We're Going to Have a Wowie!

Actually, we will have a rally, but kudos to anyone who gets the movie reference. (It's fairly old school and you probably would have had to either be a young child or be the parent of a young child in the mid-80's.)

Anyhoozle, this weekend, during all four services, Conexus leaders and facilitators will be manning (and womanning?) tables in the church atrium, ready to answer any questions about and sign anybody up for their groups. This will be your chance, prospective Conexus participant, to get some more personal feedback on what a group or class may entail. In many cases, also, you should be able to peruse copies of books or guides that may be used. And, of course, you'll get to decide if the face looking back at you isn't one you'll mind seeing for about an hour once a week.
Fun for the whole family. ;-)

If you are planning to sign up for a Conexus group, please do so, if you are able, through the Conexus page on the Hope Park website. You can sign up a few different ways, but entering through the website is actually the best and most expedient way for the church to receive your registration information and pass it on to the group leaders. In fact, when you sign up via the website, your info automatically gets forwarded to the leader of your group.
(Btw, if you've been signing up for the group I am facilitating, "Exploring Grace," don't worry. I have received your information, and I'll be contacting you all, as a group, sometime soon. Just didn't want you to think you'd slipped through the cracks.)

So don't forget: This weekend is your chance to preview Conexus groups with the folks who will be conducting them at the Fall 2006 Conexus Rally. Shortly before and after all four BCC services.

On a somewhat related note: Anybody know if Men's Fraternity is still going on? I remember seeing that it had been revived recently for early Sunday mornings, and I was going to do a posted "advertisement" for it, but now I see no reference to it on the church website. Has it been cancelled? Anybody "in the know" know anything?

Men's Fraternity is still going on. They meet every Sunday, starting September 17, at 6:30 AM in the Onion. It will be a 5 week long study.

Hope to see everyone at the rally this weekend!!

Chris, thanks so much for the information!

Information was also included in the Weekly Program. Which can/is down-loadable (is that even a word?)... as a PDF file or Flashpaper.... from the BCC website...

Ah, okay. Thanks!

I had poked around the seemingly obvious places -- the classes, groups, resources, etc. -- in the drop-down menus and didn't find anything. Even found it odd that there are links to Children and Women, but not Men. :-(
Even put "Men's Fraternity" in the search feature and didn't turn up the info.

I will probably do a post about it next week, before the series begins on the 17th.
