What a blessing it has been to work together with you to advance God’s Kingdom in 2017! Tens of thousands of people locally and around the world were impacted by your partnership with Church of the Redeemer this past year. I am most thankful for several thousand who gave their lives to Jesus Christ through the ministries of our church!
One of the key highlights was impacting 16,864 people through our holiday giving program, which provided food cards for a Thanksgiving meal and gifts cards to enable Christmas gifts for the children. In addition, we served a meal to over 5,000 people between the two outreach events. I also hear countless stories of lives being changed in our own congregation as well as from the many pastors, leaders and mission organizations we support worldwide.
Church of the Redeemer has an important mission. Simply put, we’re committed to helping people “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 made a most valuable impact in the lives of many. We are very grateful for your eternal investment to the work of God here at Church of the Redeemer and are especially excited about what is to come in 2018.
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.

Dale A. O’Shields, Senior Pastor
