RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

THIS SUNDAY ~ WELCOME BACK (ALL POLICIES AND PROCEDURES STILL REMAIN IN EFFECT)

This Sunday and for the remainder of the summer, our Facebook Live Stream will be at 9:00am and not 10:30.

Reminders for arrival on Sunday“If you need to be dropped off at the door for health reasons, or may need extra time to be seated, please arrive at 8:30. All others will be admitted to the church starting at 8:45. Please maintain your social distancing outside at 8:45 as delineated by the pavement markers until the doors are open.”

Regarding Sundays all are welcome but for those who are not feeling well, have a temperature, or are not ready at this time, or are unable to attend for any reason, we will continue serving you through our Facebook Live broadcast, and the local Raymond Town Channel 13 from which you can watch and worship at home or wherever you may be during the week.

Because our priority is to ensure a safe and reliable return to Sunday Morning Worship, please note, until further notice all church buildings will remain closed to any group meetings regardless of size. This will help to ensure any cleaning processes that will be in place during the week will not be compromised and potentially inhibit our gathering on Sunday. We will continue to monitor this throughout the summer.

If you choose to come in person on Sunday, the following safety guidelines will be in effect. You may agree or disagree with the plan in place, that is your prerogative. You may voice your thoughts to the elders, names are listed below. Please do not plan on attending if you are unwilling to abide with the policies we will have in place. Sunday at the door is not the time to have that discussion, or make a point, but do so now. Again, we feel this plan is in the best interest of our entire community- regardless of personal opinion. We all pray that these guidelines will be short-term and can be relaxed as the pandemic eases locally and worldwide, however we reserve the right to reset guidelines if community conditions change. This will be a process of return for all of us.

Summer Sermon Series: “What’s Normal” ~ “Tolerating Tension in Transition”. (Acts 11:1-18).

Pastor Kevin will be out of the office from 7/13-7/26.  

MINISTRY LEADERS: It’s that time again even in the midst of Covid-19!

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

THIS SUNDAY ~ RE-OPENING ~ WELCOME BACK

Regarding Sundays, for those who are not feeling well, have a temperature, or are not ready at this time, or are unable to attend for any reason, we will continue serving you through our Facebook Live broadcast, and the local Raymond Town Channel 13 from which you can watch and worship at home or wherever you may be during the week.

Because our priority is to ensure a safe and reliable return to Sunday Morning Worship, please note, until further notice all church buildings will remain closed to any group meetings regardless of size. This will help to ensure any cleaning processes that will be in place during the week will not be compromised and potentially inhibit our gathering on Sunday. We will continue to monitor this throughout the summer.

Following is a reminder on the policy and procedure for re-opening at this time.

Sunday Worship Requirements: For those who would like to attend in person, please know that we will be following safety guidelines designed to keep us all well while helping ensure the good health of all during this challenging time. These guidelines are not about fear or control and are everything to do with simply following Jesus’ teaching of considering others before yourself, serving one another, and uniting in worship regardless of our individual preferences.

Gov. Sununu’s guidelines on the surface seem too short, but read it in their entirety, there is more than is being reported in the media. They also include compliance with approved CDC guidelines and best practices, which, to the best of ability will honor to protect the vulnerable amongst us.

If you choose to come in person on Sunday, the following safety guidelines will be in effect. You may agree or disagree with the plan in place, that is your prerogative. You may voice your thoughts to the elders, names are listed below. Please do not plan on attending if you are unwilling to abide with the policies we will have in place. Sunday at the door is not the time to have that discussion, or make a point, but do so now. Again, we feel this plan is in the best interest of our entire community- regardless of personal opinion. We all pray that these guidelines will be short-term and can be relaxed as the pandemic eases locally and worldwide, however we reserve the right to reset guidelines if community conditions change. This will be a process of return for all of us.

Sunday Morning Guidelines for Attendance Starting Sunday July 5th 9:00AM.

You will be asked at the door if you are feeling ill in anyway or are in a high-risk health category. If so, please stay home and continue to worship with us from there.

Masks will be required for all. If you do not have a mask, we will be glad to provide one for you at the door.

Wearing of masks at this juncture will be mandatory for all who are physically able to do so. Masks protect others. Masks help our vulnerable who may attend. Masks are a way of saying we care about others and are willing to place their interest above my personal preferences. At this time, we will reserve the right to ask you not to enter the building if you are unwilling to abide by this.

Attendance will be taken of every person entering the building so that if a possible exposure occurs on a Sunday morning you may be contacted.    

Seating will be greatly reduced according to guidelines. We will be setting up according to the six-foot social distancing guidelines from the CDC. This number will be different than the 40% capacity number that has been advertised. Our capacity cannot exceed the space required to provide six feet among attendees.

