Welcome to Redeemer Church
February 8, 2012 by Taraleigh Davis 3 comments
At one of our pre-launch Sunday night meetings in December we were singing a familiar song and floods of memories came over me remembering nights when I had sung that same song flat on my face in a puddle of tears and sorrow. This time, I was standing with arms lifted and a smile on my face. Tears of pain had turned into tears of joy. The memories that used to bring reminders of pain and sorrow now reminded me of God’s goodness and amazing grace. It was just in time ~ our first Sunday was just weeks away...
It was hard for me to communicate how excited and full of faith I was for that first Sunday. How aware I was of God’s kindness in allowing me the privilege of being a part of something like this. How amazed I was that God was using my messy life in this new work.
I am Redeemer Church. I get to be Redeemer Church. I get to do life with the people there. I get to serve alongside my husband and children. I get to help set up chairs, wipe snotty noses, brainstorm outreach ideas, fill in wherever I am needed. I get to pray for people who are hurting, pour my life out, and proclaim the message of hope. A message that changes lives and brings redemption. That is how the gospel changed me. All the people from Redeemer Church come from different backgrounds, but we have the same story to tell ~ the message of our Redeemer sent to rescue us from our sins, mistakes, and failures.
Welcome to Redeemer Church, we hope you like it here.
