Their mission is to help with local needs by connecting people to church and job resources. Interested or curious? Grab Gillian Springer, Jackie, or Jordan to learn more!

INVITING ALL RELATIONSHIPS: In response to Pastor Eric’s sermon series on marriage, Mark and I are inviting at least 5 couples for each relational stage (dating, engaged, married) to participate in a Redeemer Wide “Couple Check-up” for the month of May (powered by Prepare/Enrich, a well-respected clinical and faith based premarital and marital assessment tool). This is relevant and beneficial for any stage of a relationship, regardless of how great or not so great and everything in-between.

  • Go to www.couplecheckup.com, and add Group Code: 20414 – 2018 at the end so your results can be anonymously added to the summary report we’ll share at the end of May for corporate edification and awareness (see a sample here)
  • If $35 is a participation barrier, if you’d like to pay it forward and sponsor a couple, if you have questions, or if you’d like to loop in a team member, email betsy@livingmatters.com.
  • We’re still forming the marriage mentor team, so if you’re an interested individual/couple (married or not) to explore this opportunity, contact betsy@livingmatters.com for more information about realistic qualifications, structured format, and flexible commitment (closing the 1st team Sunday, May 20 or capping when 10 commit).

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black – This shoutout is actually to the majority of the Redeemer community! I want to extend deep, heartfelt appreciation to the Redeemer families – from parents to kiddos – and children ministry volunteers. I am not surprised but am continually humbled by your flexibility, patience, grace, and service in our new normal. In my call for all hands on deck, an overwhelming response came from so many – thank you!

Countless offers of help, faithfully reading all the emails I send, using grace and humor to encourage me and others – THANK YOU all for being a part of the Redeemer community who is rich with servants! You make my job a joy!

AND ESL! Lest we forget but ESL has also be displaced by the Redeemer spring 2018 flooding – after they were the ones to discover the water! The team has calmly, quietly worked with limitations and ensured that students’ studies have not been disrupted! Thanks, all who have continued to care for the broader community of students!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Recently, the discussion of serious skills needed today’s culture came up and I exclaimed, EXCEL! If you can excel Excel, you could rule the world! (Clearly, spoken by someone who avoids Excel 😉

Mike Icardi does not avoid Excel but excels in it. However, instead of ruling the world, he serves Redeemer as our deacon of finance. Mike wisely leads and supports Redeemer through financial management, accountability, and planning. His objective, financial  mind is driven by a personal desire to glorify God and serving His body at Redeemer. Staff, leadership, and now the larger body of Redeemer, have been deeply blessed by his work behind the scenes!

Oh! And when he is not excelling in Excel, he is serving in children’s ministry as one of the top contenders for baby whisperer!

THANK YOU, John for serving our children sacrificial of your own schedule!

And psst – it was John and point person, Meredith Leal who handled our lack of internet a few week ago. They ensured I did not cry but rather laugh as we completely survived a Sunday without internet 😮

2018 Redeemer Volunteer Needs:

Spring Retreat: The Spring Retreat (April 20-22) is a sweet time gather and rest together! To accomplish that time of refreshment, there are a lot of moving parts and volunteer needs from set-up to childcare to supply purchasing to printing… All skills have a volunteer match! :) Please let Jackie know your skills and she can find a need to help execute our retreat!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Were you aware Redeemer has a security team? Fortunately, this preventative team has not been necessary so not always known about. James Jabinal has been part of the team since the beginning and his quiet, discreet serving is deeply appreciated. He has alerted leadership and team to needs and we have been able to calmly, and safely, had Sunday services without incidents. Thank you, James for standing guard!
