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 way to connect with others and grow spiritually. They are organized by location and interests so there is a group for everyone. Most of our Life Groups meet for 10-weeks in the Spring and 10-weeks in the Fall. This semester format is what we refer to as the “life cycle”.

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 an opportunity for the Redeemer family to come together as a community. Midweek begins with a catered dinner for $5/pp at 6:30 in the Ahern Center. Classes for every age begin at 7:15pm, and include great gatherings for children, youth, and adults. Our Special Nation community for those with diabiliteies also meet as a part of Midweek.
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?
Yes! Our sermons can be viewd on our YouTube platform, in the Redeemer Church App, and by clicking the button below. We hope that as you watch, you encounter God and are inspired by His Word!

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. Tithes and offerings are received in a few different ways: cash/check in an offering envelope, Text-To-Give, and through our church app. We know God will receive our tithes and offerings as an act of worship to Him.
The Communion Celebration is central to our entire worship experience. We celebrate Communion every Sunday. It is a special time for us to remember the sacrifice Christ paid on the cross for our salvation and His defeat over sin and death.
You will be lead in a brief liturgy and given instructions on how Communion will be received. At the start of the liturgy you will have the oppurtuinty to raise your hand if you did not recieve communion elements on your way in. At the end of the liturgy we will stand together to pray the Lord’s Prayer.
If you would like someone to pray for you, there are prayer teams ready to do so on both sides of altar. Once you have taken your communion elements, we will stand together for the closing song of worhsip.
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.
During this time you will hear about some upcoming events here at Redeemer. The announcement host will also share the church 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 priestly blessing (Numbers 6:23-27) by one of our assistant pastors. We hope you will make your way to Next Steps in the main Ahern Center so our team can meet you. We will also have a gift for you to say thank you for being our guest!
