Beach Chair Sundays, Updated

River Family,

We've been doing in-person services for Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings for a few weeks now, and it's been wonderful to be back in fellowship together!  We've learned that a few things need to be done better, so we're going to implement some changes.  The biggest change will be providing a safer environment for the most vulnerable of our family.  Hebrews 10:25 reminds us to "not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but encouraging one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."  Along with the live Youtube feed, we have 3 places to meet on Sunday mornings at 10am that are noted below:

1.  Outdoor, behind the Sanctuary.  This is where the live service takes place.  We would ask that people sit with their quarantined groups and stay 6 feet apart from other groups.  And because that distance is hard to maintain while arriving and leaving, have a mask available to wear at those times.

2. Indoor, in the Sanctuary.  This option has the service live on the stage wall, and the video is really good!  Please note, we're implementing that everyone in the Sanctuary is to have a mask on - entering, leaving, and throughout the service.  This will provide an indoor option for the most vulnerable to COVID. Extra masks are provided at each entrance.

3. Indoor, in the Living Room.  Our Fellowship Hall will also be broadcasting the service on the TV.  Please have a mask available for entering and leaving.  Once you're seated, you can remove your mask if you would like.  The chairs are distanced, so please respect others around you.

Also, we're wanting to provide extended fellowship for after the service for anyone available to stay, so we will be providing food often, and maybe some games!  The food will be prepared with great care and safety, and our desire is to make this fellowship time comfortable for everyone.  If someone is wearing a mask, please remember that they're needing others to respect them, love them, and keep some distance.

Wednesday Evening Services are available live on Youtube, and in-person in the Sanctuary, at 7pm.  On Wednesdays, please have a mask available for entering and leaving the Sanctuary. Once you're seated, you can remove your mask if you would like.  Extra masks are provided at each entrance.

Please be "pre-prayered" for gathering together.  Our church family is filled with love, grace, and acceptance; and we want to remember that our gathering is not only a social event, but of a spiritual nature.  We're in a spiritual battleground, and we desire to see others saved by the Lord Jesus, encouraged in worship and the study of the word, and strengthened by the gathering of the saints.  So, be a part of that work, looking for how the Lord would use you to bless others.  Let's be involved in the great work the Lord is doing!

Blessings and peace,

Pastor Chris
