This is a very exciting time at Redeemer! The Lord has been blessed us with a fruitful time worshiping at Fort Bend Baptist Academy. Now, the door has opened for another location that will better serve our people, and we are praising God for His provision. Here are a few reasons why this Sunday, May 6th, will be particularly special:
1. This Sunday, we will celebrate our first baptism at Redeemer! David Hamilton, Jim’s younger brother has professed faith in Jesus Christ and will be baptized this Sunday, Lord willing. Be sure to stay after worship and our fellowship meal, as we will be walking over to the sanctuary for the Baptism.
2. The Elders will be presenting Billy Newhouse as the Senior Pastoral Assistant, a new church staff position at Redeemer.
3. This Sunday we will be kicking off our new members class, called Starting Point. If you are considering membership at Redeemer, be sure to attend this 5-week class that will be overviewing our vision, doctrine and church structure. This class will meet at 9:30AM.
4. There will be a sermon! This week we will be considering 1 Timothy 6:11-16, A Charge to the Pastors. Last week we were intentionally left with the image of the thorny vines of geed and covetousness growing around our hearts and minds, seeking to choke out the Word of God. What can we do? Paul says we must FLEE and FIGHT! What is our motivation for the fight??—the answer is found in verse 12: eternal life! Friend, how is the fight going? Are you unaware of the battle that is raging, the thorns that are growing, the Word that is being choked out of your life?
We would love for you to join us this week as we seek the One who “testified the confession before Pontius Pilate…, the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light.”
May He receive Glory and Eternal Dominion!
