RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

“This is my command: Love each other” (John 15:17).

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and to continue to help them” (Hebrews 6:10).

Praise God.  It is with joy and happiness that there are a lot of church family, some new, that are starting to return to in-house Church, we have missed you! This is largely due to vaccines being provided to those that are in the current CDC categories that want one, and some have already received both vaccines! Just as a reminder to all that RBC is still following CDC Guidelines which require social distancing and masks even for those vaccinated.  We want everyone to continue to be safe and stay well during this pandemic. We check often for changes in the guidelines and as soon as changes are made we will let everyone know of the changes.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS – SPRING FORWARD: Remember to set your clocks forward an hour Saturday night, March 13th. Mark your calendars! This is a good time to replace your batteries in your smoke detectors!

RBC TABLE TALK ~ Feeling a little isolated, unconnected? We have all been through a lot these past months. We have all felt some relationships slipping away. We want to give us an opportunity to begin the process of reconnecting. We want to invite you to join Pastor Kevin on a zoom call for a short time of reflection from scripture, and then an opportunity to just talk with each other. We can talk about getting your garden ready, talk about all the projects you have been doing around the house, talk about a spiritual question you may have, we can just talk with each other and pray. The only two rules; no conversation about politics, no conversation about COVID ~ life is more than these two things that have been defining people for too long. Bring your lunch for a time to begin to reconnect with each other. 

Following are the listed dates for the RBC Table Talk ~ Every week on Wed, until Apr 7, 2021

STEPHEN MINISTRY ~ STEPHEN MINISTRY ~ WHAT DOES THE LOGO OF STEPHEN MINISTRY MEAN? The logo consists of a cross and circle, together with a broken person and a whole person. The broken person stands behind the cross, symbolizing the brokenness in our lives as a result of our sin. The whole person stands in front of the cross because it is through the cross of Jesus that we are made whole. The circle symbolizes both the wholeness we receive through Christ and God’s unending love for us.

  • Pay grants directly to the landlord or utility provider on behalf of the household.
  • Work with a landlord, with the tenant’s permission, to apply for assistance on behalf of their tenant.

The five regional Community Action Partnership (CAP) (Raymond Community Action) agencies will administer applications and payments for the program. Full program guidelines and the NHERAP application (online and a printable form) will be available by March 15, 2021 at www.CAPNH.org.

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

This is my command: Love each other (John 15:17).

God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and to continue to help them (Hebrews 6:10).

 

Feeling a little isolated, unconnected? We have all been through a lot these past months. We have all felt some relationships slipping away. I want to give us an opportunity to begin the process of reconnecting.

Starting on Wednesday, February 24th from 12:00- 12:30pm I want to invite you to join me on a zoom call for a short time of reflection from scripture, and then an opportunity to just talk with each other. We can talk about getting your garden ready, talk about all the projects you have been doing around the house, talk about a spiritual question you may have, we can just talk with each other and pray.

The only two rules; no conversation about politics, no conversation about COVID ~ life is more than these two things that have been defining people for too long.

So, watch your emails for the ZOOM link each week and join me. Bring your lunch for a time to begin to reconnect with each other.  Thanks. Pastor Kevin

The Children’s Ministry provided 12 school backpacks to the Sunview Fire Victims, from pre-school through College. The backpacks included everything needed to replenish their school bags, including hand sanitizer, and toiletries.  We also have available for all age groups (pre-school thru College) available if more are needed at a later time.  If anyone is aware of a need of a back pack, please contact the office.  A huge thank you to everyone who participated and to Tara Swist for coordinating, shopping, filling and delivering the schools bags to the Town for distribution.

We have collected approximately $10,866.00 (and it is still rising) for the Covid-19 Relief Fund and we have helped with Covid-19 assistance in the amount of $5,207.00 to families affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic thus far.  This includes help with rent, mortgage and testing costs for people who do not have insurance but needs to get back to work with a negative test! Thank you!!!!!

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me: (John 17:23).

“God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have

helped His people and to continue to help them” (Hebrews 6:10).

Feeling a little isolated, unconnected? We have all been through a lot these past months. We have all felt some relationships slipping away. I want to give us an opportunity to begin the process of reconnecting.

