Description of Organization

Redeemer currently has 330 communing and 85 non-communing members, with an average attendance of 365 people (125 children) in two Sunday morning services. 40% of those who attend each week are 18-years-old or younger. We are a multi-generational congregation – 25% 55 and up, 50% families with teenagers and children, and 25% young adults and singles. Those with church backgrounds are from either broadly evangelical or mainline churches. Only a few of our members have a PCA background.

Our worship services are designed to be outward facing and welcoming to non-believers. Over the past 5-7 years we have averaged 15 professions of faith each year. Redeemer’s worship services are more liturgical than free-form. Our building is traditional. We have pews and stain-glass windows. However, the dress (and the atmosphere) is informal. We are led by a worship band, including acoustic and electric guitars, bass, keyboard, and drums, and, occasionally, other instrumentation. We typically sing new arrangements of traditional hymns, as well as songs from Indelible Grace, CityAlight, Getty Music, Sovereign Grace Music, and others. We strive to worship God in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24). Passionately and also earnestly. With both joy and reverence.
