Walking Through the Scriptures (Rector’s Letter for 3/01/21)

Dear Redeemer Family: I have received a lot of positive feedback regarding last Wednesday’s ‘walk through the scriptures’ regarding stewardship, giving, and money. It was a significant blessing and challenge for many who attended. Some commented that it was the best teaching they had heard regarding stewardship in some time. Since many were not able to attend the teaching live, I have recorded it and made it available for any who missed it, or who want to engage again with the…

One way we are helping you do that at Redeemer is by offering a 6-week theological reading group during that season. The…
