Effective immediately all public gatherings at River City Church have been postponed indefinitely.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR SUNDAY WORSHIP?
It means that we will NOT gather downtown for corporate worship for the foreseeable future.
Right now, for the the next 3 weeks (March 22, March 29, April 5) will will not meet together on Sunday morning. At that time we will re-evaluate and make decisions for next steps.
This is not ideal as we hold the gathered local church in high regard. However, we believe this is the best course of action as we Biblically apply Romans 13and the instruction to respect those in authority over us as that authority is given by God and their commands are not causing us to sin… AND as we Biblically apply the command to love our neighbor (Matthew 22).
So, in order to uphold the value of gathered worship during this time we will be hosting a livestream on Facebook Live on Sunday mornings at 10am.
This livestream will last about 40 mins and consist of:
- Corporate Prayer &
- A message from God’s Word
Depending on how this works we might even be able to incorporate in some greater interaction. We haven’t utilized a live feed format before and, although we don’t plan on this being a permanent addition to our corporate worship, we feel this is a relatively simple and practical way to stay connected as a church family during this time of being spatially distanced from one another.
Following our livestream, we will provide resources for discussion and application from the text we’re studying as well as links to Spotify and YouTube playlists for you to use in your family or personal worship on Sunday or during the week.
We know that not everyone uses Facebook but you don’t need to have a Facebook account in order to watch and participate. Below we will post the “how to” for watching the Facebook Live stream that we will launch this Sunday at 10am.
If you are on Facebook please go to https://www.facebook.com/rivercityfargo/and “LIKE” our page. This will allow you to get notifications when we go live on our page.
This is helpful not just for Sunday morning but also for further live feeds we might provide.
We will post sermon audio along with notes, application questions, and links on our website on our Sermons page.
