In 2018 our Redeemer church family will be learning and encouraging the memorization of The New City Catechism, which comprises only 52 questions and answers (as opposed to Heidelberg’s 129 or Westminster Shorter’s 107). There is, therefore, only one question and answer for each week of the year, making it simple to fit into church calendars and achievable for people with demanding schedules. Our Christian-education classes will incorporate the learning of these questions and answers into our current curriculum. We’ll also incorporate these questions and answers into the worship service each Sunday. We’ll provide more details as January 2018 unfolds, but there’s plenty of information about the questions, reasons for catechizing, explanations for a new catechism, links to the devotional book and mobile apps, and more at their website.
Make plans to join us Sunday, December 24 for our special Christmas Eve candlelight service at 6 pm in our sanctuary at 43 Wentworth St. in downtown Charleston, SC. Our worship service is open to the public! We look forward to celebrating the birth of our Savior with you and your family. Children of all ages are welcome to participate in this service; our nurseries will be open for parents to use, but we will not have any volunteers or staff working that evening.
Since we spent over four years in our beloved Deuteronomy sermon series at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, we’ve had lots of babies born–babies we’ve dubbed “Deuteronomy Babies.” On our last Sunday in Deuteronomy, we attempted a picture with Pastor Craig and all the babies. It was chaotic to say the least!
