This Sunday – May 1st, 2016

This Sunday we will gather as a church family to sing, study God’s word and take communion together.

Last week, many of us were able to attend our church retreat. This event provided a unique opportunity to slow down and have extended time to fellowship and worship God together. While our lives may be a little more distracted, we get to experience these same things on Sunday! Let’s expect that God will meet us as we gather.

Duke will lead our times of singing and Eric will continue our series on Marriage.

See you there.

Order of service:

– Great is the Lord
Call to worship
– Abide With Me
– No Longer Slaves

Public prayer
Greeting/Offering
Break
Song of consecration – Holy, Holy, Holy
Message
Communion
– Cornerstone
– Swallowed Up Death

Benediction

No Service – Sunday, April 24

The majority of our Redeemer community will be at the annual church retreat this Sunday, April 24. There will be no service but look forward to gathering again on Sunday, May 1.

Have a great week!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Today’s service we get to celebrate baptisms of Dennis and Dori. It is a privilege to witness their public declaration of faith! For this to occur, there is some brute strength and brainpower happening Saturday morning through the service… Jared Altman and Joel Borket (with hattip to Breck and Helen!) ensured that Tyler Robinson and me were not a comedy of disaster setting up the baptismal….really.  These gents guaranteed we could have baptism! Both lent muscle, vehicle space, and logistical genius. To be my “favorites” less than a week out from the retreat speaks VOLUMES of how much they blessed and served our Redeemer community. Thank you, Joel and Jared!

Psst – A little extra help never hurts so if you can help breakdown the baptismal, it would be greatly appreciated!

“But I will hope continually and will praise you yet more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge.” Psalm 77:14-15

What would happen in your life if you believed that God’s deeds of redemption truly surpass your knowledge? If you truly believed that God’s works are so great they go beyond our understanding?

We come together this Sunday to remember and proclaim the righteous acts of our God. We need to be reminded, not only of God’s works in our lives, but also of his many deeds of salvation.

Here are a few ways we are going to do this:
– We will witness the testimonies of two individuals who have experienced God’s salvation and participate in their baptisms.
– We will get to pray for three new deacons, who all have been transformed by the gospel and now want to use their time and gifts to serve Redeemer.
– We will sing about God’s faithfulness through the songs we sing
– Jon will preach about the new life that God has given through Jesus
– We will see 200+ people walk down the center aisle to participate in the Lord’s table, all testifying that God has acted upon their lives.

Come ready to be encouraged and reminded that God is working, and we get to praise him yet more and more!

Order of service:
– Arise, My Soul, Arise
Call to worship
– Blessed Assurance
– My Redeemer’s Love
Prayer for new deacons
Greeting/Offering
Song of consecration – Speak O Lord
Message
Baptisms
Communion
– Christ is Risen
– Grace Alone

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black Post Iceland: As fully expected, upon my arrival home I got to hear of more serving while I was out of office and offline. The greatest area I heard about people jumping in was Children’s Ministry! Last week we had a large service but some volunteers were not able to be present 😮 Rockstar Shawna Quezada, Matt Kessler, Jordan Kauflin, Graym Kasko, Tim Birdseye, and teacher hero, Nina Elliott ensured we had coverage for three of our classes. THANK YOU CM HEROES!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black from Iceland: When part of your job is assisting with Sunday morning production and function, being gone two Sundays (Easter included!) is a big deal. However, because of a large, long list of servants, I was released and encouraged to have my first offline vacation since joining Redeemer staff. How humbling and blessed am I to serve with such faithful servants.

Shoutout props to Laura Icardi, for being Easter CM Point Person! Leah Hughey and Ben Seck, for Easter Sunday administration! Ben Adams, for whatever was needed to serve Sunday morning! Jordan Kauflin, for all the details I forgot and questions he had to answer! Dale and Gay Brown, for being CM technology coverage and ever support!

I know that I when I am back in NoVa I will only hear more of who and how serving happened – so stay tuned!
