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.

Sundays 3:30pm-5:00pm

Youth Group Ministry Center

Grades 5th – 12th grade

Masks and social distancing are required.

Sunday’s Lesson (11/22/2020):

“Finding Your Place” 2 Timothy 2:22 – “So flee youthful passion and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord.”

We will look at what we can take from this verse and apply it to how we can find our place through a relationship with God.

Important information:

Unfortunately, we were unable to have Youth Group Sunday. We as leaders are looking for ways to alleviate that problem. We 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.

Reminder:

Sunday, November 29th ~ There will be no Youth Group, Happy Thanksgiving.

Director of Youth, Raymond Baptist Church

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Sunday is Communion Sunday. Following Sunday’s service, there will be an additional offering plate or you can contribute on-line for the Deacon’s Fund which is used to help people in our community.

The RBC Gardens have been beautiful this year, hope many of you had an opportunity to enjoy them.  It is now that time of year for Fall clean up! Please join the RBC garden crew Saturday October 10th from 8 -11 AM for some great fellowship as we work together putting the gardens to bed for the Winter! If you have any questions, please call Kathy Hassenpflug at 603-706 -3544.

For anyone interested there will be a get together in the parking lot on October 18th, after service to have a fellowship lunch together in the parking lot after church on that Sunday. Everyone please bring their own lunch, chair and masks. Weather permitting.

Thank You Jesus! We are working on a Video for Thanksgiving Sunday service and we loved to hear from you! Please send in A quick email or video sharing (in one or two sentences) one thing you are thankful for. You can send your responses to rbcbeingthechurch@gmail.com “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” Psalm 107:1

The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 5:17).

This is Clergy Appreciation Month and we want to say “Thank You” to Pastor Kevin and the Elders. We know that leading and counseling, teaching and encouraging can be tough work (especially in these days). So we just wanted to say Thank you. We appreciate all you do to shine the light in a dark world and all you do to give hope and encouragement to all.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these…(Matthew 19:13-14)

A special thank you to Matt Chouinard and Tara Swist for their service, sacrifice, and love of children. Both your work is a gift of God’s grace to the Church.

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS – FALL BACK: Remember to set your clocks back an hour Saturday night, October 31st. Mark your calendars!

Happy Fall and we are glad for all who have returned and for all who are watching online or on Channel 13.  Service time is 10:30am. We want to thank everyone for their understanding as we have adapted our worship amidst the ongoing COVID19 chapter. This is a kind reminder that for safety of all of our attendees that please on Sundays wait to be seated before service by an Usher once you have checked in, as well as being escorted from your seat after the service has ended and that masks are required.  Please feel free after service to chat in the parking lot, maintaining socially distanced but due to the check-in process and procedures currently in place please do not meet or gather together in the Foyer. Enjoy the beautiful Fall weather and take advantage of the prayer garden to pray or meet with someone. Continue to pray with us as we learn how to best be the church in changing times.

I want to thank those who were able to attend our Annual Meeting last week, and those who joined via Zoom. Here are a few quick updates for all.

  1. Amidst all the interruptions these past six months caused by the pandemic, the church finished the year financially “in the black.” We did so because of the faithfulness of God, God’s people believing in this ministry, showing their support and the great stewardship of ministries.

 

  1. We were also able to welcome in three new members, Terry Austrew and Ron and Donna Zabloudil.

 

  1. We also voted in some new people to office; Mike Chouinard is our new Moderator. Mike also joins Ed Burgess to our Board of Elders. Our current Board now stands as Scott Osterhuber- Chair, Ted Whitten, Mark Baldwin, Jim Belknap, Mike Chouinard, and Ed Burgess. Please be in prayer for this team, and the staff as together we lead the church forward.

 

  1. For anyone who was not at the Annual Meeting, copies of the Annual Report and Financial Statements are available from the church office.
 

Just a note for all of us. As we move forward through the months ahead, we will still be trying to discover how to do ministry as this pandemic will still be with us for the foreseeable future. This has been hard for many. May we be people of great patience, flexibility, grace and prayer with each other as we try to plot a course forward as we monitor community conditions. We live by faith, but also by wisdom that God provides.

As a church, let us be in prayer as we continue to work to advance the mission God has called us to- the intentional proclamation of the gospel and the advancement of His kingdom by making mature disciples of Jesus. Let us do with great reliance upon God, grace towards each other, and commitment to His mission for us.

As I finish 15 years here this month, I look forward to what can happen as we serve together.

YOUTH GROUP:

Impact Youth

Fall schedule and Planning

As September quickly approaches Impact Youth would like to share our plans for the upcoming year as we continue to work through the best practices as we continue to deal with Coronavirus.

With this hard time upon us we are looking at the best way to serve the youth of Raymond Baptist Church. 

The Leaders have met and talked about these issues. This is where we feel God is leading us at least the short term. We will be running Small Groups from Sunday September 13th through November 22nd. I will give you the breakdown of the small groups and the materials we will be using to help our students grow in this tough time in our nation. 

First I would like to share some guidelines during this time. All Small Groups will be held outside in the courtyard of the Ministry Center. We have put in a fire pit, set up a tent and will provide games that are social distancing appropriate (we are looking for a Corn hole set, and ladder gold if anyone could donate). The building will be open only for use of a bathroom. We require all students to have social distance at all times while attending their small groups. During lesson time we will maintain 6 ft. around the fire pit. 

TIMES OF SMALL GROUP AND MATERIAL

Junior High (5th– 8th grade) Sunday, 3:30pm-5:00pm

Pastor will be preaching on the Book of John starting in September and continuing with that theme we have chosen for the Jr. High to Study John as well.

