Lectures & Studies
Engaging classes on subjects that matter. In the fall, winter, and spring we offer lectures and classes during out middle hour (10:10-10:50 am) that train the Redeemer community, adults and children, in the content, history, and practice of their faith. This includes the study of the Bible, theology, and life skills (marriage, parenting, finances, peacemaking, etc.)
Middle Hour Schedule
Sundays, 10:10-10:50 am
Middle Hour Presentations
Jan 14 | Stories of Renewal and Prayer
We are excited to hear stories of renewal from two of our own church member families: The Fuscos and the Coopers. Pastor David will lead a Q&A with each family for them to share how God has been working his plan to “renew all things” in and through their lives. Following the Q&A there will be a guided time of prayer for mission and renewal in our lives and the lives of our neighbors.
Jan 21 | No Middle Hour Classes
The town hall meeting to present the budget & vision for 2018 was originally scheduled on this date. The meeting has been rescheduled for Feb 25th. Therefore, middle hour classes for our youth and children will not meet on this date. However, all are encouraged to stay after the first service, or come early for the second service to enjoy a time of fellowship.

Neighborhood Parish Partner Spotlights
At Redeemer we love Orange County and count it a joy to serve the communities where we live. Redeemer is organized into neighborhood groups called parishes. Parishes are designed to help us connect with the Redeemer people we live close to and to empower our local Redeemer communities to contribute to the health of our cities.
Join us as we spotlight a few local organizations who embody what it means to love and serve their neighborhood. Our hope is to encourage people who live in that neighborhood to get connected to the organization, or if you live in another part of Orange County to be inspired get connected to a similar organization in your neighborhood.
