Redeemer Weekly: April 15, 2018 — SERVANT SHOUTOUT: Mike Icardi  

Good morning! Please join us tomorrow morning for service at 10:30am at 716 S Glebe. Donuts and fellowship at 10am.

There will be no service next Sunday, April 22 as we will be on the spring retreat!

TOMORROW Elder Candidate Meet & Greet with Paul Curtis: Tomorrow will be the final meet and greet for our elder candidate, Paul Curtis.

TOMORROW in Redeemer CM – Our kiddos continue the study of the New Testament (1 Timothy 4:11-16; 2 Timothy 4:1-8; Titus 2:11-14), hearing how Paul wrote letters to the churches leaders, Timothy and Titus, to give Timothy and Titus advice and to help all church leaders know how to lead God’s people. Church leaders help believers know what is true, and they serve the church by following the example of Jesus, who served us by dying on the cross for our sins.

2018 Redeemer Volunteer Needs:

Children’s Ministry: Wondered why we always share what is happening in CM? Because we are blessed to share and show the Gospel to over 60 kiddos in children ministry every Sunday! Currently we have a need for more volunteers to serve in our one-year-old class! If you’re a member of Redeemer and ready to see what is happening downstairs, let Jackie know!

  • PSST – Not ready to commit to monthly serving? What about a day? Saturday, June 2nd will be a clean up day for the CM space!
  • Random CM Request: Still not ready for the day or monthly commitment? We got you covered in what we randomly need! We are looking for a donated MacBook and two old iPhones for production and projection purposes! I can provide a 2018 tax receipt of the donated goods! As with all CM things — email: jackie@redeemerarlington.com

Upcoming Community Events

FlourishNow Job Fair: We are excited to be supporting FlourishNow (where Redeemer alums, Leah Hughey and Andrew Brown work) in sharing about a job fair in May! Check out the FlourishNow website for mission and purpose BUT also check out volunteer opportunities about the May 24, 2018 Job Fair… This is about supporting local needs, connecting people to church and job resources.

Further and registration (cost $185) is here!

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!

Her impeccable organizational skills, her heart of deep love for those in our local community, and her godly example of humility are all powerfully displayed through her work in ESL.

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: With a large roster of children ministry (see volunteer need above!), there are a lot of schedule and calendaring dancing for volunteers to cover every Sunday. John Allevato is a rockstar hall monitor and coverage volunteer. Even when he does not need a switch, he will substitute with another volunteer to ensure we have security and sign in success on a Sunday morning – this is a huge blessing for all. 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 😮

There will definitely be others to thank BUT these ladies are taking all sort of prep tasks and serving my brain and schedule – you will see their names throughout the preparations so I wanted to introduce them and say THANK YOU, ladies for jumping in already!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: Some of my favorite shoutouts are the quiet, mover/shakers in Redeemer. Quiet and mover/shaker do not necessarily seem congruent however, Carlos Dimas is one who quietly, humbly, and joyfully moves the Redeemer body as he prompts and initiates youth and men ministries; in addition to participating in speaking roles on Sunday! Carlos patiently leads and trains our youth and men leaders to make disciples in our Redeemer community and we are deeply grateful. Thank YOU, Carlos for how you lovingly, patiently, add quietly move and shake Redeemer for the Lord!

Psst – his beautiful bride, Cory also loves and serves our ladies through ReWinD and discipleship! ALSO her cooking should never to be missed! .never.
