Fellowship

  • Dear Friends in Christ,

    What a strange and unusual time we are living in as individuals, as a world, and as the Church! It is a time of much turmoil, stress, and fear. Yet it may also be that this time, with Christ helping us through the power of the Holy Spirit, becomes a time of re-focusing on what really matters in life and for faith. In fact, I’ve already been seeing some of these focusing and refocusing efforts through:

    • People taking advantage of less running around to pray and think about their lives and this world and their priorities.
    • The mobilizing a 2x2 Ministry to connect the Redeemer community (coming soon!)
    • Bringing Redeemer overnight into the virtual ministry world and not giving up on improving the quality and fluency of these efforts (Last Sunday we improved sound with a different microphone and this Sunday we’ll be on Zoom for worship instead of Google Meet - look for forthcoming instructions in our e-newletter!).
    • Connecting to wider community efforts to help our neighbors (see last week’s newsletter, the bottom half of the invitation to Lenten Weds, and this week’s e-newsletter as well)
  • By now, all of us have been hearing (perhaps in super-saturated fashion) about Covid-19 and the accompanying concerns and problems this crisis is presenting for our communities and world. There is no doubt that we are living amidst a truly challenging time! And in the midst of such challenging times, we as Christians and the community of Redeemer will want to challenge ourselves to plan proactively and wisely, even as with Christ’s help and the support of each other we deepen our practices of courage and lives of faith-in-action as disciples together.

  • Palm Sunday marks the end of our Lenten journey, and the beginning of Holy Week. Join us at 9am, Sunday, as we gather together for Palm Sunday worship, and throughout the week for this virtual vigil as we prepare for the Resurrection.

    To ensure the health and well-being of all of our parishioners, family, friends, and community, we'll be gathering virtually together for Worship and a time of fellowship.

  • Dear Brothers and Sisters of Redeemer New Paltz,

    COVID-19 is causing disruption in every aspect of our modern lives, from health and daily routines, to work and economic stability, and to personal and group connectedness in our worship community.

    We are in uncharted territory. As we strive for new and creative ways to worship and keep our congregation together, supported, and connected during these unusual times, we are reminded that God works in mysterious ways and that work never ceases. How can we continue to "Share Christ's Welcome" with our fellow congregants, friends, neighbors, remaining students, as well as those who may be in need?
