Starting April 19

For the past several weeks we’ve been scrambling, like every other church and business, to adapt to the current circumstances. We’ve moved our services online. We’ve curated song lists for family worship. We’ve sent out devotionals. We’ve even held meetings digitally.

Yet it’s been painfully obvious that something’s been missing.

Human connection.

So we’re going to change that. Starting next Sunday, April 19, we’re going to do something different. The Sunday morning message will post on YouTube at 9:30 am, one hour earlier than usual. Immediately following the service, at 10:15 am, we will be holding several online small groups via Zoom. Everyone who signs up will be assigned to a group for a 40-minute gathering designed for fellowship, discussion and spiritual growth.

You can think of it as Sunday School and the time you spend chatting in the foyer all rolled up into one. We believe fellowship is essential to being Christ’s body, and would love to see every single person in our congregation involved in a group.

To sign up, simply check the box below.  You will then be sent an email prior to April 19 with all the information you need to connect to your group with Zoom. We’re also looking for individuals or couples willing to facilitate the discussion, so if you’re willing to help us out please select the option below.

What is Zoom and how do I use it? Zoom is a video conferencing app that allows groups to meet virtually. It is recommended that you access Zoom from a computer, smartphone or tablet with a camera so you can be seen, but that’s not a necessity. You can even call into a Zoom meeting from a phone! 

What do I do with my kids? Whatever you’d like! If you’d like your children to join in the discussion, they are more than welcome to do so. The atmosphere will be casual, and much of the time will be spent connecting with one another. 

Can I invite a friend who doesn’t attend Rose Hill? Absolutely! If you know someone in the community who doesn’t have a church home and might be interested in joining us, reach out to them and have them contact us if they’d like to join.


What does a facilitator do? A facilitator leads the discussion, introducing 4-6 questions which will be written ahead of time by Pastor Mike, and moves the conversation along in a timely manner. That’s about it! Facilitators will also be asked to set up the Zoom meeting with their assigned groups each week. If you’re interested in being a facilitator, you will be asked to attend a short crash-course online with Mike & the other facilitators prior to the first gathering. We’ll provide you with everything you need!

For how long will the groups last? Indefinitely. Would like to continue the groups as long as the social distancing guidelines are in place and see where it goes from there. So even if you’re not sure you can attend every week, it is still recommended that you sign up now.


What if I can’t make the new 9:30 am online service time? That’s the beauty of a digital sermon—you can watch it anytime! After the message has ended in real time, you can watch it at any point after that on our YouTube page. You could still watch the sermon online at 10:30 am or, even better, attend a small group and then catch the sermon afterward! The 9:30 am time is temporary until we're meeting again in person.
