This Sunday – May 28th, 2017

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Phil. 4:4-7

This Sunday, God invites us to rejoice in his provision as we bring our worries and fears to him. We gather to hear from our Maker and rest in his power and strength, not our own.

What anxieties are you bringing? What situations in your life are keeping you up at night? God wants to remind you that he will guard you, protect you, and give you peace.

Let us come ready to hear from the Lord as we gratefully respond to his words of life.

Order of service:
Call to Worship – Phil. 4:4-7
– Forever
– Strong God
– Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery
– All Glory Be To Christ

Public Prayer
Greeting/Offering

Redeemer Youth Ministry Interest Meeting, June 24: Redeemer’s vision for its youth ministry is to create a place where teenagers are loved unconditionally, encouraged to be lifetime followers of Jesus, and empowered to be ambassadors of reconciliation in a broken world. The church is hoping to launch a youth ministry that reaches middle and high school boys and girls for Fall 2017, but we need your help!

Join us on June 24 from 7-9 PM at Dimas’ home (4636 3rd St. South Arlington, VA 22204) to learn more about opportunities to serve in or help support the ministry. Email Megan Hays or Laura Walton at laukwalton@gmail.com with any questions.

Young Life Nice Cream Fundraising, June 4: Ice cream and Young Life update! After the anniversary picnic you are invited to the Barcroft House to have a Nice Cream and hear what has been happening with South Arlington Young Life. Questions? jkemna@dittmarcompany.com

Coming this summer: The Redeemer Open! Redeemer 1.0 alumni may remember the original “Redeemer Open” tennis tournament in the summer of 2011. Jonathan Collegio is organizing a reprise of that effort, to take place in June-July of 2017.

If you are interested in playing, post a comment on this post in the Redeemer Facebook group. Include your USTA rating so we can best organize the bracket. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME TO PLAY, and no sweat if you don’t know your rating, they are explained here. We need at least 16 folks to sign up (we already have 10!) but it would be fun to start with 32.

Once the tournament gets going, you’ll have a set period of time (probably two weeks) to plan out the match with your opponent. If neither of you can find a time to play, someone can either let the other person advance or flip a coin to advance. (In the last iteration we had some logjam issues where pairs couldn’t find time to play, and it was holding up the next round).

In any case those are all weeds. But if you’d like to play, please reply to the Facebook post! Or email jcollegio@outlook.com with questions. Remember, all are welcome and you can join at any level of play!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: What a JOY to celebrate a baptism last Sunday! This shoutout is HUGE appreciation to those who made it possible for us to have a baptismal set up! Last, rainy Saturday, Jared Altman, Tyler and Aimee Robinson, and Laura Settle gave up an afternoon to set everything up! And immediately after service went back to serving and took down the baptismal. This is a HUGE blessing that allows us to celebrate baptisms within a Sunday service. Thank YOU to all who served and helped so that the community could participate in this joyous sacrament.  

This Week – May 14th, 2017

“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,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy.”
Psalm 103:1-4

This Sunday we have the privilege to respond to God’s call for us to come and worship him. This is a gracious call. He invites us to consider his mercy and kindness. He invites us rehearse his benefits. He invites us to know him better.

This is a privilege only made possible because of the righteousness of Jesus. We come not in our strength or obedience but confident in his.

As we prepare to gather, I encourage you to spend a couple minutes thanking God for the incredible privilege of knowing and experiencing him. Let your heart be warmed by remembering that God wants to meet you and help you. Then come ready to worship and respond.

Order of Service:
Call to Worship – Psalm 103:1-4

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: There were COUNTLESS volunteers who made the retreat a great, smooth time! I mean Capon Spring staff alone ensure the enmass of us were fed! Personally, Tali Kauflin was a praying, singing, serving point person who released me to speak on Saturday and Sunday. She managed the general and usual chaos of children’s ministry offsite, baby bouncing, walkie talkie authority. This was a huge relief and release to me so that I could not only present but also participate in the sessions. Thank you, Tali for releasing me and serving Redeemer!

“Praise the Lord, all nations!
Extol him, all peoples!
For great is his steadfast love toward us,
and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!”
Psalm 117

Why are you coming to church this Sunday? Habit? Guilt? A feeling of necessity?

God’s word tells us that we gather to the praise the Lord because his steadfast love and faithfulness are amazing. His love for us is great, and his faithfulness endures forever. We gather because the object of our attention and praise is a God who is better than we think he is and more powerful than we can imagine!

This Sunday we have the privilege of singing, studying God’s word, and taking communion together. We also have the joy of participating in the baptism of someone in our church.

Let’s come ready to praise the Lord, for he is worthy of our praise!

Here is a Spotify playlist of the songs we’ll be singing.

This Sunday – April 23rd, 2017

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.”
1 John 3:1

Join us this Sunday as we consider the kind of love that the Father has given to us! Later on in the book of 1 John, it says that ‘perfect love casts out fear.’ This is the power and effect of God’s love towards us. It drives out fear of his punishment, fear of rejection, and fear of the future.

God has made us his sons and daughters in order that we may know and rest in his love and grace. This is good news!

This Sunday we have the joy of welcoming 15 new members to Redeemer. We will also hear a powerful testimony of God’s grace in one of their lives.

Eric will finish our series in the book of Galatians and I will lead our times of singing.

Here is a Spotify playlist of the songs we’ll be singing.

Call to Worship – John 3:1
– A Mighty Fortress is our God
– Rejoice
– No Longer Slaves
– My Redeemer’s Love
