Little Labs: Simple Ways to Practice Church & Mission From Home

Start Date: Sep 21, 2021

Looking for a spirituality that goes beyond livestream, screens, and earbuds? Wanna connect to neighbors beyond just a smile and a wave, but not sure where to start, especially during COVID? This “class” may be for you. Although this class ironically meets on Zoom, it’s not exactly a class, but an experience – or experiment. For 6 weeks you will join Grace in learning and practicing simple ways of leading church that anyone can do (and that neighbors could even come to without feeling like an outsider!), accomplish simple missional assignments that don’t make you look like a complete weirdo, and help “lead” the class with the ideas the Spirit is showing you. We will help you reflect on your specific neighborhood or circle of influence, your personality, and help you implement a few simple practices that will deepen the connections you already have. Don’t worry, you won’t have to talk if you don’t want to. But in this setting, we are all practitioners in the lab, and we get to try things and discover again that Jesus and his kingdom is FUN, his burden is LIGHT, and his yoke is EASY.

Tuesday evenings, 7-8pm CT

Class Format: Online via Zoom
Duration: 6 weeks
Instructor(s): Grace McJohnson

Grace received her M.Div from The Master’s Institute seminary and started Little Labs (littlelabs.fun) to help Christians experience church and mission in the simple way of Jesus. She’s a gifted communicator who some find frank, funny, and insightful, but she thinks it’d be cool if Christians shared more about their weaknesses and faults than their highlight reels. So, Grace has lots of issues, not limited to anger, depression, and not always speaking kindly to her husband and 3 wonderful kids. They are gracious to her about it. She’s a work in progress, but Grace’s joy is helping anyone and everyone understand that they are immensely valued by God. Grace’s specialties are teaching and writing on the Holy Spirit, inner healing, sexuality, biblical love, mission & evangelism, and really anything about Jesus and His Gospel.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
