Sundays - The Church Gathered
Sunday gatherings are a unique opportunity to center around God to hear from His Word, consider His work, sing His praise, and enjoy His presence. We gather as a body recognizing that the local church is the means by which God displays His glory to the world.
We place a high value on liturgy; seeking to honor the past through the many traditions, creeds and confessions handed down through history, while also dialing down the formality of those traditions to appropriately reflect the context of our foothills community here in Grass Valley. The service last around 1.5 hours – you are welcome and encouraged stay after to fellowship with one another.
Our music is varied, including both hymns and contemporary songs. The priority for us is not style or genre, but biblical content, theological accuracy, and congregational accessibility.
Our Sunday service begins at 10:30am, so you will want to arrive around 10:15 to meet other people, check your children into the Kid's Ministry (infants - Elementary), or find a seat within the auditorium. If you have any questions ahead of time, feel free to email us here.
We believe parents are called to be the primary spiritual leaders of their children and so we strive to support them however we can. Additionally, our Sunday gathering is structured so that families can worship together.
All kids ages Kindergarten through 5th grade join us for the first part of the service and are then dismissed for Kids Worship before the sermon. 6th graders and older join us throughout the service. We provide childcare for kids from 6 weeks old through preschool and you can drop them off before the service begins. Learn more about Redeemer's Family Ministry here.
Above all, we must prize the blessing of corporate worship. The church of the Lord, gathered for worship, marks the pinnacle of our fellowship with the Lord and with one another. The church is the people of God, the new humanity, the beginning of the new creation, a colony of heaven… In corporate worship we experience the meaning of union with Christ. -- Edmond Clowney
