RFC’s Wednesday Night Bible Study

Posted on Nov 25 , 2018 in Announcements & Ministry Updates

Attention:  Redemption Fellowship Church Members, Family, and Friends

Life is so busy – with so many places to be, so many things to do, and so much we are responsible for. We encourage you to take a break from your hectic schedule to join us for Wednesday Night Bible Study.

The study takes place each Wednesday night here at Redemption Fellowship Church from 7 pm to 7:50 pm.  Studying the Bible is one of the most important things a Christian can ever do.  God still speaks and one of the ways He speaks to us is through a careful study of His word.

Wednesday Night Bible Study provides an in-depth study of the Books of the Bible and is geared towards helping participants gain a better understanding of God’s Word and grow in Christian character.  It also provides an opportunity for members to connect and learn with each other while continuing to grow their personal relationship with God.

Everyone is welcome to join us.  We have something for all age groups.  We look forward to seeing you the next time we meet.

Corporate Prayer – November 27th

Posted on Nov 24 , 2018 in Announcements & Ministry Updates & Prayer

Attention Redemption Fellowship Family:

The next session of Corporate Prayer will take place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at the church from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Everyone is asked to please come and join us in corporate prayer.  In order for the vision of Redemption Fellowship to grow, it must be spirit-led.  This is achieved through united corporate prayer.

The word of God instructs us in Luke 18:1, “… that men ought always pray and not faint”.  Also, the Bible states in Philippians 4:6-7, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God; And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Christmas Angel Tree

Posted on Nov 24 , 2018 in Announcements & Ministry Updates

Hello Redemption Family.

Now, it’s that other time of year – A time for us to show what Christian love and the real meaning of Christmas is all about.  We will once again have our Christmas Angel Tree.  Let’s help families of those less fortunate to experience the same joy of Christmas morning that our families will enjoy.  Every mother wants to see the the light and excitement  in their children’s eyes on Christmas morning, so let’s help make that happen.  We have once again partnered with The Promise Place, a shelter for battered women and children, for two of our families, and a young teen mom of two who was a recent patient of mine.

Last year God’s blessings allowed us to make Christmas morning magical for several families and we would like to see that happen again this year.  I know this is an expensive time for all of us, but I also know that probably one wish on our kids list would pay for a couple of things on one of these list.  Let the kids be a part of making Christmas as happy for someone else as it will be for them.  Please pick a family member from our tree or join with another family to fulfill a request.  We work well together.  Please leave the gifts unwrapped, include the family number because no names are used, and have at church by Sunday, Dec 16th.  We can do this Redemption, so let’s band together and show the true meaning of Christmas.  Thank you in advance for all you do.

Advent: Waiting For The Coming Of Christ

Posted on Nov 24 , 2018 in Announcements & Ministry Updates

Advent: Waiting For The Coming Of Christ

Advent (from the Latin adventus meaning “coming”) is a liturgical season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ at Christmas.  Advent marks the beginning of the Western liturgical year and ends on Advent Sunday, the fourth Sunday before Christmas Day, Dec. 25.  For Christians, the season of Advent serves as a reminder both of the original waiting by Israelites for the birth of the Messiah, and the waiting by Christians for the return of Christ.  The most famous hymn of Advent is “O Come Emmanuel.” Its lyrics, based on the Prophet Isaiah, articulate the hopeful anticipation of the Advent season:

O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

Traditionally, many churches light candles of hope, peace, joy, and love.

 

Family Worship

Posted on Nov 24 , 2018 in Announcements & Ministry Updates

Attention: All Parents

Please remember that Sunday, December 2nd is Family Worship Sunday.  These Sundays provide time for our families to worship together and for recognizing our time for Communion.  All students will remain in the Sanctuary during our worship service today.

Due to a decrease in our nursery workers and an increased need for at least two, or sometimes more, nursery workers each Sunday, the Nursery will NOT be open on the first Sunday of each month, which is Family Worship Sunday.  The nursery will be available for mothers and their babies only if needed for privacy in tending to their needs.

For any questions, please see Elder Frank Brown.
