At Redeemer, we believe that our light shines brightest around the world when it shines brightest at home. We don’t view “missions” as something that happens in other countries, and “missionaries” as only those who move to other parts of the globe. Missions is something that we do in our own neighborhoods, workplaces and cities. We believe that Jesus’ Great Commission in Matthew 28 calls us to be and make disciples of Jesus together. So that means that even though we support mission partners in other nations around the world, we view reaching our own community as integral to a healthy view of missions. To that end, we seek to think and talk about missions as part of all of our calling, not just those who are “missionaries.”
It’s our privilege and joy to partner in gospel ministry alongside several families and individuals that the Lord has called to gospel-spreading ministry in our region and around the world. Our desire is to continue to grow in our ability to support mission partners in prayer, financially, through short-term mission trips, sending missionaries out from our body (like we did in 2017), and planting other churches throughout our region as the Lord leads us.
GC2 exists to promote and cultivate God-honoring, gospel-driven relationships among young people, faithfully focusing on the Greatest Commandments (love God; love others) and the Great Commission (go and make disciples).
Our GC2 group consists of young people in grades 7-12, meeting regularly for the purpose of building relationships among one another as we fellowship around God and His Word.
On the first and third Wednesdays of the month, the children in preschool – 5th grade meet at our church building from 6:30-8pm for a time of learning, Scripture memory, crafts, games and other fun activities. It’s a great opportunity for these children to learn about the Lord, memorize Scripture, learn how to apply it to their lives, and build relationships with each other.
Our culture has many views of what a man looks like, and as Christian men, we’re exposed to influences all around us. God’s creation design placed men in a position of leadership—leadership that must be exercised in a godly, Christ-like, sacrificial way that is based on a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and what the Bible says a man should be in light of God’s creation order. The men of Redeemer meet on the second Saturday of the month at 8 am in the Spring (Feb-May) and the Fall (Aug-Nov) to learn from the Scriptures, Biblically-based books, and each other how to grow in the many facets of leadership and become Christ-like men in the church, in their families, at work, with their friends and other areas of application. For more information or the location of our next meeting, please feel free to contact us.
“To build up one another in the faith through developing closer friendships, pointing each other to Christ, and encouraging one another to continue in His Word and serve the church in love.”
Redeemer’s women are striving to grow together into women who are unified in love for God and our relationships with others. One of the ways RBC seeks to accomplish this is discussing God’s Word, reading books together, and spending meaningful time doing life together. For more information, please contact us.
Women's Partner Bible Study
We meet in pairs intermittently throughout the year in a 5 or 6 week intensive study of a book or passage of the Bible. Some such studies have included The Parable of the Sower, Hebrews 11, and Ruth. In these studies we seek to gain a more in-depth knowledge of God and His Word, and to learn how to read and study the Bible in our own personal time in a more effective way. As a result of learning to read the Scriptures more intensively we are able to make sure that every principle we hold is gleaned directly and deliberately from God’s Word. We also seek to discover encouragement and instruction that we may not have seen before. For more information, feel free to contact us.
E4:12 Bible Classes
… to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ …
Ephesians 4:12 says that the leaders in the church are gifted to equip the members of Christ’s body to do the work of ministry. At Redeemer, everyone who attends is a minister. We exist to build each up in love. Our E4:12 classes provide an opportunity for equipping Christians to better understand God’s Word and apply it. When offering one of these classes, we take time to do theology lessons and Bible book overviews along with topical studies like discipleship and biblical parenting. These classes help equip us to minister to each other so that we grow in Christ-likeness, just like the apostle Paul said in Ephesians 4.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer we enjoy Vacation Bible School, a time where children in our church and throughout our community gather to learn about what the Bible says about who God is and what He has done. It’s a joyous time of singing, crafts, games, snacks, and a Bible lesson. It’s a highlight of our year together! This year’s theme is Destination Dig, and our VBS will be running from Monday, July 12 – Friday, July 16. If you’d like to register for this year’s VBS, click here!
