… I long to see you, so that I may be filled with joy.
2 Timothy 1:4
Dear Riverside Family,
We certainly can empathize with Paul’s words to Timothy, in this season! We long to see all of you and will be filled with joy when that time comes. It is our pleasure to announce that we are moving in that direction and will be able to begin regathering beginning on July 5th at 9:30 AM! Obviously, this is not a return to “normal”, but it is a step towards normality.
As you can imagine there are a number of realities that we must deal with as we begin to regather. These include social distancing requirements, the size of our worship space, and the care of those in our church family and our community who are at risk. We believe we have come up with a plan that addresses all of these issues.
Beginning with worship on July 5th, we will be live-streaming worship from the sanctuary at https://riverside.online.church. If you are not able or ready to worship with us in person, we understand and we invite you to continue to join us in worship online. If you are in an at risk category, or live or work with those who are at risk, we encourage you to join us virtually. We will have space for 60 people to join us in the sanctuary for worship each week. To give everyone an opportunity to take advantage of in person worship, we ask that you sign up for only one week at a time and that you consider not signing up every week for in person services. Please find all the information you need for worship here. The deadline to sign up is each Friday at noon. We look forward to seeing many of you and appreciate your support as we continue to navigate this new territory!
