What Else We’re Doing When You’re Not Looking

  • Changing the hopeful message board in front of the church
  • Sending out daily Lenten reflections by Facebook and posted to the website
  • Recording music as video & audio files with community performing artists to share in worship and spiritual settings. (Psssst: Would you share yourself playing your instrument or singing for us? We’d like to include you in worship over the next several weeks! Contact Rev Gail!)
  • Passing along donations of food and supplies from local businesses made to the church, which are then re-distributed through SAU9 (school district) for families needing additional support. Other donations have gone to individual Jackson and Bartlett families and more  meals have gone to people staying at Starting Point’s domestic violence shelter
  • Running modified shifts at the Way Station, supporting people living in tents, cars, couch-surfing or temp housing such as motels
  • Calling neighbors to check-in on each other and run errands for each other. If you need someone to pick up mail or groceries, or help you out, contact Rev Gail or make your need known through the Jackson Bridge (community listserv project of library to match helpers with those who have specific requestsand more info on our the library’s new Jackson Bridge webpage.)
  • Planning social programming (virtual gatherings for fun and enrichment) and worship with new technology, learning and adapting as we go!
  • Organizing (with other churches) valley-wide trivia tournament among faith communities!
  • Attending emergency management meetings (via Zoom) with ministry colleagues, healthcare providers and nonprofits who are collaborating to provide safety nets for residents of the valley
  • Implementing action plans to help vulnerable people

Valley-wide Multi-church

— also known as Interdenominational Trivia Rumble —
JCC’s Trivia Event: Tue, April 7
3pm via Zoom

The Clergy of the Eastern Slope (our valley’s ecumenical group of ministers and churches) is taking up the challenge of Nativity Lutheran to hold trivia tournaments within our own faith communities. Then we send our winning church team into a valley-wide interdenominational trivia ‘rumble’ (sorta like March Madness, without courts, sneakers, or basketballs).

This is all handled in virtual, remote settings, of course! Please contact Trivia Captain Fred Tompkins if you’d like to be on a team! Winners may receive … prizes that resemble coveted items like toilet paper!Proposed format via Zoom:

  • Divide people into teams and use the breakout room feature in Zoom (sounds hard, but its easy, the Zoom host organizes all of this).
  • For each question we will give one minute’s deliberation.
  • The teams come back together and one person from each team reports the answer. 
  • Zoom Info (please RSVP to Fred Tompkins in advance so we’re prepared for participants) — Participate via Zoom app on computer, pad or smart phone: Or dial in 929.436.2866 with Meeting ID: 211 319 7275.
