2020 Network of Churches Meetings
For many years, Redeemer has been moving from being just one large church in several locations to becoming a family of networked independent churches. There are two important online gatherings this Fall to complete a process that began in 2017 and help set up our church for the future.
Sunday evening, October 18 starting at 8 p.m., was the Redeemer Network of Churches Presentation with Q&A about the various items church members will vote on as a collective body of churches in the November 1 meeting. Members of our combined Board of Trustees and our senior pastors highlighted the missional benefits of our ongoing network.
Sunday evening, November 1 starting at 8 p.m., will be an official online Redeemer Network and Congregational meeting. A long list of items, which we are explaining on October 18, will be voted on that are both network-wide and also congregation-specific. For access to these documents, click here. Per New York State nonprofit law, only members will be allowed to attend and vote on November 1.
Though these official church meetings may seem full of dense legal documents, they help provide the structure for ministry to flourish. As one author puts it, they are building the trellis on which the garden vine of vital ministry can grow!
