Corporate Prayer – September 26th

Posted on Jun 10 , 2017 in Announcements & Ministry Updates & Prayer

Dear Redemption Family

We invite as many as can come  to join together Tuesday, September 26, 2017 at 7 p.m. for an hour of being together in the Lord’s presence!  We will meet in the Fellowship Hall from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Corporate Prayer.

Please feel free to contact us with any special testimonies of answers to prayers and /or requests if you can not attend!

Corporate Prayer is a time for praying for your needs as well as for the needs of others.  There are many ways to love one’s neighbor, but prayer is one of the most powerful.  The Lord instructed us to pray not only for our own personal needs but to reach out and pray for others as well. Jesus promised: “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:10). One of the most powerful ways we can pray is together with others.

During times of Corporate Prayer, prayers of intercession can be offered on behalf of your friends, family, co-workers, and so on  - for their needs, concerns, health problems, etc.

Because He Lives Lyrics

(Verse 1)
God sent his son
They called him Jesus
He came to love
Heal and forgive
He lived and died
To buy my pardon
An empty grave
Is there to prove
My Savior lives

(Chorus)
Because he lives
I can face tomorrow
Because he lives
All fear is gone
Because I know
He holds the future
And life is worth the living
Just because he lives

(Verse 2)
How sweet to hold
A newborn baby
And feel the pride
And joy he gives
But greater still
The calm assurance
This child can face
Uncertain days
Just Because he lives

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
And then one day
I’ll cross the river
I’ll fight life’s final war with pain
And then as death
Gives way to victory
I’ll see the lights
Of glory and
I’ll know he lives

(Chorus 2xs)

Attention: All Ladies of Redemption Fellowship Church

As we begin another year, let us stop to reflect on the physical and spiritual needs in our community. Many of you have inquired about the Women’s Ministry outreach works. The Women’s Ministry currently has outreach commitments to the following organizations: Fayette Pregnancy Resource Center, Fayette Samaritans, and Summerhill Community Ministries.

We realize there are many needs in our midst, but we need your help identifying the most urgent needs. Please share any community needs with the WM Outreach Committee Chairpersons, Linda Thomas and Andresi Johnson.   Thank you.

Fayette Samaritans Partnership

Posted on Sep 25 , 2013 in Announcements & Ministry Updates


Attention: Redemption Fellowship Church Members and Family

As many of you know, in the past we have worked to maintain a food closet here at the church. Over the last few years it has become increasingly difficult to maintain a high level of non-perishable goods.  So for that reason we have decided to partner with the Fayette Samaritans. The Fayette Samaritans is a nonprofit organization supported by many of the churches and community organizations in the Fayetteville area.  They provide food, clothes, financial assistance, and access to community resources.

With that being said, September and October are our months to shine.  For the rest of September and all of October we will be collecting food, clothes (all kinds), and money.  Redemption, it is our ministry to help the less fortunate and we never know when we may be one of those in need of help.  We are blessed to be a blessing to others, so I am asking that we all do our part.  Let’s bombard them with so much stuff they won’t have room to store it all.

They are always in need of volunteers to help with sorting items and stocking shelves, so if you have some spare time please sign up. It is a very rewarding experience.  There but for the grace of God go I, something I try to live by and have tried to instill in my children.  For more information on the Fayette Samaritans and how you can help please pick up a brochure in the Foyer.

Only A Praise Will Do

As I think to write this note, I have to prepare you with a disclaimer. Many of you may know that I have Pentecostal upbringings and some who may not know me very well may not believe it because I am not very Pentecostal in my character. I will say that my thoughts today are from that same background. As we are in the Christmas season and look into the approach of the end of the year, my work reminds me that this time of the year is a very sad time due to the experiences of people.

A Congregation in Prayer

By Former Asst. Pastor Horace Cutter

You might have been present on last Sunday in our worship service where our sanctuary was turned into a great prayer room. I have been contacted by members and others who were in attendance on last week, who said that they needed that time in prayer with other believers.

With All Your Heart

Posted on Jul 19 , 2011 in Announcements

By Former Asst. Pastor Horace Cutter

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…” Colossians 3:23

If you have been anywhere near the news lately you have heard the scandal concerning the teachers in the Atlanta Public School System. It is very disheartening to know that the teachers, that we are entrusting children to at a very important time of their lives, are cheating on the tests scores in order to keep their jobs as teachers.
