Backyard conversations are happening, and early experiences have been very positive! If there is interest, we hope to continue offering them through the summer. See below for the original description and the sign up. If you are interested in hosting, please contact Beth Tyne.
For the past year and a half, our experience of church has been focused on our pastors as they have bravely and beautifully led us in worshipping remotely through "Our Bigger Balcony." Now as we begin the post pandemic recovery, it is time (to borrow a line from Margaret Wheatley's poem) to "turn to one another” and begin conversations that will help us reconnect.
To that end, you have the opportunity to sign up for a backyard conversation hosted by a member of your First Congregational Church family. Current COVID protocols will be followed. There are a variety of dates and locations available and more will be added. Expect a one time, facilitated conversation encouraging sharing of experiences, needs and hopes for going forward and a chance to meet and chat with folks you may not have connected with for a while. Contact Cydne in the church office for the sign-up link.
