We are overwhelmed by the incredible day we had last Sunday, and we want to THANK you so much for your prayers and love as we had our second EASTER as Redemption Church!
Highlights from Easter, 2013:
-We had 4 people accept Jesus as their Savior for the very first time!!! One of these was a friend's father who was here visiting from New Jersey. It was a beautiful gift to share this special day with our new brothers and sisters in the Lord!
-We had 18 adults attend our first service and 57 adults attend our second service! Many of these were believers, and many were not. It was incredible to see the Lord bring friends and strangers to hear and celebrate the Good News with us!
-We had approximately 100 people show up for our Easter Egg Hunt between services!!! We were blown away at all the families that responded to our door hangers and invitations and showed up with Easter baskets in hand! Some stayed for our service and many did not, but we were able to share the love of Jesus with many new people in our community. No glitches! It was an awesome time!
-Our team was AWESOME!!! Serving together as a body was a very special and meaningful way to spend Easter together. God's Spirit was with us and the excitement was tangible as we got to see some of the fruit of our labor.
-Redemption Kids was GREAT! We had a combined effort of 10 adults serving in our childrens' ministry and welcomed 20 kids into our kids' classes on Sunday! It was a fun morning for all the kids, and they got to hear the message of God's love for them from wonderful and gifted teachers.
-We had MANY people fill out a card to join a community group! We are VERY excited to see the people the Lord is bringing to Redemption Church to serve and grow together with us!
-FINALLY, God was glorified in our gathering together. We got to worship, fellowship, give Him praise and thanks for all He has done for US!
Praise God for all He is doing and His faithfulness to use us and bring glory to His good name. We love you all and continue to lift you up in our prayers also. Please pray for those who responded to the Gospel this week to be growing and plugged in! We are continuing to reach out to many of those who came on Sunday and are praying for continued relationships and growth.
