Dear Friends,

I’m excited to share with you the news that congregational singing will return to our in person worship service beginning this Sunday! Lifting our voices together in song as we praise Almighty God has long been at the heart of our identity as a community of faith. I have never known a church where folks have such a passion for music, and a love for singing, as we do here at BRPC. Thank you for your patience as we have waited for this day to come.

Please also know that our Session is eager for those who are fully vaccinated to have the option of not wearing a mask during indoor gatherings, including during worship services in the sanctuary. We take seriously yesterday’s guidance from our governor which “strongly recommends” that we remain masked indoors whether vaccinated or not due to the growing concern of the COVID-19 delta variant. And so we will continue to require that masks be worn for indoor gatherings, and will be ready to modify that protocol as soon as conditions allow.

Our online worship service will continue to be offered, for those who are not ready or able to return to in person worship services, or live some distance away, or simply prefer that experience.

Join us this Sunday, whether in person or online, as we make a joyful noise unto the Lord and sing hymns and praises together!
in love and faith,

Reverend Dennis W. Jones

Senior Pastor
