Mid-Week Lenten Meal and Service
This Wednesday will be our first mid-week lenten service at Redeemer. The meal begins at 6:00pm but arrive when you can get there. At 7:00pm - we will sing, pray and participate in table conversation. This year we will hear from voices from within Redeemer about their faith journeys. In our table conversations we’ll reflect on our own spiritual lives; the struggles, questions and experiences that have led us to where we are now. We hope you’ll bring the honest questions and longings that are on your heart. We also hope that you will invite friends and family for these great gatherings. We hope to see you there!
Singers Needed for “Northside Celebration”
Redeemer singers were recently asked to sing in a massive gospel choir with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Sanford Moore (Missionary Baptist Church/Penumbra Theater), and the Capri Theater. The celebration is called "Northside Celebration," and will take place IN NORTH MINNEAPOLIS on March 18-19!!! This is a great opportunity for Redeemer to join other northsiders to celebrate music and community. We would like to get as many people from Redeemer to join this as possible. Please contact Kent at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and for a rehearsal schedule!
