When Christ appeared to the disciples after he died, he told them to "go!" and preach and teach and baptize in his name, "and to remember" he would be with them until the end of the age. In this Great Commission, Christ gave the disciples and us a seemingly impossible task - go and tell the world the good news of what God has done for us through Christ. Yet Christ also promised to be with us in the midst of this impossible task- making all things possible and all things new by his grace given through the cross. It is in the spirit of Christ's sacrificial love and in obedience to the Great Commission that the people of Redeemer have been serving Christ by reaching out to the community and world for 60 years!
