As some of you may be aware, starting May 1st, Governor Pritzker has recognized the church as an essential establishment and the state is allowing church services to resume at a small number with proper social distancing.
This amendment is exciting. Yet, for precautionary measures, we have chosen to not reopen. Instead we will continue with our online services. Your health and wellbeing are our #1 priority. Even though we miss worshipping in-person, we know that time will come.
Until then, continue to enjoy our online services @ 11:15 am on Sundays, view our past services on Facebook or YouTube, enjoy past videos of our Daniel Blast, look out for our premier issue of our RCC newsletter, attend our next GROW Zoom class starting May 20th-June 17th (details will be available soon), and join our RCC Community page on Facebook. In short, church family, let us keep in touch.
We are praying for you and we are seeking God on the process of reopening. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy and we will notify you as soon as the church building is reopened.
I said in my last letter, Restoration Christian Church wants to ensure the health and well-being of our local community of faith. As you know, the CDC has new health requirements regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and RCC will follow those guidelines. Starting this Sunday, we will be moving our remaining March services online.
This Sunday, 3/22 @ 10:00 am, we will upload a sermon on our website & YouTube channel to view.
On 3/29 @ 10:00 am, we will Livestream our service allowing you, your family and friends to view in real time. We will have our usual format: worship, welcome, offering message, sermon, and a closing call to Christ.
Kidzville and R3 will be using an E-learning format that you can learn more about on their social media pages. We will suspend all midweek programs and rehearsals until further notice. These programs and events include: Celebrate Recovery, Family Night, Dance Practice, Choir Practice, Thursday Prayer, TRUE, TRUE retreat, and Men of Impact.
Pastor Pat and I will continue to observe regular office hours while avoiding an excess of 10 or more people in the church.
Connecting with you is still important to us. Which is why we are asking you to follow or like our social media pages: Restoration Christian Church, R3, and Kidzville. We will update these pages regularly to keep you in the loop. Our website is also another great place to stay connected. In addition, communicate regularly with our church family. We are in this together and by sending a text or calling someone on the phone is a great way to spread God’s love.
Please note: After our 3/29 service, we will assess week by week when we can have Sunday service at the church. In the meantime, stay home, enjoy our online services, and invite a friend to view us too.
Thank you for understanding and continue to pray for our nation. #ChristAboveTheCrisis
