BEING THE CHURCH - Staff Meetings - November 24 (of a month long look celebrating Our Redeemer) Tuesdays are the time when your staff gets together. We meet for a little over an hour with devotions, time for each of us to share news and ideas around upcoming ministry, and tending to many details that keep Our Redeemer being a fine church. You can see calendars and papers on the table today as we are walking through final plans for the Thanksgiving Eve service as well as our shared worship service with Spring of Eternal Life and Savior this Sunday. We talked about Project Home, Advent, the Sunday school program, stewardship and a few more things. You have a fine group of people with strong skills, grounded faith, and servant hearts for their Lord and for you. ... See MoreSee Less
BEING THE CHURCH - Operation Christmas Child - November 23 (of a month long look of celebrating Our Redeemer)
Some of us tend to be Christmas purists who don’t want to hear the songs, see the decorations or think about presents until Thanksgiving is done. Others love to let the season stretch well before and beyond December which means some people need to begin preparations early in order to make the season memorable for others.
One way we were being the church again this year, and bringing Christmas joy to children around the world, was collecting shoeboxes filled with toys and useful items. What a delight it was to see those stacked in our narthex. We collected over 70 boxes and as you read this they are being moved from a collection site to warehouses and soon on planes for delivery. Children in many parts of the world will experience a little more Christmas joy because of our care and early preparations. ... See MoreSee Less
