Since coming to Ohio and this merged congregation, I have had to make many suggestions and decisions as this congregation goes forth. The pandemic happened just as we were getting acquainted with one another – which caused frustration and yet, it caused us to come together and draw on our options. We started streaming our services, which meant to be professional & presentable, we needed to purchase equipment that would do the job. We have several members that have faithfully watched on Sundays while Covid was a huge threat. We have offered the community our resources such as Wi-Fi when the schools were closed. We developed a media room which remains open 10am-5pm daily for school children and adults to use.
I have had to find solutions in the past, where none seemed possible. I feel that I have the expertise from past congregations and certainly have gained knowledge during this past 3 years with Covid closing many avenues.
