NEW TEACHING SERIES: The Power of Hope
For the next teaching series, starting September 8th, Pastor Rod and Pastor Tim will teach the same series at both campuses, with only one Podcast recorded. What do you do when you don’t like the circumstances of your life and it seems as if those circumstances aren’t going to change anytime soon? Jeremiah, chapter 29 has been considered one of the most important documents of the Old Testament. Undaunted by the 800 miles that separated him from his mission field, Jeremiah wrote a letter to God’s people who were in exile in Babylon. The letter was a comfort to those broken with homesickness and confusion. His every word, read and circulated among them, must have brought to mind all the ways that Jeremiah had tried to reach them with the truth. But these words reach into our time, as well, and remind us of God’s provision in our own places of exile. In verse 13, the Lord says: “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Based on the example of God’s dealings with His people, this new teaching series is a word of encouragement for those of us today who don’t like the circumstances of our life…and can’t see a hopeful way forward.
BACKPACK MINISTRY – Redeemer would like to extend joy-filled thanks for all of you who shopped, packed, donated, hauled and prayed for the 325+ backpacks! These backpacks were provided to local children, schools, and human service organizations. It is so exciting to watch students of all ages receive items that will allow them to return to school equipped to learn!
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 is a convenient way to give their weekly/monthly tithes and offerings. St. Johns Campus will be making the switch to the DeWitt Campus mailed envelopes for the coming year. Once a month these envelopes are sent out for the upcoming month and include the envelopes for each Sunday of the month and any special offering for the month. If you like the convenience of envelopes and would like to be added to this system please contact Marie in the St. Johns campus office at 224-6859, or email her at Redeemer.firstname.lastname@example.org so we can include you in the mailing for the first of the year. Please respond even if you had envelopes and used them this year, or you haven’t had them and would like to have envelopes. Note: The use of offering envelopes help us to know how you want your contributions to be used. We also offer Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT) and Text-to-Give 517-731-0518. To find out more about giving at Redeemer go to https://www.myredeemer.church/stjohns/ministries/giving/
