St. Johns Campus January Teaching Series – “A Faith That Works”
Wouldn’t it be great if life came with a how-to manual? Well, if we dig deep enough, we will find tucked into the back of the New Testament the short book of James. James is a letter that serves as a how-to manual for the Christian life. When we deal with life’s trials, contentions, and a lack of faith, James teaches us that we can still have joy in the midst of our circumstances. This January, begin the new year with A Faith That Works. Discover a genuine faith in Christ that will see you through the ups and downs, the twists and turns that this new year is sure to bring.
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.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED at WESLEY WOODS – Over the years, many of you have heard of the Michigan Conference camp – Wesley Woods.

Please LIKE the “Wesley Woods Camp & Retreat Center” Facebook page to watch for upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and our wish list.

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/
