New Teaching Series – April 19th – May 17th
Recently I read this statement that inspired me: “Preach hope when people need it most!” So, after Easter, we will begin a new teaching series on the Apostle’s Creed. What is the Apostle’s Creed, you say? It is the oldest and most familiar statement of the Christian faith that we have. The word “creed” comes from the Latin and it means “I believe.” By the end of the second century local church leaders began to write brief summaries of the faith to be used with candidates for baptism. These summaries were the earliest evidence for the emergence of creeds in the life of the Christian Church. These creeds were designed to define the faith, defend the faithful, and declare to the world what the church believed. We live in a time when Covid19 pandemic has challenged our way of life and the foundations of many things we hold dear. We’ve had weeks without being able to worship in public places, eat at our favorite restaurants, attend school, be with our extended families and friends, or play our favorite sports. I’m hoping that this series, which is rooted in Scripture, will give us some new ways to think about God by identifying the core beliefs of the Christian faith – all with the goal of uniting us as Christ-followers and giving us hope. – Pastor Rod
LIFE GROUP GUIDES – Life Group Guides are now available each week in the worship folder, along with a note-taking guide. Take the message from
Sunday into Monday, and go more in-depth with a Life Group Guide. Connect your real-life experiences this week with your walk of faith…either individually or in a group. Click here to find out more about Life Groups.
MEMBERSHIP CLASS – If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a member of Redeemer Church, we invite you to attend our Membership Orientation Class at the DeWitt Campus. Watch the Worship Folder for the next class dates (Fall 2020). It is a great time to get acquainted with other newcomers, explore the meaning of membership in our church, and for us to share with you our vision and core values. Everyone is welcome and there is no obligation to join the church.
PIZZA WITH THE PASTOR – If you are newer to Redeemer we would love to have you join us at Pizza with the Pastor. This is a time for you and your family to meet with Pastor Rod, Pastor Tim, staff, and others who are new to Redeemer Church and join in a casual conversation. Reserve your spot today. There is no cost to attend. To sign up, email Wendy Elliott at email@example.com.

Offering Envelopes – Many members of our church family feel that having preprinted offering envelopes are a convenient way to give their weekly/monthly tithes and offerings. Once a month these envelopes are sent out for the upcoming month and include the envelopes for each Sunday of the month. If you do not receive this monthly mailing of envelopes and would like to, please contact Diane in the church office at 669-3430 ext. 303 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include you in the mailing as soon as possible!
