COMMUNITY THANKSGIVING SERVICE: Redeemer’s choir is participating again this year at the Community Thanksgiving Service hosted at Second Presbyterian Church (342 Meeting St., 29403) on Tuesday, November 22 at 7 pm. Churches of many denominations and backgrounds come together each year in this blended service focused on thanksgiving and community.
THANKSGIVING: Do you have an extra spot at your Thanksgiving dinner table? Do you need a place to go for Thanksgiving dinner? Contact Gray Morgan to be matched up.
ADVENT: Our adult classes will continue with their studies of the Gospel of John during the Advent season. The Youth classes (both middle and high school) will have a special Advent focus for the next four weeks. Our Redeemer Kids will be rehearsing their songs and such during the Christian-education hour at 9:15 am on Sundays during Advent for their Christmas Celebration. Please make every effort to have your preschool and elementary children present for these rehearsals. They are very excited to share the birth of Jesus with the Redeemer family at their Christmas Celebration on Sunday evening, December 11.
PARENTS’ NIGHT OUT: Need to do a little shopping without the kids? Check out details for our Parents’ Night Out event at the church on Saturday, December 3 from 5-8:30 pm.
REDEEMER KIDS CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION: Redeemer Kids will tell the story of Jesus’ birth through Scripture, songs, and sets on Sunday, December 11 at 5:30 pm.
CHRISTMAS PARTY AND TALENT SHOW: We’re movin’ on up to the East Side! Since our congregation has grown so much in the past two years and we don’t all fit in our Fellowship Hall, we’re having our annual Christmas party and talent show in The Cedar Room at The Cigar Factory (701 East Bay St., 29403) on Sunday, December 18 at 6 pm. With an abundance of space, we’re planning a special kids’ section with special tables, decor, and activities for them. Of course we’ll have the talent show: Both kids and adults are encouraged to perform! We’ll have a piano on site, and Fred is happy to accompany any singers if needed (email Fred Hudson to arrange his help). And be sure to email Craig to be added to the program for the evening if you’re interested in sharing your talents! New this year, we’re encouraging each community group to perform–serious or funny, skits or songs, whatever your group would like to perform! For dinner we’ll do finger foods, and we’ll need plenty of them! Bring multiple dishes to share, and get some ideas from this potluck signup sheet or add your own. We’re excited to celebrate with our growing church family!
SPECIAL SERVICES: We’ll have a Christmas Eve service on Saturday, December 24 at 6 pm. We’ll have a morning worship service on Sunday, December 25 and on Sunday, January 1 at a special time of 11 am but no Christian-education classes and no Children’s Worship during the sermon. While our nurseries will be open and available for parents to use, we will not have anyone slated to serve in the nurseries for both the Christmas Eve and Christmas morning services. All children are welcome in these worship services! Our usual nurseries will resume for Sunday, January 1.
