This Sunday we commemorate Memorial Day. In memory of many; In honor of all, Thank you.

On Monday, May 31st the Office will be closed for observance of Memorial Day.

divider

For all our regular attendees and members, we would like to ask that, if it is possible, to sit closer in a row closest to the front of the pulpit, if there are seats open and available, when you choose your seating. This would help us seat people who are new and checking in as well as people coming in at the start of service so that there is less of a disruption to everyone, as well as make a newcomer feel more comfortable as we look to seat people.  This would be a tremendous help to the Ushers if they can seat more towards the back of the Church after service starts.  Thank you for your help with this, it is very much appreciated!

Since young children are not able to be vaccinated yet and the CDC is still recommending that unvaccinated people need to wear masks indoors, after much prayer and discussion, we are going to keep our present protocol of wearing masks indoors. This will keep children safe through the end of the school year, prevent the need to only have some people masked, and keep people who are more at risk safer. This protocol will be re-evaluated when children are out of school towards the end of June. We feel this protocol is the fairest solution for all at present.

THIS WEEK: 05/30/2021: ~ “Show Me Your Hands” – (1 Peter 3:8-16) Do we live with hands open, or clenched towards others?

NEXT WEEK06/06/2021: ~ “Don’t Visit the Old Neighborhood” – (1 Peter 4:1-11)

Impact Adventure Camp (VBS) is in need of people who can cut and sew felt or fabric teddy bears by June 30th. We prepare for 60 campers, but many hands make light work. If you don’t sew but are willing to cut the felt/fabric that would be helpful, too.  The Felt and Fabric will be supplied, thread also if needed. If you are willing to help please contact Tara Swist through email tara123abc@comcast.net or you can call or email the Church Office at marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com or 603.895.2859 as soon as possible. Thank you!

PRAYER NIGHT: Please Join Us on the 1st Thursday of every month, starting June 3rd. 6:30pm – 7:30pm at Raymond Baptist Church: Outside – Weather Permitting or in Sanctuary.

There will be a Church cookout and game day after Church on June 13th, from 11:30am to 1:00pm. If you have an outdoor game like corn hole, washer toss, ring toss, ladder ball, etc., and would be willing to bring it with you on the 13th please see or email Ed Burgess, edndonnaburgess@comcast.net. You can bring lawn chairs if you would like to. Please RSVP to the Church office so we can anticipate how many people will be attending. Everyone is encouraged to attend. We will work to make this a safe event. Please note that while we all love our wonderful potluck items here at RBC all food and drinks will be provided but no Potluck items or sharing of utensils can happen at this time.

HELP NEEDED: As more families are attending service, it is time to bring back the Children’s Ministry Team workers.  If you have served on the Nursery or Club2:52 Team in the past 3 years and would like to participate again, please contact Tara Swist, Children’s Ministry Director by email tara123abc@comcast.net or call the church office at 603-895-2859. There is a need for adult and teen nursery workers, as well as, Club 2:52 adult and teen assistants. If you are new to this ministry please contact Tara, to begin the ministry screening process.

GRADUATES: We will be honoring those who will be graduating High School or College in 2021.

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

We are rejoicing that Raymond Baptist Church is celebrating another anniversary!! 71 years on April 18th! It has been so encouraging to see our church grow over the years. Through all the ups and downs, God has been faithful. Special thanks to our congregation, ministries, members and communities for all that they do to help bring Jesus, encouragement and help into the lives of many.

As we have all seen in the news, the state is dropping its mandatory mask mandate as of today, but still keeping it as a recommendation for best policy. As this pandemic has progressed, changes have been expected in recommendations, and the leadership has been careful in examining those changes and recommendations from the CDC and the state. As we progress through time we will continue to be alert to changes, and the upcoming recommendations on May 7th from the “Safer at Home” guidance. If you would like offer any helpful input for the Board, please feel free to drop a note to the church office.

 

The Board of Elders welcome all comments and questions regarding the workings, policies, goals, moving forward, etc. of the Church and would love to have a discussion with you.  If you would like to contact any of the Elders the following are the email addresses for all. They look forward to answering any and all questions, praying with and for you and having a discussion. Please contact them, they would love to hear from you.

THIS WEEK: 04/18/2021: ~ “Teen Challenge”

NEXT WEEK04/25/2021: ~ “It All Starts Here” – (1 Peter 1:1-9) Foundation God Has Given Us to Endure

STORIES STILL NEEDED: After Easter the main teaching theme for Sunday mornings will be “The God Who Gives Second Chances,” we will be using Peter’s writings to see how God gave him, and us second chances to be used. If you have a story about how God gave you a second chance in life and are willing to share it, let the Office or Pastor Kevin know.

Amateur Artists! Expression and creativity await you starting Saturday, April 24th from 12 noon for a couple of hours at the church Great Room (or outdoors), rain or shine. No judgment zone! Crayons and paper provided or bring your own supplies. Mask and social distancing required. Remember: An Amateur is one “who engages in a pursuit as a pastime rather than a profession “. Allow yourself the freedom to express yourself.  If anyone has any questions please send Terry Austrew an email at taustrew@gmail.com or give the Office a call.

Leading up to NDP, we would like to bath the community in prayer to pave the way for revival in our town by encouraging our church family to form neighborhood/town walking prayer groups to pray for families as you pass by each home.   We would love to hear back if anyone starts a walking prayer group in their neighborhood.

POSITIVITY STILL NEEDED: We are compiling a booklet for National Day of Prayer titled “New Appreciation for Life’s Simpler Joys and Hopes learned from the COVID-19 Pandemic”. We are hoping this booklet will provide the community some positivity and hope. There is always something positive that comes out of a negative.  If you could send to the office a brief sentence or paragraph stating something positive that came out of Covid-19 in your family, community or friends please let us know.  Thank you in advance for your comments. You can email them to marion@raymondbaptistchurch.com
