Outdoor Corporate Worship Service

This Sunday, our corporate worship service will be held outside at:
Skyland Baptist  (2115 Hendersonville Road, Arden)


  • Parking: For the first few weeks, we should park at French Fryz or at Century 21 (both located next to the church and closed on Sundays). There are 15 parking spaces adjacent to the family life center. Please leave those for RCC members who may arrive late or may have difficulty walking a short distance. Once we figure out where Skyland members usually park, we can open up additional spaces in the church parking lot. Skyland’s service begins at 11am, so let’s make sure we leave the best parking spots for them. 
  • Facility: We have access to the large meeting room/gym and bathrooms. There is a “fancy” classroom (AKA the Brevard Room) that we will not use. However,  parents with fussy children are free to use that space as a “cry room.”  Unsupervised children should not be in the Brevard Room at any time. 
  • Precautions: As you know, the Elders ask everyone to wear a face covering while inside the building and during the service. This is a simple way to demonstrate love towards the members of RCC who have underlying health conditions and/or are concerned with possible viral transmission. We know that this may be uncomfortable/awkward, but it is a practical way to “consider the interests of others” and to display the humility of Christ. Chairs will be appropriately spaced and hand sanitizer and disposable masks will be readily available at the door. Skyland has a safety/security team that “patrols” the church campus during service times. 
  • Post-Service: There is a large, grassy area behind the family life center that is a great spot for fellowship. Please be aware that Skyland’s service will still be taking place when we finish. We need to minimize noise around the sanctuary so we do not disturb them. You are welcome to fellowship without masks when outdoors.  
  • Other:  The offering basket will be placed at the door. We will continue to print worship orders and email the lyrics until we are able to resume the use of Powerpoint during the service. 
The service will be livestreamed for those who are unable to meet in-person.
