Sunday Notes

A Note from Pastor Austin . . .

May 27th, 2020

I hope you all enjoyed a nice Memorial Day Weekend. We are certainly grateful for those in our lives and our country who served and sacrificed in pursuit of a more free and just world.
This past week I posted these words on our Redmond Presbyterian Church Facebook page,
“We need not be hurried to “re-open” because the reality is that we have never closed. We’ve continued worshiping, studying scripture, meeting together, providing food for those in our community, and sharing our lives in community. We’ve simply found new ways to do these things together.”
I am grateful to get to be a part of this community of faith and to see the way these words about being the church in new ways has come true. I’m proud of you all and grateful to God for this church.
In the coming weeks, here are a few of the ways that we are gathering in new expressions:
1. Wednesday Bible Study: Weekly on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m.
Click the Zoom link to join us. I’ll be absent this week, but the group will enjoy a discussion on the Acts 2 Pentecost passage. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81620709419
2. Pentecost Sunday: Send us your photos in RED!
If you’d like to be a part of this Sunday’s service (and we’d love for you to help us out) please email a photo of you and your family wearing Red or holding something Red and I’ll include it in our Sunday online service. Please email your photo to austin@redmondpres.org by no later than Wednesday at 5:00 p.m.. Thanks everyone.
3. RPC Virtual Small Groups:
Our online small groups are up and running and going well. If you would like to be a part of one, would like to lead one, or have any questions about these groups please contact Pastor Austin.

Thanks everyone for your faithfulness and grace in the midst of this COVID time. Grace and peace friends,

Pastor Austin
