What matters most in life are relationships. And that is what the church is all about: Relationship – with God and with one another. Redeemer is our network of Community Groups – our front-line of pastoral care. They are also the place where new members become part of the family, and where we encourage accountability and discipleship, develop leaders, identify people’s gifts, and provide service and ministry opportunities. Within these groups, a primary Christian community is developed and fostered. People are nurtured, equipped and released for God's work in the world. These groups also provide an opportunity for deeper friendships, mutual support, practical love and service, learning about the Christian faith, prayer, and sharing of what God is doing in our midst.
Serve on a ministry team
Redeemer highly values how God has made his sons and daughters unique, and given them spiritual gifts to serve the church family. We empower congregation members to serve on a team that uses their passions, experiences, and gifts for ministry through clearly defined roles, with on-the-job coaching, and by creating space for them to fail and celebrating them when they succeed. Our lay leaders commit to serving in ministry roles for one year (June - May).
Children's Sunday school
Redeemer welcomes your children to be present in our worship services. We also provide age appropriate worship for your children before Sunday Services that shares the Bible's story of Jesus Christ. We believe that our children can and should be invited to trust in Jesus and worship him from their earliest days.
Redeemer is passionate about reaching young people with the grace of Jesus Christ. We have an active youth group that meets on Sunday morning before the worship service, monthly activities, and an annual mission trip. We are committed to raising up the next generation of leaders by incorporating them into the life and activities of the church.
For details on our group, see our Youth Group Information sheet.
For questions, email our Youth Coordinator, Jordon Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Redeemer’s Adult Discipleship Program is based on the Scriptural pattern that Jesus used in order to evangelize, establish, and equip His followers so that they may be leaders in sharing the kingdom of God with others. Therefore, Redeemer has established four “foundational classes” that we believe are necessary for spiritual growth in all believers. We also provide a selection of spiritual growth opportunities called “gospel intensives” that are taught by a mentor-teacher.
These are offered during Sunday School.
Offerings this year:
“Justification by Faith” and Gospel Identity Classes, resumes September 15th (Sundays, 9:15am-10:15am)
Identity Mapping Ministry
Identity Mapping is a discipleship path that enables Christians to fulfill their life calling because they are convinced that God delights in them. Through a two hour listening session with an Identity Mapping leader, one-on-one sessions with coaches, and Bible studies and quarterly dinners, small groups of men and women learn how they are equipped to uniquely reflect God’s glory to the world. Learn more here.
Women's Bible Study
The Women's Bible Study will be starting up in the fall, meeting every two weeks. Start date is TBA in October, with 5 sessions before Christmas, and the final 5 starting up in late January. Depending on interest there may be a morning and evening study and the dates may switch to some Saturdays for working women. The study will be The Person of Jesus Unit 3 (Dependence on God). We will take a look at Jesus' dependence on his Father rooted in a deep understanding of Scripture and a life of prayer that shapes all of his relationships along with the freedom he found to live his life fully here on earth. Contact Jenny Dorsey (email@example.com) if you are interested in participating (please note if you’d prefer a morning or evening study).

At the Redeemer Men’s Retreat men of all ages – young and old – gather in the beauty of God’s creation to relax with great food, fun, and worship.
For fun, there are sporting activities and games like chess and programming contests. And, of course, there is time for worship, and heart to heart talks as men, and committing ourselves afresh and anew to follow Jesus and fight for mercy and justice, and our marriages and families.
The purpose of Redeemer's annual Men's Retreat is to deepen our friendships, to grow in our calling as godly men, and to step forward into our common cause as Christ's church. We especially encourage father's to bring their sons (13 years and older) and mentors to bring the young men they are mentoring.
2020 Date: TBD
Join us for a time to get away, be refreshed, fellowship, and learn. Our annual women’s retreats are rich times of sharing our lives with each other. At our annual retreat we hear the stories of women in our church, and get to see who they really are. We are invited to know and be known, to apply the gospel to every story and every situation in life, to lean on one another and thus find strength for tomorrow.
2020 Date: TBD
Membership At Redeemer
The essence of Christianity is community in Jesus Christ and through Jesus Christ. People grow through long-term covenant relationships with a community of people, learning to forgive, learning how to stay in relationship. Every believer is part of the church as organism (the Spiritual Body of Christ), but only by a public promise can you be part of the church as organization, as a gathered community.
To become a member of a church is to make a public promise to live according to the Word and to support the work of the congregation. In the Bible this is called "a covenant". A public promise, or covenant, is the basis for all society, according to the Bible: marriage, employment, citizenship, church membership, etc. are all relationships of accountability.
Membership in a church is not like membership in a social club or other organization. Most organizations see their members as consumers, the ones whom the organization serves. But in the church, membership means ministry and service; to be a member at Redeemer means moving beyond being a consumer to becoming a provider of God’s love and care to others.
Discovering Redeemer Weekend Seminar
The path to becoming a member starts with Redeemer’s Discovering Redeemer weekend seminar. This seminar is offered regularly throughout the year. Hosted at Pastor Jason and Jenny Dorsey’s apartment, the seminar begins on Friday evening from 6:00 – 9:00 pm to begin digging into the information. Then on Saturday morning, everyone regroups at the Dorseys from 9:00am to noon for brunch and to complete reading through the Discovering Redeemer material.
Discovering Redeemer is designed to provide you with information about Redeemer and the opportunities for you to become involved in ministry. It is also designed to answer some common questions about what it means to be a believer in Christ, what it means to be a part of a Presbyterian Church (PCA), and what it means to be a member of Redeemer in particular.
