Per the Arkansas governor’s guidelines, places of worship are once again able to begin meeting. Beginning Sunday, May 10th, RCC will resume normal worship service times on campus at 9:30am and 11am. It’s important to note that for at least a couple weeks, RCC will not be offering nursery, children’s ministry, or Bible studies on Sunday mornings. Entire families are encouraged to worship together in the worship center or overflow spaces if necessary. As a reminder, if you are more susceptible to sickness at this time, or if you are running a fever, we ask you to worship from your home through RCC’s livestream services.
 
As we strive to adhere to the guidelines for places of worship, we ask your help. As you attend worship services at RCC, please practice social distancing and bring a mask. During our services, we strongly encourage families to sit together, and avoid physical contact with others. With all of this being said, we want our services to be a place of grace and freedom. Some people simply cannot wear a mask. Some people may choose to sit together. Some people are not quite ready to return to worshipping with the body, and some will be. This is a process for everyone. Our response needs to be positive and encouraging for all who are in different places on this journey. Our response will be to trust that there are valid reasons for their decisions. Our choice will be to worship our Almighty God in biblical community once again.
 
There is no plan to resume our Wednesday night activities at this time. We are evaluating everything on a day-to-day basis. Please check back here for details.
 
As always, our campus will be a clean, safe place for your entire family. We believe fully that if we will practice good hygiene, social distancing, and limit physical contact, we will be able to worship together without concern.

As COVID-19 spreads across our world and our country, we continue to learn more and evaluate what we are planning to do on campus. Because of the quick spread of the virus, and our desire to be good neighbors, our leadership has decided to not host any on-campus activities until further notice. This includes Easter Sunday, April 12th. We invite everyone to our livestream services at 9:30am and 11am that take place every Sunday. You can find our services on our SERMONS page, but for the best chance to interact and engage with others during our service, please go to https://www.facebook.com/rogerschristianchurch, like our page and join us.
We continue to encourage everyone to follow the advice of health care professionals to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
 
Our thoughts and prayers are with all that have been impacted by COVID-19 in any way, and that God will use this time to build his church and advance the mission of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

While we long to be able to connect again in person, our leadership has decided to suspend our on campus services for Sunday, April 6th.  We invite everyone to our livestream service at 11am that takes place every Sunday. You can find our livestream on our SERMONS page, but for the best chance to interact and engage with others during our service, please go to https://www.facebook.com/rogerschristianchurch, like our page and join us. 

We continue to encourage everyone to follow the advice of health care professionals to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We see what we are enduring now as a chance to become an even more tight-knit community, and hope to see you online in the near future.

In our desire to see an end to this virus, our leadership has decided to suspend our on campus Sunday worship services for the next two weekends. We invite everyone to our livestream service at 11am that takes place every Sunday. TO BE CLEAR: even though in-person worship services are canceled, we will still be offering our livestream service at 11am each Sunday. You can find our livestream on our SERMONS page, but here is a direct link: https://www.rogerscc.org/sermons-teaching/.
 
We recognize that we are in uncertain times. The move to digital church exclusively is not something we have done without discussion, thought, and most of all, prayer. Though we are trying to adhere to the CDC’s recommendation of groups of 10 or less only, that does not mean that we are inactive at this time. We are developing a game plan that will allow people to stay connected. These plans involve online services, Bible Studies, and in-person pastoral care when needed. This is a time for Christ’s church to be further unified and purposeful in our time. If you are a Christ-follower, we encourage you to pray every moment you can. Pray for our world, our country, our state, and our local community.
 
We continue to encourage everyone to follow the advice of health care professionals to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
 
God Bless!  We’re excited to continue being the church with you despite our physical separation!

Obviously we are very aware of the news surrounding COVID-19. As we learn more, it more clearly brings into focus the things that we need to evaluate, and decisions that need to be made. At this time, our leadership is strongly urging caution for our body. In considering the closure of local public schools, our leadership has decided to not meet this Wednesday night for our normal Wednesday evening activities.  Regardless of what other organizations and churches are doing, our leadership has had to consider what is right for us, and at this time, we feel it best to not meet.

 

The following week is Spring Break for our public schools, so we are not scheduled to meet then either.  During this time, we encourage all of RCC to pray for our world, our nation, our state, and our local church leadership.  Please remember to protect yourself and protect others! 

 

As we continue to evaluate news reports and the health of our own people, we will make further decisions regarding our weekend services as well as other programs and activities that RCC is a part of.  Please check back here for regular updates.  God bless you!

Obviously we are very aware of the news surrounding COVID-19. As we learn more, it more clearly brings into focus the things that we need to evaluate, and decisions that need to be made. At this time, our leadership is strongly urging caution for our body. Protect yourself and protect others. This means:
-If you are sick, please do not come to our gatherings. This has always been the way we’ve encouraged our people to conduct themselves. It’s essential at this time that you stay home, rest, and get better.
-If you are especially susceptible to illness at this time, please do not put yourself at unnecessary risk and please stay home.
-If you are unable to attend, please join us online at our livestream at 11am each Sunday. https://www.rogerscc.org/sermons-teaching/
 
As we move forward with our weekend services, we have emphasized to our cleaning personnel the need to be extremely diligent and thorough. This is not a new standard for us, but a continuing one. Additionally, for those that have attended RCC before, you will notice a few differences in our services beginning this Sunday. These differences are temporary measures that we are taking to keep our people healthy and to keep the virus from spreading. Our decisions are not made out of fear in any way; rather, they are motivated by how we can best love our neighbors by preventing the spread of the virus unnecessarily. If you have any questions, please reach out to our church office at 479-636-9067. Thank you, and God bless you.
