Easter RECAP: Our FIRST services at Redemption Church!

We want to thank all of you who joined us praying for our Easter services this past Sunday morning in Delray Beach. It was such an incredible weekend, and we were so glad to have all of you caring and praying for us and those who came! 

We were very blessed to have people from our community here in Delray Beach join us to celebrate the life of Jesus. We had friends from the area, visitors from out of town, people on vacation, and local neighbors who had seen our signs in the park. One woman who joined us had been invited when we went door to door in the neighborhood! We were so glad to see both faces of people we recognized and some that we did not. We made some new friends and our hearts are very full.

We arrived at the community center at about 7am, and we began setting up for our services to be ready at 9am. Our first service was smaller, but it was at this service that the Lord spoke to one man who came and he accepted Jesus as his Savior! We are so excited to see God working, and having this man respond to the Gospel message was very moving and exciting for us! After the first service was done, we had a short break before our second service to head out into the local park to invite people to join us at 11am. Our second service had more people, and looking out into the group that had gathered during worship just brought smiles to our faces. So beautiful to see the fruit of all God has been doing in us and for us this past year!

All of our volunteers were AWESOME!!! They worked very hard to put everything together and tear down with us. We had amazing Sunday School teachers and helpers, and even though there weren’t many children in attendance, those that came were blessed! And now we have all the leftover craft supplies to use on Thursday nights! :)

Our Thursday evening services began THIS WEEK on April 12th down at the community center, and we are praying that God continues to reach people in Delray and draws them close to Him. We even saw another person decide to follow Jesus for the first time yesterday night and we are so thrilled that God's Word is going forth and bearing fruit in people's lives already. We are continuing to invite and spread the word about Redemption Church now that we will have a public location to be meeting down at Veteran’s Park Community Center. The services will run from 7pm to 8:30pm with children’s classes always provided.

Just wanted to share our excitement and PRAISE to God for doing such amazing things here at Redemption Church. We are continuing to walk in faith and hope in all He has called us to.

Be blessed,
Daniel and Laura

Sailing on a ship (cover)

Wanted to share a song that we have been playing lately. :) It's called "Sailing on a Ship," by Phil Wickham. It's one of my favorite songs that we sing--one reason being that the story behind it is from "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader." I have been reading the Chronicles of Narnia this year, and have had this song in my mind the whole time. It's a beautiful song, and we hope you enjoy it. -Laura
