This Sunday – November 18th, 2018

“I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no other Savior.”
Isaiah 43:11

Join us as we gather to sing, study God’s word, and take communion.

This Sunday we have the joy of installing Jim Riordan as an elder and will continue our study on the church in the book of Matthew.

If you’re tired and weary, come, God wants to fill you with strength. If you are feeling guilty and ashamed, come, God invites you to receive his forgiveness. If you are feeling confident in your own strength, come, and be gently humbled by God’s absolute authority and faithfulness.

To help you prepare to gather, here are the songs we’ll be singing.

Hope to see you there!

Redeemer Weekly: November 18, 2018 — Budget Townhall TOM. — Servant Shoutout: Brandon Tusing

Good morning! Please join us for coffee and donuts before our Sunday service at 10:30 am at 716 S Glebe Road!

Open/Close need, NEXT Sunday, November 25 – The whole of the open/close serving team will be out of town next weekend for the Thanksgiving holiday. If able to fill in for this one time commitment next Sunday, please let Ben Seck know!

Tomorrow in Children’s Ministry (CM): Kiddos, learn one of the sweet love stories in the Bible between Jacob and Rachel (Genesis 29-31) but also how human trickery does not disrupt God’s plan. Laban tricked Jacob into marrying Leah and Rachel. Even though Jacob did not love Leah, God loved her and used her in His plan. Through Leah’s son Judah, God would show His love for the world by sending His Son.

Budget Town Halls and December Member Meeting: Members, our 2019 budget meeting will be Sunday, December 2. Prior to the meeting, we’ll also have two town halls to discuss the proposed budget starting TOMORROW, November 18,

Redeemer Serving Needs:

Children’s MinistryMembers, we still have needs for our children’s ministry! Deeply grateful for our current servants but they need support from additional teachers and assistants. Let Jackie know if able to serve.

Coffee Team Most of us love and need that coffee kick in the morning; Sundays included. The coffee team is looking for 1-2 more volunteers to serve once a month and ensure there is the precious fluid. Let Lynne Walton know if interested.

Projection Team – Except for Jordan, not all of us know all the words to every song we sing which is why we need a projection team! Down two teammates, this vital Sunday morning team is looking for recruits. Email Sarah Mugg is interested.

Redeemer Member Community Outreach:

Arlington Foster Care Toy Drive: UPDATE! Thank you for the interest and desire to serve our area families through a toy drive for Arlington county foster families! For the next three Sundays, TOMORROW, November 25, and December 2, you can give me the toys! Current needs include toys for 0-1 year olds (five) and 2-5 years old (25) and festive baked goods. Toys need to be new, unwrapped, and nothing weaponlike or violent (i.e. squirt guns, etc.). For those interested in festive baked goods and help with delivery for the party on December 8 – I am still awaiting details but will keep you posted! If interested, let Jackie Black (jackie@redeemerarlington.com) of any questions!

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: Who has the rythme, who has the beat? Brandon Tusing does! As one who loves worship but has not musical talent (really), I love the nods and nominations (Jordan Kauflin) for the worship team. Brandon is one who jumped in early to the drummer role on the team – a much needed instrument – when there was a lack and need. It has been a joy and appreciation to have him on the team! Thank you, Brandon!

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

Join us as we gather on the stage to meet with the Lord and spend time praying and singing.

“Be still, and know that I am God, I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 46:10

This Sunday we gather to exalt the Lord together.

It is good for us to recognize that God is not waiting and hoping that his people will give him praise and worship. We are not doing God a favor by getting out of bed and coming to church.

He will be exalted. He will be honored and worshipped. That is not in question. His call to us is an invitation to participate in his exaltation. As we worship God, we discover the healing, transformative power of beholding him. We were created to worship God. We are doing what we were created to do.

Let us come to exalt God’s great name together.

As you prepare, I encourage you to listen to the songs we’ll be singing.

Order of service:

Call to worship
– This I Believe
– Great Are You Lord

Confession of Sin

Isaiah 40:28

Each Sunday, God invites us to encounter the everlasting God. He reveals himself to us as our Lord, Savior, and King.

You may have heard these truths thousands of times. You may come to learn about them for the first time. But God’s invitation is to consider again, to deepen your understanding, to be freshly amazed by him.

We gather to exalt his great name!

As you prepare to come, I encourage you to listen to the songs we’ll be singing (including a new one!).

ICYMI: Moses Lee had an article published by The Gospel Coalition this week, “The Cruelty of Victim-Blaming and Hope of Redemption”

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: We are BACK in our children’s ministry space – but with a learning curve as we share the space with Children’s Weekday Program (CWP)! Our third week CM volunteers took things in stride as we found supplies, learned new classroom set-up, electrical issues with lights – all while having a shortage of volunteers!

This was no small feat to pull off but they did – and that included Travis Shank jumping into teaching the preschool class! Thank you!

I have only heard praise from all about being back in our CM space… the one regret and plug is that we were short volunteers! Which meant we had to turn away kiddos from being in class. Each week faces this problem … Members, we are not at a full roster; and need 10 more volunteers to ease and ensure that classes are not closed due to safety ratios of kiddos to volunteers!

This Sunday – October 21st, 2018 – BACK AT AUMC, 10:30am!

Praise God that we are again able to meet in Arlington United Methodist at 10:30am!

Join us as we gather to exalt God through singing, studying his Word, and taking communion.

As you prepare, here are the songs we’ll be singing.

Eric will continue preaching on the church and I will lead our times of singing.

Let’s pray that God would work powerfully as we gather.
