Join us this Pentecost to celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit on Jesus’ disciples after his ascension into heaven.
We’ll keep partying after the service with a potluck and a Holy Ghost flame cake! Mark your calendar and don’t forget to wear red!
In addition to our potluck, we will have our annual All Parish Meeting. This meeting anticipates the beginning of our new fiscal year, which begins July 1st. We will hear from Fr. Rob and other key leaders on the state of our parish, see our new budget, and vote for two new Vestry members!
For the potluck: Bring food (plenty to share!) in the following categories, according to last name:
A to I: Bring salads (green, fruit, pasta, etc.) or side dishes
J to R: Bring main dishes (casserole, quiche, meat, etc.)
S to Z: Bring appetizers (chips & dip, bruschetta, etc.) & drinks
Calling all staff, vestry members, team leaders, small group leaders, and anyone serving in our parish: our next quarterly Leadership Huddle is May 9! This will be an important meeting where we discuss all things volunteers: how to recruit people, how to create volunteer rotations, and how to care for and celebrate our volunteers. We want to make sure we're giving away as much ownership of our ministry as possible, and continue to make sure our volunteers are being cared for really well.
Come celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and stay after the service for some Bubbly and Bites and an Easter Egg Hunt for the kids!
Parents: if you want your kids to participate in the egg hunt, please bring 6 plastic eggs filled with candy or money to the Parish Hall before the church service begins.
Join us in our first celebration of the Easter season when a new fire is kindled, and from it the Paschal Candle is lit, symbolizing Christ, the light of the world. Come ready to make some noise (literally—with bells, whistles, pots & pans, etc.) as we break our Lenten fast. Please contact Fr. Rob if you or your children want to be baptized on this holy feast.
Children are welcome to join this service - there will be no childcare
Join us as we are marked with ashes. Service held at Faith Community Church.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent: a time of penitence, fasting and prayer, in preparation for the great Feast of the Resurrection. On this day we receive ashes on our foreheads as a sign of sorrow and repentance for our own sin, and as a reminder that the wages of sin is death. But as we are marked with ashes in the same manner that we were signed with the cross in Baptism, we are also reminded of the life we share in Jesus Christ. It is in this sure hope that we begin the journey of the forty days of Lent, that by hearing and answering our Savior’s call to repent, we may enter fully into the joyful celebration of his resurrection.
This is a festive day decorating our beautiful sanctuary with fresh greenery! We’ll share some holiday goodies and drinks, and sing your favorite Christmas Carols! Please bring snacks/treats to share if you’d like. This is a joint event with Mt. Calvary and a great time to continue building relationships with our generous hosts.
Coming up on Sunday, December 17th we're hosting our Connect Class! This is a class for anyone interested in learning more about Redeemer. We'll have lunch together, hear from Father Rob, and have time for your questions to be answered. At the end of the class you'll receive an invitation to become members of Redeemer. There's no commitment to become a member just by attending the class. RSVP for a free lunch. Childcare will be provided.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to illness, this event has been cancelled. Rescheduled date TBD.
Calling all staff, vestry members, team leaders, small group leaders, and anyone serving in our parish: our next quarterly Leadership Huddle is November 8! We will hear from key leaders and get some helpful hints about leading our teams well.
Join Us for a NorCal Viewing of C4SO's annual Diocesan Convention! As a Deanery, we will join our Diocese to celebrate its 2017 growth and progress and hear Bishop Todd
Hunter's vision for 2018. We will then have noonday prayer, lunch, and a Deanery meeting together. Everyone is invited!
We will meet at St James Anglican Church at 9:30am.
Please RSVP to our Deanery admin Pat Morse (contact Fr. Rob for email address) by Nov. 1 so we can order enough food. Hope to see you there!
On October 22, the Sunday of our Fall Retreat, our Sunday worship service will be held at our retreat site, Koinonia Conference Grounds. Even if you are not attending the retreat, please come up for our Sunday service! The service time will be at 10:00 a.m. There will be no service at the Mt Calvary location that day.
This training is in response to our new diocesan initiative to protect our children and youth. No one will be allowed to serve with our kids without this training. It is mandatory for clergy, vestry, and children's volunteers. It is recommended for all parents and anyone who’d like to be available to help us out with childcare in a pinch.
Childcare & lunch provided
