Upcoming Events

Annual Meeting - February 12

All voting members of Redeemer are asked to gather on Sunday, February 12 at 12 pm for our annual congregational meeting.  This includes all confirmed youth! It is important that as many voting members attend as possible. The annual meeting provides an opportunity to ask questions, discuss and vote on significant decisions and issues facing our church.

Parents Night Out - February 19

The Redeemer Youth Group will be hosting a "Parents Night Out" to raise money for their upcoming mission trip to West Virginia!

Parents are invited to drop their kids off between 5 and 7 pm on Sunday, February 19 and enjoy an evening on the town. The youth group will lead the kids in playing games, eating pizza, and having "minimal" amounts of sugar. This opportunity is free but a free-will offering is suggested to go towards the mission trip fund. Contact Pastor Josh with any questions.

We are asking that all children who attend are potty-trained.
