Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: Throughout August, every Sunday had a children’s ministry training and subsequently a superhero fashion show has occurred (both DC and Marvel!) – with the tradition Batman shirt showing tomorrow!

However, a true children’s ministry superhero is Gay Brown. Her superhero ability include invisibility with impact, long distance coordination and speed, and musical strength and planning. Although on summer break and at sabbatical house in North Carolina, Gay has kept me sane, and all GPTV Explorer on track including recruiting and script planning!, and also vision planning for our new updated, old, updated space! Her gifts have ripple effect for leaders, parents, volunteers, and most richly: kiddos! Thank you, Gay for being my favorite superhero and – yes, I do want to be you when (if) I grow up!

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: A recent staff meeting had me laughing and reminding the guys – I am used to working with all guys and being the only girl 😉 – which is what makes my fellow women deacons (chin nod, Betsy and Britt!) all the sweeter to me! With great and deep appreciation from all of Redeemer, Jen Whetsell will be stepping back from her role as a deacon of New Person Integration (for those with some panic – she is not moving!).

Jen was part of the first renewed wave of deacons at Redeemer back in 2016 and she came in with energy, ideas, and execution. Even her exit shows these marks of serving as she has set up systems and teams to replace her – and yes, those are plural. She saw needs, and ran to met them. She endured, graced, and grew the way staff, leadership, and volunteers thought about how to welcome visitors at Redeemer. We are so grateful for her – thank you, Jen! I will miss seeing your face at meetings but thankful you will continue to bless and grow Redeemer in other ways outside of the role you help identify and define.

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: On the 109th day, after displacement from flooding, over five moves, 20+ volunteers on multiple occasions, tons of coffee, laughter, grace, and dose of self-control not to wail and weep – we are finally moved back FULLY into our CM space – which is exclusively ours (and I have the locks on doors to prove it!). Wow – How gracious and good God has been to Redeemer!

This past Thursday, people gathered for a quick move, mindful organization, and pizza party to close the door on our displacement and excited celebrate the soon start of our new CM year (September 2018 – August 2019). Shoutout to: Ben Adams, Jared and Kelly Altmans, John Allevato, Jens Bishop, Andrew and Becky Davis, Jeff and Katie Martin, Caleb and Shawna Quezada, Stephen and Rocio Rabil, Brandon and Ellen Tusing – and I am sure I am missing some folks 😮  

Note: I asked myself if I was making a too big about this. However, when realizing we had been displaced from our space for almost a third of a year – I think it warrants a big deal for all of Redeemer! And personally, it has not fully sunk in yet that we can fully focus on 2018-2019 year…THANK YOU, Redeemer family for enduring, encouraging, and engaging in new and old normal process! Grateful for all of you!

She has handled last-minute changes and various problems on Sunday mornings with patience and independence.

Redeemer Tennis Open is back! Graym Kasko is organizing this year, which will take place in August-September. ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME TO PLAY.  It is going to be set up a little different this year.  In honor of the World Cup, we will have random groups of four that will play round robin style, so you have to be committed to playing at least three matches but that will allow everyone to play multiple people instead of getting knocked out in the first round like I was last year.  The matches will also be one set, rather than best of three. After the group stage the top one or two players from each group, depending on how many groups we have, will advance to the knockout rounds.

If you are interested in playing, reply to the Facebook post on the Redeemer page. Once we get going, you’ll have a set period of time (a week or maybe two) to plan out the match with your opponent.

Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: The spring flood 2018 displaced all teams – including our welcome team! It was delightful to see the Connection Table not competing with sanctuary noise!

It was overheard the director say that the Redeemer group was her favorite group. If anyone at Redeemer is interested, they are free to reach out to Bernard or Dan for details!

Daniel ALSO serves faithful (rain or shine!) on our open/close team which is a huge blessing to ensure we have signs out, taken down, and also general trash duty – nothing glamorous but rather a serving which is unseen in less undone. Thank you, Daniel!

Redeemer Weekly – 6/3/2018

Redeemer Weekly: June 3, 2018 — SUMMER updates and events — SERVANT SHOUTOUT: Maria Sifontes

Good morning! Please join us tomorrow morning at 10am for coffee and donuts at 716 S. Glebe Rd.

TOMORROW – Anniversary Picnic at Bon Air Park! Please join us for a pizza picnic lunch immediately after service as we celebrate our 8th anniversary of Redeemer! There is parking a’plenty! Bring games, lawn chairs, water, sunblock, etc. – all the necessities for a picnic. We are grateful to celebrate the Lord’s faithfulness to Redeemer. Psst – it is a “little” walk to the picnic shelter we have reserved! Also, if you are able to help with set-up/clean up, please let Emily know!  

TOMORROW in Redeemer CM, as school winds down for our kids, they learn of God’s plan and Paul’s bravery. When others threatened his life, Paul obeyed Jesus. We can share the gospel with courage because God is with us.   

TOMORROW, Men’s Group – see below for the update on the summer study plan! They will meet in Riddick Hall (promptly ending at 9:45 am to allow for CM set-up).

ADDITIONS to the Redeemer June calendar! There are two events in June which we are adding and want to make you aware:

Sunday, June 17 will be a Baptism Sunday! We are excited to celebrate baptisms and if you are interested in being baptized, you can contact Jordan: jordan@redeemerarlington.com

Sunday, June 24 at 5 pm will be a member’s meeting! Prior to summer vacations, Redeemer leadership wants to provide important update and information for Redeemer (followed by a pizza dinner!) If able to help with event coordination, please let Jackie know!

Note from CG Deacons, Mark and Betsy Teubl: Community Groups are the bedrock of discipleship here at Redeemer! You can find information about the current CGs, including the co-leaders, neighborhood, gathering day + time, and status (open or full) here. We hope you’ll find this resource helpful as you plug into the missional family life of Redeemer.

Upcoming Redeemer Events

Redeemer Men’s Group: Redeemer men! The latest installment of men’s ministry will begin this Sunday, June 3rd at 8:45 am in Riddick Hall and will occur each Sunday for the next 10 weeks. The Redeemer Men’s ministry is passionate about becoming men who know one another better and wrestle well through the trials of our time. Every one of us is striving for wholeness in Christ, and we are sure that each of us knows friends, family, co-workers, and others who struggle in the pursuit for sexual integrity. Therefore, we will be working our way through a curriculum that provides both the spiritual and psychological implications for striving for purity. Come join as we support one another and wrestle through these difficult topics together. All men are highly encouraged and welcome to join, and we are excited to see what the Lord does through this time over the next 10 weeks!

DATE CHANGE: June Core Seminar will be Friday, June 22 & Saturday, June 23 – Our summer core seminar for those interested in Redeemer membership will be on Friday evening, June 22 and Saturday morning, June 23. You can register here!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Nomination by the ESL team! Maria Sifontes is a huge blessing to the ESL ministry! She helps with admin tasks such as translating and printing documents, and collecting feedback from students. She is also taking the  lead on coordinating the end of semester potluck, where we celebrate all of our students’ hard work. Beyond admin and coordinating, Maria is always offering up a lot of good ideas for our program and encouraging our group with scripture! She recently sent an email asking me what more she can do to serve-music to my ears! Thanks Maria for so passionately serving our ESL community!
