SUNDAY WORSHIP 10:30 AM

You'll make friends here!

 

What are the people like?

Our church is a small and mighty group of roughly 100 members of all ages, gathered together in fellowship and love to worship the One true God.  Because of our intimate size, you will have many opportunities to get to know people as we worship and serve together.

 

Our Pastor describes our members as the most “loving, kind, caring and compassionate” people you will ever want to meet!  Our members are mostly residents from the surrounding community, ages 2 to 90.  We are people who seek to make a difference in our community and be the “hands and feet” of Jesus.  We hope you will experience the love and fellowship of Christ through His people during your visit with us.

What's it like to visit on a Sunday morning?

We begin our Sunday morning at 9:00 am with Bible Study for people of all ages.  The adults meet in the Fellowship Hall where they discuss a wide variety of topics as well as books of the Bible.  The children meet in the Sunday School room for a Bible lesson, crafts and games.

We enjoy fellowship time at 10:00 am with refreshments before worship.

As you make your way into the sanctuary for 10:30 am worship, you will be welcomed and by our members and given a bulletin for the service with announcements.

The service generally finishes by 11:30 am.  As the service ends, Pastor DeWitt extends a blessing to the congregation and greets members and visitors alike as they exit.

What about Communion and The Offering?

How does Redeemer handle Communion?

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another. Our Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they may show forth his death until he comes.

For more information about receiving the Lord’s Supper at Redeemer, please contact Pastor DeWitt at 407-322-3552.

How does Redeemer handle the Offering?

During the service, our members are given the opportunity to worship God through their gifts and tithes.  The ushers gather the offering which is then brought forward and presented to our Lord.  God wants us to give willingly, cheerfully and freely, and not out of obligation. He does not need our gifts! He wants and desires the heart of the giver and our response, thanks and praise for all He has done for us.

 

What should I wear and what about my kids?

What should I wear?

Dress comfortably!  We welcome you to come as you are and dress in a way that makes you feel most comfortable to come into the presence of the Lord.  For some, that might mean jeans and casual shirts, and for others, pulling out their “Sunday best.”  Everyone is welcome!

What about my kids?

Kids are members of the family at Redeemer.  We enjoy having them present as we worship as a family of faith.  We make a special effort to ensure that they feel welcome and that there is something in each worship service especially for them.  Our Pastor believes that the sound of children in worship is pleasing in God’s ears and should be in our ears, too.

 

Can I meet with the Pastor?

We appreciate your visit here today and we would appreciate an opportunity to get to know you better.  

 

If you would like Pastor Dewitt to connect with you, please complete the contact form.
