On Sunday, December 9 at all services on the East Side and Downtown and Sunday, December 16 at the West Side AM services the Diaconate will receive our annual Special Offering. We rely on your prayer support, and invite you to partner with us by giving to the Mercy Fund. In addition to prayerfully considering contributing to this vital ministry of mercy, please encourage those congregants around you who are in need to contact the Diaconate for help. Our Mercy Fund is available to members and regular attendees of Redeemer.
We on the Diaconate continue to marvel at our Lord’s ongoing and unfailing mercy, which brings healing, provision and spiritual growth. The Mercy Fund enables our deacons and deaconesses to model Jesus’ compassion for his sheep and continue to meet the concrete and visible needs of those in our church family.
As we approach this Christmas season, we are thankful that the birth of Jesus gave us hope and promise of relief in the midst of this broken world. God displays his abundant mercy and faithful love to us through his son, Jesus Christ. It is Christ’s never-ceasing intercession on our behalf that comforts us, transforms our hearts and strengthens us to face of the hurricanes of life such as physical illness, joblessness, social and spiritual hardships.
“I thank you both for all you have done for me in Jesus name. I have never felt so cared for as I have during this awful time of unemployment and confusion. It has changed my perspective on many things.”
