Worship Playlist January 17 2021

Hello Church!
We wanted to offer a brief update in light of Premier Ford’s announcement yesterday that there would be increased restrictions and an expansion of the lockdown through to February 10.

Here is a quick summary of how things will look for the next few weeks here at Redeemer:

  1. All staff will work from home whenever possible.
  2. We are cancelling all mid-week ministries until further notice. Of course we hope to open things up after February 10 if the lockdown is lifted.
  3. The church building is closed to the public for the duration of the lockdown. That means you should not just drop by and expect anyone to be at the building.
  4. Sunday services will continue to be offered online through our normal channels (accessed through our website, Facebook page, etc.)

As always, we can be reached as a staff/leadership through email and our personal contact info. Reach out to any of the team with questions, comments, etc.

As regards your regular giving/offerings to the church, you can continue to give using the various ways you have been giving since the start of the COVID19 pandemic last Spring (i.e. online or mail in, etc.).

I know how difficult these restrictions are on us, we are all suffering from fatigue and frustration. Let us hold fast to Jesus, our Great High Priest who knows what we are all going through. Let us remember to pray and care for one another, and bearing each others’ burdens wherever possible.

In Christ, Pastor Carl

Sunday Services During Lockdown

We will be hosting live Sunday Services online through our Facebook page and Website. We are permitted to have 10 people in the building to offer services, and so the staff and worship team will be in on Sunday to run through a live service at 10am – just like we have been offering
 
In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus is laying the foundation for his followers, plainly telling us what it means to be a Christian – how we are to think and act. It is a sort of “Christian manifesto”, and more broadly speaking, the Sermon shows us what it means to be human. In this series, we will look at Jesus’ words in Matthew 5 in hopes of seeing what it means for Redeemer to be the church that God desires it to be in our region and world.
 

JOIN US ONLINE ON SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 17, as Pastor Carl brings us the next sermon entitled “What We Experience” from Matthew 5:10-12 in the “Sermon on the Mount – Being Human” series.  In this series, we will look at Jesus’ words in Matthew 5 in hopes of seeing what it means for Redeemer to be the church that God desires it to be in our region and world.
**Download Pastor Carl’s Sermon Study Guide here!**

Join us at 10:00 am LIVE on Facebook as we learn and grow together! The service will also be posted to our website later in the day if you are unable to join the live-stream.

Hello Church!
I have been asked about what sort of Bible Reading Plans I use, and I would recommend for people wanting to commit to regular reading of God’s Word in 2021. Below I have a list of just a few options that I think are pretty good, and some comments for each.

In some ways it doesn’t much matter which plan you settle on, the biggest challenge you will face is discipline. The habit of reading the Bible regularly is like any other habit – it is hard to sustain. If at all possible, I always encourage people “read together”, or “don’t read alone”. Gather with a group or a friend/spouse every day or week and read together and talk about it. If you are part of a life group that meets online during the pandemic, then read the Bible together.

Whatever you decide to do, be sure to soak your reading in a good deal of prayer!

I am hoping to have some news soon about some Bible Studies that I will be leading/providing to help people to not only spend time in the Word, but to study it deeply. Stay tuned for that!

Here are my top 5 suggestions for Bible Reading Plans for 2021 (though there are many more!)

Ligonier is a great organization committed to Scriptural authority. They are rooted in the Reformed tradition and tend to (rightly) emphasize the “solas” of the Reformation. This link will introduce you to a number of Bible reading plans for 2021 – there are so many plans that I can’t even summarize them! Check them out for yourself!

This is a Great plan! It will guide you through every word of the Bible, which is good. It also tries to follow things chronologically, which means that you will encounter psalms pressed into David’s life (i.e., in Samuel/Chronicles/Kings). I like that it is a 5-Day plan too since for many people a 7-day plan is daunting.

This one is a little more daunting because it is basically a 7 day/week plan, but it offers what only the Bible Project can offer – accompanying videos that help you understand what you are reading. The videos are generally very good and even provide a good medium for including kids in on the readings.

 This app is really good. To get the most from this app you will need to pay for it, sorry! But it has not only reading plans, but it is audio so you can have your daily passages read to you if you’d like! There are loads of cool features that make it easy to have the Word in your head all day. If you like getting your reading in through audio, or spend time in the car, at the gym, or doing work around the house, then perhaps this is right for you.

In Christ, Pastor Carl
