We would like to honour you for putting your hand up to tackle the Samson Course with 106 other men from different corners of South Africa.
May the Lord Bless you and the Holy Spirit guide and teach you in the next few weeks. Remember to enjoy these moments.
If you are unsure about anything, please feel free to ask! If you want to connect with us, please mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Check out the video below to help you understand how to participate in the Samson Course.
To make your upcoming first online chat a bit easier, we have prepared a few ideas for you to share with your group.
Your Group leader will ask you to introduce yourself and tell the other men a bit about yourself and what has been going on in your life the past few months. Below is a guideline to help you prepare for this.
1. Be sure to keep your introduction short 2 to 3 min max, as to make sure the other men also get a chance to speak.
2. Tell then your name and surname. Where are you from? Are you new to LCF?
3. Are you married, do you have children? What’s their names or ages? Is your wife maybe doing the Without Rival course in the Women’s Ministry at LCF?
4. What do you do for a living? Are you happy in your current career. Is there maybe something else you are aspiring to do.
5. How has Covid-19 impacted your life, career, home situation so far? Is everyone you know healthy?
6. Is there something you are looking forward to when Covid-19 is not a threat anymore – Like swimming in the sea 😉
7. Do you have a hobby? Have you been practicing it?
8. What do like to do when you relax?
9. Why did you enroll for the Samson Course? And what may be your expectations during the next 6 weeks?
10. Is there anything you need prayer for?
Use good online and LCF etiquette:
Mute your Zoom or MS Teams when not chatting. (NB)
Give other men a chance to chat.
Put you hand up when you would like to say something. Make sure you are unmuted when you chat.
Help others and be patient – it may be their first Zoom or MS Teams Chat.
Be polite. Do not criticize. Do not force your opinions. Respect each other.
Try not to sit and eat or have the rest of your family or co-workers in thebackground listening in.
You are welcome to bring a cup or two of coffee to the meeting.
Do not talk outside the group – mutual respect builds strong friendships and good character.
Come prepared & expectant – especially spiritually. Let the Holy Spirit work!