Family units may sit together. All others will be required to have a six-foot separation from the nearest person. Ushers will ask you to move if your seat is too close to a non-family member.

You will be ushered to a seat, and dismissal will be regulated by the ushers.

We may or may not need reserved seating but we reserve the right to ask for reserved seating if needed.

While we will continue to worship with music, there will be no congregational singing at this time. It has been demonstrated and documented the rapidity of the spread of disease via singing over normal speech.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ENTERING THE BUILDING: Entrance doors to the church will not open until 8:45 a.m. Please remain in your car, or at a safe distance of six feet while standing outside. There will be not seating available during this time so if you are dropped off at Church on Sunday mornings, please plan on arriving at 8:30am so that we can get you comfortable into the Church and in your seat in a timely manner.

During this phase of limited re-opening, there will be no child care or children’s church. Children must remain with the appropriate adult during Sunday mornings at all times.

During this phase of limited re-opening there will be no Youth Group.

To help eliminate handling of common objects, the ushers will not collect your tithes and offerings—please place them in the designated basket located at the back of the worship center, or continue online giving. Please bring your own Bibles if you have one.

Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the building—please use them often, especially after you have touched an object (such as a door or a pen). All hard surfaces will be disinfected throughout the morning by a sanitizing team.

Please love each other from a distance. No hugging, fist-bumping or hand-shaking (unless they’re members of your own family).

Restrooms are limited to no more than 2 at a time. Please clean all surfaces when done and minimize trips during service is possible.

During this phase of limited re-opening, coffee and other beverages and food will not be served.

Please do not congregate in the Foyer before, during or after the service. You will be directed outside immediately after service. You are welcomed to social-distance visit outdoors after service (weather permitting).

MOST IMPORTANT: Please PRAY for all of our Raymond Baptist Church family, whether in attendance or worshiping from home during these difficult times.

Reopening Letter from Pastor Kevin (6-8-2020)

June 8, 2020

To the Raymond Baptist Church Family:

After much prayer, discussion and research the leadership and staff are excited to announce that following the guidance of both Governor Sununu’s recent order, and desiring to be in compliance with the CDC guidelines, Raymond Baptist Church will again be opening our doors for our worship gathering starting Sunday, Sunday July 5th, 2020 at 9:00am.

The leadership team believes that this startup date best fits us as a church. This date will be a disappointment to some. Some will believe this is too late, some too early. We chose this date, not based on other church’s decisions, nor pressure, but because we felt it gave us the time that the team needed to best clean and prepare our facility, and put into place the necessary teams of people to ensure the safety of all who may choose to attend at this time. This decision is not based upon any one person’s, or group’s preferences, but because it best cares for the church as a whole.

Because our priority is to ensure a safe and reliable return to Sunday Morning Worship, please note, until further notice all church buildings will remain closed to any group meetings regardless of size. This will help to ensure any cleaning processes that will be in place during the week will not be compromised and potentially inhibit our gathering on Sunday. We will continue to monitor this throughout the summer.

Sunday Worship Requirements Phase 1.

Regarding Sundays, for those who are not feeling well, have a temperature, or are not ready at this time, or are unable to attend for any reason, we will continue serving you through our Facebook Live broadcast, and the local Raymond Town Channel 13 from which you can watch and worship at home or wherever you may be during the week.

For those who would like to attend in person, please know that we will be following safety guidelines designed to keep us all well while helping ensure the good health of all during this challenging time. These guidelines are not about fear or control and are everything to do with simply following Jesus’ teaching of considering others before yourself, serving one another, and uniting in worship regardless of our individual preferences.

Gov. Sununu’s guidelines on the surface seem too short, but read it in their entirety, there is more than is being reported in the media. They also include compliance with approved CDC guidelines and best practices, which, to the best of our ability will honor to protect the vulnerable amongst us.

If you choose to come in person on Sunday, the following safety guidelines will be in effect. You may agree or disagree with the plan in place, that is your prerogative. You may voice your thoughts to the elders, names are listed below. Please do not plan on attending if you are unwilling to abide with the policies we will have in place. Sunday at the door is not the time to have that discussion, or make a point, but do so now. Again, we feel this plan is in the best interest of our entire community- regardless of personal opinion. We all pray that these guidelines will be short-term and can be relaxed as the pandemic eases locally and worldwide, however we reserve the right to reset guidelines if community conditions change. This will be a process of return for all of us.

Sunday Morning Guidelines for Attendance Starting Sunday July 5th 9:00am.

