Hey - I couldn't make the EveryoneEatz event Monday. Did anyone post some photos? I've seen a few, but none on the RLBC page.
I have very much enjoyed the Zoom bible study on Wednesday evening with Paator Mike. It’s nice to get some face time with some of the congregation. On that note, if you’re a member of RLBC, please feel free to add me as a friend.

Hey, Royal family! We are sorry to miss you tonight, but I may have a cold or something. I would hate to pass it around to all of you! We will do our best to make it to the next agreed upon semi-annual visit - Fall Festival. (and by then, there will be a new member of the family!) ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you Cookie Reiser Stokes, Rebecca Remprr, Ruth May, Donna Ledgerwood, David, Paulette and all members.
RLBC hosted the May 9th meeting of the Faith in Texas Dallas cluster meeting. Read all about it here ->
Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate them greatly.💖
Pastor Mike Gregg, THANK YOU for this morning's Gospel message. In a time where many in our world feel separated from the human family your message reminded us that in His humanity Jesus was (and always will be) at the center of all that is good and loving in our world. Through His humanity we are healed! So blessed to be a part of this family of faith at RLBC!
Today was my first time to step into a baptist church since September, 1997 - the day my mother's life was celebrated at her funeral in First Baptist Church, Post. In June, 1983 I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in this church. I later accepted God's call for my life into ministry. Throughout all of those painful and fearful years I made many wrong choices that caused so much pain for so many around me. I am so grateful that over those years the God I TRULY knew never deserted me - even though so many others with the southern baptist institution wasted no time whatsoever in judging me, disowning me, even going as far as to tell me I would die of AIDS because I am gay. For those of you wasted no time jumping to the front of that line - today you became nothing more than a bad memory. Today healing truly started in my life and God reminded me in a very powerful way it is time to cast my net to deeper waters and move back into my place of grace. Mike Rainbolt-Bailey and I visited Royal Lane Baptist Church and for the first time in decades warm tears of gratitude and joy ran down my face as I sat and listened to words of love and grace, words that challenged me to move beyond fear and remember that I am redeemed - for God's love has no end. "You are my child, and I'll love you always. Just hold my hand, and I'll lead you home. When you feel lost, always remember: I am right here, just call out my name." God bless you, Pastor Mike Gregg ! God bless you Steve and your husband Leonard, Mrs. Meacham, Larry and your husband Stephen, and Charlotte Sewell! See you next Sunday! :-)
Hello friends! I wish I had planned my Texas trip to include you. I was helping my mom get set up with home care. Spent the week between Dallas, Whitewright, and Gainesville. Your AWAB board secretary will plan better next time. ❤️

Diverse People United in Christ

Royal Lane Baptist Church is an inclusive, multi-generational congregation joined in Christian community. We are a vibrant mosaic of varied racial identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and denominational backgrounds. We affirm the sacredness, dignity, and equality of every man, woman, and child and honor each individual’s freedom to worship God and to respond to his or her unique call to ministry and service. We celebrate worship that challenges the mind, stirs the heart, and lifts the spirit within the context of music, art, and liturgy to express what we can never fully say. We covenant with one another to love authentically as Christ loved. We put this love into action by ministering in the world, ever alert to the voice of human need wherever it may be heard. Royal Lane is an ecumenical Baptist congregation affiliated with The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. “We are travelers on a journey, fellow pilgrims on the road. We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load.” - Richard Gillard

[05/01/20]   **Pastoral Memo about Reopening Royal Lane Baptist Church**

May 1, 2020

Dear RLBC Congregation,

It would be an understatement to say that I miss you. I miss our cherished, in-person gatherings for worship, fellowship, and study. But we are Baptists, Baptists who value the freedom and responsible practice of religion, as well as the autonomy of the local congregation. And it is these values that guide us as we ponder the timing of resuming our in-person activities together. Beginning Friday, Phase One of Texas’s plan to reopen gathering places will commence. Phase One reopens restaurants, movie theaters, malls, and churches at 25% capacity. With this in mind, I want to share an update on the re-opening of Royal Lane Baptist Church.

