September 8, 2020
I hope you had a great summer filled with the faithfulness of God, and are ready to press into His presence in this new season. I want to take a moment to let you know how we will be creating places to encounter His presence this Fall.
Our Sunday services will be at 10:30 am in-person and online. To ensure we are honoring God and each other, we will follow all the laws and best practices for indoor gatherings to keep everyone safe. There will be limited capacity, social distancing, and facemasks are required. For the next few weeks, we are asking you to let us know if you are joining us in-person so we can make sure we have the seating set up appropriately. You can do that online, via email, or phone.
Radiant Kids will not be available in-person for the month of September. Our team is continually planning and evaluating when we will start Radiant Kids services in-person again, and we will be sure to let you know when that happens. While we are waiting for Radiant Kids to begin again, I highly encourage you to bring your children into service with you. I am a father of young children, so I understand some of the challenges this creates, but I also love being able to model worship for my kids and help them grow in their worship expressions. I also encourage you to join our Radiant Kids Facebook group to access all the Kids service videos. Watch the videos with your kids, talk to them about what they are learning, and continue to pastor their hearts throughout the week. https://www.facebook.com/groups/891015638008208
Beginning Sunday, September 20th, our prayer meeting will be at 9:30 am in-person and online. Our first step in regathering was to start meeting on Tuesday nights for prayer meetings to minister to the Lord and to engage in the ministry of intercession. Our last Tuesday night prayer meeting will be September 8th. We are so grateful for everyone who joined us online and in-person for the prayer meetings and look forward to continuing them on Sunday mornings.
Radiant at Home
I know many of you aren't ready to rejoin larger gatherings yet, and I want to encourage you to be part of Radiant at Home. Jesus said, "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Continue to gather in small groups on Sunday mornings in homes in the name of Jesus to worship, pray, study Scripture, and share a meal together with the expectation you will encounter the presence of Jesus as you do this. All of our services will continue to stream live on our website, Facebook Live, and YouTube. We also stand at the ready to love and pastor you as you gather at home. Please reach out and let us know how we can be praying for you and supporting you.
I am full of faith and expectation for all God has for us this Fall, and I am honored to walk into that with you. I love the Radiant family!
