Redeemer Weekly: October 1, 2017 — SERVANT SHOUTOUT: Worship Prayer Night Musicians
Good morning and happy October! Please join us this morning for service at 10:30 a.m. at 716 S Glebe. Donuts and fellowship at 10 a.m.
TODAY in Redeemer CM: Redeemer kiddos will hear the greatest scandal in Christ being crucified. Jesus was the sacrifice for sin. He rose from the dead, and those who trust in Him have forgiveness and eternal life. Please be praying for the hearts as they hear the Gospel!
NEXT SUNDAY, our monthly newcomer luncheon will be next Sunday, October 8 following the service at a member’s home. This is an opportunity for those new to Redeemer to meet leadership and members. RSVP to Jen Whetselll
SUNDAY, OCT. 22 we are excited to hold a baptism service on Sunday, October 22! If you have never been baptized as a believer, please reach out to Jordan (email@example.com) to get more information. If able to assist with setup or takedown, please let Jackie Black know.
REDEEMER SERVING NEED
Sunday morning rides: Sarah Scott is a dear older lady in our church who has been attending Redeemer for the last couple years. One of the ways that we practically serve her is by providing her rides to and from church each Sunday. This team is in need of more people who would be available to do this. She lives right near GW University off of 23rd st NW, with easy access to I-66. You can sign up for individual Sundays, which enables you to participate as your schedule allows. If you are interested in serving in this way, please sign up here
We are excited for multiple opportunities of growth and service for the Redeemer community this fall!
For Redeemer members and attenders
Starting Sunday, October 15, Jon Smith will be leading a class on reading and study God’s Story of scripture. Jon writes, “This course is deeply practical. We will work through multiple exercises on Bible texts. We will learn to understand texts in the context of the bigger story and the immediate context of the book of the Bible they appear in. Then we will learn how to apply the words of the Bible practically in our lives today.” Dates and RSVP are here
Men’s Group: Men, we are excited about providing this opportunity for men to gather together starting on Sunday 10/15th at 9am (location TBD). We will do a video series plus small group discussion called Stepping Up by Dennis Rainey (founder of Family Life). The following is a brief description of the series. Can’t wait to connect with each one of you, more details to follow but mark your calendar for 8 weeks after October 15th: “Dig deeper into what it means to step up and live a courageous life with Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Living Video Series. Based on his book by the same title, Dennis Rainey, along with Matt Chandler, Bill Bennett, Tony Dungy, Robert Lewis, Voddie Baucham, Stu Weber, and others unpack what biblical manhood looks like and what it means to be a godly, courageous man in today’s world. Through engaging stories, expert teaching, humorous vignettes, man-on-the-street interviews, and personal insights, these men’s ministry leaders call every man to become courageous leaders in their own lives, marriages, churches, and communities. Accompanied by small-group discussion and individual follow-up exercises, men of every age will learn action tools for gospel-centered living to empower them to be true heroes in their families and communities” Men interested should contact Carlos or Mike.
SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Once a month, on the third Thursday, we gather and worship and pray together. This is a time of refreshment and pausing to sing and pray to the Lord in the hectic place of DC. Dennis Bituin, Ian McBee, Caleb Quezada, Tommy Ruerkert, and Denise Swansberg (with Jeff Strickland on sound) support and serve with Jordan during this evening. THANK YOU for serving us through music and worship!
