What to Expect When you Visit


Our Greeters will welcome you as you enter. They will happily give you a bulletin and help you find a seat if you’d like. If you need a large print bulletin or information about worship activities designed for children, an usher or greeter can assist you.


Our Sunday worship service begins at 10AM, and our service is about 75 minutes long. Redeemer is an Anglican congregation and our worship is both liturgical and sacramental. All that you need in order to participate will be contained in the bulletin. We encourage people to bring their own Bible (in print or on your electronic device), but if you don’t have one we have them in the chairs.

Children K-5 begin the service in the sanctuary, exit for “children’s church” during the sermon, and return for Communion. Nursery is available for little ones.

If you are a baptized follower of Jesus Christ, you are welcome to receive Communion.  The chalice contains wine, and you can choose to drink from the common-cup or dip your wafer.  Gluten-free wafers are also available. If you choose not to take Communion, you may either remain seated or you may come forward and receive a prayer of blessing by crossing your arms in front of you.

During Communion and after, trained prayer counselors are available in the prayer chapel to pray with you for physical, emotional, and/or spiritual healing.

The Sunday morning offering is for members of Church of the Redeemer to support the mission of the church.  As a guest, you are invited to complete a blue information card and drop that in the offering plate.


Sunday Discipleship hour for all ages begins at 9:00 am and ends at 9:50 am. We offer Sunday School for children age 5 to grade 5, small groups for Middle and High School youth, and an Adult Discipleship Class. We invite you to join us during this time. Nursery is available for little ones. Please note that we take a sabbatical during the month of July. 


This time of gathering for fellowship and study begins with a shared potluck meal at 6. Programs for all ages begin at 6:30.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I come to Redeemer if I’m __________?
Of course! We welcome everyone into our doors regardless of how you fill in the blank.

What do I wear to church?
Wear whatever you’re comfortable in. You will commonly see dresses, slacks, khakis, shorts, sneakers, dress shoes, and flip-flops.

What do my kids do on a Sunday morning?
During the summer children remain in the service with their families. Clipboards with activity sheets are available just outside the sanctuary. Those from age 5 through 5th grade are dismissed during the service to Children’s Church, and they rejoin their families for Communion.

Do I have to give money?
Absolutely not. But that doesn’t mean we won’t collect an offering. Our offerings go to support the ministries and mission of Church of the Redeemer – to build relationships between God and his people.

Will I be asked to stand up because I’m a visitor?
No way! But we love it when our guests stop by our Welcome Center to receive a guest bag. It’s full of information about the church, along with a couple of small gifts. What we think is really great is when our guests stay to introduce themselves after the service.

Have a question we didn’t answer here?
Contact the office and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

We are Anglican: a parish of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese of the Anglican Church in North America.

Statement of Faith

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

The Jerusalem Declaration

Written in 2008 by the participants in the Global Anglican Future Conference, the Jerusalem Declaration is a contemporary rule of faith to guide the Anglican movement, whose goal is to reform, heal and revitalize the Anglican Communion and expand its mission to the world. You can read the entirety of the statement here.

Favorite Bible passage

He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” So I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ, for whenever I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
