Church Update - COVID-19 Response


Dear Riverside,

Please watch the embedded video below and consult the resources below.  COVID-19 is a moving target, and some of our recommendations for fellowship have changed (already since Tuesday).  We will maintain updates on our website and through social media accounts (Twitter: @RCC_Columbia, Facebook: @RiversideCommunityChurch).

We encourage you to observe carefully CDC’s recommendations and the suggested protocols in our previous email.  We also encourage you to follow the Holy Spirit.  If you sense God’s Spirit is leading you to stay home these next two weeks, and avoid all in-person social interactions, while staying connected to others through technology, then please do so.

Grace and Peace,

The elders
