Welcome to The Redemption Church, and thank you for coming to worship with us today! We are excited to worship in our new space here at National Louis in 2014 and are glad you could join us for service today.
2. Thursday Prayer Meetings (Every Thursday 7:30-9:30pm, National Louis)
Join us as we build our prayer culture at Redemption. Starting next Thursday (3/20), we will meet each Thursday night to pray together as a church. It will be a time of worship, hearing the Word, and especially prayer. Join us starting at 7:30pm right here at National Louis. The Thursday night prayer meeting will replace Friday Night Life.
3. Exodus World Service (March and April)
Exodus is a ministry that helps refugee families become acclimated to their new lives in America (http://www.e-w-s.org/). Get involved in multiple ways:
1. TRC will get involved by setting up a home for the family and gathering a month’s supply of essential household items. We have a sign-up sheet for the supplies to collect for the family at the Welcoming Table (collection will take place on Sunday 3/30).
2. After the initial move-in, we will also continue to meet with the family on a regular basis to acclimate them to their new lives. We also have a sign-up sheet to form a team of people who are interested in meeting the family for a 3 month period once a week for a couple of hours. The deadline for signing up to join the meeting team is March 16, due to paperwork that will need to be filled out. Meetings with the new family with tentatively start in early April.
If you are interested or have questions, please contact David An (firstname.lastname@example.org).
4. Restore Missions Conference (March 28-29)
Mark your calendars for this year’s Restore Missions Conference, which will take place on March 28-29. We are especially excited to have Dr. George Verwer as the main speaker. Dr. Verwer is the founder of Operation Mobilization.
