Community

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more a s you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV

At Redeemer, we believe that one of the essential components of our faith is community. We feel that it is important to educate our community of faith as to what we believe and as to how we can answer others who have questions about our faith. The more we know about Jesus, the more that knowledge causes us to love Him. This incites worship of Jesus which is central to our purpose. All ministries exist in the church so that we might grow in grace and be equipped to be better worshipers. We desire to nurture all believers “to know the Lord, to do the Lord’s will, and to be like the Lord.” E. Clowney: The Church.

Community Groups

Community Groups help provide a place for people to build new and long-lasting connections by serving others in small groups that commit to help each member meet the challenges of life. Groups meet at various times and homes throughout the week in our community. Our hope is that every person at Redeemer would live out true community in a Community Group.
