REDEEMER Church Announcements:
Sunday School Service Project Coming April 14th // During regular Sunday School on April 14th, the children will participate in a Thrivent Action Team Service Project to support the Little Free Libraries in our Harrison neighborhood. If you would like to donate any gently used children’s books there will be a box at church. The children will color inspirational labels and organize the books. The older kids will put the finishing touches on a replacement door for the Little Free Library on the corner of Penn & Glenwood. If you have any questions, please email Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org!

Every Wednesday during Lent, Christ English will host lunchtime Lent worship, serving a meal and hosting Holden Vespers worship at noon. Redeemer, River of Life, and Salem will alternately host the evening meal at 6pm followed by Holden worship and table conversations at 7pm. Wednesday March 27th will be held at Salem; Wednesday April 3rd will be held at Redeemer; Wednesday April 10th will be held at River of Life. Please join us as we get to know our Northside neighbors!
Exploring Spirituality Sunday Fellowship // Searching. Exploring. Grounding. Expressing. We all express spirituality and ground our lives in a variety of ways. Over the next three months, we will gather every-other Sunday from 2-4pm to explore spiritual practices through cooking (3/31), nature (4/14), mosaics (4/28), gardening (5/12), and bread oven fellowship (5/26). Whether you have no identified spiritual practices or are looking to dig deeper, we welcome you. Whether you join us once or come every week, we welcome you. Join us to open wide and dig deep to explore. For more information about each meeting time or if you have any questions, contact Andrea at email@example.com or the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seeking Volunteers // Mental Health Connect is an interfaith collaborative that works to provide community-based resources, support and education to improve access to mental health services and to connect individuals and families with the services they need. MHC Navigators work with a congregation’s ambassador to provide a direct link to the congregation as a whole and individuals within. If you are passionate about mental health, connecting people to resources, and helping plan events for your Redeemer community around mental health topics please contact Sara Hovren at email@example.com or by phone at (309) 826-8647.
