"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”
Worship is at the heart of all that we do and all of who we are as Christians; chiefly an opportunity to praise and give glory to God in Christ, yet also a time when we are fed and nourished by the Word and Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, nourished by the presence of God found in Community as we pray and sing, laugh, cry and learn.
Joyously intergenerational, we worship in a format and style rooted in history and tradition, yet open to innovation and the experimentation necessary to carry the Gospel to the world. Within a continuity of worship structure we employ organ, piano, guitar, bass, and drums; a more traditional choir and the Redeemer Jam Band, time indoors and out, and an integrated Sunday Morning Youth Ministry.
We are calling on new worship experience “Worship Forward” because we are not going back to worship as we knew it before the pandemic. Instead, with God’s help we are prayerfully planning our way forward for the sake of sharing the gospel boldly and authentically through both in person and online worship!

What will my worship experience be?
Welcome is at the heart of our mission, so whether you're new to Redeemer, you've worshiped with us only online, or in-person, you're welcome here.
While the format of our worship has changed some to better support online/hybrid worship, it's still an uplifting experience that gives all praise and glory to God in Christ, and feeds and nourishes us through the presence of God in Community as we pray and sing, laugh, cry and learn.
