HALLOWEEN EVENT – Each Halloween, the Clinton County Chamber of Commerce sponsors “An Event So Good It’s Scary”, a daytime trick-or-treating event in downtown St. Johns. Even with the Covid-19 restrictions we are going to participate, with masks and social distancing. Redeemer Church St. Johns Campus will be one of the “hospitality points” for the event, providing treats to children and a warm welcome to their parents. Last year we served approximately 250 children and their parents! There are several ways you can get involved:
– Donate Candy – please bring your donations to the church by Sunday, October 25th and place them in the Halloween bin in the lobby [Please note: Avoid bringing in suckers, as the sticks tend to tear the goody bags.]
– Volunteer – sign-up at the registration counter in the main lobby to help stuff the candy bags on Wednesday, October 28 at 11 am.
– Volunteer – to pass out candy (you are welcome to wear a costume) on Friday, October 30 between 3:30 and 5:30 pm (outside) in front of the St. Johns Campus (off M-21).
Questions, or to volunteer, Contact Marie at the St. Johns Campus office. Email: email@example.com

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD – Each year, one of the most important parts of our summer Vacation Bible School (VBS) is to share God’s blessings in supporting a ministry that reaches out to children in need. This year, we weren’t able to offer VBS, but we still have a great opportunity to support Operation Christmas Child. Our goal is 220 boxes for 2020! Click here to find out how you can sponsor a box.
FREE Wills & Estate Seminar – We invite you to sign-up for the free Wills & Estate Seminar at the DeWitt campus, either in-person or through zoom, on Tuesday, October 27th from 6-7pm. Limited in-person space, reserved for 20 attendees, and light refreshments will be served. Click here for more
TEACHING SERIES through 11/1 – “From Heartbreak to Hope” – The Book of Ruth is a fascinating story of loyalty, love, sacrifice, intrigue, loss, disobedience, and ultimately faith. This great Old Testament story gives us a glimpse of God’s redemptive power as He transforms a bitter widow and a former idolater into a family legacy that will eventually lead to the birth of Christ, Himself. Along the way we will learn from Naomi and Ruth about what God wants from our relationships as we walk with Him by faith. Join us in person or on Podcast.
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.
