Four Types of Community

Four Types of Community

An online shift & four types of community!

What a strange week, huh? We’ve seen extreme acts of selfishness and fear, but we’ve also seen the best of humanity on display. We’ve seen the pain of isolation but we’ve also seen the blessing of the internet, social media, and the human ability to find connection in very creative ways.  Our main desire in the coming weeks is to create space for you to connect and grow spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally. Discipleship happens in the context of community. We understand that many people Discover Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did differently and in different seasons and spaces, but almost always in the context of a relationship, a conversation or a friendship. Realizing our limitations of being a fully digital community for the foreseeable future we are shifting the way we approach “community building”. We have created 4 types of community for you to engage in and stay connected to the REUNION family. 



Life Communities
– (formerly Community Group) are places where life is shared and lives are changed. LCs center around relationships and meaningful, challenging conversations. (All of these groups are still meeting through Zoom. You should get an email from your LC leader soon!)

Connecting Communities are places where relationships are broadened and common interests are enjoyed together. (Cooking classes, Yoga online, Kids Storytime, songwriters guild, etc)


Formation Communities
are experiences, trainings, retreats, or classes that deepen our knowledge of God and self, leading to transformation. (Book club, Leadership Community, Midday Prayer, Starting point class)


Neighboring Communities are spaces where we learn to be good neighbors by serving our city. (serving alongside blackstone, “I can help link on website”, Partnering with Community Cooks)


Information can be found in the loop, social media, and there is a one stop shop calendar on the website in the calendar section. We want to encourage everyone to download the video software “Zoom”. You can get the phone app, or computer app, and it takes just a few seconds to set up. We will use it for a lot of our community connection. It’s got good privacy opportunities, great options for being able to mediate groups and have visual contact with others, while still having safeguards in place. Life Communities will meet through zoom  along with other communities that require face to face interaction and privacy.

All other connecting points will go live on Facebook and Instagram. We will use REUNION.online.church for all our Sunday morning gatherings so be sure to bookmark that page. We can’t wait to connect in community with you in this season. See you ONLINE this Sunday at reunionmovement.com/ !

Covid-19 & Reunion

REUNION Family,

 

We love you. We care about you. We are closely following the COVID-19 infection in Massachusetts and above all have our communities and cities well being and health in mind. We are and will continue to follow closely the recommendations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

As we become more aware of Coronavirus and its effects on our community, we can see how personal touch and interaction can have a rippling impact. The president of Harvard said it best when he said, “These past few weeks have been a powerful reminder of just how connected we are to one another—and how our choices today determine our options tomorrow.” 

While we are actively choosing not to be led by fear or anxiety in this season, we are choosing to be led by love and wisdom. We have always been a church who seeks to love this city and BLESS our neighbors. The best defense the vulnerable have against COVID-19 is for those people who are healthy to take serious measures and protect themselves and others.  

What more loving thing can we do than disrupt our routine in ways we don’t want to for the sake of others? At this time we believe the most loving and wise thing we can do for the sake of our neighbors and community is to temporarily shift all of our Sunday gatherings online for the next two weeks (March 15th and 22nd). 

We will livestream our gatherings online Sunday morning at 10:30AM. There will be a time of worship, communion, teaching and prayer. We’ll also have a seperate “Children’s story time” directly following the gathering through our online platform.  

Our hope is to resume in-person gatherings March 29th, but this two weeks shift will allow us time to gather more information and properly assess the situation in order to make the best decision moving forward.  

We will also be shifting our meal packing event with Rise Against Hunger to the 5th Sunday in May. We will keep you updated as we have more details. For more information regarding our online gatherings and to stay up to date with news, be sure to follow us on all social media platforms: We’d love to encourage you to automate your giving online so we can continue to help people find their way back to God. If you are in need of assistance during this time, or able to offer assistance (storage, help with flights, housing, etc) please email info@reunionboston.com.

 

See you online this Sunday!
