In an effort to connect to the community that we love, we are implementing different strategies during this time of social distancing. Much of our effort is taking place on social media. We have begun doing more live videos, like our midweek music moment with Brian and Mary Snell. We have been featuring “My Sanctuary” which is to get to know our fellow members and find where they are meeting God, now that we must keep our distance from the church. I have also begun a series called “Getting to Know Your Neighbor” which will highlight a member of the community who has a story to tell, those interviews will be uploaded to Facebook as well. Our Good Shepherd outreach was another example of working outside the walls of the church and showing love and extending compassion to the community of Mason City. We look forward to continually growing and changing with whatever comes our way, and hope that even when we do get back to normal, that we will still carry on our social media ministries as they have been quite a success.
