Mar 19, 2021 Update
The Church Council w/ guidance from the Community Health and Contingency Planning Committee (CHCPC) have decided to continue meeting virtually as a Church through the end of the year, 2021. As the pandemic situation eases and is recommended by CHCPC, the Church Council is preparing for a staged reopening of the Church for in-person services based on the RCCC COVID-19 Guidelines provided by CHCPC. Please answer our online survey to help us prioritize and organize the implementation work for the reopening.
Attending church services in person is a personal and family decision. Please follow this Self Checklist to help you assess whether to attend church services in person once available, as well as for you to comply with the RCCC COVID Guidelines while attending the services in person. Individuals attending service in person must take full responsibilities of minimizing their own risk for COVID transmission exposures.
Please stay tuned for the announcement of the reopening date.
教會議會根據社區衛生和應急計劃委員會(CHCPC)提議，決定將持續直播主日崇拜與線上聚會直到2021年年底，並將視疫情緩和情況，根據CHCPC提供的實體聚會 COVID 防疫準則，分階段重新開教實體聚會。 請至此處回答一份問卷調查，以幫助我們確定優先順序及必要準備工作。

We will continue to meet online as a Church through the month of October including the 1st Sunday of November. This is to ensure the safety of our fellow brothers and sisters during the time of COVID-19. The newly formed Community Health and Contingency Planning Committee (CHCPC) will help create guidelines, prepare the Church and assist CC in determining when the Church is ready for re-opening. Until then, we will “see” you on YouTube for Live Streaming Sundays and Zoom for virtual meetings.

July 25, 2020 update
In the Church Council meeting today (7/25) we have assessed the risk level and situation regarding the COVID. As much as we would like to re-open the Church we feel it’s prudent to stay with online services (Youtube and Zoom) for at least the month of August AND September. We will continue to evaluate at each CC meeting.
June 20, 2020 update
Given the current COVID-19 risks levels, we plan to continue Live Streaming and have Zoom meetings until the overall situation has stabilized. In our next Church Council meeting on July 25th we will evaluate and confirm the re-opening of our Church and discuss the details of how the re-opening will happen.
May 22, 2020 update
The Church leaders met together to discuss the plans for “re-opening” RCCC in the midst of the latest news developments from NCDHHS and other sources. Although Churches are exempt from the restrictions mentioned in NC Governor’s executive order 141, the leaders are continuing the policy to do Live Streaming for our Sun services and meeting online via Zoom for our small/prayer groups. We probably will continue this policy until the end of June. We will continually evaluate the situation and update the Church website if any changes are made.
March 13, 2020 update
Dear RCCC brothers and sisters,
Today our Church leadership team (CC + Pastors and Ministers) made the decision to suspend our Fri evening (March 13th , 20 th and 27th ) and Sunday morning “in person” gatherings for the next three Sundays (March 15th , 22nd and 29th) to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
We don’t take this decision lightly as we value meeting together but we also want to be wise and listen to the advice of CDC and NC Gov’s DHHS which as of yesterday stepped up its response to the virus (https://governor.nc.gov/news/north-carolina-recommends-new-steps-protect-against-covid-19) to cancel or postpone meetings with over 100 people.
Here is what to expect from RCCC from now till the end of March
- No more on-site services, including 3 language Sunday Services, Sunday Schools, Youth programs, AWANA, children programs, and fellowship.
- Live Streaming will be used for Sunday Services and available on YouTube (both live and recorded for watching later).
- Adult Sunday Schools and fellowships are all using online Zoom meeting.
- There will be no Wed night prayer meetings, Youth, AWANA and children programs during this time
- Cantata practices are cancelled until further notice
As to how to watch the live streaming on Sundays and participate in Sunday School / fellowships using Zoom, we will post the details and updates on the church website http://www.raleighccc.org/. We will continue to monitor the situation and reassess our April meetings.
With these times of adversity, we want to acknowledge that the Lord is sovereign and is more than able to see us through. May we continue to be His hands and feet as the body of Christ.
RCCC leadership team
