CARING MINISTRY In Acts 20:35 we are reminded that “It is more blessed to give than to receive”.  As we begin 2022, you have an opportunity to help the less fortunate by contributing to the Caring Ministry.  The money will be added to the Caring Ministry account that was previously funded through the church’s budget but was greatly reduced for 2022.  No automatic payments from the church will go into the account monthly as has been our past practice.  The Caring Ministry account has primarily been used to help families with their utilities.   There are three ways you can help keep this ministry funded if you have a heart for doing so. 1) Contribute on any Sunday to the Caring Ministry by designating a special offering for such and putting it in the offering plate. 2) There is now a collection box in the back of the church marked Caring Ministry. 3) If you or your family are associated with one of the church’s memorial funds and would like to donate from it to the Caring Ministry Account, please contact Roz Burger, Church Treasurer.  The Caring Ministry Team

Grace and peace to you from our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ…

Galatians 1:3

I address these same words to my church family at Redeemer. We are grateful for the many blessings. God has bestowed upon us. We look eagerly to the future that offers us opportunities to serve Him. Let us continue to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and remind ourselves that He is ever present and the Holy Spirit will encourage us to do our Father’s will.

Just as Jesus faithfully attended synagogue, we too should to the same. Being together, building up one another, participating in worship and Bible study and other activities journey until we are called to our heavenly home.

Whose responsibility is it to see about members who are not attending regularly? It’s yours and mine. Make a phone call or a visit! How can I evangelize? Invite members of your family and friends who don’t have a church home.

Remember, always, are God’s dear child and precious in His sight! Marilyn Kirk, Evangelism Director

 

Redeemer is introducing an enewsletter in 2022. This does not replace our current newsletter- but provides a way to share more informal types of news with your fellow members. The enewsletter will be sent out the middle of each month. Do you have family news to share? Did you discover something in your Bible you’d like to share? How about a great recipe? Or funny joke! What's going on with your Redeemer friends or group? Did you visit another church while you were on a trip and want to share information about it? Or share a vacation photo! The enewsletter will only be distributed via email and will NOT be posted on our website for the general public to see. It is not our intention to exclude members who don’t use email, but we don’t have a good way to distribute it on paper, so if you are not an email user and would like to read it, please ask a friend or family member who has email to share it with you. You will need to “opt in” to the mailing list to receive the enewsletter. To opt in, visit the homepage of our website, www.rlccok.org, and enter your email in the “sign-up for our mailing list” box along with your first and last name. To submit news and/or photos - just fill in the convenient online form at https://www.rlccok.org/submit_news_for_enewsletter We hope this brings us closer together in 2022!
