We invite you to join us again on Wednesday for activities for all ages, as well as Sunday morning for family groups and worship. This coming Sunday, October 25, we will remain inside for our worship celebration, so you will have the option of joining us in the worship center, sitting in the fellowship hall (overflow for those who prefer more space), or remaining in your vehicle (and tuned in to 91.1 FM). Come and worship with us through song, prayer, and the preaching of God’s Word.
Some members of our youth praise team will lead us in worship through song, and Pastor Nick Drake will be preaching from Hebrews 8 (“Jesus Provides a Better Covenant”).
Please note that, for the health and safety of those in attendance, we will still ask that people practice social distancing. While masks are not required, they are recommended for the sake of protecting those who are more vulnerable because of health problems (and to make them more comfortable gathering with us).
If you are more comfortable, as mentioned above, you can remain in your vehicle and tune in to 91.1 FM (beginning at 10:35 a.m.) or watch online via our Facebook page. Of course, we do not consider viewing online or listening from your vehicle to be a replacement for gathering with the body of Christ for worship and fellowship, but we understand that during this COVID-19 pandemic, some are simply unable to gather in larger groups. Thus, we are making these options available right now to serve those individuals.
Here is the rundown of our schedule for this week…
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. = Activities for All Ages
–With ministries for all ages (both children and adults), Wednesday evenings provide a great recharge for the middle of the week. The events include our adults’ Bible study fellowship, youth group (for students grades 6-12), TeamKID (for all children who are elementary-aged and below), and nursery (for toddlers and infants).
9:30 a.m. – Family Groups
–Family groups are Bible study fellowships for all ages – children, youth and adults. Nursery is included for infants and toddlers, too. We consider family groups to be an essential ministry for discipleship and relationships.
10:40 a.m. – Morning Worship Service
–Morning worship is an essential time of growing in God’s Word together. It’s that time of the week when most of our church family is all together for the purpose of worshiping our Lord and building up His body. For those who are interested, we also provide nursery (toddlers and infants) and children’s ministry (kindergarten and below) during our morning worship services.
6:00 p.m. – Prayer & Praise Service // Youth Discipleship Bible Study // Children’s Christmas Program Practice
–Prayer & Praise is our Sunday evening worship service when we gather to praise our God, pray for our church family, community, nation, and the world, and talk about how we can better live our lives on mission throughout each day. Also, the Richland Youth (grades 6-12) meet during this hour for their discipleship Bible study. Finally, children grades 1-5 will have their first practice for our upcoming Christmas program. Contact Kate Geppert (firstname.lastname@example.org)or Sarah Moore (email@example.com) for more information.
7:00 p.m. – Deacons’ Meeting