  • You will be asked at the door if you are feeling ill in anyway or are in a high-risk health category. If so, please stay home and continue to worship with us from there.
  • Masks will be required for all. If you do not have a mask, we will be glad to provide one for you at the door.
  • Wearing of masks at this juncture will be mandatory for all who are physically able to do so. Masks protect others. Masks help our vulnerable who may attend. Masks are a way of saying we care about others and are willing to place their interest above my personal preferences. At this time, we will reserve the right to ask you not to enter the building if you are unwilling to abide by this.
  • Attendance will be taken of every person entering the building so that if a possible exposure occurs on a Sunday morning you may be contacted.
  • Seating will be greatly reduced according to guidelines. We will be setting up according to the six-foot social distancing guidelines from the CDC. This number will be different than the 40% capacity number that has been advertised. Our capacity cannot exceed the space required to provide six feet among attendees.
  • Family units may sit together. All others will be required to have a six-foot separation from the nearest person. Ushers will ask you to move if your seat is too close to a non-family member.
  • You will be ushered to a seat, and dismissal will be regulated by the ushers.
  • We may or may not need reserved seating but we reserve the right to ask for reserved seating if needed.
  • While we will continue to worship with music, there will be no congregational singing at this time. It has been demonstrated and documented the rapidity of the spread of disease via singing over normal speech.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ENTERING THE BUILDING: Entrance doors to the church will not open until 8:45 a.m. Please remain in your car, or at a safe distance of six feet while standing outside.
  • During this phase of limited re-opening, there will be no child care or children’s church. Children must remain with the appropriate adult during Sunday mornings at all times.
  • During this phase of limited re-opening there will be no Youth Group.
  • To help eliminate handling of common objects, the ushers will not collect your tithes and offerings—please place them in the designated basket located at the back of the worship center, or continue online giving. Please bring your own Bibles if you have one.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be located throughout the building—please use them often, especially after you have touched an object (such as a door or a pen). All hard surfaces will be disinfected throughout the morning by a sanitizing team.
  • Please love each other from a distance. No hugging, fist-bumping or hand-shaking (unless they’re members of your own family).
  • Restrooms are limited to no more than 2 at a time. Please clean all surfaces when done and minimize trips during service is possible.
  • During this phase of limited re-opening, coffee and other beverages and food will not be served.
  • Please do not congregate in the Foyer before, during or after the service. You will be directed outside immediately after service. You are welcomed to social-distance visit outdoors after service (weather permitting).
  • MOST IMPORTANT: Please PRAY for all of our Raymond Baptist Church family, whether in attendance or worshiping from home during these difficult times.

Continue to Stay Connected to Raymond Baptist Church: Facebook Live (every Sunday at 10:30am); Raymond Baptist Church App – Download for Free; Channel 13 – Raymond TV; Raymond Baptist Church Website: www.raymondbaptistchurch.com or via email at marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com

If you would like to discuss any of this, you are asked to contact one of the church elders. Please do not deluge the office with comments.

Thanks to all and looking forward to beginning this journey back.

Pastor Kevin

RBC Weekly Newsletter (5/15/20)

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Greetings to all,

I hope all is well with each of you. I know this has been a lot longer than anyone had originally expected, but I look forward when we are together again

I wanted to let everyone know of a few things that have been happening, and how we have been able to help our communities through your gifts for our Easter offering, and through other means.

Over the last weeks we have been able to distribute dozens of Hannaford cards and have helped multiple families through the food pantry ministry. Anyone within our own congregation has received assistance they have needed when the need has been revealed. I have been thrilled to see individuals in the church taking on direct care and concern for those they have come across who have been in need.

We have directly connected with many of the small business food service owners in the area and provided help to employees directly who had been furloughed during this time. All of whom have expressed their appreciation. What gratifies me is the reputation you as a church have in this community. “Raymond Baptist, that’s the place where people find help” is the common response.

One of the greatest helps we have been able to offer has been to help dispose of medical debt for many on the verge of total financial and life collapse. In cooperation with several other NH churches, we were able to join to eliminate about $750,000 in medical debt for those in greatest need in our state. Thank you for making that possible. One of the great benefits has been seeing people putting their faith into practice- making meals, caring for people in need- being the church as God intended it. Thanks to all.

Now to the question that is on everyone’s mind- “When will we be together again?” As a leadership team, staff we continue to put together a plan for our eventual, gradual regathering. Please know what ever process we put into place- and it will be a process, we will listen closely to the guidelines that will be given by CDC and the state. This past Wednesday I participated in a conference call with Sen. Bob Guida who is chairing the sub-group for Houses of Worship that will coordinate with Health and Human Services to prepare guidelines for us to follow. This should be forthcoming very shortly.  We want to be sure that we do not unnecessarily endanger those amongst us who could be vulnerable. During the conference call with Sen. Guida it was made abundantly clear that from his perspective as well, this is a health and safety issue of which we all should be concerned. Coming together will be process, not an event, and will take patience, prayers and help from all of us.

