  • Christian Education

    We hold a lunch-time bible study at the church, every Thursday at 11:30, led by Pastor Dave. This includes discussion of the upcoming sermon passage.


    Kenny & Rebecca Koehler will begin hosting a study in their home on August 14th, on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month, 5:00-6:00pm. They will use curriculum from Ligonier Ministries (the ministry responsible for the TableTalk devotional that is available through Redeemer, and they have a way of getting to the heart of scripture that's refreshingly clear, particularly in today's culture). There are three 6-part series titled "The Necessity of Reforming the Church" (Dr. Robert Godfrey), "The Holiness of God" (Dr. R.C. Sproul), and "The God We Worship" (Dr. R.C. Sproul) and the curriculum should take us to summer 2023. Each session begins with a 30 min. video lesson and then there will be focused discussion. This study is open to adults and any youth who can appropriately engage with the material and discussion. Please contact Kenny Koehler if you are interested. Class size is limited. 


    Our Sunday morning Christian education opportunities (9:15am - 10:15am) are as follows. The Fall term runs August 14 - December 18 (no class on 9/5 or 11/27):


    ADULTS & YOUTH:


    Created & Called [Dawn Whitestone & John Szydlowski] - In the Created and Called class, we explore our God-given Identity, Purpose and Mission. Then, we look at how to live it out within the Body of Christ and in our community. [main room of ministry house]


    Church History [Rich Cali] - A study of the birth and growth of the early Christian church from c. 100-500 A.D. Open to adults and high school youth. [youth garage]


    Romans [Lew Barger] - A comprehensive walk through the book of Romans. [classroom just outside of sanctuary]


    Redeemer 101 [Robin Young] - What is your church’s vision? What exactly does Redeemer believe? How is your church structured? What does it mean to become a member? If these are some of the questions you have been asking yourself or others about Redeemer, then we encourage you to attend our 101 class! Redeemer 101 is for anyone who would like to be introduced to Redeemer's VISION, THEOLOGY & POLITY, and VOWS that one takes to become a member. While this class is designed to be a helpful introduction for all, if you are interested in becoming a member, then you need to plan to attend. [area just outside of the nursery]


    CHILDREN:


    Elementary [Hannah Hough, Elementary Education Director, and a team of add'l teachers & helpers] - Classical curriculum including hymns and scripture memorization. [2 classrooms: to the left of the doors facing the playground & to the left of the restrooms]


    Middle School [Josh Hough] - The Old Testament survey provides the historical setting out of which Christianity and the New Testament emerged. This class will study how God was moving among the people of Israel to bring forth the Messiah, who would provide redemption for His chosen people. [classroom to the left of the lobby TV]


    Nursery [Missy Graham, Nursery Coordinator, and a rotation of qualified volunteers] - Provided for ages 3 and under. The vision of our nursery ministry is to plant seeds of love, hope, faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ in the hearts of little ones through the example of living models of the truth of God's Word. (Matt. 18:4-5; Prov. 22:6) [nursery]

  • women's ministry

    • The women's ministry seeks to authentically connect our women with Christ and one another by teaching and demonstrating biblical womanhood through the scriptures, and by following our helper design to come alongside our church leaders in sharing the good news of Christ. We work with one another in supporting various local ministries.  In addition to these outreach opportunities, we also periodically host other women's events such as luncheons, baby showers, etc.  These events focus on fellowship, personal connection, and connection with scripture. We also have several "Femaleship" (female fellowship) dinners at various restaurants in the area throughout the year. Click the calendar link above for specific event dates.

Our firepit meetings start in October when the weather cools down and end in March with a NCAA March Madness watch party.  We meet every second Thursday at 7:00pm at the firepit behind Redeemer during those months.
    • Samson Society - A fellowship of Christian men who are serious about authenticity, community, humility & recovery.  Serious, not grave.  Meets weekly on Mondays at Redeemer, 6:00pm.
