Tech Team: We are in the process of creating our “Tech Team.” These are individuals who will assist us with managing the Zoom platforms for our workshops and assisting with the technical aspects of the Business Meeting. If you know someone who is interested in being part of the Tech Team, please contact Rev. Heather Fosburgh at [email protected] or 404-719-6572.
Opening Worship Videos: We are seeking videos that have someone from your church saying, “We praise you, Re-Creating God”. This can easily be done on a phone or computer. It can be done by one person alone or one person surrounded by other members of the congregation during a zoom meeting. The videos will be used as responses during the Gathering Prayer or other parts of the Worship. Email or text the video to Rev. Heather Fosburgh at [email protected] or 404-719-6572.
Outreach pictures or video clips: We are seeking pictures/video clips of members of your congregation involved in mission or justice projects this past year. This may include such things as delivering or giving out food; marching for as a Black Lives Matter witness; sewing masks; etc. We are seeking pictures/video clips showing that even during a pandemic, our church members have continued to be about mission. The pictures/video clips will be shown during the Offering time of worship, as a reminder that our offerings to God include our time, passion, and commitment. Video clips/pictures should be emailed or texted to Rev. Heather Fosburgh at [email protected] or 404-719-6572.
Advertise your church or special project: This is an opportunity for your church to celebrate or advertise during the Annual Meeting. You can purchase time for a short video or picture to be shown. Perhaps you are celebrating a church anniversary, or want to honor your pastor or lift up something special. You supply the picture or the video. Cost: 15 seconds – $25; 30 seconds – $50. In addition to showing it during the Annual Meeting, it will be included on the Annual Meeting website for everyone to view. Interested? Contact Rev. Char Burch at [email protected].
