RR Coronavirus Update 3-16-2020

This is the initial RR Coronavirus update.

  • For the health and safety of our congregation and community we are canceling Saturday worship this weekend and offering our two Sunday worship services as online events available through Royal Redeemer’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RoyalRedeemer/  We will be sending out worship materials in advance which will assist you in your worship at home.  We were able to offer worship as a Facebook event for the first time last weekend and received very positive feedback from those who participated online.
  • We are likewise canceling most scheduled events this week.  We will be offering our Lent study on Prayer as a Facebook event on Wednesday evening from 6:30-7:30pm.  The Saturday work day, working outdoors to mulch the church grounds, is still on.
  • We are creating a page for our website where we will post links for online events as well as the latest updates on the impact of coronavirus at Royal Redeemer as well as our response.
  • Our Care Team is working on a campaign to contact and check in with the more at-risk members of our congregation.  We have had a good number of people offer to assist anyone in need.
  • We are evaluating upcoming events such as Confirmation Day and the women’s retreat and will communicate as details become available.
  • We have received no news of anyone at Royal Redeemer being infected at this time.
