SUNDAY WORSHIP AT REDEEMER
A frequent question about a multi-ethnic church like Redeemer is,
“What do your worship services look like?”
This is a good question, since many people would think that the worship styles of a Presbyterian church and of a traditional African-American church would clash. It is our intention, however, that as our membership blends the cultures of our city that our worship services would also blend the worship styles of its people. While holding to a worship that is guided by the Scriptures and focused on the who God is and what He has done in Jesus Christ, we hope to develop an authentic worship style that both honors God as well as expresses the hearts of the community of believers represented in our church. This is Redeemer’s offering of praise and worship that is designed to allow those who visit to be drawn into the presence of the living God and not be distracted by one set of specific cultural distinctives.
In all of our worship services, the expository preaching of the Word of God is held in a prominent place. Along with the preaching of the Word, we recite our historic creeds and confessions, expressing everyone’s need for a Savior and a right relationship with God that can only be found through trusting in the finished work of Jesus Christ. It is our desire that everyone who attends our services would be able to say, “Today, I have been in the presence of God.”
We invite you to come and worship with us this Sunday. Services are at 8:00 and 11:00 a.m. We are confident that you will find many familiar components in the service, preaching that is both practical and challenging for your daily life, and fellow believers who will offer you a warm welcome.
