Our church opens its doors...

This Sunday we will focus on something that drives away fear.  We have recently read so much in the news about fears beyond reason in many Americans reacting to the spread of the Ebola virus.  I think you know where my sermon will go, but it should be interesting and helpful to explore the life draining power of fear and how to de-thrown it. 


The soul eroding power of fear is what Jesus addressed with his followers when they faced real threats to their lives, threats that actually ended up happening to them.  But Jesus had a clear and uplifting way of helping them (and us) to live without being derailed or sidelined by fear.


I hope you join us for a great time of worship.  I look forward to seeing you. 

Pastor Larry

We’re anticipating a great turnout of our church's members and friends to help us to spruce up the church campus for Advent Season.  The Boy Scouts' Troop 520 will be out in force to lead the way as we clean the parking lot, trim the branches, pull the weeds, clean the gutters, clear the roofs, dusting clean the sanctuary interiors, and enjoy each other’s company.  Please join us ---even if you can only stay for a short while.  (Gardening gloves and personal tools encouraged) Redmond Presbyterian Church's 50th anniversary is fast approaching.
