We are excited for multiple opportunities of growth and service for the Redeemer community this fall!

For Men

Men’s Group: Kicking off in October, Carlos Dimas and Mike Henry desire to develop a “safe and intentional place for men to come together in the spirit of Jesus and learn what a godly man looks like.”  The group is in early development and planning, but they are currently “looking for guys who are hungry for more of the Lord to help sustain the kick-off efforts.” Those interested should contact Carlos or Mike.

For Women

ReWinD Returns! It’s time for another year of ReWinD – Redeemer Women in Discipleship – where the women of Redeemer connect each Monday evening, 7-9pm, for a time of corporate prayer, worship and digging into God’s Word together.  Gay Brown, along with other women in Redeemer, lead this weekly time of discipleship.  If you are wanting to connect with like minded believing women, grow exponentially in your prayer life and understanding of God’s Word, this is the place to invest your Monday evenings! You can sign up here!

Messy Beautiful Friendships book study: Tali Kauflin will be leading a study that  takes a look at a biblical vision for friendship. This study is one that acknowledges the difficulties and past hurts, but also helps us move toward the relationships we desire. This is an opportunity to fellowship with other women as we look at the gift of friendship, using God’s word as our guide. If you are looking for an opportunity to learn and grow with other women in Redeemer, come and join us in this study. The study will begin Friday, September 8 at 7:15pm, gathering at the church, and will continue meeting 1x a month. Email Tali if you’re interested. Order Messy Beautiful Friendship and read the first 2 chapters (or if you can, up to chapter 4), and show up ready to learn, share and grow.

For Youth

Youth Group Discipleship: This ministry, led by Laura Walton and Megan Hays, desires to grow a youth ministry that reaches every student, grades 6-12, by focusing on relational ministry. We desire that our leaders not only model the values and spiritual disciplines we envision for our kids, but intentionally walk alongside Redeemer’s youth to love, encourage and empower them to integrate life with the gospel. Launching on September 17, our team of leaders will meet with middle school and high school students two Sundays each month to share a meal, play games, go through a Bible study and build relationships with the kids. In the next year, the need is committed prayer partners who will faithfully care for leaders and pray for this mission, and individuals who are willing to give their time and resources to make meals or host meetings. Let Laura Walton of any interest or questions!   

Ministry Training

Community Group Leader Basic Training: Jon Smith will have another CG Leader Basic Training, starting Tuesday, September 12. The training is from 7 pm – 9 pm,  running for four weeks.

UPCOMING AREA EVENTS:

September 22 -23: Seminar on Gender, Sexuality and Fulfillment On Friday and Saturday, September 22-23, The Falls Church will host a seminar called, Being Human: Gender Sexuality and Fulfillment. The seminar will “explore the heart of the gospel in relation to these topics. Speakers John Yates III and Sam Ferguson will consider how the biblical view of our humanity bears upon modern understandings of sexuality and gender, addressing questions such as: How does the biblical story of creation, fall and redemption help us understand our experiences and identity? How does Scripture’s teaching on the creation of humankind inform our understanding of being male or female? How does the Gospel’s vision of human fulfillment square with the Bible’s sexual ethics?  How is the Gospel good news, even amidst our sexual brokenness?” You can sign up for the seminar here: https://tfca.wpengine.com/being-human-seminar/

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black “Hostess with the mostest” is an adapt description of Kimberlee Curtis. Her hospitable heart extends into multiple areas of church service.

She creates a welcoming environment which children feel invited into as they learn about the Gospel.

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black Member nominated: “Dan Mock‘s heart of service is displayed through how he cares for his community group, the church and the outside community.  Burdened to meet tangible needs in the community, he connected with a local food pantry and leads others in his CG to serve there monthly.  He also humbly serves behind the scenes at church by being on the set up/tear down team, which is not necessarily one of the most glamorous duties at Redeemer. He is also always willing to lend a hand and take out trash the weeks he is not covering to assist others and promote efficiency.  Dan, thank you for your heart to serve people like Christ and to spur on others to do the same.”

WHAT JORDAN IS READING… Parenting book recommendation! .Parents, are you trying to navigate how to properly use technology in your family and home? I just finished Tech Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in Its Proper Place by Andy Crouch and want to recommend it to you. Crouch uses a large research study by Barna Group to show how radically technology is reshaping the way families live. Based upon this, he gives 10 Tech-wise Commitments that are designed not to remove technology from our homes, but to put it in its proper place. He covers principles like using screens for a purpose and using them together rather than alone, creating more than we consume, valuing presence and even the importance of singing and making music. Tali and I found this to be a very helpful resource as we navigate how to rightly use technology in our home. I encourage you to read it!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black Summer shout out to our Sunday teams: Summer Sundays are like all other Sundays – a little bit of chaos and a lot of serving. Serving requires a degree of science, management, humor, and problem solving which describes Tyler and Aimee Robinson. This power couple of serving are a sanity of serving on Sunday mornings… they quietly save Sundays from ensuring there are communion supplies, to coffee cleanups, to setting up or taking down baptism Sundays. Tyler has been serving as a deacon for seven years and Aimee is similar in her role of jumping into serve upon her arrival at Redeemer. Sundays mornings happen because of the sanity and solutions they bring every Sunday – Thank you, Tyler and Aimee!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black:  There is always a great sense of appreciation when an entire family serves and Joe and Kelly’s tribe is one of those families. Faithful members of Redeemer, the Walker family has served in multiple capacities. Thank you, Joe for serving on the finance team, and Kelly and the kids, for serving in children’s ministry. In addition, thanks for being an illustration in a sermon, publicly praying in the church service, and hosting parties at your house. The Walker family has been a gift to Redeemer and we will miss them as they transition into new church and area. Thank you for all the ways you have loved and served Redeemer!
