What is “This Is Us?” What is the purpose?
“This Is Us” is a part of the mission statement emphasis this year on “a community of faith.” “This Is Us” is an intergenerational time of fellowship, learning, and sharing about our community of faith.
The purpose is to highlight a different aspect about what a faith community is–ours in particular. Faith community is not something we “know about;” faith community is something we experience. So these sessions are designed to remind us of God’s design for faith communities and to experience the joy and bond of faith community during our time together. It is just one element of the year long emphasis we are having that will focus on that part of our mission statement.
The topics and dates for the three sessions are listed below.
- April 15 “This is Real”
- August 19 “This is Life”
- November 11 “This is Love”
Who should participate?
“This Is Us” is for attenders and members of our community of faith in the following age groups:
- adults of all ages,
- students (7th-12th grade),
- and children (4th-6th grade).
What if I have children under 4th grade?
There will be childcare for preschool-3rd grade during all three of the “This Is Us” experiences. If you have questions concerning childcare for “This Is Us” please contact Suzanne Reece or Connie Shaffer.
When will “This Is Us” take place?
Sunday evenings April 15, August 19, and November 11 at 5:30 pm. We will conclude each session at 6:45 pm.
Where will we meet?
All participants will meet in the Fellowship Hall. Childcare will be held in various locations based on age. When you arrive at “This Is US,” you will be given the location for your children’s care based on age.
What if I can’t come to all three sessions of “This Is Us?”
Of course, the maximum impact of this part of our year-long emphasis will be experienced if community members can attend all three sessions, but attending any of the sessions should be beneficial even if someone is unable to attend them all.
If you have any other questions concerning “This Is Us,” please contact Brian or Clella Lee.
