Community Groups are open for folks to understand and experience what life together looks like. It is easy to say we value community, but oftentimes it is the idea of community that we like. We believe it is through the practical, nitty-gritty sharing of pain, struggles, victories, and dreams that we get to experience a fuller life in Christ. We meet the first and third weeks of each month.
Groups typically share a meal together. There is no prescribed curriculum. Each group, however, can decide to read a book together and discuss the sermon if they would like. The main focus of these times is to know each other and to help each other apply God’s truth to our lives.
Megan and Rhett Shirley lead this group in their home on Sunday afternoons in the North Main area. Please contact Rhett for more information about visiting with them.
It is one thing to visit a church, it is quite another to commit ourselves to each other. In our individualistic culture, it is very easy to go to church to see what’s in it for me. We might never consciously say this, but this is typically how it works out. The oft-used term “church shopping” betrays a consumeristic culture that has seeped into the church.
As Redeemer, we believe that the best way to practice community is by committing to community. We want people to find a place to grow in their relationship with Jesus. And insofar that they are excited and take part in Redeemer’s vision, we want to welcome people into membership.
We hold bi-annual Membership Classes to explain our Core Values. It is a Friday evening and a subsequent Saturday morning where we provide food and child care. Please contact Jesse Winchester if you would like to sign up for our next Membership Class.
