Frequently Asked Questions
What are your services like?
Our Sunday morning and Wednesday evening Midweek services are intended to be a celebration of God’s goodness. We know that everyone comes from a variety of backgrounds and are all at different places in our spiritual journey. We want everyone to feel comfortable here. The inclusive nature of Redeemer Church provides a church home for those of various religious or non-religious backgrounds. If you are visiting, simply come as you are and relax. We will do all we can to make the service a good experience for you!
What will happen the first time I visit?
If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you.
What about my children?
At Redeemer Church your children are a top priority. Our nurseries are clean, safe, and staffed with loving workers. We offer a dynamic children’s ministry called Redeemer Kids as well as life-changing ministry to students. Learn more about out student ministries on our Connect page.
Do you have small groups that meet?
Life Groups at Redeemer are a great place to connect with others and grow spiritually. Join a small group of people who gather each week for community, prayer, and Bible study. Life Groups are organized by location and interests so there is something for everyone. Learn more about Life Groups or connect with a group. We are just kicking off our Fall Life groups right now. Take a look at the map on this page to find one near you!
What type of worship will there be?
Redeemer is a congregation that blends a unique expression of historical and contemporary forms of worship. You will hear everything from 200 year old hymns to music just released from worship artist around the world.
How long are your services?
The services will last about 75-90 minutes.
What do I wear?
You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits. Come in what is comfortable for you, because Redeemer is not about what you look like or what you wear.
Do you meet at the church during the week?
Our MidWeek gathering provides the opportunity for our Redeemer family to come together as a community and laugh together, learn together, and use our gifts in ministering to one another. Dinner is a delicious, catered meal for $5 and begins at 6:30 in our Epicenter. Classes, seminars, and other sessions for all ages begin at 7pm with something for children, youth and adults. Adult studies include a wide range of topics: discipleship, women’s series, divorce care, and other specialty groups. Guest teachers also minister on occasion in a combined assembly in the sanctuary. Midweek provides, for many, an opportunity to get to know new people, form new friendships, and bond together as a part of the Redeemer family and the body of Christ. We look forward growing with you and your family each Wednesday at MidWeek!
Can I watch your sermons online?
We place an emphasis on providing principle-centered teaching to equip all members with a growing knowledge of the Bible. Our hope is that you are able to walk away from our sermons with practical guidelines that will help you apply the teachings from the Bible to your everyday life. These messages provide a revitalizing new perspective and leave our attendees feeling rejuvenated and new. We believe that an in-depth examination of the Bible can lead to an encounter with God through the Holy Spirit. Our most recent sermons can be found here.

Sunday Worship Details
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our friendly Serve Team volunteers who make up our Parking Lot team. They will help you find a convenient parking spot and escort you to our main entrance if you would like assistance. You’ll be welcomed by our Serve Team Hosts. They are ready to help you find where you need to go, whether you need to check-in your kids at rKids, drop your infant-PreK child in our safe nursery, or are ready to find a seat in the main sanctuary. Of course, you’re more than welcome to find your own way around and take your time getting to know our facility. Please make yourself right at home!
After a few songs, our Worship Leader will greet the congregation and release all K-5th grade kids to have a great time in rKids. As a guest, you can rest assured knowing you will never be called out, asked to stand, or introduced to a crowd. We’re just glad you’re here! We’ll take a few seconds to greet each other. This is a brief chance to say hi to a neighbor or meet a couple new faces. If you’d prefer to stay in your seat, please do.
During this time, you will be invited to give. Please do not feel obligated to give. This is for tithing members of Redeemer Church. Of course, if you feel led to give, you can. The pastor will give clear directions on how you can give (envelope, online, text to give, etc.)
We know God will receive our tithes and offerings as an act of worship to Him. Tithes and offerings are received by passing black offering buckets down each row. While this happens, you will either view a special video about an area of ministry at Redeemer Church or will be ministered to through song by our worship team or a special musical guest. We love to feature other styles of music during this spot.
The Communion Celebration is central to our entire worship experience. We celebrate Communion at every service. It is a special time for us as a church family, to remember the sacrifice Christ paid on the cross for our salvation and His defeat over sin and death.
One of our assistant pastors will lead a brief liturgy and give instruction on how Communion will be received. You will be directed up to the front of the sanctuary, where our Communion servers will place a piece of bread in your hand. You then dip it in the cup and consume it. Once you’ve taken Communion, make your way back to your seat or spend some time of personal prayer at the altar. If you would like someone to pray for you, there are prayer teams ready to do so on both sides of the sanctuary. They would love to pray with you!
During Communion, our worship team will lead us in a couple of songs that compliment the contemplative and intimate atmosphere. Feel free to engage in worship as much or as little as you’d like.
Our services begin with a short invitation from our Worship Leader to join in a time of praise and worship. During this time of music, you’ll find regular attenders of Redeemer stand to engage. Do not feel obligated to stand if you’d just like to sit and take it all in- that’s totally okay! We express our worship outwardly through the raising of hands, clapping, dancing, kneeling, or finding a place at the altar to pray and connect with what God is doing. There is absolute freedom during our time of worship.
One of our pastors will make their way to the stage to share a couple of announcements of upcoming events. They will also share our Prayer Focus for that week. Every week, we pray together for another church or ministry in our city. We believe God has called us to be united with all churches. This is one way we do that.
When the offering has been received, our Lead Pastor, or occasional guest speaker, will come to the stage and speak a life-giving message inspired by and centered around God’s Word. You’ll receive many scripture passages and encouraging points that you can apply to your life or situation. All scriptures and points will be shown on the screens, so it will be easy for you to follow along and get the most of out of the message!
Our services conclude with a special blessing by one of our assistant pastors. You can slip out quickly or find your way to Guest Central where we can meet you and give you a gift just to say thank you for being our guest!
