We thank you for your wonderful, generous responses to helping Redeemer in 2022. We are filled with gratitude that we have called a new pastor. As we look at 2023, we aim to tend and care for our people, tend to the Redeemer Building; make more investments in the community and plans for interns and other new opportunities. We pray, “God lead us, God guide us.” The Redeemer community is indeed generous! To continue to end well and be in the best financial position possible for 2023 we ask you to prayerfully consider whether you are able to make an extra offering towards Redeemer. Please reach out to Pastor Jen Collins, Kelly Shumacher-Fuller (Treasurer), or Mike Tarras (President) if you have questions.
CHRISTMAS EVE & CHRISTMAS DAY
December 26-27th & January 2nd: Church Offices Closed
Pastor Jen will still be available for pastoral care during these day, but offices will be closed to allow staff time with family & friends.
January 1, 2023 at 10:30am: First Sunday of Christmas
The first day of 2023 is also the first Sunday of the year, and we will continue our celebration of Christ's birth with lessons & carols!
January 8, 2023 at 10:30am: Epiphany
The feast of Epiphany (“manifestation”) concludes the Christmas season with a celebration of God’s glory revealed in the person of Jesus Christ. In Isaiah and Ephesians, that glory is proclaimed for all nations and people. Like the light of the star that guided the magi to Jesus, the light of Christ reveals who we are: children of God who are claimed and washed in the waters of baptism. We are sent out to be beacons of hope, sharing the good news of God’s love to all people. We will celebrate in worship with a service of Baptismal Reaffirmation, recommitting to the promises of Baptism.
WELCOME to LEON DIXON, JR.
