“There is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (2 Corin. 5:17). ReImagining Church During the Covid-19 Crisis offers an opportunity to begin to reconnect to what it means to be the church and heal from the trauma of the changes to our lives due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Covid-19 continues to challenge and distress our lives. However, what we are learning is how our faith is giving us a foundation for a new way of being together as the church.
This course will create a sacred space for you to interact using:
- Biblical stories and personal insights
- Trauma informed care and post-traumatic growth teachings
- Wellness tools and practical rituals
You will have an opportunity to process the grief, loss and uncertainty associated with Covid-19 as well as share the hope, community, and vision for what church can be even during this time of unprecedented cultural upheaval. You will leave with new tools to cope with the changes and to find joy in the new way we live as the church. You will enjoy the intimate style of two expert presenters: Ms Danica Moore, MSW, LSW —a licensed social worker, coach and counselor whose expertise is trauma and post-traumatic growth. Rev.Hilda R. Davis, PhD, LPC—a psychologist and licensed counselor whose expertise is health, spirituality, and the church.
God intends to do a new thing—join us to share, process, fellowship, and re-imagine church!
**Zoom call will be held from 7 to 8:30 Central time**