The book we are using is, “John, The Gospel of Light and Life.” by Adam Hamilton. 

Corey and Jenn Walker will be heading up this group. 

Senior High Girls (9th – 12th grade) Sunday, 5:00pm-6:30pm

The book the girls will be using is, “Define” by Alex and Stephen Kendrick.

A book to discover who we are in Christ and finding our value in Him. 

Katie Chouinard will be heading up this group.

Senior High Boys (9th – 12th Grade) Sunday, 6:30pm-8:00pm

The book the boys will be using is, “Thrive” Dare to Live Like Jesus by Kevin Johnson.

A book to help young men live life as Jesus intended. 

Matt Chouinard will be heading up this group.

Matt Chouinard will be overseeing all the groups and will communicate with parents on a regular basis. Again it is our intent to run these Groups from September 13th – November 22nd. We ask that students dress appropriately for the weather. Students will also be responsible for bringing their books every week. If you have concerns, comments or communication please address with Matt Chouinard. We look to serve your students well through this time.

In Christ,

Matt Chouinard

dividerCHILDRENS MINISTRY:

Hello Everyone,

What has Impact Children’s Ministry looked like during the Covid-19 Pandemic? I can honestly say it has been different, but like many Children’s Ministry leaders, I have spent a lot of time in prayer and asking God to show me a path that Raymond Baptist Church can do remotely. He answered!

Thankfully we live in the Technology Era, so emails, texting, phone calls, and using media and Zoom to connect to families has been vital to the ministry. Some things have worked, while other things have not.  It is all a learning curve. I have spent many hours each week planning for the “reopening” and writing notes to the children, families and staff, and taking online seminars to be informed of how to keep ministry moving. 

Impact Children’s Ministry had many opportunities for families and children in our community to connect. The Snail-Mail Club had 9 children participate, Zoom Club 2:52 with Jordan has been very rewarding for the children, CEF of NH has had weekly lessons posted on our website, and Impact Adventure Camp 2 Go reached 22 Families and approximately 43 children ages 3 – 8th grade, in our local community and beyond.

Now, moving forward, beginning September 20, we will have Club 2:52 for children ages 3 – 5th grade downstairs in the Great Room, Children’s Ministry rooms, and utilize outdoor space (weather permitting). 

We will use the following guidelines for this ministry:

  • Face Masks required by teachers and children
  • Social distance Spacing
  • Reduce number of children in classrooms
  • Hand Sanitizer and cleaning protocols
  • Individualized materials for each child
  • If your child is sick or has been exposed to someone who has been sick, please keep your child at home.

Process:

  • Preregistration each week will help ensure the correct amount of staff needed to provide a safe experience for families. Go to raymondbatistchurch.com to preregister. You will receive a confirmation email after registering.
  • Children will check in with family in church foyer.  Staff will assist children to the Great Room while parents/guardians continue into the sanctuary.
  • Children will participate in “Video Worship” geared for children, Bible Lesson, and small group lessons and activity using individualized material.
  • At the End of Service: children will be brought to the foyer for pick up. We ask the parents/guardians remain upstairs for social distancing protocols.
  • If your child is sick or has been exposed to someone who has been sick, please keep your child at home.
  • During the week, all areas and materials will be cleaned meeting CDC guidelines.

Impact Children’s Ministry will continue providing resources through different forms of media on the Raymond Baptist Church Website and App, as well as continuing with Zoom lessons. This ministry thanks you for entrusting us to serve you and ask that you continue to be flexible as we navigate through this journey.

If you have questions or concerns, please call the church office and Tara will return your call.

Proposed Covid-19 Reopening Guidance for Ministries Fall 2020

As we enter this new phase of our community life, the leadership team of the church has taken time to evaluate our current conditions and determine best practices for us as a church community moving into fall. Please know that we will continue to keep abreast of our community conditions and these guidelines could change as we move through the fall. As we move later into the fall we will examine these guidelines again.

It is very evident that many have formed their own opinions as to the severity of this disease. Please know that these guidelines are open for explanations, but not debate. These protocols have been chosen to help to protect people without violating current health recommendations by DHHS and CDC guidelines. Please continue to pray with us as we track this throughout the fall.

Starting September 1, 2020

Outside Groups to the Church

With the exception of the Red Cross, no outside groups will be allowed to use our facilities. We will evaluate this again before November 1st.  This will help us best understand how to handle others in the buildings as we start with our own ministries.

Raymond Baptist Church Ministries Starting September 1st.

  • A written policy will be given to all ministries and the ministry leaders will be asked to acknowledge and sign that they understand the guidelines.
  • ALL events, meetings, gatherings MUST be scheduled through the church office. No keys may be shared, no random meetings.
  • At this time only the Great Room is available to be used. This will help in maintaining proper sanitizing of our facilities. Office and Ministry Center space is not available.
  • Social distancing (6 feet) must be maintained between group participants. Group leader is responsible to monitor. Note that this may limit meeting size. Size of group may not exceed 50 at this time.
  • Masks must be worn at all times in the building. No exceptions.
  • No food preparation or serving at this time in the building. Outdoors food preparation and serving is allowed with appropriate social distancing. Disposable dinnerware is required.
  • Each group must have a designated person, and inform the office who will be responsible for sanitizing the Great Room, bathrooms and all touch surfaces, counters, door handles etc. after use.
  • Group size of 8 or under can wipe down all surfaces. Groups over 8 will be responsible for “air fogging” all spaces used. Training on the use of the equipment will be provided to a person responsible for each group by Ted Whitten.  Machine is light weight and easy to use and if done effectively should only take about 25 minutes after the group event.

Thank you for your understanding during these challenging days.
