We trust that God is answering our prayers for help in becoming a loving, mature Great Commission Church that is excelling in worship, witness and prayer.

This is easy to do: Around 7:50 pm, Dial 712 775-7000, and follow the prompt for Participant Access Code: 685295#  (Ted will facilitate our prayer Time as we all refer to our Prayer Sheet).  Please text or call Ted or Martha Barnett with your concerns about how this virus is impacting you and your family. Please share with us your ideas of how we can stay well connected with each other.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him.  Psalm 91:1-2  (NLT)

RFC United in Prayer – Day #3

Posted on Mar 24 , 2020 in Happenings & Ministry Updates & Prayer

Dear RFC Family,

Let’s keep praying together in unity as the church scattered and take or create opportunities to pray over the phone, text message, etc.  Every day we will send a different prayer point specifically for us all to be praying that day from the #PraytoendCOVID-19 which was sent out earlier to you.  For today:

3) Pray for health workers who are caring for those with COVID-19. Pray for their protection from the virus, for stamina during long and intense work hours, and for safe protocols to be observed in healthcare institutions in order to keep them protected. Pray for health workers to seek the Lord during this crisis.

Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. – Psalm 107:28

(Tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25th, from 8:00 – 8:30 p.m. is our thirty minutes of corporate prayer via phone.  To participate, dial 712-775-7000; Participant Access Code: 685295# – Prayer sheet will come tomorrow.)

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16b  (NLT)

Together in spirit and prayer,
Ted and Martha Barnett

RFC United in Prayer – Day #2

Posted on Mar 23 , 2020 in Happenings & Ministry Updates & Prayer

Dear RFC Family,

Let’s keep praying together in unity as the church scattered and take or create opportunities to pray over the phone, text message, etc.

Everyday we will send a different prayer point specifically for us all to be praying that day from the #PraytoendCOVID-19 which was sent out earlier to you.  For today:

2Pray for those who are sick, that they will have access to the care and treatment they need. Pray for peace and perseverance amidst suffering. Pray for those in isolation who are cut off from their normal routines and support systems, that they would seek their strength in Jesus. Pray encouragement for the thousands in quarantine, waiting to find out if they have the virus.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. – Psalm 46:1

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.   James 5:16b  (NLT)

Together in spirit and prayer,
Ted and Martha Barnett

Bible Studies and Lessons

Posted on Jan 08 , 2013 in Children & Ministry Updates

My Dear Redemption Family,

I want to encourage all of our parents to be actively involved in the Bible Studies and Lessons your children bring home.  The Lessons are not confidential or private or anything like that.  They are transparent, open Bible studies, designed to strengthen them spiritually and therefore your involvement in this process is crucial.  Please take the time to go over their pamphlets and books.

The Preteens, for this next quarter, will be the only group not bringing home their lessons each week.  The Teen class will have a different study lesson each week.  The Lessons are designed to truly challenge them to be more committed to their Christian Faith and, to be Courageous in their Christian Walk.

The same applies for our Young Adults.  We need you to guide and encourage them to be a part of the Dinner and Conversation Bible Studies.  If I do not have the email address of your Young Adult ages 18 – 27, please send it to me as we will begin sending the lessons they are unable to attend especially for those away in the college and military.

Because of Grace,
Raymonde Neely
Redemption Fellowship Church Youth and Young Adult Director
