Thank you for your prayers and support to make the September (Costa Mesa) and October (Fullerton) workshops happen! We had a great turn out, especially with non-Redeemer couples. Here are some stats:
A total of 110 people attended both of the workshops.
Only 48 of the attendees were apart of the Redeemer community.
62 people (56% of the workshop attendees) came because you invited your neighbors, friends, and family to invest in their marriages (plus, a little social media ads on our part)!
Many of the attendees were non-Christians and some of them are very open to visit Redeemer in the coming weeks and months. Please continue to pray for the couples who attended the workshop and for all marriages and families at Redeemer.
Due to the success of the event, be on the look out for similar events and gathers in 2019.
Every Sunday before the worship service at 9:15-9:45AM
Location: Room across from the women’s restroom
Join Redeemer leaders every Sunday to pray for our church, our neighbors, and our world before we gather for worship. We desire to be a congregation intentionally rooted in prayer and this gathering is an opportunity that we offer for our community to pray together. If you would like be specifically prayed over on a Sunday morning, please stick around after the worship service and ask one of the pastors or church leaders.
Dear Redeemer Family and Friends,
Josh Cooper has humbly and faithfully served our church, our youth, and their families over the past six years. As summer recently ended, Josh has just transitioned out of his paid staff position at Redeemer. He started out as Redeemer’s Pastoral Intern and then became our Pastoral Assistant for Youth Ministry. Over the years of working with Josh, he has blessed me as a humble fellow worker of the Gospel, a dedicated youth leader, a great surfing partner, and most of all as a quality and godly friend. It has been an honor to serve the church, the youth, and families alongside of him.
It must also be noted that Josh would not have made such a large impact on our church, youth, and families if it weren’t for his wife Hallie! Hallie has loyally served alongside Josh over all these years and has specifically loved and discipled so many of our youth girls. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say (and Josh would agree) that Hallie really carried our youth ministry for years!
As many of you know, Josh and Hallie welcomed their first child, Taylor, into their family this past spring, and Josh’s personal business has continued to grow. These are two wonderful blessings for their family, but it also meant that back in the spring we needed to start working on a transition plan to hand over the youth ministry to someone else. Brian Scholl came on church staff in May as the Pastoral Intern / Youth Ministry Coordinator, and Josh has done a great job in training him and handing off the youth ministry baton to him over the summer.
Even though Josh will no longer be on staff, we are grateful that he, Hallie, and Taylor will continue to be active church members in our community! So the next time to see either Josh or Hallie at church give them both a hug and thank them for their service to our church and specifically to our youth and families. This Sunday, September 23rd, we will also be inviting Josh and Hallie to the front during the worship service and publicly thanking them for their years of service, so plan to attend if you are able. Feel free also to email Josh or Hallie a thank you note at (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com)

In preparation for the Gottman Marriage Retreat Workshops in Costa Mesa (September 28-29) and Fullerton (October 5-6) we are in need of two Event Logistics Teams to help plan all the details of the workshops. Do you have planning skills, an eye for room decor and layout, hands to stuff gift bags, etc? If so, we would love to have you join one of these planning teams. Each team will meet once in August and probably twice in September. If interested please email Pastor Adam Feichtmann firstname.lastname@example.org.

Redeemer is excited to welcome Danielle Smith as our new Church Administrator!
Kem Erskine who has been our administrator for the past 8 years will be transitioning out of this role effective August 10th, and Danielle will be training and working alongside of Kem until then. Please pray for Danielle and Kem during this transition.
We encourage you to get to know Danielle. Read more about her below and welcome Danielle personally by contacting her at the church:
Danielle grew up in Sydney, Australia, and moved to Northern California to attend San Jose State University. She graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology as she was a competitive swimmer growing up and has always loved being involved with sports. She lives in Newport Beach with her husband Scott and their twin boys. She loves volunteering at her children’s school, going to the beach, and being outside and active with her family.
We are excited to announce that we have new church app available in the the Apple, Google, and Amazon app stores! In the app you will be able to give electronically, listen to the latest sermons, follow our morning and evening daily prayers, be in the loop for our upcoming events, and much more. Download it now.
We are a missionary people, formed by love to love.
We recently commissioned our Fullerton Launch Team by praying for them so they can go forth and establish a new congregation in Fullerton. But this team does not go alone. Even if you don’t plan on attending Redeemer Fullerton, you can still play a critical role in launching the new church in one or more of the following ways:
- Joining the prayer team. We want 100 people to commit to praying regularly for the new church.
- Serving in Fullerton for a season. Would you be willing to join the Fullerton greeting team, set up team, run the sound board, or help in the children’s ministry or nursery for 6 months, 12 months or even longer?
- Serving at Redeemer in Newport Beach. There will be volunteer needs on Sunday morning as our Fullerton members who are currently serving redirect their time and energy to the Fullerton launch. Consider serving on our greeting or set-up teams or helping with children's ministry.
See the link to the sign up form below to let us know how you would like to engage in this mission in Fullerton. Let's do something great together!
