COVID-19 Coronavirus Update
STAYING HEALTHY AT RIVER
As our local cities, our nation and global communities discuss how best to deal with and prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), we are responding by suspending all gatherings for at least 2 weeks at our shared worship center with South Mountain Community Church, as the entire SMCC family has also done the same for all of their multi-sites.
If it happens that you, any family members, or friends contract the virus, please let us know so we can join you in prayer, and assist in any way possible during and after recovery.
If you are struggling with thoughts of the impact of the virus, or the circumstances are causing you stress or anxiety, please feel safe to contact Danny or Keith to talk and pray through the situation. We are here to love and encourage one another, and we want everyone of us to know that we are still together, even if we have to limit our physical interactions with each other for a short time.

Thankfully, there is a lot of good information accessible to all of us, and here are some best practices we are encouraging you to follow:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your coughs/sneezes with tissue or arm.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water.
• If no soap and water are available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
As always, we are committed to providing safe and sanitized spaces to gather, worship and fellowship together. As we look forward to meeting in person once again, we are committed to:
• Cleaning and disinfecting all spaces more frequently;
• Encouraging anyone, especially River Kids volunteers, to stay home if they feel sick;
• Adapting social practices to minimize the spread of sickness with utmost respect and wisdom.
As the news and information about COVID-19 continue to change daily, we are reminded of God’s promises in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control,”and 1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”
