COVID-19 REDEEMER GATHERINGS
After conversations with various leaders from our city, as well as leaders from our church, we’ve made the decision to cancel our in-person services at least until August 16th. We will be utilizing technology to live stream our services. More information on how to participate in those services will be posted as soon as we have that information. Please follow our update pages by clicking on the "COVID-19" tab at the top of this site. We will also be updating our site regularly with resources.
We are looking for options as to how we can continue to gather in safe ways. We are evaluating live meetings on several different platforms for our Gospel Communities and for our Learning Cohorts and other classes. We are also planning outdoor Discipleship Groups and other activities with appropriate social distancing measures in place. Please bear with us as we work through these issues.
All of our Sunday services will be online until at least Sunday, August 16th. This is in accordance with the CDC's guidelines of restricting gatherings of 50 or more. Our services will still be at 10:30AM, and we will follow a modified flow of a normal service. We ask that you get dressed, grab some coffee, come as you would to a service at Will Rogers, and be ready to worship and learn together. You can join our Sunday service on YouTube or on our website. We will send links out on all out social media platforms. During this time of going online, we want to encourage you all to share those links on social media for others in our city to join us. This is a unique opportunity to invite others in who may never normally come to our physical gathering.
You can see a list of guidelines for in-person, outdoor meetings here.
We know that some of you have chosen to give to Redeemer on Sunday mornings during the offering time. While we cannot offer this at this time, we wanted to encourage you to give another way during this time. You can make checks out to "Redeemer Stillwater" and mail to: 324 S. Husband St. #106, Stillwater, OK 74074. Or you can set up online giving on our website.
We are also taking up money for a benevolence fund to help provide financial help to those in our city who will have various needs arise during this time. If you would like to give to that, just go to our giving page and select "Benevolence" as your designation. All that money will go to those in need in our church and/or city!
In place of weekly physical gatherings, we will be giving access to Zoom to our GC Leaders to host times together online. These times will be important for us to communicate with one another, pray together, share what's going on and point one another to Jesus. Mark your calendar as you would if everything was normal. This is a great time be present with one another, while separate in some sense.
We are also considering what classes we may be able to continue to offer at this time, as we have a unique opportunity here to do more online and with our schedules and jobs changing during this time. So be looking out for other classes that may be offered!
