Most of us have been watching the Sunday sermons on our own, or just with our family. But why not gather together with a handful of close friends in your home? We can do this and stay within the prescribed guidelines by keeping the numbers to a minimum, and even maintaining social distancing. Having dialogues with our people, we’ve learned that most families have a handful of close friends they gather with on occasion – whether it’s neighbors, co-workers, extended family, small group members or other friends.
So why not join together on Sunday morning (or any time during the week) for worship, prayer, viewing the message, and discussing the sermon briefly afterwards? Instead of meeting in two locations with a large number of adults on Sunday morning, we can meet in multiple locations with a smaller handful of people at each location. It’s still the body of Christ, just spread out across our city – all worshipping the Lord and staying in community with people within our church family. Many of our people are already doing this. Some are meeting for breakfast together, and then tuning into hill country online for a time of worship and watching the sermon. Others are gathering on Sunday evenings or during the week... enjoying a meal and fellowship together, singing praise songs, watching the sermon, and then having a group discussion on how to apply the message using our provided Sermon Discussion Guide. The feedback we’ve received from these individuals has been overwhelmingly positive.
So we encourage you to think of a few people you are already spending time with... and invite them over to experience Hill Country @ Home. You’ll enjoy a sense of community similar to what we had when we were meeting live on Sunday mornings, and you’ll find the experience of worship to be more powerful than simply singing on your own.
