SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: There is always a great sense of appreciation when an entire family serves and Joe and Kelly’s tribe is one of those families. Faithful members of Redeemer, the Walker family has served in multiple capacities. Thank you, Joe for serving on the finance team, and Kelly and the kids, for serving in children’s ministry. In addition, thanks for being an illustration in a sermon, publicly praying in the church service, and hosting parties at your house. The Walker family has been a gift to Redeemer and we will miss them as they transition into new church and area. Thank you for all the ways you have loved and served Redeemer!
