Unscripted: Expressions of Encouragement & Support


Unscripted is a conversation about what's going, what's working, and where you are seeing God at work. Then the conversation is flipped, asking the question, "Where do you want to see God at work and what prayer concerns do we need to lift up as a community?"

6/1/20: Caring for Health Care Workers

Unscripted is moving in a new direction! Up until this point the Unscripted times have been general times for connection and support. Starting June 1 at 2 p.m., we will be refocusing those times to add a theme for each session. On June 1 the focus will be caring for health care workers.  Our host will be Rev. Ron Carlson superintendent of the Northwest District. Join us on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/95263025913), or dial in at +1 301 715 8592 with meeting ID 952 6302 5913. 

6/8/20: Caring for Farmers

This week’s Unscripted will focus on Caring for Farmers. Farmers have been impacted in many ways by Covid-19 and in general are not always open to sharing their struggles. The nature of farmer and farming presents some challenges for providing pastoral care for farmers and their families in this season. Our host, who grew up on the farm herself, will be Rev. Melissa Drake. Melissa is Associate Director of Congregational Excellence and July 1 will become the District Superintendent of the Southwest District. Join us on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/94901723459) or dial in at +1 301 715 8592 with meeting ID 949 0172 3459. 

6/15/20: Caring for Main Street

Dr. Lanette Plambeck, Director of Clergy & Leadership Excellence for the Iowa Annual Conference. Join us on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/97906375530), or dial in at +1 301 715 8592 with meeting ID 979 0637 5530.
