After six months of preparation, planning, and PRAYER, this Sunday is the “Grand Opening” of Redemption Church. By Grand Opening, we mean we are announcing to our community that we are a new church in town that is here to walk alongside people and introduce them into a growing relationship with Jesus.
Thank you for your support, prayers, and generosity over the last few months. Your partnership, prayers, and support have all led to this point! Planting Redemption Church has always been a team effort, thank you for being part of our team!
It would mean a lot to us if you would you take some time to pray for Redemption Church this weekend.
Here are some requests:
– Please pray that people would respond to the personal invitations and mass mailer invitations that have been sent out. Not only has our team made tons of personal invites, we have also sent out a mass mailer invitation to every mailbox in Belvidere and Poplar Grove, Il. Please join us in asking God to use these invitation in a mighty way. As of right now, our website has been viewed 300 times this week as a result of the mailers.
– Please pray that lives would be change by Jesus. The whole reason Redemption Church began was to see lives changed by Jesus. Please join us in praying that people would respond to the Gospel by repenting of their sin and trusting Jesus as their Savior this weekend.
– Please pray for our team. Our launch team consists of about 25 people who love Jesus and want to see lives changed by Jesus. Please pray for strength, boldness, peace, and joy. We are all excited and nervous about this weekend. Pray that our volunteers would all have opportunities to share the love of Jesus with people who show up this weekend.
