new growth
MARCH 2023


This month, "That's Our Church" is sharing resources to "ground" you in the Word from a new Lenten resource, a podcast with sermons from last week, and weekly devotions.


Lenten resource helps participants engage in new ways

A new resource called Role Play the Gospel (or RPtheG) is a project created by a group of Virginia clergy, laity, and the conference Communications Office to help immerse yourself into the events of Holy Week.
To participate, build a character, read Scripture, and turn on your imagination as your character walks alongside the events of the Lenten Season. You can complete one prompt each day or do multiple prompts at a time.

It is not too late to take part!

Use this link to download the project PDF. Other resources are available at the conference website.

As you prepare to play RPtheG, be sure to add yourself to the Facebook group, a community space to share your experiences, ask questions, & post some of the prayers, poems, and/or images you create.

Podcast shares sermons from around VAUMC

The VAUMC Connection launched a new podcast, Wednesday Wisdom: Sermons from Last Week.

Listen to available sermons (March 8 and March 15) now on the conference website, Spotify, or Apple.

Did you give a sermon and want to give it a second life? VAUMC is looking for your sermons to post as podcasts each week. It will be a chance to bring the Word to the mid-week slump between Sundays and also spotlight the hard work VAUMC pastors put in for Sunday mornings! You can submit your sermons by filling out the form.
