On Wednesday night, June 15th, WatsNaz will launch a unique weekly experience for which we have no name or good explanation. It will be a church service minus the singing and the rows of chairs facing a preacher who preaches and you all just be quiet and listen. But it won’t really be a “small group” either.
Participants will first gather with friends around tables to just have some fun table competition. It might be a PowerPoint game or some other relational activity that will simply “break the ice.”
We will then hear a short 10 minute introduction to the topic/passage/message that was given the previous Sunday followed by “round table” discussions around related Bible passages and ideas/topics printed on handouts at each table. Anyone can facilitate the discussion. No degrees necessary.
The evening’s M.C. will then wrap things up with folks at different tables sharing insights discussed at their table in an open mic kind of setting. Kind of a “user-generated” lesson.
In a nutshell we will be a priesthood of believers sharing life together. Coffee bar will be operating outside with some hot tunes playing to allow for early arrivals and late departures who just want to talk or hang out together.
Spread the word with “Likes” and “Shares.” Whether you want to call it “church” or your “small group” is your call. Bring your smart phones and tablets as we will include those friends “outside the walls” in our opening games and discussions. There will be no silencing of phones!
