Worship at Redeemer
In the summer during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are meeting on Zoom at 10:30. If you would like an invitation please contact George Baughan at [email protected] for an invitation.
When we return to our regular Sunday morning worship schedule, there will be communion service without music at 7:45 am and 10:30 am service with music and communion.
Children are in Sunday School during the first part of the 10:30 service and come in right before communion to join their families for the remainder of the service.
Christian Education at Redeemer
Adult Forum - 9:00 am
When we meet again in person, we have a class for adults that meets between the services in the parish hall to apply Bible study to contemporary issues.
Sunday School - 10:15
Sunday School at Redeemer starts when parents think their children are ready for group instruction. We begin with an opening that usually includes a puppet play or a Bible story.
Children then break into grade level classes:
Pre K- First Grade
Primary (Grades 2-4)
Pre-Confirmation (Grades 5-8)
At the offertory hymn, children come into the service and sit or kneel at the altar rail and participate in the communion service. They then join their families when they come to the altar.
On the fourth Sunday of the month, the service is led by the youth of Redeemer who act as ushers, lay readers, intercessors, and chalice bearers. The gospel is frequently acted out as a puppet play.
