Yikes, it's August. July is definitely the fastest 31 days of the year (and March the slowest!).

Baptisms & Dedications: I always enjoy welcoming kids into the church family through baptism and dedication. Sunday was no exception. I hope we will come around these families and give them our support as they raise their kids to follow Jesus:
  • Mike & Rebekah Draxler (Veyah)
  • Jackson & Chelsie McMahon (Elias)
  • Cody & Ashley Falkner (Mya)
  • Alex Vorwald (Treyson)
  • Jeff & Jamie Blomquist (Reagan)
  • Jeremy & Denise Faber (Isabella)
  • Jason O'Leary, Renae Lapointe (Giovanna)
  • Justin & Jen Parker (Olivia)
  • Adam & Megan Sances (Piper)
We're Telling Stories at Cedarbrook - I closed out the B.L.E.S.S. series by talking about how to share your story about God. Then I interviewed Lloyd Stunkel to hear his story of how God met him in a very personal way. Be sure to listen to the message. You will be encouraged! Thanks Lloyd for sharing it!

We are going to continue telling stories for the next two Sundays. I always like to feature new ministry leaders and so over the next two weeks we'll hear from Mitch Haaby (youth) and Emilie Menz (worship). 

hope to cya Sunday!

p.s. I hope you were able to make it out to Emilie's concert on Monday night. We have one more concert in store for you on the last Monday of August (28th) with Sue Orfield and her band.

Believer Baptism - Confirmation,  August 13th at 6:00 p.m.
Declare Your Faith or Come to Hear the Stories


Baptism is a person's public declaration of their new faith in Christ and commitment to follow his teaching. If you've never been baptized, now is the time! 

If you were baptized as an infant but want to confirm your faith, this is your time as well.
  • Baptism/Confirmation: Sunday August 13th 6PM. 
  • Meet with Pastor Remy before August 13th. Email him here to set up meeting.
  • Bring a dessert to share after the baptism.
  • Invite your friends and family. It's a great celebration of faith!
To learn more about baptism, please read this document.

Reading Through the New Testament
Preparing now for a Fall launch



Reading through the New Testament
Reading through the
New Testament
This fall we will take eight weeks to read our way through the New Testament with sermons and videos to support our reading.

In addition to the daily readings, videos, and sermons, we want to offer 25 circles where people meet to discuss the weekly New Testament readings.

Would you consider facilitating one of these reading groups? If you are currently leading a circle, would you consider joining this new study?

To learn more, read this page and watch the embedded video. Please contact Lisa Diederich if you are interested in facilitating a circle. 

Want to get a head start? This website will give you a link to download a free e-book of the New Testament, a free audio version, and links to daily videos that help explain the Bible.

Consider Transformation Prayer Ministry (TPM)
When counseling isn't enough

Cedarbrook's best kept secret is our Transformation Prayer Ministry (TPM). TPM helps facilitate inner healing of deep hurts that manifest in depression, shame, anger, fear, etc. 

If you have struggled with these problems and found no help elsewhere, then maybe it's time to try something new.  

We have a trained team of prayer facilitators. To learn more, watch the introductory video and then email Lisa Diederich to set up an introductory meeting. 

Jesus came to set us free. Don't let your past keep you in bondage.