The Royal Lane staff has been meeting weekly to assess the safety of our members and the continued virtual connection opportunities we have with one another. I continue to meet weekly with the Deacon Chair, Paulette Harrison, to discuss and consider our current situation and the possibilities of reopening. In all my conversations with staff and leaders, we believe it is faithfully prudent to rely upon the expert opinions of our scientific and medical community, such as the CDC and the Texas Department of Health Services, and not reopen the church, even at a reduced capacity, at this time.

There are almost 28,000 cases of Covid-19 in Texas and 776 people have died so far in our state. According to a widely used model circulated by The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), an independent population health research center at UW Medicine, part of the University of Washington, Texas is now experiencing its peak of cases and should not relax containment strategies until June.

At this point, with no reputable public health professions endorsing reopening churches in Texas, as well as Judge Clay Jenkins clearly stating that lifting the sheltering in place rule is premature, we have no clear signal that it is safe to resume in-person worship. If we reopen now, we believe we run the risk of spreading the virus within the congregation and out into the community. It will always be the purpose of Royal Lane Baptist Church to protect all who are vulnerable, including those at risk of catching Covid-19.

So, where do we go from here? How will we know when it is time to meet again for worship? Honestly, I don’t know. What I do know is that the time has not yet arrived. However, like you, I want us to be prepared, flexible, and in constant communication with you as we move forward. To accomplish this, Paulette and I, in consultation with the staff and the deacon officers, and with a unanimous vote of the Diaconate, have created a Reopening Task Force to gather information, consult professionals, and answer the many questions we might have as we reopen the church. We are fortunate to have the medical and congregational skills of Melissa Walker-Luckett and Jamie Luckett as co-chairs of this newly developed task force. Melissa and Jamie will communicate with us in the coming days about the makeup of the task force, the informed decisions being made, and how those decisions affect you and the reopening of Royal Lane.

In the meantime, I hope we can stay connected and bring God’s house into your house. Many of you have already joined me for Wednesday Bible study, Midday prayer on Fridays, various ministry and Sunday School meetings, and our virtual worship service on Sunday mornings. Our Missions Committee also remains committed and supportive of local service organizations which provide “frontline” help to those most in need during this crisis.

The day will come when we will be together again, face to face. Until then, I want everyone to be safe and protected. I know that the Holy Spirit and the bonds of community will connect us from afar and that the love of God will continue to hold us together in the days ahead. I am praying for each of you daily.

In this together,

Pastor Mike Gregg

As the #COVID19 crisis continues to ravage the nation, it has become even more treacherous in minority communities, infecting and killing Black and Brown people at a disproportionately high rate across the country. This webinar will address health concerns specifically related to the Black and Brown populations. We will cover helpful information for those who may be confused about how to protect themselves and others from mass spread; barriers to adequate testing and treatment, and offer opportunities for everyone to work together to advocate for quality healthcare and resources during and after this pandemic.

Faith in Texas

As we confront the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it can feel as if little is in our control. Our elected officials are making decisions that will impact individuals, families, and communities for years to come, such as whether or not to stop evictions or to release people from jails who are being held only because they can't afford bail.

We have an opportunity to ensure that we are heard as decisions are made. Join us on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020, or Thursday, April 9th, 2020 for a virtual training to learn our Rapid Action Network (RAN), an intricate-yet-simple text tree system that is activated at strategic moments to influence decision-makers about public policies. Attendees will receive a full briefing on our COVID-19 Policy Platform, learn how to make effective calls and emails to decision-makers, and practice using RAN.

While participating in RAN, volunteers can expect to make strategic calls and emails to decision-makers, sign and share petitions and letters on social media platforms, and take other urgent actions to make sure nobody is left out or left behind in our collective response to this crisis.

There are still ways we can act in love, solidarity, and compassion for the good of all of our neighbors. We look forward to working with you to show the power of faithful people!
