Planning a Visit to Redeemer
The best way to learn about Redeemer is to visit. And to be honest, you really won't be able to get to know the church in just one visit. We think you should plan to visit at least 3-4 times. Depending on your background, there may be different things that are unfamiliar to you. The first time you visit, these will be the only things you notice or focus on. We'd love for you to take the time to get to know some of us personally and learn about how we worship. We welcome your questions about why we do what we do and try to make a point of explaining different parts of our worship each week.
We have started meeting for worship on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. at the CAC (Cultural Activities Center) right off I-35 on the north side of Temple.
What to Expect
Q. How do people dress?
A. You will probably see a range of dress. There is no uniform. There is no dress code. We don't believe we make ourselves acceptable to God by what we wear. We can only be accepted because Jesus clothes us in His righteousness. Worship is a special time when God meets with His people. People dress differently for special celebrations and events. Expect to see a range from more casual to more formal and everything in between. We hope you'll see that we spend a lot more time focusing on what Jesus provides for us to wear than on whatever clothes we happen to have on.
Q. What should I do when I get there?
A. As you enter through the front doors of the CAC you will see signs for Redeemer. Go to your left and you will see our Welcome Table where we will greet you, give you a name tag, and answer any questions you may have. If you have children 3 months - 3 years old you can drop them off in the nursery just down the hall. Otherwise, you can enter the auditorium where we hold our worship services. You will also want to pick up a bulletin as everything you will need to participate in the worship service is printed in it. Bibles are also available on the table outside the auditorium for your use.
Q. What about my children?
A. We currently provide childcare during our worship services in a clean, well-staffed nursery for children ages 3 months thru 3 years old, located on the second floor. During the sermon, children age 4 through the end of kindergarten may attend Training in the Pews. Volunteers will escort children out of the worship service, and return them after the sermon. Children of all ages are always welcome in the worship service.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions - email@example.com or 254-760-4246
There will also be many other opportunities to explore our community and get to know us. We believe the Church is a joyful community awaiting a great celebration with her Redeemer King. Jesus was always at parties and we think we should have a lot of parties as well!
