What to expect
It can be hard to walk into a room of people you don’t know. We understand. But we are a friendly community and want you to feel welcome.
There is no dress code so wear whatever is comfortable. People wear everything from shorts to suits.
Redeemer bursts with children and we welcome even more. We have nursery care for infants through three-year-olds during the entire worship service, and special worship and teaching for kids up to 5th grade during the sermon. We also offer Sunday School for all ages during our Middle Hour at 10:10 am.
When we sing together, we draw from a wide range of musical expressions. A single service can include lyrics and music written hundreds of years ago as well as lyrics and music written last year. During the course of the service there will be times of silence and reverence, but also joy and passion. The sermons dive into Biblical passages to uncover truths that revolutionize our everyday lives. Each week following the sermon we celebrate the Eucharist.
We craft our service so that it encourages participation, but it’s fine if you want to sit back and observe.

You’ll be casually greeted by a few folks but not singled out. We understand that it can be hard to visit a new church. You are welcome to slip in and out anonymously, but we also give you the opportunity to fill out an information request card or meet the pastor after the worship service.
Absolutely not. While we are thoughtful about what we believe and strive to understand God more fully, we are a community that welcomes the mutual maturing that happens when we disagree and wrestle through important issues together. Even if this is your first time connecting with a church in years, or your first time ever, you are welcome at Redeemer.
