This is a beautiful and solemn service that will focus your mind and grip your heart. After singing, silence, and a short meditation on a passage of scripture, we take the Lord’s Supper, prayerfully and seated at tables. For many this is one of the most powerful and rich communion experiences. At the conclusion of the service the communion tables are ceremonially stripped and we leave in silence and darkness. Symbolically this darkness and silence is broken with the shout of “He is risen!” at the opening of our Easter worship the following Sunday.
Our Easter service is a rich celebration of joy, where the despair of death feels before the bursting forth of new life. It is the climax of the Church Calendar and great opportunity to invite friends, family, and neighbors to worship and celebrate with us! After the service all are invited to enjoy some light refreshments in the chapel hall and there will be an Easter egg hunt, bounce houses, and activities for the children on the lawn.
If you are interested in volunteering to help with the Easter celebration contact Danielle Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to invite you to the first joint worship service of several PCA churches in Orange County on Ash Wednesday. New Life Mission Presbyterian Church of Irvine, Trinity Presbyterian Church of Orange, and Redeemer will be gathering together in the Morgan Chapel at Temple Bat Yahm to celebrate our unity in Christ and enter the season of Lent together. Your friends and neighbors are welcome to attend this special evening. No childcare will be provided. Refreshments will be served following the service.
You are invited to join the men of Redeemer for our annual Men’s Retreat. This year we will once again go to Serra Retreat Center, a beautiful sacred space nestled in the hills of Malibu. This Catholic retreat center, home to Franciscan friars, is the perfect venue to rest, be refreshed, and deepen your communion with God and other men. Not to mention, it has stunning ocean views and great surf less than a mile away.
This year we are privileged to have Dr. Kyle Strobel, Associate Professor of Spiritual Theology at Biola University, as our guest speaker for the weekend, teaching on the topic of the Christian Life by Grace Alone.

This year we are going to begin helping our 4th and 5th grade students transition into remaining in the service, which our 5th graders will begin doing at the beginning of the summer. So on four specific Tween Prep Sundays we will invite the 4th and 5th graders to remain in the chapel when the other children are dismissed. They are welcome to sit with their families or together as a class. The first date is December 30, and the remaining dates are February 17, March 31, and May 26. Contact Amanda Knox, email@example.com for more information. Thank you and we look forward to worshiping together with you!

Directly after the Sunday Service
Christmas isn’t just one day! It’s actually a 12-day celebration beginning at sunset on Christmas Eve! How could it not be a multi-day, extravagant and joyous feast when the King of Kings, the Prince of Peace, Creator and Redeemer has come to make the world and us new and is coming again? “The 12-Days of Christmas” is more than a list of nonsensical, silly and impractical gifts: it’s a tool to teach children (and adults!) the basics of historic Christianity. All are invited to gather in the chapel to hear from Pastor Adam Feichtmann about the history of “The 12 Days of Christmas” and how we can continue the celebration of Jesus’ coming after the 25th. This event will be directly after the worship service and will be followed by light refreshments.
