Join other disciples from all over the Region of FL as we virtually gather to learn and worship together. Visit the registration page for more information: http://fldisciples.org/2020-assembly-registration.html
Greetings, brothers and sisters in Christ. Our 2020 Virtual Regional Assembly is this weekend! There are many ways to participate, from live workshops and worship, to pre-recorded instructional videos and music--including some stunning work by our region’s youth. Our first-ever virtual assembly is filled with events that represent the diversity of the Florida Region and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Please tune in this Thursday, October 8, to test your tech and work out any bugs before the assembly kicks into gear, Friday afternoon, with a live Q&A session featuring representatives from many disciples ministries (See below for more information).
As we enter this new and unusual way to be together, please keep in mind just a few simple Zoom basics to ensure an enjoyable, spirit-filled, inspiring assembly for everyone:
1. Keep your microphone muted until it’s your turn to speak.
PRO TIP: While you’re muted, hold down the spacebar, walkie-talkie style, to speak. When you let go, you’ll be muted again!
2. REGISTRATION with a valid e-mail address IS REQUIRED as a Zoom safety precaution.
If you have trouble registering, getting online, or joining an event, please let either Michael Junkroski or Jenn Moreno know and they’ll do their best to help.
Rev. Michel Junkroski: 239.821.8762 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Pastor Jenn Moreno: email@example.com
Thank you for your participation and support, we’ll see you at the assembly!
The Peace of Christ be With You,
Your Regional Assembly Planning Team
