Hello Ridgeview family.
We have all had to make a lot of adjustments in recent days, and want to let you know about how Ridgeview plans to go forward with the challenges of the corona virus.
The Lord instructs us in several places in scripture to respect our governing authorities. Out of respect for the Lord, our government, and the safety and health of you and our neighbors, we have made the decision to not have meetings exceeding 10 people through the end of March.
Everyone who has been attending on Sunday mornings should be receiving a personal phone call from someone in the church over the next 24 hours. If you do not receive a call, please let us know.
To help us stay connected with each other over the next couple weeks, we are going to plan for the following:
We will stream a modified worship service on Sunday morning at 9am. This will include the elements of a normal service, but we will change some things to make it more suitable for online presentation.
Small groups, boards, and committees will make decisions about meetings among themselves. If you are part of a group that has a meeting coming up, please talk to your leader to see what the plan is.
Your pastors will take turns sharing a daily podcast with a word of encouragement of how to walk in faith during this time. You will be able to find that most easily on our website: RidgeviewDanville.com. It will also be shared on our Facebook page. We encourage you to check in each day!
If you have a prayer request you would like us to lift together, there are several ways you can get that to us.
· Our prayer chain, which sends requests through phone, text and email, can be initiated by contacting Chris Wells (email@example.com) or Shery Petersen (217-799-4955)
· Contact the church through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (217-442-2210)
· Send us a message on Facebook (Ridgeview Danville)
If you have a need, or know someone who does, please let us know and we will do what we can to help meet that need. If you would like to volunteer to assist bringing help to those in our community, please let us know and we will help you find a way to serve.
If you know someone who is alone during this time, especially those who do not have the ability to stay connected online, don’t hesitate to reach out to them with a phone call.
It is our desire to do our best to insure everyone’s health and safety during this difficult time, and we want to be used by the Lord to shine His light of hope and goodness to our neighbors and community. Please join us in praying for everyone as we are all in this together.
God’s peace be with you all.
