Local churches are having to change everything about the way worship is done due to the COVID-19 Pandemic - everything is now online. At the same time, some of the smaller churches in our community have completely halted everything and don't even have an online presence.

Churches like New Vision Baptist are focusing all of their attention on the web. In the past, the Murfreesboro church that sits on Thompson Lane always highlighted the importance of meeting in small groups outside of regular worship hours. Today, Pastor Brady Cooper continues to suggest that small groups are where we learn best to tackle life and the obstacles that are thrown our way.

A recent email to church members stated, "At New Vision, we believe that meeting with a group of people, opening the Word of God together, and sharing your life and praying with one another is extremely effective in strengthening your walk with the Lord." So, how are churches members meeting in groups?

Church groups are not physically meeting in person. Instead, they are meeting online - due to current COVID-19 circumstances. In fact, there are a large number of virtual options for churches, Sunday school classes and small groups. New Vision reports, "Now is a great time to get connected, and not live in isolation." Pastor Cooper stated...
