This Saturday, April 25 Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, will host another Carolina Concert at 7:30 pm that’s free and open to the public, featuring clarinetist Philip Lipton. Come hear beautiful music in our sanctuary!
For a few weeks in May, Redeemer’s own Olivia Hines (right) will travel with Palmetto Medical Initiative as part of a medical missions trip to Nicaragua, where PMI has a vision for sustainable healthcare clinics by training locals to provide for the area long after the missions trip. Here’s what Olivia’s excited to do:
On this trip I will be able to use the gifts God has given me to help those that hardly ever receive medical care. I felt called to go on this trip after God made some major changes in my life and humbled me to show the meaning of living for Him and using my gifts for His glory.
To help meet her fundraising goal, Olivia is hosting a yard sale this Saturday, April 4 at 8 am at 539 Rutledge Ave. in downtown Charleston, SC. Click for more information about items for sale.
Women from Redeemer Presbyterian Church and other PCA churches in the Palmetto Presbytery gathered for their annual Spring Gathering last Saturday, March 22 at Church Creek Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC. Here are some impressions from Redeemer women about the the morning’s event:
What I loved most about it was the opportunity to fellowship, build bridges with, and encourage other women from our own denomination! –Leslie
It was a great time of gathering with other women in our community that share a joy to learn more about the Word of God. I personally met some new women and was very blessed by their friendliness and encouragement. –Amanda
Mark your calendars for our next women’s fellowship event: A double baby shower of blessings for two dear women from the North Area (Wednesday) Community Group on Friday evening, April 24. Invitations coming soon!
Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, boasted two teams in the Walk for Water this past Saturday, March 22. Some of the “not Downtown CG” Team is shown above prior to the walk.
Some of Redeemer’s second team, the “Downtown Community Group,” is shown above. Between both Redeemer teams, we raised over $800 for Water Missions International!
With nearly 4,000 walkers this year, this 9th Annual event was their biggest yet–and Redeemer’s best participation, too!
Contribute to a Redeemer team or join us in our Walk for Water this Saturday, March 21 downtown beginning at Brittlebank Park. Redeemer has the privilege of supporting a local charity, Charleston’s own Water Missions International! Redeemer has two groups registered to walk, and each team is accepting additional walkers and donations now.
The Downtown Community Group formed the first team (donate or join here), and then threw down the gauntlet to the other community groups. In response another team formed–aptly named “not the Downtown CG” (donate or join here). So pick your side, throw your support behind one (or both) of these Redeemer teams, and donate to a great charity that provides not just clean drinking water to needy communities around the world but also Living Water.

St. Andrew’s Church in Mt. Pleasant presents An Evening with Fernando Ortega. This local concert on Friday, October 10 at 7:30 pm at St. Andrew’s Ministry Center is sure to please! Redeemer regularly sings several of Ortega’s songs including Sing to Jesus and Great Is Thy Faithfulness.
On World Water Day March 22, Redeemer’s team of 13 adults, 2 kids, and 2 dogs joined other teams from around the Lowcountry for Water Missions International‘s 8th annual Walk for Water. (There’s still time to contribute to our team’s goal.) We enjoyed a beautiful spring day, as we walked the streets of downtown Charleston. We carried buckets to simulate the long walk to fetch water that many around the world must take each day.
