Dear RiverLakes Family,
Are you ready to start worshipping together again on our church campus? We are excited to let you know that we will be returning to worship on our campus beginning on Sunday, June 7, 2020.
Based on the recently issued guidelines from the Governor’s Office, churches are encouraged to worship together on their campuses, as long as they follow recommended safety precautions and certain restrictions. We are working diligently to welcome you all back and ensure our return is done safely and effectively. Here are a few key items to be aware of as we return.
ADULT WORSHIP SERVICES ONLY WILL BE OFFERED
NEW WORSHIP SERVICE TIMES
WORSHIP VENUES ARE LIMITED TO 100 PEOPLE AT A TIME
SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES
We are so excited about returning to worship on our campus together as one body in the unity of the Spirit. Please prepare your hearts and minds to come and worship our Lord in the splendor of His holiness. If your personal health situation is compromised, we would ask you to not attend services at this time. Also, if you are uncomfortable with returning presently, please do not feel obligated or pressured to attend the service on June 7. We would encourage you to still join us in worship by watching the 9:45am or 11:15am livestream.
“Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and beauty are in His Sanctuary. Ascribe to the Lord, O families of the people, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength! Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; bring an offering and come into His courts with thanksgiving! Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness!"
For His Glory,
The Elders of RiverLakes
ORDER A FACE MASK
With the recent recommendation to wear face masks in public, a team of faithful RCC volunteers have assembled to provide homemade masks free of charge to our church family. Click the link below to place an order. Please limit orders to one mask per person. When your order has been filled, you will be contacted for pick-up instructions.
VOLUNTEER TO SEW FACE MASKS
Whether you're a beginner or an expert, if you know how to sew, we have a place for you on our team! We could even use help cutting fabric. Simply fill out our Volunteer Form and let us know that you'l like to help sew masks.
We want to extend our gratitude to the Bakersfield Police Department for all they do to serve our city, especially during these trying times. To express our thanks, we'll be collecting notes of encouragement and hand delivering them to the BPD. There are a couple ways you can offer up your words of thanks:
1. Pick up physical cards from the North parking lot Tuesday (5/26), Wednesday (5/27), or Thursday (5/28) between 10:00am and Noon. We'll be outside the Community Center with free coffee and donuts! Fill them out and return them to the drop-off box in front of the Community Center by Friday at Noon.
2. Download a digital version of the card, print it out, write your personal message, and return it to the church by Friday at Noon.
3. Download a digital version of the card, fill it out digitally, and email it to email@example.com.
How many of you have wanted to read through the Bible, but have never done it? Well, here's your chance. We are encouraged to meditate on the Scriptures "day and night" (Psalm 1:2), to take in the "whole counsel of God" (Acts 20:27) and get alone daily with our Heavenly Father (Mark 1:35). As we do, our vision begins to align with God's. Here's a divine vision for 2020...
