Coronavirus Update #13 (6-25-20)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).
Dear Rivermont Family and Friends,
The pastors rejoice in God’s goodness and kindness as we navigate this season of challenge and opportunity. We express our thanksgiving and seek your ongoing support and prayer.
Thank you for your support in honoring guidelines from the Governors’ Office and the CDC. You have demonstrated the love of Christ and respect for government authority in social distancing and in wearing face coverings. We also appreciate your willingness to sign-up for the 8:00 and 11:00 am worship services to make sure we serve well.
Anticipating Livestream Worship
In addition to the 8:00 and 11:00 am services in the sanctuary, we plan to offer Livestream on-line worship this Sunday! We hope to maintain this on-line option as both ministry and outreach. We will Livestream the 8:00 am service and make this service available on demand shortly after 9:00 am.
With appreciation to Pastor Mike Palombo and member Micah Johnson for their creativity in implementing this new ministry, you’ll find three options to connect to the Livestream:
- Visit our direct site by clicking here.
- Watch the service through the Rivermont channel on YouTube by clicking here. If there are multiple guests on the website at the same time, the YouTube channel may provide the most consistent connection.
- Access the Livestream option from the Rivermont website (www.rivermont.org). Under the RESOURCES tab, you’ll find options for on-line worship, the pastor’s devotional, Preparing for the Lord’s Day, Coronavirus Updates, and more.
Supporting Ministry Teams for Worship
We are currently building a new Livestream Team along with supporting our existing Sound Team. The Livestream and Sound Teams will labor in tandem on Sunday mornings to maintain quality sound in the sanctuary as well as proper support for our on-line outreach. This ministry will be dependent on lay leadership capacity, which means, your labor of love! We ask you to prayerfully consider your passion and participation for serving on either the emerging Livestream Team or the existing Sound Team. Please reply to Janet Freshour by clicking here with your questions and/or willingness to give of yourself.
With Governor Northam’s plan to move Virginia into Phase 3 of reopening on Wednesday, July 1, we are reviewing ongoing requirements for social distancing and face coverings. Please continue to pray for guidance and unity as we long to gather for worship, discipleship, and fellowship!
Pastor Ron, together with Pastors David, Brett, Mike, and Shane
