This Sunday – July 23rd, 2017

“Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”

Psalm 100:3

There isn’t any better news than this. We are his possession and his handiwork. We have gone from being enemies of God to being his children. We are promised the same inheritance as Jesus, his perfect Son. What incredible, soul comforting, hope inspiring truth!

As we come to worship this Sunday, let us pray that God would enliven our faith to behold him and be changed.

Moses Lee will preach on the crucifixion of Jesus, and I will lead our times of singing. We also have the privilege of having Rob Krause, director of Serenissima Ministries in Italy, give us an update about how God is moving in that part of the world.

I look forward to worshipping with you all!

Laura manages, trains, and recruits coffee team members and also serves herself on Sundays. Laura organizes supplies and coordinates schedules – and often stepped in to fill in to ensure we all have coffee in the mornings.

Good morning! Please join us this morning for service at 10:30 a.m. at 716 S Glebe. Donuts and fellowship at 10 a.m. We are excited to welcome eight new Redeemer members this morning!  

TODAY in Redeemer CM is BUSY with training this morning at 9 am and our Redeemer kiddos lesson is the parable of the wicked tenants. Jesus told this story to teach the religious leaders about Himself. God sent His own Son, Jesus, to earth but the religious leaders rejected Him. Jesus is the cornerstone—the most important One of all. Only He can save us from our sin.

As the projection team lead, Sarah has tirelessly worked with technology restrictions and software limitations to always ensure we have lyrics and Scripture projected. This is not a small task and she calmly works within the limitations but also seeks to improve where and what we can. Ask anyone on the projection team and they will share about Sarah’s gracious leading and support – THANK YOU, Sarah, for all you do for Redeemer.

This Sunday – July 9th, 2017

“For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.”
Psalm 62:5-8

This Sunday we have the privilege of coming together to sing, study God’s word, and take communion.

The privilege lies in the invitation. This is not a place we should be.

Yet, through God’s mercy, he has invited you and I to participate in a family. He has brought us out of the courtroom of his justice into his family room. He calls us to be with him, exalt him, and be changed by him. He wants us to experience him in his glory and goodness. To be edified by his word and through other Spirit filled believers. What a place to be!

This Sunday we have the joy of welcoming eight new members to our church, and I have the privilege to preach from Luke 18:18-30, the story of the rich young ruler.

Good morning and happy Fourth of July weekend! 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 lesson is the parable of the pharisee and tax collector. The tax collector knew he needed God to forgive him, and he cried out to God. Everyone is a sinner who needs forgiveness. Jesus took the punishment for our sin by dying on the cross. We can cry out to God like the tax collector and because of Jesus, God will forgive us.

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: It is always so encouraging when you see couple serve together! Braden and Kelli Pierson (nominated by Scott Moshier) are a couple who serve BOTH on the worship team and in children’s ministry! They are faithful to ensure our 2-3 year old thugs are safe and happy while singing and hearing Gospel. They will serve both on Sunday mornings and Thursday prayer/worship nights. And if only one is serving, the other is ready and available to jump in and help with random needs… i.e. like decorating for Good Friday service – thank you, Kelli! Thank you both for how you love and invest in Redeemer and HAPPY (belated) Birthday to Kelli!

Good morning! 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 are continuing to learn about Jesus’ parables! Today’s lesson is on three parables Jesus told in response to pharisees complaining that Jesus welcomed sinners. Jesus told these parables to teach about God’s forgiveness. God sent Jesus so sinners can be forgiven. As Savior, Jesus seeks sinners. He paid the ultimate price—His own life—to save people from sin.

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: It is always interesting to hear how the Lord leads people to Redeemer and He was specific to Andre Aganbi to come to Redeemer. We are so grateful that Andre followed the prompting of the Spirit and joined the Redeemer community. Andre dove into serving, from prayer to playing on the worship to volunteering with ONEU, Andre immediately invested in Redeemer. Thank YOU, Andre for all the ways you serve and care for Redeemer!   

This Sunday – June 25th, 2017

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.
The Lord is the strength of his people;
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
Psalm 28:7-8

This Sunday we have the joy of coming together to sing, study God’s word, and take communion.

The focus of our time will be centered around God as our strength and shield. We will take time to lament and ask that God would make all things right in this world. We will also sing about his perfect faithfulness and power. Jon is going to help us consider #whoisthis as we look at Luke 11:1-4, where Jesus teaches his disciples how to pray. Finally, we will take communion as a family, remembering that God has reconciled us to himself and each other.

Please pray that God would be glorified as we gather.
