Fusion is going to look a little different...
Fusion launched in September, 2018. After a year-long process of discovery and discernment, the visioning team developed the format for Fusion, designed to be Trinity’s primary outreach. Using feedback gained through research, reading and conversations, we decided on a format that focused on storytelling, food and fellowship. Fusion was developed for those who might describe themselves as “spiritual, but not religious” and as seeking a sense of community, but may not be attracted to traditional, or even contemporary, church worship services.
In the early months of 2020, Fusion had achieved an important goal: roughly 50% of those attending Fusion were outside our Sunday morning members and constituents. And, attendance was averaging around 40-45 with an average of 8-10 children participating in Fusion Kids.
COVID has presented a significant challenge…
March, 2020 Fusion was cancelled. During April’s lockdown, we experimented with an entirely virtual/online format. In May, Fusion resumed, meeting outdoors. But cold weather is on its way.
Fusion is a unique format focused around building relationships so social distancing presents a significant challenge.
Beginning October 19, Fusion will become Fusion Light and will follow a modified format through March, 2021. The planning team has done our best to adapt to our new reality. Here’s what Fusion Light will look like…
On the 2nd Monday of each month, a storyteller will share their story via video. The story will be posted to the Fusion page of Trinity’s YouTube channel and our Fusion Facebook page and the link will be distributed via a church Eblast. Because storytellers will be videoed, this will allow us to access storytellers from far off geographical places. Do you have a friend, relative, or colleague who has an interesting story to share? It doesn’t matter where they live. Let Morris DuBose or Pastor Tracey know and we are happy to reach out to them.
Individuals will be able to engage with the story in one of three ways which we hope will accommodate those who are quarantining and need a virtual option, as well as those who are not tech savvy or suffering Zoom fatigue:
Fusion Kids will take place in the basement but capacity will be limited. You MUST sign your child/ren up in advance.
Trinity Fusion meets third Mondays at 6 pm.
Fusion Kids is NOT meeting. Children are invited to remain seated with their families during Fusion. Activity Bags are available.
Fusion Kids is a space where children connect and build relationships with God and each other, discover the love of Jesus Christ, and grow in faith. We focus on creating an environment where children feel safe. Activities are designed to reinforce skills they learn in school, as well as teach them something new.
