Parenting Conversations at The Redeemer:
This fall, parishioners, Darren and Amy Clipston, are delighted to team up to lead a parenting conversation course. The parenting course includes watching a short video on various developmental stages in parenting, discussion, and eating a simple supper. Anyone with children aged 0-10 are invited to attend. The sessions will last two hours and childcare will be provided in the nursery. If you have been looking for a place to discuss parenting in the safe context of a Christian community, this is the gathering for you. Please contact Darren or Amy Clipston. Darren and Amy are the proud parents of Ella (8), Jonathan (5), and Jason (11 months). The Conversations will take place on October 12, 19, 26 and Nov. 2, and 9 from 4:30-6:30. Signup online here so we can plan childcare and food appropriately.
Faith and the Family:
Please look for monthly adult forums geared towards teaching and living faith at home and in the parish. Our first offering will focus on" Worshipping with Children: Why Bother?" Tory Kline and Melissa Wilcox will look at the theology of worship, the spirituality of children, and offer practical tips of being in the "big" church at Redeemer. Please join us.
Once again, our Rite 13 program will gather for a monthly Sabbath time. This program exists to allow our young people to rest, relax, and enjoy the gift of Sabbath with other kids in the Rite 13 program. In our increasingly programmed world, it is a gift to gather kids from different schools and give them a chance to enjoy each other and God's creation. All parents of Rite 13 youth play a role in shaping this program. Rebecca Northington, mother to Rite 13ers, Jack and Lachlan, facilitates this important ministry.
Save the Date, October 26, for a Missions Reflection Day.
Have you ever wanted to spend time engaging others at Redeemer about Missions? At the end of October, you have a unique chance to listen, converse, and think about Missions in the Church.
On Sunday, October 19, the clergy will lead a forum on theology of mission and how mission can be understood in the larger context of the life of the Church.
On Sunday, October 26, panelists comprised of Redeemer parishoners will answer questions about their involvement in Missions ranging from the Dominican Republic to the Blankenburg School. Using Conor Grennan's book, Little Princes, as a springboard for discussion, we will see a short video by Conor Grennan and then continue conversation at tables over lunch. Children and youth are more than welcome to this program as well. A children's activity will take place and youth will enagage in the program itself.
