Greetings from Pastor Shannon

If you are seeking a faith community where you may see and be seen by the holy and where you can ask questions of God surrounded by the love and support of a diverse family, come and worship with us at Church of the Redeemer. We affirm and celebrate every child of God as they are created: LGBTQIA+ and straight; young and old; Black and brown and white; from every racial and ethnic background; at any and every step of your spiritual journey. At COR, may you hear the strains of your own symphony and share it with others. Together, we will honor the image of God within each of us, and focus our gaze outward to participate in the movement of the holy in our community and the world. Bring your questions, your doubts, and all of the baggage that the world has placed on you. There’s enough overhead storage for us all.

Our mission is even more critical now, as we relearn how to be community while we are physically separated. I encourage you all to follow guidelines for health and safety – wash your hands, limit in-person gatherings, take additional precautions if you are at high risk of infection. But do not become isolated – instead, call and write to your loved ones. Have video chats! Find us on Facebook and worship from the comfort of your home. This is uncharted territory for many of us, but we are children of the God who leads us through the wilderness and continues to reveal blessings in the valley. I am praying for each of you and look forward to being together in person again soon.

Through Christ and through the Spirit,

Pastor Shannon
