Are You Being Called to Serve in a New Way?

As we run toward re-opening our building, the need for everyone to step up and serve is becoming clear! How is God calling you to be involved at church this fall? We invite you to prayerfully contemplate being on one of the following teams. It’s going to take ALL of us to get Our Redeemer’s back in full swing!
