Brothers and Sisters,
Our goal as a church is for Missions to be a part of our DNA. It has been a while since we’ve had a Missions focused service at Redeemer, and we’re thankful to have that opportunity to do so this morning. Be patient with us as we seek to build up our focus and emphasis in an area that truly is critical for your church and her goals. We desire that more and more of God’s people come into a relationship with their only Savior through efforts to spread the gospel in Word and Mercy.
We want Missions to affect every ministry in the church. From Children’s Ministry, learning about Paul’s missionary journeys in Back Yard Bible Clubs and planting a seed in their hearts for the value of their part in missions, to our Youth serving a church in Belize in sports outreach and church planting, to our quarterly service events to local missions and mercy efforts right here in the Charlotte area. Indeed there is so much that we are doing already, but we are excited about the vision for where we can take missions in the next several years.
This morning we are blessed and thankful to have Pastor Howard Brown from Christ Central preaching for us from the book of Revelation. He has blessed us in the past by preaching at Redeemer, and we will be challenged and encouraged by his preaching again this morning. Prepare your hearts this morning to be stretched and to worship God in spirit and in truth, and to further consider in what ways you can serve the kingdom yourself in our growth in taking forward the glorious gospel both locally and abroad.
Pastor Darol Timberlake
