Redeemer Together

To bring us together while we’re apart – your Redeemer family wants to stay connected and see what you are up to. Share a photo or video each week and we’ll compile to present at the virtual Sunday Services. For every photo and entry you send, Redeemer will donate $5 to International Justice Mission to fight human trafficking.

  • Week 1: Together. Show us a photo of how your family is staying connected. From fishing to board games, heading the beach or FaceTiming. Due Aug 21.
  • Week 2: Worship. Show us how you’re worshiping … watching on Facebook with your coffee or tuning in on the couch with your family. Due. Aug 28.
  • Week 3: Blessings. Show us any of your blessings – from a book to enjoy or people you love. Due Sept 4.
  • Week 4: Hope. Show us what you are looking forward to – from a budding flower to learning a new skill in the kitchen. Due Sept 11.

How to submit:
1. Social media (Facebook or Instagram). Tag Redeemer by the Sea and use hashtag #RedeemerbytheSea in the caption.
2. Comment on Redeemer by the Sea’s Facebook post with your photo and caption.
3. Email your photo and caption to evangelism@redeemerbythesea.org. Contact Terra for more information!

Outdoor Communion Service – Sunday, 8/16

Our next Outdoor Communion Service will be THIS SUNDAY, August 16th at 10am.  Join us outdoors on the church patio.  We will be observing social distancing and wearing masks.   A limited amount of seating will be available.  (You may wish to bring your own seating).  We will still provide our regular recorded worship service with music, readings, message and prayers at rbts.online.churchYouTube and Facebook.  You may watch the service before or after coming to the church for Communion. Our outdoor service will have invocation, confession/absolution, Scripture, Creed, Lord’s Prayer and the Words of Institution. Then you will be ushered into the church by individual families to receive “no-contact” socially-distant Communion.  You may visit with others outside before and after the service.  Pastor Augie will also be available for individual prayer upon request.

Redeemer Reads

Congratulations to Redeemer’s Kindergarten students who each read 100 books! Students did a drive through with our teachers, Miss Malloy and Miss Rhonda presenting their medals to them, and also Pastor Augie to give each of them a gift bag from the church which included an Arch book about the Story of Easter for them to read. Way to go, Kindergartners!
