Sunday Service and Corona Virus Update

 An Open Letter to the Church,

We've found ourselves in the middle of a unique situation, yet what the Lord directs us to do stands the test of time. We are reminded in Scripture, "Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6,7 (NLT)

We are wanting to be respectful of the needs in our community, considering what's best for everyone during this time of the growing awareness of the Coronavirus. So, I wanted to remind you of a few things concerning our services at River Fellowship.

1. We will still be providing the Sunday morning service this Sunday, along with the rest of the Services this week in the Bulletin. And we'll keep you posted as to changes, so stay tuned. As the Lord leads, making decisions on what's best for you and others is encouraged. And seeking the Lord for direction is what we're about as believers. We want you to be Spirit-led.

2. If you feel unsure about your health, aren't feeling well, or are at high risk for the Coronavirus; then we would ask you to stay home, rest, and enjoy our online service. Here's the direct link to Sunday's feed, . Or you can visit our website and click the "Sunday Morning Live" link on the main page, and subscribe.

3. We'll have a team disinfect the frequently touched surfaces, bathrooms, and all the children's ministry rooms and toys. Also, on Sundays, we won't be serving refreshments in the Sanctuary for now, nor will we be serving snacks to the kids in children's ministry. There will be drinking water in the sanctuary, and coffee in the Living Room.

4. We have 3 areas available for church - The Sanctuary main room, the Sanctuary balcony, and the Living Room live feed. So, spread out to maintain some social distancing. Make a point to wash your hands (for 20 seconds, which is about how long it takes to say the Lord's Prayer - another great opportunity!), use the provided hand sanitizer, and resist hugging and shaking hands. Love on each other with smiles and verbal blessings, in Jesus' name! 

5. Prayer is an essential part of the believer's life, and of the church's life. So, pray for our church, our town, or nation, our world. Jesus is stronger than the coronavirus! As I often say, "Pray, hear from the Lord, and do what He says."

Thank you for your patience. We love all of you and believe the Lord has great things in store for us. His perfect love casts out all fear.

Blessings and Thanks,

Pastor Chris, along with the Elders
