From the Office of Bishop La Fayette Scales
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
The main question for some members at this time is when will we reopen? We have been strategically planning for the safety and health of all staff, members and guests. Therefore we will reopen for service on Saturday, August 15, 2020. Our updated service times will be as follows:
In-Person Services Saturday 9:30am /Sunday 9:30am
Virtual Services Saturday 6pm, Sunday 8am & Sunday 11am
We have been refining our practices to ensure the health and safety of all who enter onto Rhema’s campus. We will begin to bring back some staff gradually throughout the month of July in order to prepare for your arrival back into the worship services. We will have Youth Ministry available when service resumes however our Children’s Ministry will continue via our online platform. You can read more details of our new protocols here.
We will be sending periodic updates as we get close to our re-entry. These updates will include a Q&A to our re-entry, details of safety measures being taken and insights into our new procedures to keep you safe.The RCC Leadership will continue to monitor COVID-19 safety recommendations and are remaining agile during this time as you are aware things are changing rapidly.
In our word of encouragement for this week it describes Noah in NLT Genesis 8:6 . Like Noah the Lord has given us grace, faith and favor during this global crisis. The Lord has granted us life, breath and well-being. Your prayers, support and standing together with us have abounded great blessings and made this portion of our journey as a church bearable. Like Noah we have found grace in the eyes of the Lord. We have been in His ark of safety; we have ridden out this portion of the storm and we are well.
Our time for re-entry has come and just as we’ve done over the last several months, we continue to lean into the Holy Spirit to continue to guide us out safely as we re-enterworship together.
