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.

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

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.

New Spring Sermon Series will be: “Healing for Today’s Modern Family”; “I’m in Charge and Don’t You Forget It. When Control Replaces Love”. (1 Peter 2:11 – 3:1).

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.

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 OUTDOOR CLUB: We have been unable to hold our normal spring events such as Turkey Hunting Seminars and Hunter Education Class, but we still hold out hope that our kids fishing derby could happen at an upcoming date. We await word from the Governor on his stay at home order that is set to expire on May 4th.  Stay tuned.  In lieu of being able to have an actual demonstration from our friend and dog training expert Hank Hough from Texas, we thought we would share this fascinating video of Hank with his dog Sunday.  We hope you enjoy it.

We invite you to check out our Facebook site at outdoorclubrbc.   Enjoy this Amazing dog training videotaped on Easter Sunday: https://youtu.be/Igz8s2jF9Hk?t=86

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.

MISCELLANEOUS

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.

RBC Weekly Newsletter (5/1/20)

RAYMOND BAPTIST CHURCH NOTES

Ministry update from Pastor Kevin- 5/1/2020

   As we approach May 4th many are in anticipation about how life, businesses and the church will move forward. At this time, we all await the new guidance that will come from state and national resources.

   Several weeks ago, I wrote to let you know that the staff and elders were at that time beginning to address the topic of re-opening the church. We have been continuing our discussions, and I have been involved in many national and local conference calls with ministries- all trying to determine our best practices moving forward. We are still working on determining a plan that is best. I did want to take a moment to give you an update and ask for your prayers in this.

   First let me say this up front. This is not a “church vs. state” issue as some have tried to frame this conversation. This is a health and safety issue in which we are being called to personally sacrifice our own personal preferences for the sake of others who are most vulnerable. This very much is a Biblical principle that any follower of Christ should be able to relate to, the idea of carrying one another’s burdens, submitting one’s own desires for the sake of another and self-sacrifice are all attributes a follower of Christ is called to have as a part of their lives. All of these are modeled and displayed to us by Jesus himself. No authority is taking away our ability to worship. Jesus taught that worship is a matter of relationship with God and not confined to a pre-determined place. Meeting together as a group is commanded, but the size of that group is not. This past month we have all had a taste of what worship is like in many parts of the world today- and even in the first century- small home groups of like- minded believers who influenced their communities. While no one can ever eliminate all risks in life, we will not rush any model or process that could place our vulnerable populations at unnecessary risk.

   Second. We will listen and attend closely to guidance given to us by all appropriate authorities. CDC has already released some preliminary guidance for religious organizations and is further refining their guidance. For the health of others we will comply with, to the best of our abilities all guidance referring to social distancing, hygiene, masks, group sizes etc. In light of this, at this time, no ministry should plan an event that would violate any of the guidance given to us for the foreseeable future. This is a time when “smaller is better” and instead of planning large meals, meetings etc. consider smaller intimate gatherings where more personal interaction is possible- and even better.

   Third. Re-opening the ministry of the church will be a process not an event. One thing all the leadership is in agreement with at this point is that there will not be one specific day when all will immediately return to the way things were this winter. We will re-engage intentionally, carefully and in a well thought out gradual process- progressing from smaller groups to larger groups. We are currently in the planning phase, listening to others, learning from others what will best work for us. This may be disappointing for some, frustrating for others, but please bear with us as we try and make this work in such a way that protects people among us. I have heard on several occasions people saying, “I feel fine. I am willing to take a risk.” The issue is not the risk each of us is willing to take, it is potentially placing someone else at risk because of the exposure I may or may not have had. Please pray for us as we try to put this together.

   Fourth. This process is not about returning to worship but discovering new ministry possibilities. This I found most encouraging through all this. In every conference call of which I have been a part, ministry leaders nationally are looking at this as an opportunity, not a hindrance to ministry. Person after person have said if this hadn’t happened they would keep doing the same thing they had been doing because it was comfortable, not because it was the right thing to do. We can all get caught up in patterns and be comfortable with what is “normal” and not ask, “if it is right?” The Israelites wanted to return to Egypt because that was the “normal” they knew- even though they were slaves. In the Book of Acts, God expands his kingdom by shaking up the “normal” (see Pentecost, and later the persecutions of the church) in order to see the gospel spread. God is giving us an opportunity to rethink and retool to be the most effective church we can be in this new time. An opportunity we may not have taken if things were simply to remain as they were. This can be a little uncomfortable, frustrating but can be tremendously exciting to see what things look like on the other side. God will give us, and has given us tremendous new opportunities already in the lives of people. Please be in prayer that we will all be good observers and listeners to what comes next.

   I want to ensure everyone that the staff and leadership team are walking through all this carefully. Please be in prayer for us, and if you have any questions please feel free to send them in. We are all in this, not just together but with Christ.

In the meantime- continue to watch for those in need. Pick up the phone, drop a card, text, email, pony express others and let’s make sure we are caring for the people around us as Christ would care for us.

Love you all.

Pastor Kevin

COVID-19 INFORMATION: From Kathy Mayo: My sister Debbie asked me if I could reach out to my church for her.  She has been making masks for her daughter’s office at Hitchcock, the Elliott and some other first responders.  She has made 335 to date and now wants to make extenders for those who need them.  These require ¾” buttons.  She is asking for any donations she can get in this effort.  So for all you seamstresses’ out there who may have unused buttons…my sister would be extremely grateful for them.  I would be happy to pick them up if you want to leave them on your porch, hanging on your mailbox or at the church under the carport area near the door.  You could also drop them off on her porch.  She lives in Fremont at 607 Main Street – Fremont Glass and Garage Door.

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.

Friendships formed. Lives challenged. (Jennifer Maggio).  Please join us in praying for RBC and saying Happy 70th Anniversary to Raymond Baptist Church where we continue, and will continue to Reach, Teach and Serve within our community and more….

Raymond Baptist Church

PO Box 106

Raymond, NH 03077

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.

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.

If you could commit to a 15-minute time slot between 6 am & 6pm on May 7th to pray for our country, our leaders, our military, our families, etc. please send email with the time slot you choose that works best for you & your family. The kids are home, include them too!  I will be keeping track on one document and will forward to the National Day of Prayer Committee when completed. This marks the 69th year for the Nation and the theme this year is from Habakkuk 2:14. (NIV) “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” If you have any questions, please call or email me.  There will be more information sent in the upcoming week(s) regarding the National Day of Prayer.  National Day of Prayer will be a different format this year but it has NOT been cancelled. Stay tuned J 

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!

COVID -19 REFLIEF FUND: A tab has been added to the Online Giving menu for a special offering which will help those in need during this difficult and trying time, and who are in need of assistance. 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!  You can also mail in your offering to the Church.

Starting Sunday, April 19th the Spring Sermon Series will be: “Healing for Today’s Modern Family”; Is It Really Us – What Families Look Like Today (Proverbs 11:29).

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

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 1Chronicles 7:14 But along with this we will start praying as a group at 12noon 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.

YOUTH GROUP

Youth Group has been cancelled till further notice.

In this time I would like to take the opportunity to share thoughts and teaching in a different format. I have posted a video to YouTube which is attached below.  Your students can watch it at their leisure. Also Sunday we will have material on the church website under the tab, “Stuck at Home.”  This material will be a lesson/quiet time for them to use weekly in their personal walk with God.

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.
