Registration fee is $40 ($20 for students) and includes three meals as well as retreat materials. Questions? Email: or you can register now!

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: Skipping a shoutout?! What is happening… a praise! A little personal encouragement – maybe you do not need it but I do!

Late, last Saturday night, I flew back from vacation to find out we were still and yet again displaced and OH! meeting in the afternoon (#throwback #churchplant). The post-vacation glow faded rapidly, and the head banging on my desk began immediately. Until the Lord (maybe He rolled His eyes at me? #wouldvebeenappropriate) leaned in and reminded me, we have been displaced before… In fact, we were displaced for over 100 days just earlier this year. Which is not close to 146,000 days the Israelites were for over 40 years. God has been clear – His people are sojourners; eagerly looking to their eternal home not this earthly one. So #bringiton all over again. God knows what He is about and where that will be for His people! Countless servants at Redeemer illustrate that for me – most of all, our Savior Christ.

Redeemer Women Retreat Registration


Unfortunately, due to continued occupancy permit issues, we will NOT be gathering at Arlington United Methodist as a church family. We are working hard to resolve these issues with the county and hopefully will have an answer by next week.

The good news is that we WILL gather as a church on Sunday for our members meeting (non-members are welcome to attend). We will meet at Westover Baptist Church (1125 Patrick Henry Dr, Arlington, VA 22205) from 5-6pm. A parent co-op is available for child care. We will take this time to discuss our building situation, sing and pray, and cover other important issues for our church.

Please make it a priority to attend if at all possible!

Sunday Service CANCELLED for tomorrow

Unfortunately, our Sunday service tomorrow is CANCELLED.

This past week we were made aware by the county of some safety concerns and permit issues for our building that have be taken care of before we can resume meeting at AUMC. Our hope is to get these resolved this week.

We encourage you to visit other churches in the area as we scatter on the Lord’s day!

Worship and Prayer night, TONIGHT, 7:30-9pm

Join us on the stage in the sanctuary for our monthly worship and prayer night.

This is an opportunity for us to cry out to the Lord together through songs and prayers. We want to be a people who are eager for more of God’s presence and work in our lives and church!

Pentateuch Study: Sunday, September 30th @ 9 am: The Pentateuch is comprised of the first five books of the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. It is the foundation of the Bible, not merely because it comes first, but because it establishes the basis of God’s message to the world. Over the next 5 weeks, we will discuss its author, literary form, and historical content. We will also study 5 themes that help us understand the Pentateuch better: Word, Covenant, Kingdom, Redemption, and Revelation. This study will be fun! We will spend time in prayer and discussion. We will even watch videos! There will be no required reading or homework, but suggested reading and application will be provided. All people are welcome! For more information or interest email, Jacques Villarreal!

This Sunday – September 16th, 2018

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
Psalm 103:1-2

Join us as we gather to bless the Lord and forget not all his benefits. We may have forgotten his goodness, or been tempted to doubt his mercy. But it has not changed. God’s promise is that his favor towards us will never end. We are forever united with his Son, Jesus Christ. That is good news for us to celebrate!

I will lead our times of singing and we will welcome Curt Allen, pastor at Solid Rock Church, as he preaches from God’s word.

As you prepare for our gathering, you can listen to the songs we’ll be singing on Spotify.

I encourage you to show up a little early to grab some coffee and donuts and be ready for our call to worship.

Order of service:

Call to worship
– 10,000 Reasons
– Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts)
– O Praise The Name
– It is Well With My Soul

Song of Consecration – A Christian’s Daily Prayer
– Jesus, There’s No One Like You
– My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less
