Redeemer Church exists to “Multiply Disciples and Engage the World, to the Glory of God.” With this in mind, we want to invite others to join us to see this vision made a reality.
Therefore, we have decided to take the entire month of November to give you guests an opportunity to learn, think, and pray about joining RPC. Therefore, starting on November 2nd we will begin our Membership Course during the normal Sunday School time (9:10 am – 10:00 am). We strongly encourage you to make plans to attend this 5 week course so that you can decide for yourself if becoming a member at RPC is something God is calling you to do.
For our members, we invite you to come to this course as well. Why? Well we are glad you asked! One thing this class will do is remind you of the covenant you made when you joined Redeemer. Second, this class will allow you to meet and have fellowship with many of the new folks that have been coming to RPC and will soon join Redeemer. Third, this will be a great refresher course for you on the church in general, the PCA as a denomination, RPC’s vision, and ways to serve the church.
Overall, we believe that God will use this time to grow us all into the body of Christ He wants us to be and we strongly encourage all to attend!
Here is the course breakdown:

We will dive into how someone becomes a Christian and what it means to live a vibrant life motivated by God’s grace in your life.
