Transforming Churches Network (TCN)
While we are a very friendly and welcoming church, is there more we can do to reach out and connect with our community? The answer to that and any question about
Improvement is always, yes! We could do better.
How can you help? Since God has called his people to be “doers of His word”, pray to discover how He wants you to be a part of the outreach planning and information gathering.
Remember, God is passionate about you! So passionate that He sent His only Son to rescue us from our own self destruction.
In turn, He has called each of us to passionately seek out and save our own lost neighbors. God is calling all “people of passion” to open wide the doors of Redeemer, so that our neighbors can be rescued, too!

The book of James, half-brother of Jesus, a letter to the church is written to Jewish believers in his day, but the content of the letter is timeless and timely. James writes that we should turn to God in our trials and live our faith in God's Word. He casts an unfavorable eye on the ways of the world, and calls on believers favoritism in the church and an unhealthy view of money. Finally, he calls all believers to pursue Jesus’s Grace and Mercy with passion.
