Covid-19 Guidelines

We welcome you to stop by any Sunday or any day during our office open hours - They'll always be a seat for you! During this time of limited capacity during our worship services, we also offer seating in our ministry center where the service is viewed via our livestream.

All of our facilities are sanitized between use and disposable masks and hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the building.

In accordance with the State-wide Mandatory Mask Wearing Policy, face masks are now mandatory here in the church except for the worship team when they are up on stage and our speakers are at the podium.

We are not adopting this policy exclusively to comply with the State of NH guidelines, although that is important. The Elders feel that it is critical to continue to meet in person and worship together as much as possible. Our worship together has many important facets including prayer, teaching from God’s Word, observing communion and other ordinances of the church, and singing. These areas of worship, and in fact many things we do in the course of our daily life, have different levels of risk associated with the spread of COVID-19.

Right now, the state of NH is seeing a significant increase in the number of daily new COVID-19 cases which have risen from 99 new cases on October 2nd to 447 new cases on November 19th as well as an increasing positivity rate in COVID testing which has gone from 1.10% on October 2nd to 3.40% on November 14th. We are following State of NH policy of mandatory mask wearing to mitigate some of the risks we are taking during our worship time together. While honoring God is our ultimate priority, we must also provide reasonable levels of health and safety protections for our church body.

The State has not set a time limit on the mask wearing policy but we expect that the policy will remain in effect until the point in time where the number of new daily cases and the positivity rate return to the lower levels we were seeing in early October. We thank you for your cooperation in following the new policy. If you have any questions about our decision, please talk to Pastor or one of the Elders.Thank you.

RESOURCES FOR MINISTRY - During the COVID-19 season

Our leaders are currently researching ways to minister to church families and the community in practical and spiritual ways. If you have need of assistance, spiritual or merely someone to talk through this experience, we are available. You can email us at office@rumneybaptist.org or call the church at 603-786-9918. The staff is working throughout the week and checking messages daily.

We also encourage you to consider accessing our Right Now Media resource for devotional materials, children’s resources, and other media. For families with children this is a great way to focus on God’s Word together.

We will continue to offer more information and resources as they are available.
