Dear RBC family:
Around 11:00 am 3/23/2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan issued a stay-home order (effective at midnight) except for essential personnel. With that we intend to abide and to simultaneously seek ways to provide services to our RBC flock.
Immediately after the order was broadcast, I communicated with our deacons. Together, we are issuing the following:
- Our services will temporarily be offered online only. We are not canceling services but moving them all to digital distribution. The doors of the church will be locked during service time, allowing no walk-in. Just as we did last Sunday, all of our services will be accessed through a link on our website.
- Our online service times will be the following: Wednesday prayer meeting at 7:00 PM; Sunday morning service at 10:45 am; Sunday evening service at 6:00 pm. We hope that each individual or family would join us from a safe and comfortable place at each service. Perhaps, your neighbor or friend might enjoy the link as well. For example, a lawyer in Miami told me today that, last Sunday, he and his family worshiped with us at the 10:45 am online service.
- We will keep the church platform background in recording and streaming the services and present them as if we had a physical audience – which we will not have. Pray with us that the church of Christ would be strong and triumphant.
The deacons will continue to check on their care groups. If you need to communicate with me, please, do not hesitate to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org
) or message me through facebook messenger.
Please, continue to exercise wise, personal responsibility. Our slogan is Pray. Live. Serve.
May the Lord grant you to grow in grace and wisdom. May He abundantly bless you and yours.
I love you in Christ,
Pastor Hantz Bernard,
Robinson Baptist Church
