Our Response to the Coronavirus:
River of Life family,
Wow! Who would ever thought that we’d be shutting down nearly all public face-to-face interaction? Professional sporting events, schools, and even churches are all victims of the Coronavirus pandemic that has spread across the globe. Over the past couple of days, James 4:13-14a keeps coming mind, “Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring.” No, we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. Things may get worse, things may get better. This may go on for days, or it may be weeks, or longer. But this we do know, as Isaiah wrote, “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you’” (Isa. 41:13).
So, in light of public health concerns over the Coronavirus, and to heed the recommendations of President Trump and the officials at the Center for Disease Control, I have decided to suspend in-person worship for the time being. The good news is we have the live-streaming service up and running! So, you will be able to watch the service live (the worship team, tech guys, and I will broadcast our service live at 10am Sunday morning). Below is the information Chris has put together for us.
To view the full livestream of Sunday’s service, simply visit live.riveroflifeif.org. The site is live all the time so feel free to visit early to familiarize yourself with the site. The site has a full chat room that you can use to discuss things with others, a spot to take notes while you listen to the service, and access to the Bible all while being able to view the service.
The site is a simulcast. So if you join after 10 AM, you will still be seeing what is happening live rather than starting at the beginning. The full service will be available on the live site as well as the sermon section of our website immediately following the service.
Every effort has been and will be taken to try and ensure a seamless experience for everyone but please bear with us as we are still ironing out some of the kinks. We are working on backup solutions in case they are needed.
Grace to you,
