We invite you to join us for fellowship and worship. This coming Sunday, January 23, as usual, 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 tuning in to Facebook Live. Come and worship with us through song, prayer, giving, and the preaching of God’s Word.
Some members of our praise team will lead us in worship through song, and Pastor Nick will share a message from Zechariah 3:1-10 (“Renewed and Restored”).
If you are unable to join us in person, you can watch online via our Facebook page. Of course, we do not consider viewing online 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 to serve those individuals.
Here is the rundown of our schedule for this week…
TUESDAY, JANUARY 18
6:00 – 7:00 a.m. = Men’s Fellowship
–This three-times-per-week fellowship has no particular agenda or required commitment. Rather, come as you are able and join us for fellowship and encouragement. Nick will have coffee and snacks ready and be available to visit on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 a.m. and Saturdays at 8 a.m.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19
5:45 p.m. = Evening Meal
–Our Wednesday evening meal is year-round and is an excellent time of fellowship and encouragement. Everyone is invited to join us for great food and fun together.
6:30 p.m. = Adults’ Bible Study Fellowship / TeamKID / Youth Group
–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 (from 6:30 – 7:30), youth group (from 6:15 – 7:30 for grades 6-12), and TeamKID (from 6:15 – 7:30 for all children who are elementary-aged and below).

SATURDAY, JANUARY 22

–The women and men each have separate fellowship gatherings on Saturday mornings from 8-9. You are welcome to come and go as you are able. The women meet in the fellowship hall, and the men meet in the prayer chapel (Carson’s Family Group’s room). Invite others and join us for free coffee (or tea and/or lemonade) and snacks.
SUNDAY, JANUARY 23
9:30 a.m. = Family Groups (aka Sunday School)
–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 (and live on Facebook)
–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.
12:00 p.m. = Finance Team Meeting
4:00 p.m. = Deacons’ Meeting & Training
6:00 p.m. = Prayer & Praise // Youth Group
–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.
