"Hey RBC, As I stated earlier today, I want to give you the latest updates regarding our Sunday gatherings. So here is how we will proceed until further notice... We are suspending small groups, that is, Connection groups & Sunday School meetings beginning this coming Sunday. At present, we will continue both worship services, however in the first service we will suspend our choir and use a modified worship team on the platform. I can also tell you that the completion of the installation  of the ion generators and merv filters I spoke to you about last week will be fully functional in our worship center, foyer and music suite by the end of today.  We believe this is a proactive response to further insure that you can feel comfortable in our worship environment. Stay tuned, and God bless!

"Hey Ridgecrest Family... By now most of you have heard of my positive test for COVID-19 yesterday. So many of you have sent messages of your prayers for Alison and me. I cannot tell you how much that means to us. So, let me give you a quick update.

After your prayers and beginning Hydroxychloroquine with a steroid yesterday, I feel so good that is is hard to describe! In just a day it has been a remarkable change. In fact I feel like I did in the days before I was diagnosed. PTL! I will of course work from home for the duration of the CDC recommended quarantine just to make sure there is no exposure to others. I feel great! But I have also heard of several others that have tested positive in the past week, along with a number of our members who have gotten tested and proven negative. Never the less, I want you to know that I and the staff are now preparing a revised small group and gatherings protocol for our church for the coming weeks.

I will announce that very soon as we formalize the next steps. Please stay connected to us through these posts. I am writing this for full disclosure and to prevent misinformation from circulating. I and our staff will keep you up to date. Yes, worship is on for this Sunday. James will be preaching and obviously we will continue to require appropriate social distancing. And as always if you feel ill, stay home, watch online, pray and give faithfully.

Again I will post an update as soon as is appropriate. Blessings, I’ll complete my quarantine in time to be back in the pulpit on Sunday September 20th. In the meantime I will work, pray and post from home.

Alison and I love you and I love being your Pastor!

-Pastor Ray"
