This Sunday – September 28th, 2014

“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

It is also our last Sunday meeting at the Rosslyn Temple!

If you are a member of Redeemer, please make it a priority to attend. We will be having an abbreviated normal gathering to give room for us to talk about why we are moving to a new building beginning next week and all of the logistics involved. We will also take an extended time to pray for our church as we enter into this new season.

See you there!

Order of service:

This Sunday – September 21st, 2014

“Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth! Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.” Psalm 96:1-2

Come this Sunday to sing to the Lord, study his word, and take communion with our church family!

Just a reminder, we only have two more Sundays before our move to a new location and meeting at 10:30am! Crazy.

This Sunday, we have the privilege of celebrating and rehearsing the glorious good news of God’s unending love for us.

We get to sing with some accompaniment from our Redeemer choir, and then Shaun will preach from Matthew 28, helping us understand God’s command for all his disciples to “Go.”

Can’t wait to worship with you all!

Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned. If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

This Sunday – September 7th, 2014

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study, and take communion.

God is going to speak to us as we gather. Isn’t that amazing? What’s even more amazing is what he will say. He calls us to come as weary, burdened people to find true rest in his love and ways. He will address us through his word, by his Spirit, and speak peace to us. Come to listen and delight in who God is and what he has done for us!

We will be learning a new song which speaks these truths. The first verse and chorus say this,

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

You can listen to the song here.

Eric is going to begin a 4 part series on discipleship, preaching from Matthew 11:28-30. And I’ll be leading our times of singing.

I look forward to worshipping with you!

Order of service:

- Rejoice
Call to worship

- He Will Hold Me Fast

AT TODAY’S SUNDAY GATHERING, Chris Hemmelman will preach from Psalm 32:

“Blessed is the one whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man against whom the Lord counts no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.

“For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.

“I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.

“Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found; surely in the rush of great waters, they shall not reach him. You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. Be not like a horse or a mule, without understanding, which must be curbed with bit and bridle, or it will not stay near you.

“Many are the sorrows of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds the one who trusts in the Lord. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”

NEXT SUNDAY, Sept. 7, Eric will be back to start his fall series on the Sermon on the Mount, from Matthew 5-7.

“The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice!” Psalm 97:1

This Sunday, we will gather to declare that the Lord reigns. We will sing songs that declare his greatness and glory, we will study Psalm 24, which speaks of his Kingship over the world, and we will celebrate communion, which reminds us of his power and victory over death and our sin.

The great news is these truths transcend how we might feel Sunday afternoon. You can come with all of your doubts and fears and worries and meet with God, confident he will give us faith to believe in his promises.

As you prepare to come, pray that God would use you to speak encouragement to others. He will be working!

I’ll be leading our times of singing, and David Fisher, a member in our church, will be preaching from God’s word.

Can’t wait to worship with you all.

You can listen to the songs we’ll be singing (including a new one) here.

Order of service:

Prayer of lament
- Our Father (new song)

AT TODAY’S SUNDAY GATHERING, Shaun Cross will preach from Psalm 72:

“Give the king your justice, O God, and your righteousness to the royal son! May he judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with justice! Let the mountains bear prosperity for the people, and the hills, in righteousness! May he defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor!

“May they fear you while the sun endures, and as long as the moon, throughout all generations! May he be like rain that falls on the mown grass, like showers that water the earth! In his days may the righteous flourish, and peace abound, till the moon be no more!

“May he have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth! May desert tribes bow down before him, and his enemies lick the dust! May the kings of Tarshish and of the coastlands render him tribute; may the kings of Sheba and Seba bring gifts! May all kings fall down before him, all nations serve him!

“For he delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper. He has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy. From oppression and violence he redeems their life, and precious is their blood in his sight.

“Long may he live; may gold of Sheba be given to him! May prayer be made for him continually, and blessings invoked for him all the day! May there be abundance of grain in the land; on the tops of the mountains may it wave; may its fruit be like Lebanon; and may people blossom in the cities like the grass of the field! May his name endure forever, his fame continue as long as the sun! May people be blessed in him, all nations call him blessed!

“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and Amen!

“The prayers of David, the son of Jesse, are ended.”
