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 6-12, 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 once a month 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. We meet on the third Saturday morning of those months at 8 a.m. 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.”
We strive to grow into women who are unified in love for God and our relationships with others. One of the ways RBC seeks to accomplish this is in our Women’s Group where the women meet to discuss God’s Word, a complimentary book, and the things we have observed in our study.We meet monthly in the spring (Feb-May) and the fall (Sept-Dec) and enjoy breakfast and coffee together while discussing and learning from the Scriptures and each other. Join us on the first Saturday of those months to discuss how to become godly women that demonstrate Christ-like service and love in our relationships with God and those around us. 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.
The Gospel Project
The Gospel Project® takes men, women, and students on a chronological, Christ-centered journey through the storyline of Scripture. In each session, participants will encounter God’s plan of redemption in Scripture through the study of Bible narrative, the essential doctrines of the faith, and the call to join in God’s mission locally and around the world.
The Gospel Project® for Kids immerses kids and preschoolers in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to mission from Genesis to Revelation. Ultimately, the gospel message changes everything; heart transformation can only take place when a child experiences the gospel. Through The Gospel Project® for Kids, kids and preschoolers will understand the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story—God’s story of redemption.
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 author of Ephesians, Paul, says is the ultimate goal in verse 13 of chapter 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! Stay tuned for next year’s theme!
