We want to hear from you!
As we continue to create meaningful online services, we’re looking to include more participation from a wider variety of people in order to experience a greater sense of community in our gatherings, even though we can’t all be in the same room together.
One of the ways we want to practice community is by getting to know our Southridge family a little better, and that’s where you come in! We would love you to film a short video of yourself (and/or your family or roommates) answering a couple questions and prompts. Our goal is to try and get as many of us to participate as possible, and in doing so, experience the benefit of seeing one another as we gather online on Sundays together. Your face matters!
Using your phone or camera on landscape (not portrait) mode, make sure you’re in a well-lit area and shooting at eye height and answer the following:
• Introduce yourself and what location you attend.
• Pick two of the following questions to answer:
- How did you find your way to Southridge?
- Love snow or hate snow? Defend your answer.
- Show us a favourite spot in your home/yard/neighbourhood (& say why).
- Tell us about a favourite book you’ve read in the past year.
- How are you connecting with God and/or community these days?
- Do you have an interesting collection? Show & Tell!
- Favourite movie of all time? (& why?)
- What helps keep you happy & positive during winter?
We may only show one of your answers, but having two options allows us to mix and match different pieces together however it seems best for that day’s service.
In addition to this, while you’re already setup for filming, we’d love your help as we lead our community in worship. We’re looking for individuals to say a simple, short prayer (30sec-1min) using everyday language (no need to be fancy… authentic is the goal!) to pray for God to continue to be at work among us. One important instruction is that we would prefer you to use we/us/our language, instead of I/me/my language – since you will be praying on behalf our whole community.
When you film your prayer, get set in a comfortable position, look at the camera (phone) and say ‘Let’s pray.’ Then, feel free to close your eyes as you pray. At the end of your prayer, say “Amen” and then open your eyes and look at the camera for 2-3 seconds before moving. This will help us create a smooth video transition.
If you’re up for both video projects, awesome! If you prefer to only do one of them, that is excellent as well! We just want to see your face, because we miss you!!
