Week of Sunday, May 5, 2019

Here’s what’s happening at Christ the Redeemer this coming weekend, and over the next two months:

Discipleship Hour this Sunday, 9:00am

Even if you missed Discipleship Hour last week, it’s not too late to jump in on one of the three wonderful classes that are being offered! In fact, this will be the FIRST meeting for Joshua’s class on “Personality and Service: Finding Your Place in Ministry” – you don’t want to miss it!

As a reminder, here are the Adult tracks being offered:

“Personality and Service: Finding Your Place in Ministry”, led by Joshua Matlack. This course will examine various personality and individual features which can be clues to finding God’s calling for you at Christ the Redeemer.  It will also explore how personality, environmental factors, and gifting can help inform how and where you would both thrive the most and help others to live into their own callings. Note: This course is designed to be practical and personal.  While we will be guided by Scripture, it is not a Bible course; attenders should be prepared to engage personally with the material.

“Growing Compassionate Kids”, led by Casey Reed and Temple Richardson. If you are a parent or caregiver, and have already attended Joshua’s class (mentioned above), this class is for you! The book Growing Compassionate Kids by Jan Johnson is used as a guide throughout the class.

“Study of Philippians”, led by Father Brian Campbell. This class is for anyone who has already attended Joshua’s class. It does not require consistent attendance so drop in anytime!

The Youth track for Discipleship Hour is focusing on the Catechism as  preparation  for Confirmation (which will take place either in June or in November this year). It’s not too late to join!

The Children’s Ministry will continue discovering God through the Jesus Storybook Bible.

Note to Parents

Should you need to step out of the service with your children, the Fellowship Hall is available for you to continue to listen to the worship service. The service is piped into the Hall in hopes that this will be helpful for parents and grandparents.

Alpha and The Basics

THANK YOU to all of you who have been supporting these programs through your prayers, donations, and time. Both Alpha  and The Basics are up and running, and off to a great start thanks to you! Please stay tuned for more specific updates, but in the meantime we would appreciate prayer for the following:

  • For the nine individuals (and their children) who are coming
  • For the leaders, that God would use them to share and model His love
  • That the seed of truth planted in individuals (specifically through Alpha) would take root

Please continue to invite people to Alpha, and any parents and caregivers you know to The Basics!

Youth Cook Out

Don’t forget that the Youth Cookout is this Sunday! All youth in 6th-12th grade, and their family and friends, are invited to come hang out on Sunday, May 5th, 4:00pm – 7:30pm. There will be lawn games, grilling out, and a fire pit with s’mores as we celebrate our graduates! Please RSVP through the Evite, and bring a side to share (meat and s’mores will be provided).

CtR Talent Show

CtR’s Annual Talent Show is coming up on Saturday, June 8 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm! Save the date for this fun, inter-generational event which reminds us of all the gifts that God has given us! 🙂 There will be a covered dish dinner, as well as a ministry fair. More details to come.

May God bless and keep you always!
