Hinged Birmingham, Delaware, San Diego, San Antonio, and Chicago Conferences have been canceled for this Fall but instead…
We hope you will join us for
a Catalyst for Community
Registration for Hinged@Home
will open on August 18, 2020.
…it is where we live and worship, where we know we belong, but it is also our eternal destination. And a hinge is a utilitarian piece of hardware. Its job is to connect two pieces together so that they are made useful. As we bring those two ideas together, consider the impact of hinging with others around truth as we walk together until we get Home. Sheltering in place and unrest in our country have left many longing for meaningful conversations and lasting connections. That is why now, as never before, we need to be vitally connected to Christ and each other as the Church.
A Catalyst for Community:
Since we can’t come to your town, we want to deliver the encouraging digital content to you in an easily accessible format. Let’s hinge together and gather a group of intergenerational women to meet virtually or socially distanced to connect around key truths found in Ephesians.
By registering for Hinged@Home, you will receive access to the video teaching from our Hinged keynote speakers from September 15 to November 15. These speakers come from different places, churches, and generations but are united in their love for Christ and His Church. We will also provide a variety of short conversation videos about what it looks like to be vitally connected to Christ and His Church led by diverse women from across our denomination on a wide variety of topics. Although all of this teaching will be different from the Hinged Bible Study’s video teaching, it will prayerfully give you opportunities to go deeper into the book of Ephesians with the opportunity to unpack the implications of these truths in your own local church. We hope Hinged@Home gatherings will serve to strengthen local churches and increase blessed belongingness.
Look for more information in the coming weeks and registration to open by mid-August. Check back to see plans as we pivot from regional conferences to something you can plan to do with your local church, with friends, or individually.
We have found that women desire community and deeper study in God’s Word. When we had to cancel the remaining Hinged Conferences, we prayed about an opportunity that would make the content that had already been planned accessible to both those who had registered for a Hinged Conference, as well as those who wouldn’t have been able to attend. Hinged@Home is the “home” version of the regional conferences. You’ll get the opportunity to hear the same speakers that were scheduled for the in-person conferences, plus more!
All registrants will receive access to a website that will have video teaching from all 6 Hinged locations (you can choose the keynote speakers who were scheduled for your region, any 3 speakers you would like to hear, or you can listen to all of them!). You will also receive access to a variety of short conversation videos about what it looks like to be vitally connected to Christ and His Church led by diverse women from across our denomination on a wide variety of topics with discussion questions included. And we will be sure to include schedule ideas, ice breakers, outlines, discussion questions, and other helpful encouragement.
We are hopeful that churches will use this opportunity to gather their women, either in person or virtually, to continue to study God’s Word using the Hinged@Home teaching.
Yes! By registering, you can have access to all of the content from September 15 to November 15 so you can watch at your own pace. You may want to connect with a friend or relative who lives down the street or across the country and use the discussion questions together after you each watch the videos.
While the biblical content is the same (the book of Ephesians), there is so much to be learned from these passages. It will prayerfully give you opportunities to go deeper into the book of Ephesians with the opportunity to unpack the implications of these truths at home and in your own local church.
Details will be coming soon. The cost will be per person, with a discount to churches who gather 5 or more women to study together. The cost will be between $20-30/person. We have 2500 ESV Illuminated Scripture Journals for Ephesians, which will be sent to groups who register together (while supplies last).
Yes! We would love to have you participate in Hinged@Home, and you can also still do the Bible Study if you would like.
Those who register for Hinged@Home will receive access information to a special website, and access will be available from September 15 to November 15.
During these days, we’re learning to be flexible, and so we wanted to make Hinged@Home as flexible as possible for you! The content will be made available from September 15 to November 15. You can access it any time during those dates. Maybe you want to plan a 1 day event, or 3 Wednesday nights, or Zoom calls. Or maybe you are going to watch these on your own. The choice is yours! We will give you some sample schedules and ideas when you register.
There may be instances where a church wants to plan a retreat/conference after November 2020; a decision about that option will be made later this Fall.
Yes! We would love to have you gather a group and participate in the Bible Study. The books can be purchased from pcabookstore.com (a downloadable version is also available). The free video content and discussion guides from the Bible Study will remain online at www.pcacdm.org/hbs until December 2020.
Please go to pcacdm.org/hbs. While over 2,450 women from all around the world have participated in the Bible study this summer, we know of churches who are planning to use the study this Fall at their churches. The teaching videos and content are being added weekly, and all of it will be available online by August 15 (when the official summer study ends).
We contacted each local host church and due to Covid restrictions, we were not able to offer the conferences due to greatly limited attendance figures and potential safety of attendees.
We would welcome you to register for Hinged@Home, where you will receive the same content as you would have received at the in-person conference (but we will miss getting to see you in person!).
All payees will receive an email from Kathy Wargo with instructions about receiving refunds, applying funds to a Hinged@Home registration, or donating to CDM.
