CONCERNING ALL OTHER EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES

Unless otherwise noted below, or otherwise communicated, ALL events and activities remain postponed,

or cancelled, until further notice.

CONCERNING LIFE GROUPS

As Fr. Chris has mentioned, find creative ways to stay connected, through Skype, Zoom, Face Time, emails, phone calls, etc.

CONCERNING PASTORAL CARE

As we are asking our Lord what a "Gospel response" to this pandemic might look like (1) for each of us individually,

(2) for our church corporately, (3) within our parish family, and (4) within the community we serve.

We can't do everything, but there will be some thing(s) we can begin do.

 

    FIRST, remember that we are all in this together: Because we are all brothers and sisters in Christ, your vestry will be reaching out to every member of the congregation over the next few days, at least via email, to check in on everyone and see how each of us is doing. The vestry will continue to check in on everyone every couple of weeks. Please share with us how you are doing - what are your prayer requests? Do you have needs? If we can meet them within our community, we will. If we can't, we will point you to resources. The vestry will continue to keep the clergy apprised of how people are doing.

However, please feel free to contact Fr. Mark HERE or Fr. Chris HERE.

As Jesus said, "By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35.

    SECOND, as needs are identified: If you would be willing help coordinate and/or be part of a response team,

please contact Fr. Chris HERE.

    THIRD, if you have prayer requests, please click HERE.

 

AGAIN, none of this caught God by surprise, and it certainly did not knock him off his throne! We may live in a fallen world, but by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are not subject to futility or fatalism. Indeed, we are more than conquerors! So, let me close by inviting us to meditate on these words, written by the Apostle Paul nearly 2,000 years ago, who himself endured incredible hardship and suffering for the sake of the Gospel:

 

"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory, beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal." -

II Corinthians 4:16-18

 

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Chris Culpepper+

Rector, CTR

We are a church of the great command,

the great commission and The great tradition.

The Great Command & The Great Commission
Jesus said
, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and Great Commandment, and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

&

 “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth.”

 

For over 2,000 years now, the Church has had one, simple calling: to know Christ and to make him known.

This, in sum, is the Great Command and the Great Commission.

 

The Great Tradition

Our Anglican worship service is based on the Book of Common Prayer that was first compiled in 1549 by Thomas Cranmer. While the Book of Common Prayer has since undergone many revisions, it is still acknowledged as one of the ties that bind the Anglican Communion together. Our service today is based on the Book of Common Prayer of 1662.


What to expect on ordinary Sundays...

Whether you are new to church or haven’t been for a long time, you are most welcome at Christ the Redeemer. Here is some of what to expect on a Sunday morning.

 

First, please come as you are. From suits to sandals, we want you to feel at home with us. Second, when you come in our doors, you will be greeted by one of our members. They can help you locate the nursery, grab a cup of coffee, and find your way around our parish home.

 

Also, children are welcome in church. But, if you prefer, we have a nursery with at least 2 trained staff. You are welcome to bring your child in at any point during the service. Many parents bring them during Communion, when they may be blessed by one of our priests.


...and what to expect at our worship service.

To get you started, there are two basic things you will want to know about our worship service. FIRST, our worship service is highly participatory! Together, we sing, pray, read Scripture, hear a message that applies to our daily lives, take communion, and are charged to go and make disciples of all nations! SECOND, we do these things because this is what the Church has always done! Our worship service is taken directly from what Jesus said to  the 12 apostles: "Do this in remembrance of me." Though, we are, currently, worshipping in our homes we can still take communion spiritually and worship God together!.

 

Of course, so much more could be said about the beauty and depth of our worship service, but the best way is to “come and see” for yourself!

Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church

In 2008, a group of people had a vision to follow Jesus and plant the church called Christ the Redeemer.

That vision is the same today as it was then, our vision is God's vision:

 

“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”

 

When Jesus taught his disciples how to pray, he said, “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” So, this is our vision statement at CTR. First and foremost, it is God’s own vision.

And, we at CTR only want what God has in mind for us.
