ROCK HILL COVID-19 LATEST NEWS
Dear Rock Hill Community Church,
With the recent changes to our state’s public health order, restrictions have eased enough to begin some movement forward toward public gathering. We are excited about what that means for our Rock Hill family. While we understand that gathering now has certain risks associated with it, we think they are outweighed by our concern for people’s mental, spiritual, and emotional health during this time of quarantine.
In light of this, we are preparing to reopen May 31st carefully and cautiously. We will responsibly operate within the parameters of the prevailing state public health order as well as COVID-19 safe practices.
The challenges associated with leading in any capacity during this season has been immense with so much of what we are allowed to do changing week-to-week. Our church leadership teams want to thank you very much for your prayers and support as we seek the Lord daily for clear vision and direction on how to advance God’s kingdom. We have been amazed at how gracious our interactions with you all have been, especially when the opinions of what to do and when to do it are so varied.
So, here is the current plan as we move forward:
The church is taking necessary steps to prepare for opening. For example:
Here are some important reminders:
While our gatherings will feel different for a while, we will be together, and through that will have a great opportunity to encourage one another. We will gather, we will sing, we will pray, and we will open up God’s Word together, and God will meet us! That is worth doing, even if it isn’t as elaborate.
Please continue to pray for our government leaders during this crisis as they carry unique burdens and require great wisdom for decision making. Please also pray for church leadership across our nation as they lead their congregations. Pray that God continues to redeem this crisis within Rock Hill and that we can be His city on a hill for one another and our community. We love you and we look forward to gathering in person as a family.
Your Rock Hill Leadership Team!
