Dear Church of the Redeemer Family and Friends:
A new year is often a time of renewal and re-commitment. This past year we celebrated many things proclaiming the Word and the blessing of God for the future while beginning the 55th year of ministry.
In addition, at the end of December we celebrated the Advent Season through music, drama, children, and the Word. Many people participated through our various outreach programs as we were able to bless many children from our community and local school in keeping with our theme of, “Redeeming the Community through Service and Love.”
Furthermore we completed another missions-focused ministry year supporting and hosting those in the global field. At the same time, we continued to support local mission work with our community based events, prison visits, homeless feedings, Sunday School in the Park evangelism, child evangelism, Mecado Support Ministry, and others. Please consider joining others who will pledge to give a monthly offering of $20 or $10 toward our missionary and evangelism efforts.
Finally, on Sunday January 31st at 1:00pm we will be holding our Annual Business meeting. You are invited to participate in hearing additional information of the church and the various ministries that seek to draw and develop people in the love of Jesus. In addition, the membership will be electing four Church Board members to serve a two year term. Your participation is important in the continued development of the ministry.
We begin a new partnership with Kenmore Elementary of Baldwin Park Unified School District, Redeeming Time, with an after school tutoring program sponsored by a generous grant. There are also projects such as our playground, pre-school, and others that continue to be in consideration and pursuing development.
Please contact the church office for additional information. May the Lord Bless you and keep you. May He cause His face to shine upon you and give you peace.
In His name,
Paul A. Flores, Ph.D.
Church of the Redeemer
