New RCF Sunday Service Health Protocol
Restoration Christian Fellowship’s (RCF) Sunday services provide our members an opportunity to worship, offer praise, provide gifts, and hear a word for the Lord. We have worked tirelessly to ensure that our members are able to fellowship in an environment that offers the highest level of safety and the lowest possible level of risk to our health.
Given the continuing challenges we face with a global pandemic, we have taken guidance from our RCF Health and Wellness team to effectively manage attendance at our Sunday worship service.
Starting Sunday August 8, 2021, the following new protocols will be in place:
ALL persons planning to attend Sunday service will be asked to pre-register as an attendee using the RCF REALM app. This pre-registration assists with regulating facility capacity requirements. The pre-registration window typically begins every Tuesday.
On Sunday mornings, ALL attendees will be asked to provide personal contact information, complete a short health questionnaire (five questions), and participate in a temperature check prior to entering the RCF facility.
Individuals who offer proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be directed to a separate check-in location for expedited registration. Disclosure of any vaccination information is totally voluntary and will be maintained as confidential by the church.
Individuals who indicate that they are suffering from symptoms associated with the COVID-19 virus will NOT be admitted into the RCF facility and will be provided guidance on next steps from a member of our health and wellness team.
Face masks are always required while in the RCF building. Those who do not abide by this requirement will be asked to leave the facility and join our online worship experience.
The RCF facility will continue to maintain socially distant seating arrangements for Sunday services.
If you have any questions regarding the revised Sunday service health protocols call the RCF church office or speak with a member of our RCF Health and Wellness committee.
I am pleased to announce that Brother John Polk has accepted the role as Interim Director of Worship. In this position, he will lead and nurture our praise and worship ministry. John will also become a working member of our RCF staff team to ensure we continue to integrate the praise and worship experience into all that we do.
John has been a musician with Restoration Christian Fellowship for several months. Prior to coming to us as a musician, John was the Executive Pastor at The Place of Grace in Orlando, Florida. He has served as Senior Worship Leader for Engage Orlando, Minister of Music for New Heights Ministries, Minister of Music for Orlando Faith Ministries, Minister of Music for The Sanctuary Church, Music Director for Justin Felton & the PRAYze Team, and Music Director for Carla Martin. John has participated in the Perfect Harmony & Voices of Victory Tours across Italy in 2014 and 2017. John also led his own team (JP & The Soul Voices) on tour in 2019.
I believe John will provide spirit-filled leadership to our praise and worship ministry as well as open new doors for us to give much deserved glory to God for all he has done for our church. Please join me in welcoming John to this role and offer your prayers as our Praise and Worship team continues to lift up the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
To God be the Glory
