During periods of isolation, some people may need face-to-face conversation and prayer.
You can allow people to schedule visits with you in either or both of the following methods:
- In-person visits. These can still be done with social distance in some cases, while remaining outside if weather allows. This might be near the front door or leaning on the trunk of your car.
- Congregants can schedule to have video chat with you using various providers like , Skype, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp video, or Signal. FaceTime is possible if both you and they have Apple device. Video chat options costs nothing and are quicker.
There still may be people that you will best get in touch with first via telephone, and keeping track through spreadsheet, contact management system, or pencil and paper.
For pre-marital counseling, those can use online resources like SYMBIS.
