Feasting in 2024

Let’s Feast in 2024! I trust you plan to eat next year.  You probably don’t have all 1,095 meals planned out or anything like that, but I doubt many of us will go a day without eating unless we’re intentionally fasting (which I recommend!).  You probably have a pretty good idea of where you’ll get your food and when / how you’ll go get it.  Thank God it’s not all that…

Men’s Discipleship Day

Hey men, mark your calendars and plan to join us on Saturday, November 4, from 8:30-2:00 for an awesome day growing together as followers of the Lord Jesus! When planning for this ministry year, the elders thought it would be beneficial to focus on “loving one another” and improving our ministry to each other. For men, this is extremely important; because of a…

New Safety Measures

At Redeemer, the protection of our kids (and everyone else!) is a top priority, and in a continued effort to make the church building a safe place, we will be adding locks to all of the classrooms’ main doors next week.  Our goal in adding locks is not to protect the room or its contents, but people. As we’ve sought to learn best practices from others, we believe that…

Fall Discipleship Workshops

Paul explained his ministry like this: “I know that I will remain and continue with you all, for your progress and joy in the faith, so that in me you may have ample cause to glory in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 1:25-26). At Redeemer, we cherish this goal of “progress and joy in the faith” and to that end, we are excited to offer two discipleship workshops this fall. Both groups…

Convenient Access Parking

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve recently added six new parking signs near the front of the building. These signs designate parking for “Convenient Access Parking,” and they are exactly that! When the parking lot is fuller (like on Sundays or for special events), we want it to be easy for everyone to get to the front door.  If your mobility is…

With the blessing of a building comes the added blessing of new neighbors! The Lord has placed us in a specific place, and we are eager to continue to make His name known in this corner of west Aurora. This Sunday, we’ll have an opportunity to take a first step in that direction! We will be meeting at church at 2:00 to pass out door hangers in the local…