THIS WEEK: 02/14/2021: ~ “Loved to Action” ~ (John 14:15-31)

NEXT WEEK: “Stuck by Love” (John 15:1-17)

For those who asked, here is a list of differences Pastor Kevin found comparing “volunteering” to “serving”. See what you think…

  • Volunteering comes from my hands, serving comes from my heart
  • Volunteering is on my terms, serving on God’s terms
  • Volunteers keep score, servants make sacrifices
  • Volunteers are time sensitive, servants are need sensitive
  • Volunteers wonder how they look to others; servants wonder how God looks through them to others
  • Volunteering focuses on my convenience, serving focuses on my commitment
  • Volunteering makes you feel superior, serving makes you humble

DUE IN THIS WEEK! SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE: This is Sanctity of Human Life week. Our church is participating in the baby bottle benefit to help support Real Options, (formerly CareNet Pregnancy Center). Pick up a bottle after church or request a bottle from the office and fill it with your spare change or bills. You can also donate online at: www.TheFriendsofLife.org. Baby Bottles will be due back in house by February 14th and to the Office during the timeframe of February 16th through the 18th. For more info, please give Wanda a call at 603-303-5939.

RBC Weekly Newsletter (2/5/21)

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me: (John 17:23).

Paul and Clare Hudson retired in December ~ Join the Missions Team in sending congratulations on February 25, 2021 at 6:30pm via Zoom Contact Mike Chouinard at chouinardmike55@gmail.com for Zoom invitation

If you have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, are planning to travel or planning larger gatherings with people outside your immediate household, please consider if you should return to live Sunday worship service or wait. This would be an act of kindness in potentially protecting people who will gather and reflect the current state guidelines. If anyone has any questions or you want more additional information on the State or RBC Guidelines, please do not hesitate to give the office a call.  Thank you.

THIS WEEK: 02/07/2021: ~ Communion Sunday ~ “Which Way Did He Go?” ~ (John 14:1-14)

NEXT WEEK: “Loved to Action” (John 14:15-31)

For those who asked, here is a list of differences Pastor Kevin found comparing “volunteering” to “serving”. See what you think…

  • Volunteering comes from my hands, serving comes from my heart
  • Volunteering is on my terms, serving on God’s terms
  • Volunteers keep score, servants make sacrifices
  • Volunteers are time sensitive, servants are need sensitive
  • Volunteers wonder how they look to others; servants wonder how God looks through them to others
  • Volunteering focuses on my convenience, serving focuses on my commitment
  • Volunteering makes you feel superior, serving makes you humble

SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE: This is Sanctity of Human Life week. Our church is participating in the baby bottle benefit to help support Real Options, (formerly CareNet Pregnancy Center). Pick up a bottle after church or request a bottle from the office and fill it with your spare change or bills. You can also donate online at: www.TheFriendsofLife.org.

Lamprey Health Care’s Medication Assisted Treatment Program. This program is for their patients who are struggling with opioid and alcohol use disorders.  They use medications in combination with behavioral health and case management services to support patients in their recovery.  They can, also, see people who are not Lamprey Patients as long as they agree to transfer their primary care to Lamprey.  Should you have any questions regarding this program or would like to refer anyone, please contact our Newmarket MAT Nurse, Keith Keller at 659-3106 ext. 7206 or our Raymond MAT nurse, Shareen Lucas at 895-3351 ext. 7376.    It is truly a community effort to support our residents struggling with opioid and alcohol use disorders.

RBC Weekly Newsletter 12/24/20)

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Merry Christmas to All

If you are planning to travel or planning larger gatherings with people outside your immediate household this season, please consider if you should return to live Sunday worship service or wait until after January 3rd. This would be an act of kindness in potentially protecting people who will gather and reflect the current state guidelines. Thank you.

THIS WEEK: CHRISTMAS SEASON 2020 “Searching for Christmas”

12/27/2020:  Disappearing Presents ~ (Luke 2:25-40).

NEXT WEEK: Communion Sunday ~ “Time for a Do-Over” ~ Happy New Year

To start our new year together, and in tune with God as a church, we will be holding a week of prayer and fasting the week of January 3rd- January 10th. It is being suggested that for each of us who attend Raymond Baptist that during that week that we each skip one meal, if you are physically able, and spend time in prayer during your normal meal time. Prayer guides will be provided, and more details will follow. After this past year, as a church, we want to be united by God’s spirit, and His purpose for us as we enter the new year together.

We have added 2 new sections to our Weekly Prayer Request.  If you know of anyone in healthcare and/or is a first responder and would like to add their names to the prayer request, please email the office and it will be added.

YOUTH GROUP: 

Youth Group is now in the Ministry Center. Students will be required to wear masks at all times while at Youth Group. Hand sanitizer will also be available at all times. The building will also be fogged every week to kill any possible germs left behind, and protect from Covid.

Youth Group:

Sundays 3:30pm-5:00pm

Youth Group Ministry Center

Grades 5th – 12th grade

Masks and social distancing are required.

No Youth Group December 27th!

Important information:  It was decided that if we have to cancel an in person Youth Group even for a week or an extended amount of time, we will have a google meets meeting instead.

Junior High: 3:30pm

Senior High: 4:30pm

This would give time to share our week with each other and share in a lesson as well.

Matt would email or text out a google meets invitation for all students to be able to join.