I have said this before that it has also been exciting seeing how creative people can be in ministry. This time has pushed us to try new things, new ways of serving. One example will be Tara’s alternative program for VBS- stay tuned.

I will continue to give you updates as time goes on. Thanks for your prayers and support during these days. Know that God is still at work through this time- and is impacting many.

Glad to be serving alongside each of you and I will keep you informed to any developments.

Pastor Kevin

The Programming Team would like to thank everyone for their participation in the worship service survey we conducted this winter.  There were many interesting findings and great suggestions offered.  We have already initiated some changes based on those surveys, and there will be more to come as we persevere through this pandemic and make plans for the return to live service. 

There will be no Worship Service at RBC on Sunday.  Please see the attached Facebook Live directions for Worship Service.  Worship Service will be available on Facebook Live, Website and RBC App as well as Channel 13. (Attached is this week’s Prayer Request, Bulletin and Sermon Bulletin to follow along with the service). Please note that no one will be allowed access to the Church on Sunday morning except for the people working the service. There are no exceptions to this request.

Spring Sermon Series will be: “Healing for Today’s Modern Family”; “Family Conflict”. (Genesis 29:21, Genesis 30:22 and James 4:1-12).

If anyone is in need of assistance of any kind, please contact the office by calling 603-895-2859 or email at marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com.

There has been a Tab created “Stuck at Home?” on the Website which will have documents and YouTube Videos (Great Tools to use) that you can incorporate into your home and family worship.  Please check it out!  It will keep changing and more and more added to it so keep checking it out!

IMPACT 2 GO: Registration is now open for: Impact Adventure Camp 2 Go – Because we cannot meet in person, Raymond Baptist Church Children’s Ministry is working hard to provide 5 days of Bible-based activities for your child ages 4 – 12. A box filled with lessons, supplies and surprises will be ready for pick up June 26 and 27 to use throughout the summer wherever you are. Invite friends, neighbors and family to join the fun.

MISSIONS:

Please see a recent communication from Dan Peront serving in South Africa:

“We have been able to distribute food into one of the shanty towns (Joe Slovo) a couple times, and as soon as this lockdown is over we are planning to bring the Jesus film in.  We are praying for a revival and that the whole village will get saved…. Will you and Raymond Baptist pray this with us?  There are around 2000 people in this settlement.”

 

PICTURES NEEDED: You all probably saw or viewed the Being the Church Video shown on May 10th.  We are now doing a Take 2 and gathering some more images of how the RBC family is continuing to worship and serve! We would love to see your photos. For example, still images of the family in prayer, reading the bible, helping a neighbor, shopping for those in need, gathering around the streamed service, singing praise to the Lord, sewing face masks etc etc etc, you get the idea.  As we persevere through these difficult times, we take comfort in the knowledge that God is in control!  We will combine these photos into a video presentation to share during Sunday service as well as our website and local cable. (your submission indicates your permission to use these photo’s in this manner) We have all had to think outside the box to answer our calling to be the church. We can’t gather in the sanctuary right now, but together we can still find ways to support, pray for and encourage each other and the community. We are a family, we are the church.

Please email your photo submissions to:   rbcbeingthechurch@gmail.com

Video’s will be shared in the coming weeks.

SCT DINNERS: Due to the concerns over the coronavirus and the fact that the majority of guests that attend SCT dinners are both seniors and people with compromised health; the SCT dinner for next week (Monday 16th) has been Cancelled! We will resume SCT when we have a better picture on preserving the safety of our elderly and vulnerable guests and staff. We will keep you all informed as to when they will resume.

RBC SERVICES WILL AIR ON CHANNEL 13. Channel 22 has been designated for Town and Government Notices.  If you know of anyone who is utilizing the Public Raymond Station, please pass the word.  Following is the Schedule for RBC Services:

Sunday 9:00am

Monday 2:00pm

Tuesday 6:00pm

Wednesday 10:00am & 7:00pm

Thursday 10:00pm

Friday 2:00am

Saturday 6:00am

This week I encourage all, except those directly involved in direct participation in our worship service to take advantage of the on line opportunity to view service. This is to protect those who are vulnerable, and those who would come out of a sense of responsibility who should remain home. We will continue to keep informed as time goes on, but for this week all public worship and programs in the church will be suspended this week. You may send in your weekly gifts through our church app, or simply main 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
