The Church of the Redeemer will once again be hosting a Community Garden this year and we will be conducting an informational meeting for all those who are interested in gardening with us. Our informational meeting will take place on Thursday March 29th at 6:00pm at the Church. At the meeting we will give a report on last year’s garden, answer questions and begin the registration process. However, garden plots will not be assigned during this meeting but requests will be noted. All interested gardeners are encouraged to attend with special emphasis for those who have not gardened with us before.
The service of worship on Good Friday evening is modeled after an early Christian service called Tenebrae. The name Tenebrae is the Latin word for “darkness” or “shadows.” During worship we will experience a small portion of Christ’s pain and suffering the day of His crucifixion. One of the most conspicuous features of Tenebrae is the gradual extinguishing of candles. As it gets darker and darker we can reflect on the great emotional and physical pain that was very real for Jesus on the Cross.
This year’s Tenebrae service will be held at 7:00 PM on April 6th at St Andrew Christian Church, 1985 Swansford Drive (at the corner of Swansford and Smoky Row – between Summitview and Hard Road).
The results of this survey will help our Joint Board as they focus on the future, and will help prospective pastors become aware of the things that are important to the people of our congregation.
Here are the links to complete the online survey – one for members and on for friends.
