July News

We survived VBS 2k18!

So. Much. Fun. As I've been reflecting on the past week... I'm overwhelmed with how much joy, laughter, and spirit-led service took place at VBS. The gospel was proclaimed, our God was glorified through song and dance and friendship, and the faith of children was encouraging. What an incredible picture of the Church-- to see everyone coming together and caring for the tiniest in our community with the love of Christ. Pray that the kids would know how valued they are in God's kingdom!

Thank you to everyone who served at VBS! 

Photos from the week are available on the Redeemer Kids' page!

We need Community Group Hosts for the 2018-2019 school year! Please consider serving the church in this way by opening your home once a week to a community group of approximately 12-16 people. If you are willing or if you have questions, please contact Kristin in the church office. 

China Outreach Ministries is helping to provide temporary housing for new Chinese students beginning August 4th for a few days. If you’re interested in being a host, contact Joe
