Dear Redeemer Family:
Here are some things I want to share with you.
1. Yesterday afternoon I spent three hours praying for all of you who sent me prayer requests. What an honor and privilege it is to do this! I printed out all the requests and took them with me. I made several notes next to the requests as I was praying. I've decided to continue to pray over these all this week. I will be contacting some of you where I feel God gave me some specific things which will, hopefully, strengthen and encourage you.
2. THIS COMING SUNDAY MORNING AT REDEEMER my friend Bruce Borquist will preach. Bruce and his wife Ann are American Baptist missionaries (like Jeff and Annie Dieselberg are). Bruce is the one who invited me to speak in Brazil a year ago. I am so thankful for Bruce and Ann. They have a vast, powerful ministry to many countries of the world. We will be privileged to hear Bruce speak to us on "The Heart of a Missionary."
3. 6 SUNDAYS ON THE REAL JESUS: Beginning Nov. 22, and through all of December, we're taking a break from the book of Revelation and I'll be giving 6 sermons on everything I know about Jesus. My vision is: Redeemer is a Jesus-literate church!
4. CHILI LUNCHEON AND COOK-OFF. Sunday, Dec. 6, following worship.
5. Please look in our lobby for the Christmas Child Project and the Christmas Tree of Giving.
6. BUY A CHAIR OR TABLE FOR OUR NEW BUILDING ADDITION. There is a display of sample classroom furniture for the new addition in the narthex by the coat racks. If you would like to donate a chair or table for a classroom, you can specify "Classroom furniture" on your giving envelope, along with the amount.
Chairs are $25 and tables are $62.
7. FOCUS ON MARRIAGES: Linda and I invite all marital couples to join us for three Sunday nights focusing on strengthening our marriages. January 17-24-31. 6-8 PM. We are looking at materials (and perhaps some very good dvds) that will help us. More information TBA.
8. INNER HEALING CLASS: I will be teaching an 8-week class on Inner Healing during the months of February and March. Topics will include: Our Need of Inner Healing; The Biblical Promise of Inner Healing; Overcoming Shame; Self-forgiveness; Healing of Damaged Emotions; Healing of Memories. Breaking into more freedom! More details and sign-up as we approach the beginning date. Sunday nights, 6-7:30 PM.
9. REDEEMER BASKETBALL LEAGUE. Sign up is Sat. morning, Dec. 5.
10. SUMMER GREEN LAKE CONFERENCE (looking way ahead): Robby Dawkins and Bob Hazlett. June 26- July 1. For details and registration go to the HSRM Home Page.
Plus our ongoing Royal rangers Ministry, Youth Ministry, and more...
And... the Grand Opening of our new Children's Facility... coming soon!
Blessings to you all this day.
We are a praying church,
