As of this past Sunday, we have celebrated four weeks together as a newly combined church! While we are still adjusting to this new work in some ways, we have much to be thankful for and the evidence of God’s good grace is already visible. As your elders, we want you to know how we thank God for you and are praying for you. Specifically, we spent time this past week praying that God would unite us in love for one another, enabling us to share in the joys of gospel fellowship.
As Adam helpfully reminded us last Sunday, our prayer in this new season is:
“that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:9–11)
Please join us in praying that God might continue his excellent work amongst us and that our lives might glorify him.
As we look ahead to the coming weeks, we wanted to make you aware of a couple of items:
- First Sunday Luncheon: Beginning September 2nd, we will be setting aside the first Sunday of each month to share in a light luncheon immediately following our morning service. These potluck luncheons are intended to be a time in which we can share a meal together and continue to get to know one another better. Please bring a dish or item to share.
- Giving and Name Change Process: The official filing with the state of California to change our name to “Christ Community Church” is in process, but taking longer than anticipated. Therefore, until this is finalized, please make any giving out to “Redeemer Church.” If you have previously made a check out to “Christ Community Church,” please see Sandy Hansen for assistance. We will update you once this process is complete and when all giving can be made out to Christ Community Church. Thank you for your patience in this.
- Volunteer Opportunities - If you are looking for a way to connect with others and lend a hand, we continue to have are several opportunities within our weekly Sunday service. If you would like to learn about helping with sound, media, setup, hospitality or assisting in kid’s classes, please speak to Andrew Moon or George Hansen after the service.
Additionally, should you have any questions or have any feedback regarding the church or this new season of ministry, PLEASE do not hesitate to reach out to one of us. We are glad to sit down with you and get to know each of you better as we follow Christ together.
With our love in the Lord Jesus,
