Check out the FlourishNow website for mission and purpose BUT also check out volunteer opportunities about the May 24, 2018 Job Fair. Their mission is to help with local needs by connecting people to church and job resources. Interested or curious? Grab Gillian Springerand she will be in the back this Sunday to answer any questions and have flyers you can distribute!

SERVANT SHOUTOUT, by Jackie Black: In a surprisingly (sneaky) way, Jordan and I managed to get time off at the same time (beach vs. lake)! And our favorite part is that everything is fine and nothing has burned down!

One of the reasons being because of people like Gillian Springer, who jumped into a mercy ministry role and handled multiple logistics for the upcoming FlourishNOW job fair. While Redeemer is excited to participate, Gillian has been excited and active to participate and coordinate so that those mercy ministry minded are directed, coordinated, and supported in this endeavor we love! From our ESL program to volunteers to social media, Gillian has handled it. Thank YOU, Gillian for carrying and caring this forward!

This Sunday – April 8th, 2018

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!

and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Praise the Lord!”

Why are you coming to church this Sunday? Habit? Guilt? A feeling of necessity?

God’s word tells us that we gather to the praise the Lord because his steadfast love and faithfulness are amazing. His love for us is great, and his faithfulness endures forever. We gather because the object of our attention and praise is a God who is better than we think he is and more powerful than we can imagine!

Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness.

“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.” Psalm 145:3-4

From generation to generation, we are to commend all that God has done. It’s our privilege and our responsibility.

This Sunday will be a bit different than other Sundays.

Typically, the kids in our church spent most if not all of their time downstairs in our Children’s Ministry, learning about Jesus from the incredible servants in our church that faithfully serve them.

This Sunday, we are going to bring them upstairs! The cast and crew that normally provide a skit for the kids to introduce new sections in their curriculum are going to do their skit and lesson in our main service with the kids present. After that I am going to give a shortened message on the importance of passing on the gospel to the next generation.

We want to highlight the work that is being done in Children’s Ministry, and invite us to collectively learn about and worship God, who is greatly to be praised.

See you there!

Order of service:

– Come Thou Fount
– Arise, My soul Arise

Gospel Project (Children’s Ministry Lesson)
Message – Psalm 78:1-8
– Amazing Grace
– My Redeemer’s Love
