Be Whole, Live Well, Come Together: Announcing the Bridge Event

09 Sep 2020 12:46 PM | Jen Burch (Administrator)

We are in the middle of a time where some togetherness is exactly what we need.

As camp and retreat leaders, we thrive off of what we do best: cultivating

community and spaces set apart for people to grow.

UMCRM has created a virtual Bridge Event to do just that.


This is a call to all camp and retreat leaders who are craving community.

This Bridge Event is specifically designed for our fellow camp folks to be whole, live well, and ultimately come together.

A group of UMCRM volunteers has worked to put together a monthly virtual event series for any and all camp/retreat leaders who are interested in joining. These four events align with each other, offering different keynote speakers, worship leaders, and workshops for each event.


When will the monthly events take place?

The Bridge Event will include four virtual events held on Wednesdays, October 21st, November 18th, January 20th, and February 17th. Participants will be able to tune in from the comfort of home, office, or personal space. Different sessions will be available at several times throughout the day.

General Schedule: (times shown in Eastern Standard Time)

7:00am    Morning Devotion (recorded for later viewing)

12:00       Vendor Hall Open

2:00pm    Workshops (up to 1.5 hrs)

3:00          Vendor Hall Open

4:00pm     Special Guest Speaker, Breakout Sessions following

7:30          Evening Worship (later watch parties in various time zones)


How much will this cost?

The cost per participant is just $60 for the whole series. This includes all four virtual events and access to recordings of each event. There will also be a virtual vendor hall to connect with UMCRM-friendly businesses and services. Wait, there's more! Registrants will also receive worship boxes by mail, available while supplies last. Times are financially hard right now, so in order to ensure that everyone is able to attend, scholarships are available upon request. Even if you missed a previous event, register now to get access --it's still a great deal.


What is the worship box?

While supplies last, registrants will be mailed a box of materials curated by our leadership team. These hand-selected items are meant to inspire you to create your own sacred space to worship during our virtual events. Share your inspirations by posting a photo of your worship space using the hashtags #umcrm and #UMCRMtogether on social media.

Where will these events happen?

Our leadership team has created the events within PheedLoop, a virtual conference platform. This platform will allow us to offer a virtual vendor hall, keynote speakers to broadcast their presentations, worship leaders to share, and workshops to happen. Once you register, you will receive more details on accessing the events, including a "what to expect" video. 


What if a participant is only able to attend some of the events and not all four?

Recordings of each session will be made available to all registrants. The registration fee is the same whether you register in September or in February, because it includes all-access to the 4 events. However, we hope community members will be able to join in person as much as possible --the networking chat feature, live Zooms, and lunch table conversations really help it feel like we are together in person. Come as you are and join live as you're able!
