date is too soon or if that day of the week is bad for the majority, we can be a bit flex.
What we still need to make this happen:
*Name for the group
*Those ready to spread the word!
(after we brand this thing a bit, i’ll design some widgets/banners asap)
Sounds like an awesome idea. But I wouldn’t be able to make the first meeting. I’m helping run an event that day.
I love it! I’ve often wondered how these cyber-relationships could go to a deeper level. I would so be in! I think that day/time would work.
I think this is a great idea and I’m totally in! Will you be using a book or how does this work as far as content for the life group?
Great idea! I’m “in-between” right now and “talk” more online now–this would be great.
I would love to be a part of this…I have been wanting to do something like this and to have it be a part of it online would be amazing… Looking forward to the orientation meeting.
I totally want to be in, but my church has a midweek service right about then….so sad. Let me know if other times or dates open up.
