Update // In Light of COVID-19
What is Happening?
In response to new government parameters, Redemption Hill Church is suspending indoor worship services for an indefinite season and we are shifting our focus to “Worship Outside the Walls.” We will continue to gather weekly on campus for outdoor services and on-line for live-stream services.
We will have a service at 9 AM on our lawn and will also continue our live-streamed service from the worship center at 11 AM. The live streamed service will include our regular worship teams and preaching, but the only audience will be on-line. Both services will have the same preaching. The other elements will be similar, but adjusted for their setting. Please participate in the service that is most appropriate for you and your family.
On the lawn, we will continue to observe safety protocols. Please be sure to wear your mask whenever you are unable to maintain proper social distancing. Because we are singing, please keep increased social distancing of 6’ during the service. There is no attendance restriction so you do not need to sign up in advance. A small number of chairs will be set up on the patio adjacent to the lawn in case you have mobility challenges. Everyone else should bring their own chairs or blankets to sit on. Be sure to arrive a few minutes early, dress comfortably for outdoors, and bring whatever else is helpful for your family (sunscreen, hats, water bottles, etc.). If you want shade, come early and sit under the trees along Bogardus. If you bring a pop-up or beach umbrella please sit in the back (along Russell) and be careful not to block anyone’s view.
How to Stay Connected?
We plan to be continuously updating our website and social media platforms including RHC Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube pages. We encourage you to follow us on one of those mediums.

If you know of someone in our community who is fearful, struggling or has needs you think we might be able to meet, let us know.
What about ABCs & Life Groups?
Some ABC’s and Life Groups have begun meeting outdoors on campus following proper health and safety protocols. If your group would like to explore on campus outdoor options please contact Nancy Marriott.
Nobody knows how bad the COVID-19 situation will get in our community, or how long it will last. We may not be able to stop it, but we can reduce the intensity of its impact by adjusting our lives for a season. We serve our Lord by serving and loving the community around us. The staff and overseers will continue to work hard in caring for and guiding us all. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out—and be sure to visit our Facebook page for regular updates.
