Staying Connected

Would you like to assist our elders in keeping in touch with our member families by phone during this virus shut-down?  If so, contact our Connections Coordinator, Kay via email or phone (760-431-8990 x202) as soon as possible. During this time of social distancing, it is even more important that we stay connected as the Body of Christ.  



Easter Lilies

We will be purchasing lilies for the worship service on April 12th to decorate the sanctuary. If you wish to donate to help defray the cost, you can do so HERE (or you can add it to your general offering HERE). They are $8.00 each. We may be sheltered in our homes, but Christ is risen, He is risen indeed! We look forward to celebrating Easter with you!



Stewardship Minute

Dear Redeemer by the Sea Family:

As you all know, we are not holding Sunday services in our church. Pastor is streaming church services until further notice.

During our Sunday services, we always have an offering plate passed by the ushers. We can’t do that when we are streaming services. Therefore, we ask that you continue your donations via:
1. Online giving (credit card or bank)
2. One time or recurring electronic deposit from your bank (contact the office)
3. One time or recurring credit card donation (contact the office
3. US Postal Mail (6600 Black Rail Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92011)

We thank you in advance for your understanding and generosity. Please email rachelle@redeemerbythesea.org if you have questions on any of these options.
Although we do not have Sunday services, we still have expenses to meet.
Thank you for your contributions and for your generosity.

Please stay healthy by adhering to the government’s guidelines and we will be together again soon.

The Summit – 4th-6th Grade – POSTPONED

Join other 4th – 6th grade students from around the area on April 25th from 9am – 3pm at Crean Lutheran High School.  The Summit will be filled with active learning, fun, meaningful games and activities, singing, as well as service opportunities for everyone to engage in.
 
“This Little Light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!” This is one of the first songs that we teach our children, yet as children get older the world will try to blow out that light with self doubt, guilt and worldly struggles. But, Jesus continues to strengthen us and shine through us! Each child has been given gifts that God will use to point people to Him as long as they aren’t afraid to use them. We hope that this day will encourage all who attend The Summit to not be afraid to use their gifts, because when we Shine for Jesus we are in His will.
 
Registration is $55. Register HERE! Contact Rhonda@RedeemerbytheSea.org with any questions
