I trust you are digging into God's Word for spiritual stability to Stand Firm in The Lord and praying through the Prayer Plan sent to you this week. As you know, there are no substitutes for Scripture's call to gather together as a local assembly of Christ-followers. However, we want to press on the best we can until we see one another face to face and worship our sovereign God.
Tomorrow, Sunday, March 22, Steve will record video and audio of me delivering the sermon to our empty Worship Center and add them to our website for you. Our goal is to have the recording uploaded by noon.
Next Sunday, March 29, our goal is to go live for you at 10:30 AM.
In the meantime, be encouraged and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5–6, ESV)
Grace and Peace,

In accordance with government recommendations we are suspending all ministry gatherings at Redeeming Grace Church until the restrictions are lifted. We are working out a plan for Sunday morning virtual worship and will post more information as it becomes available.
In these uncertain times, seek the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Let each of us meditate upon the Word of God, the implications of the gospel, be strengthened in faith, on purpose in prayer, and seek to serve others selflessly.
"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete lacking nothing." James 1:2-4 ESV

Dear Faith Family,
“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:4–7 (ESV)
Thank you for your patience with us as we try to get a handle on the ever-changing situation around the COVID-19 Coronavirus. As of this afternoon, the state and local authorities have not required churches to cancel gatherings.
Our Sunday School Classes will continue at 9:00am.
Our gathered worship service will still continue at 10:30am with Children’s Ministry.
- Our doors will be open if you choose to attend the service.
- However, we encourage anyone with a compromised immune system to know that we understand your need to remain at home.
- If you have any symptoms of illness, please remain at home to protect yourself and others.
- If you believe it is wise for you to remain at home, please know that we understand.
- As a precaution we will be skipping the meet and greet portion of our service.
- Out of an abundance of caution and a sincere desire to love our neighbors, please abstain from hugging and shaking hands.
- We do not want volunteers to feel pressured to come because they are scheduled to serve. If you are unable to serve, please seek a replacement and inform your overseer.
If you must remain at home, we encourage you to listen to the sermon on our website. The sermon audio should be available by 3:00 p.m.
We trust the preaching of God’s Word will encourage and strengthen you in Christ.
Please reach out if you are in need. We are praying for you all.
2 Timothy 1:7 tells us, "...for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control."
Remember dear friends, the LORD is not troubled by the Coronavirus. We trust in his sovereignty and in his goodness now as always.
