Candidating Week will be here in no time! And since you won’t have the opportunity to have a casual chat with Sarah in the Community Room, we are scheduling Zoom chats. These will be informal discussions when you can ask Sarah any questions you want about her life, her family, her theology, her favorite flavor of ice cream — whatever! And yes — children are welcome to be a part of these sessions and ask their questions as well!

We’ve kept these to 8 participants per session, but by that, we mean 8 computers. If you have 5 people in your family, and you will all be on the same computer, then that will just count as 1 participant, and you should just sign up on one line with “Smith Family.” If you will be participating by yourself, that’s fine, too, or you may sign up as a couple. We only ask that children under 12 not sign up by themselves but participate with their parents.

We’re offering a number of different days and times in the hopes that everyone will be able to find something that works with their schedule. If, however, you are unable to make any of these sessions but there is another day and time that would work for you, let us know and we may be able to schedule another session.

Also, since voting members of the church are the ones who will make the decision of whether to call Sarah as Wildflower’s minister, we’ll be sending the email with sign-up information to voting members first — today, April 11. Then, a couple of days later, after they’ve had a chance to sign up, we’ll send an email to non-voting members, and non-members, on April 13. We want everyone to have a chance to chat with Sarah, but it’s especially important to us that voting members get that opportunity.

And, as we’ve said before, if you are unable to get Zoom working, or if you know someone who either doesn’t have a computer or doesn’t have an internet connection, please let us know. We want to help everyone get online and comfortable with Zoom before April 20 gets here!
