Homeless Service Opportunity

Lots Life on the Streets.jpg

Join Hallie and Josh Cooper for a Neighborhood Parish service opportunity in Costa Mesa as they, together with a group of other Redeemer members, provide a breakfast for the homeless in partnership with an organization called LOTS (Living on the Streets). Here are the details from Hallie:

Please join Josh and I as we continue our monthly goal to serve our neighbors and community as we move forward into 2019. I pray these opportunities stir up a desire to serve within the church as well as in our families.  Whether that be at one of our monthly community outreaches or in other unique areas God may be leading you in. 

We would love for you to join us at: The Crossing Church DATE: Saturday, Feb 2nd and Saturday, March 2nd TIME: 7:30 am ADDRESS: 2115 Newport Blvd., Costa Mesa, CA 92627. 

Our group will be providing the meal that will be feeding a minimum of 100 men, women and children. We also have the unique opportunity to help prepare and serve the food to this community and that's where we NEED YOU! Children are welcome. 

LOTS provides showers, meals, recovery meetings, clothes and washers and dryers for the individuals who seek any or all of these services EACH SATURDAY! I have been encouraged by what they do and love being a part of a little piece of the project when we go. 

Other ways you may serve for both of these outreaches:
1. Donate any clothes and shoes ( any and all sizes )  2. Donate liquid laundry detergent. 3. Donate hygiene toiletries (ex. deodorant, shampoo, tooth brush, tooth paste) 4. Donate funds to go towards breakfast for Feb 2nd and March 2nd. 

Please feel free to email or call me with any questions. I love you all and hope to see you there!  halliencooper@gmail.com / 949-310-9728

Call for Children's Ministry Volunteers

Dear families, we are so excited to be starting a new year with each of you! As we look to finish up our 2019 children's ministry schedule, we have many available opportunities remaining for new volunteers and jr. high and high school students to assist in our sermon time classes. Your presence as an assistant not only helps ensure the safety of our children and teachers, but it also speaks loud messages of worth, love, significance, and grace into the lives of our children. The assistant commitment is simply to be present for one, two or three months of the year to assist the lead teacher in either the preschool/kindergarten, 1st-3rd grade, or 4th-5th grade class. There is absolutely no prep work required for our assistants and you are only asked to be out of the service during the 25 minute sermon time. You will receive a reminder email prior to your weeks of assisting, followed by an email each week with the link to the sermon so that you may listen at home. Thank you for considering this! Your participation is priceless and we are praying for each of you. Please contact Amanda Knox to sign up or inquire,  amandak@redeemeroc.org

Gottman Marriage Retreat Workshop Report

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.

Thank You to Josh Cooper

Josh Cooper.jpg

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 (josh@cooperlife.co or halliencooper@gmail.com)

In Christ,

Pastor Adam Feichtmann
