You may send in your weekly gifts through our church app, or simply mail in your offering if you so desire. Again, these are not normal times and we will continue to monitor and make changes as appropriate. Please be in prayer, and let the office know of those who may be in need, and offer what assistance you can personally, and do so safely. Thanks for everyone’s support during these days

SONSHINE COMMUNITY TABLE EVENT – APRIL 6TH AT 5:30pm:   Raymond Baptist Church will be holding a Sonshine Community Table Event for food meal items (uncooked and we only have a limited amount) for all who are really in need (not just stocking your pantries). Many are struggling with the basic necessities. Seniors, recently laid off, family members in hospitals, those who are in high-risk health categories and we want to help! This will be a drive up event and no one will be allowed out of their vehicles. There will be someone directing you where to go. The volunteers will be observing all CDC rules as well as the social distancing rules, in saying that unfortunately as much as we would love to visit and catch up with all of you we will not be able to at this time.  This event will only be held this Monday but look for future announcements on our website: www.raymondbaptistchurch.com or check back on our Facebook Page. Please know we are praying for our community and we pray for everyone to stay safe and well.

HANNFORD PICKUP ON SATURDAY’S:  If anyone is in need (Church and Community) of the Hannaford Produce, Bread pickup from Saturday please contact Sandy Unger. 

Let the neighbors know that God is on His throne. This way we can all pray together (at the same time) without being together. Jesus said that “Where two or three are gathered there I am in the midst of them.” We are gathering, just not in the same place. “If My people pray” read 1 Chronicles 7:14 But along with this we will start praying as a group at 12 noon if ALL believers would in your home, in any capacity they are able, and begin to pray we can show the world that God is on HIS Throne and in full control of this entire situation. Do this for 7 days (as Joshua marched around the wall). This is simple and All ages can participate.

As everyone is aware we are in a difficult and trying time right now.  While still remaining safe and well, If there is anyone who would like and can offer help to others, such as checking on people, shopping for someone, preparing a meal, etc. please let me know as I am making a list of people who would like to help in a safe way to others within our Church, families and community. This list will be kept confidential and all efforts would be coordinated through the office.  Please let me know how and if you would like to help in some way.

MISCELLANEOUS

COVID-19 INFORMATION: Recipe for Hand Sanitizer from Beth Reed-Domingo:

The recipe for hand sanitizer is ~ mix 1 part-Aloe Vera Gel to 2 parts-91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol or 190 proof grain alcohol, which is 95% alcohol.  Grain alcohol 190 proof is available in Delaware.  We did 1/2 cup gel to 1 cup alcohol and it worked well.  The gel simply keeps your hands from drying out.

I emptied a liquid soap pump and mixed it in there. 

To Our Raymond and Surrounding Communities: As members of our local clergy group we recognize the concerns that many have during these days of uncertainty with the spread of COVID-19. In situations like these, it is the most vulnerable in our midst that will suffer the most. As pastors of local churches, we want our communities to know that as followers and servants of Jesus Christ we are here to offer whatever care and support that we and our ministries are able. We first encourage community members to be on alert and care for those who are vulnerable around you. Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself” that means avoid situations where you if sick could pass along your illness to others and provide help and assistance to those who may need it. If you or someone you know needs some extra care that you or others could not provide, please let us know and we will try to assist in obtaining the spiritual or physical care that may be needed. In the early church’s history, when disease would spread throughout the cities, and others would flee, it was Jesus’ church that stayed and helped those in need. We may not be able to address all needs, but we are willing to provide the counsel and help that we can in Christ’s name. Also, if you would like to attend a church service, and are unable you are welcome to watch any of our services on-line until this has passed.

COVID-19 INFORMATION:

Recipe for Hand Sanitizer from Beth Reed-Domingo: The recipe for hand sanitizer is ~ mix 1 part-Aloe Vera Gel to 2 parts-91% isopropyl rubbing alcohol or 190 proof grain alcohol, which is 95% alcohol.  Grain alcohol 190 proof is available in Delaware.  We did 1/2 cup gel to 1 cup alcohol and it worked well.  The gel simply keeps your hands from drying out. I emptied a liquid soap pump and mixed it in there. 

To Our Raymond and Surrounding Communities:  

As members of our local clergy group we recognize the concerns that many have during these days of uncertainty with the spread of COVID-19. In situations like these, it is the most vulnerable in our midst that will suffer the most. As pastors of local churches, we want our communities to know that as followers and servants of Jesus Christ we are here to offer whatever care and support that we and our ministries are able. We first encourage community members to be on alert and care for those who are vulnerable around you. Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself” that means avoid situations where you if sick could pass along your illness to others and provide help and assistance to those who may need it. If you or someone you know needs some extra care that you or others could not provide, please let us know and we will try to assist in obtaining the spiritual or physical care that may be needed. In the early church’s history, when disease would spread throughout the cities, and others would flee, it was Jesus’ church that stayed and helped those in need. We may not be able to address all needs, but we are willing to provide the counsel and help that we can in Christ’s name. Also, if you would like to attend a church service, and are unable you are welcome to watch any of our services on-line until this has passed.
