Coronavirus Update #20 (7/1/21)

“Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together!” (Psalm 34:3). 

Dear Rivermont Family and Friends,  

The pastors express profound thanks to God for your efforts to reengage worship in the Rivermont sanctuary. Together with you, we have enjoyed returning to 8:30 and 11:00 AM services with Sunday School beginning at 9:45. Embracing worship and discipleship on campus has been exciting with much thanksgiving to the Lord. We love seeing your smiling faces and joyful expressions all around.  Worship overflow has resumed in the John Knox Room, while worship outdoors has been discontinued. 

The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper

For the Lord’s Supper this Sunday and on August 1, we’ll enjoy the use of the traditional bread and the cup with trays located in one of four stations on the main floor of the sanctuary and one location for the balcony.  For overflow worship in the John Knox Room, and for those with mobility or health concerns in the sanctuary, we will still have the prefilled and sealed communion cups available. If you need a sealed communion cup in the sanctuary, simply raise your hand while seated as the elder approaches your pew.  Gluten-free bread will also be available on the tables on the organ side of the sanctuary. Listen carefully to our instructions and enjoy the process. As always, please be in prayer for worship and come expecting to be blessed by Christ.  

Opportunities to Serve

During the Coronavirus Season, the ministries of our new Livestream Team serving in tandem with our Sound Team have been superlative.  We continue to hear of members, visitors, and missionaries who worship with us on Sunday mornings because of this outreach.  With the commitment to continue our Livestream worship with on-demand availability through our YouTube channel, we have two needs.  Specifically, we need four volunteers for the Livestream Team and two more volunteers for the Sound Team to keep these ministries viable and enjoyable for those who serve.  If you’re able to serve, please contact Pastor Mike Palombo by clicking here.  We praise God for the expanding opportunities to share the Gospel and to glorify His name!

In Christ, 

Pastor Ron, together with Pastors David, Brett, Mike, and Shane
