What a blessing it has been to work together with you in the advance of God’s Kingdom throughout a most unusual and challenging year. Thank you for generously giving to the Lord’s work through Church of the Redeemer in 2020. We are so very grateful for you!
Though we are not meeting for onsite weekend services, our church is extremely active in carrying the mission God has trusted us. We have effectively responded to this year’s uniqueness, bringing the Word and meaningful worship into your homes using our video technology. We’ve reached 240,000 views across our online platforms! We give all the glory to God for 2,000 salvations!
Your contributions also allowed us to reach out in practical ways to those in need. We served over 115,000 people through our weekly food distributions and direct outreaches in the community. Almost 12,000 people, including many healthcare and front-line worker heroes, received bags of love and masks. In addition, we were able to provide Christmas gifts to over 3,000 children.
Your faithfulness enabled us to continue our mission to “connect, grow, and sow” – CONNECTING people to God and His church; GROWING people into fruitful, faithful followers of Jesus, that SOW their time, treasure, and talents back into His Kingdom. Your faithful contributions have impacted the lives of many this year, both here at home and all around the world, through the many mission partners that we support.
Malachi 3:10 (NIV) states, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” My prayer for you is that, in response to your faithful giving, God would pour out abundant blessings upon your life.
