This Sunday

This Sunday – October 5th, 2014

This Sunday is our first meeting at Arlington United Methodist Church at 10:30am!

We encourage you to get there at around 10:00am to figure out where everything is and see the fruit of the hard work of so many members getting the building ready! We will provide donuts and coffee!

But this is about more than a new time or location, we have the privilege of gathering as a church family to sing together, study God’s word, and take communion.

Please pray that God would meet us with his Spirit and help us to worship him in spirit and truth.

See you all there!

Order of service:

– Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow
Call to Worship

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” 1 John 3:1

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering to sing, study, and take communion together.

It is also our last Sunday meeting at the Rosslyn Temple!

If you are a member of Redeemer, please make it a priority to attend. We will be having an abbreviated normal gathering to give room for us to talk about why we are moving to a new building beginning next week and all of the logistics involved. We will also take an extended time to pray for our church as we enter into this new season.

See you there!

“Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth! Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.” Psalm 96:1-2

Come this Sunday to sing to the Lord, study his word, and take communion with our church family!

Just a reminder, we only have two more Sundays before our move to a new location and meeting at 10:30am! Crazy.

This Sunday, we have the privilege of celebrating and rehearsing the glorious good news of God’s unending love for us.

We get to sing with some accompaniment from our Redeemer choir, and then Shaun will preach from Matthew 28, helping us understand God’s command for all his disciples to “Go.”

Can’t wait to worship with you all!

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:29-30

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study, and take communion.

God is going to speak to us as we gather. Isn’t that amazing? What’s even more amazing is what he will say. He calls us to come as weary, burdened people to find true rest in his love and ways. He will address us through his word, by his Spirit, and speak peace to us. Come to listen and delight in who God is and what he has done for us!

We will be learning a new song which speaks these truths. The first verse and chorus say this,

When I fear my faith will fail,
Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail,
He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold
Through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold;
He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast,
He will hold me fast;
For my Savior loves me so,
He will hold me fast.

You can listen to the song here.

Eric is going to begin a 4 part series on discipleship, preaching from Matthew 11:28-30. And I’ll be leading our times of singing.

I look forward to worshipping with you!

“The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice!” Psalm 97:1

This Sunday, we will gather to declare that the Lord reigns. We will sing songs that declare his greatness and glory, we will study Psalm 24, which speaks of his Kingship over the world, and we will celebrate communion, which reminds us of his power and victory over death and our sin.

The great news is these truths transcend how we might feel Sunday afternoon. You can come with all of your doubts and fears and worries and meet with God, confident he will give us faith to believe in his promises.

As you prepare to come, pray that God would use you to speak encouragement to others. He will be working!

I’ll be leading our times of singing, and David Fisher, a member in our church, will be preaching from God’s word.

Can’t wait to worship with you all.

This Sunday – August 17th, 2014

This Sunday, we have the privilege of gathering together to sing about God’s mercies, study his word, and take communion.

We’ll begin our time by singing these words, “Praise God from whom all blessings flow.” I encourage you to consider the many blessings of the Lord as you prepare to worship with your church family. Think about his many promises to you, secure not by how well you have kept his commands, but by Jesus’ perfection and victory.

Shaun will continue our series, Christ in the Psalms, by preaching from Psalm 72, and I will lead our times of singing.

You can listen to the songs we’ll be singing (including a new one) here.

“Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation. O my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation. All ye who hear, now to His temple draw near. Praise Him in glad adoration.”

These are the first words we’ll be singing as we gather as a church family this Sunday. We worship the King of creation, who reigns over all, bringing peace and salvation and grace to his people.

What is our role? To gladly participate. Come ready to sing to the Lord, come ready to hear from God’s word, come ready to participate in communion, and come ready to edify your church family. He will be present, and he promises to bless his people.

Shaun Cross will be kicking off a month long series entitled “Finding Christ in the Psalms”. I’ll be leading our time of singing in which we’ll have an opportunity to confess our sin to the Lord and find hope in his never ending love and forgiveness.

Can’t wait to worship with you all!

Here are the songs we’ll be singing to help you prepare.

“Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD, O my soul! I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.” Psalm 146:1-2

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study God’s word, and take communion.

Why is this a privilege? Because God has given us a family to be apart of. He has blessed us with good news to celebrate. He has given us his Spirit who will be present. He has given us an opportunity to be edified and encouraged by others, and to be used to bless others. We don’t attend because this is something we have to do as Christians. It is something we get to do as grateful participants!

In preparation, you can listen to the songs we’ll be singing here.

“And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.” Colossians 1:13-14

What great news!

This Sunday, we not only have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study and take communion, but we also have the joy of celebrating with 5 people as they get baptized!

Come ready to celebrate God’s redeeming, transforming grace. As you prepare, please pray and ask God how he might use you to edify and encourage others in our church family.

You can listen to the songs we’ll be singing here.

See you there!

“There is none like you among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like yours. All the nations you have made shall come and worship before you, O Lord, and shall glorify your name. For you are great and do wondrous things; you alone are God.” Psalm 86:8-10

If you’re anything like me, situations in our lives can quickly become bigger than our view of God. It might be uncertainty in your job, a relationship that needs mending, a contract that didn’t go through, or the disobedience of your kids. Sure God is in control, but functionally, life seems overwhelming.

This Sunday, as we gather to sing, study God’s word, and take communion, we have the opportunity to remind ourselves of what is true about God. He is bigger, more awesome, and more powerful than we can imagine. Everything and everyone bows in subjection to his plans, and we are helped in knowing that he is “great and does wondrous things.”

So as you prepare to come this Sunday, ask God to display his power in the very situation that seems overwhelming to you. And then come and sing with us, “I will trust, in God alone, when my world seems shaken. I will trust in God alone, I won’t be forsaken!”

Curt Allen will be joining us again to give the second part of his series on Conflict Resolution, and I’ll be leading our times of singing.
