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

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

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.
