Vacation Bible School Registration Link
Dear Reid Families,

Summer is quickly approaching and so is VBS! Vacation Bible School is a highlight for so many children. With some creative thinking, we have modified our plans for VBS to include a virtual option that will be meaningful and fun for all ages. 

Each day at 9:30 am, we will go "Live" on Facebook to share God's love in new and exciting ways. The children will experience fun skits, Bible stories, Bible trivia, awesome music, and a closing prayer. After the virtual presentation, we will encourage all participants to participate in activities posted on our Reid's Roots Facebook page. The kids will be able to pick and choose from several fun options.

Attached to this message is a link to register for this unique and special VBS opportunity. I hope your child will join us for a fun, faith-building week!.

Youth Summer Activities will begin for rising grades 6 through 12 beginning in June. Look out for information from Hannah in the coming weeks.

Summer Sunday School for both Children and Youth begins May 24th. It will be on zoom. For the summer we are looking at Faith through the lens of Pixar shorts. We’ve got some great teachers on board. Email or text Hannah for the zoom link.

Our lives as a church family changed very rapidly due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We continue to receive and monitor new information from medical and government professionals.

At this time the Session has closed our church campus through June 1, 2020.

The Session met on May 14 to discuss how our ministry can best continue going forward. See the statement below for more detail.

Remember to let Dr. Rich, Reverend Nadine, or Reverend Hunt know if you have any prayer concerns.

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

The Session met for a called meeting this evening, May 14, so I wanted to provide you a brief update on decisions made tonight. In the midst of ever-changing news about COVID-19 cases and testing; the governor’s executive orders and local guidelines; businesses and churches both reopening and remaining closed; scientific data and opinions, and our God who is faithful always, I am very grateful for how your Session continues to prayerfully consider how we might best continue to share the good news of the gospel with our congregation and community. There is much which is yet to be decided and many details yet to be worked out. However, the Session did vote this evening:

  1. To set Monday, June 1, 2020, as an aspirational date for reopening the church campus with both theological commitments and strict safety guidelines. If this date is confirmed, it will allow the church staff to return to work in their offices, for you as congregation members to make appointments to see members of the staff (but not just drop in), and for us to continue working toward the church campus being available for small (less than 10 people) groups, meetings, and studies.

  1. To set June 14, 2020, as an aspirational date to resume in-person worship services. This date also remains subject to change as we continue to monitor the most recent guidance from the CDC, health and governmental officials, and our denomination. We do not want to gather for an in-person worship service until we can do so as safely as possible. The tentative plan for June 14th is to share a recorded video service in the morning via Facebook and YouTube and hold an outdoor evening service (with different scripture, sermon, prayers, and music) on the lawn and parking lot of the Alan Fuqua Center.

The Session’s next Stated Meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 26th. At that time, if the Session believes it is faithful and safe to proceed with these dates, the Session will consider and approve more definite plans for this phase 1 of opening the church campus and returning to in-person worship services. I will share more with you as soon as it has been approved by the Session.

Thank you for your faith, your care for one another and the most vulnerable in our church and community, your financial support, and most of all your prayers. You are living examples of what we will hear in our scripture text this Sunday: “God is love, and those who abide in love abide in God, and God abides in them.” 1 John 4:16

God bless,
Matt

Notes from Pastor Nadine

The Reid Book Group for June:
The Reid Book Group will meet via ZOOM on Monday, June 8 (6:00 pm) to discuss Being There by Jerzy Kosinski. Everyone is welcome to join - just email Pastor Nadine to get the meeting link!  


Wednesday Evenings “Prayers in Pajamas” via FaceBook Live 8:30 pm. Join Pastor Nadine for evening prayer. What better way to conclude the day than a few minutes of quiet prayer and reflection together? 

Prayer Walks at the Locks:
A new prayer walk video is posted on YouTube by Wednesday evening each week for those who would like to engage in a meditative/prayer walk in their neighborhood or on their own at the locks. 
Each week can be viewed as a stand-alone session, but if you are new to prayer walks, please start with Session 1. 


Adult Sunday School Class:
Join Pastor Nadine as she brings reflections from Bob Goff’s book “Everybody Always.”  This study will run through mid-June. Lessons will be recorded and posted to YouTube and Facebook to watch before worship or later in the week.  The book isn't required to participate, but if you enjoyed "Love Does" you may also find this a rewarding read.
