March 24 – Church Update

Dear River Bend Family,

Because of recent requests by our national, state and local officials for people not to go to their offices unless they are “essential employees”, our office will no longer remain open.  However, we will be working from our homes.  You may reach us in all the usual ways you have in the past.  We will answer our phones, emails and voice messages.  We may not be in the office, but we will continue to stay in touch.

Because of this change, you will no longer be able to come by the office and drop off a check. I want to encourage you to use our on-line giving option, which you can find on our webpage. Also, consider using on-line banking or bill-pay through your bank.  You can always mail a check.  So far, the post office is still operating, even though Coronavirus is not mentioned in their oath.    

What a joy it was to see so many of you watching our worship service on Sunday.  After getting some advice, I believe we have worked out the technical difficulties we experienced last week.  Make sure you join us this Sunday at 10:30 am on Facebook.

In addition to our Sunday service, Lawsona is connecting with families who have children through a River Bend Kids Facebook group. Contact Lawsona at LGandy@Riverbendbc.org to get in on all the fun. (See specifics below)

Our Wednesday night youth Bible study will be on Zoom.  Todd will contact our youth and families to give them the link.  If you have any questions contact him at Tmelton@Riverbendbc.org. (See specifics below)

My first installment of Bible Trivia Time with Pastor John happened today.  You can meet me on Facebook live, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2:00 pm. Besides trivia, I will give you a Bible truth as well.  Today it was about following Jesus and becoming fishers of men.  

As you can see, we are trying hard to find ways to keep us connected to one another.  To be honest with you, I cannot think of a better group of people I want to be connected to.  I love each and every one of you.   

Remember our Caring Servant team is ready to serve.  So if you need something, give me a call at 281-797-4208, and we will get it to you.

The same Jesus who took care of you yesterday is taking care of you today and will take care of you tomorrow.  Place your faith and hope in Him.

Pastor John
