The Post-Quarantine Church Forum

Discuss, envision and strategize for the future with church leaders, presented by Heritage 21 and The Christian Chronicle.

The virus changed everything. And nothing.

A year after the advent of COVID-19, some congregations are back to in-person worship. Others remain online. Many try to do both. Christians fellowship as best they can in masks, 6 feet apart. Youth event and mission trips are canceled, many for the second year in a row.

But the gospel call is unchanged: seek and save the lost, see that God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

The Christian Chronicle and our friends at Heritage 21 Foundation invite you to The Post-Quarantine Church Forum, a series of webinars in which we discuss, envision and strategize for a post-pandemic future.

Online gatherings are offered at multiple times on the last Thursdays of April to August 2021.


As the vaccine rollout crawls along, church members are beginning to envision life in a post-pandemic world — and to ponder the big questions:

• Will our brothers and sisters return to the pews? Should they? And when?
• What will worship services look like going forward? In person? Online? Both?
• What about Bible classes and youth events? What about small groups?
• What should we be doing now to prepare for the end of this pandemic?
• What have we lost, and what have we learned?

In addition to the Post-Quarantine Church Forum, you can find discussions and resources in our ongoing series, The Post-Pandemic Church.

Before the pandemic, faith groups including Churches of Christ were in decline in the United States.

Across the nation, believers are saying that going back to the way things were just isn’t enough.

We hope to provide some advice, some best practices, and answers to the tough questions as we prayerfully ponder the post-pandemic church.
