What Is a Sunday like?

Our Sunday Gatherings at at 10:30 AM in-person and on Facebook Live. Our in-person worship service meets at 1320 W. Lindsey St. in Norman. We have hand sanitizer available in our building, and we thank you for wearing a face covering and maintaining a physical distance of 6 feet.

Wondering what Sunday’s like at Redeemer Church? Here are some of the questions we are often asked. We cannot wait to meet you, and feel free to reach out if you have more questions about connecting with us.

We are taking the global health crisis very seriously. We thank you for wearing a mask and for maintaining a physical distance of 6 feet. We are sanitizing our building. We have hand sanitizer-dispensing stations at our doors. Our preachers and worship team members are maintaining appropriate physical distance on stage, too. And, we are about to roll out a COVID-19 Response plan. Stay tuned, but do not hesitate to reach out if you have a need.

There is no one type of person who comes to Redeemer. Here, all are welcome. From those who have believed in Christ for decades to those who are just investigating who Jesus is, all are welcome here.
We are a family of people of different life stages, backgrounds, races, personalities, ages, etc. We hold to the fact that what unites us is Christ. We long to look more and more like his kingdom every day: a community of people of every tribe, tongue, and nation.

 

We try to keep our services simple and flexible. Most Sunday mornings, we will sing a few songs of worship together, one of our pastors will preach a sermon from God’s word, and we will end the service how we began: singing together. Some weeks, we will take communion together, read scripture aloud, or observe the practice of Baptism. All of these are practices are both Biblical and founded in centuries of Christian tradition.
If any of this sounds strange or new to you, that’s okay. We will do our best to explain what we do, and we always project lyrics to our songs as we sing so that you can participate even if this is new to you.

Yes! We love to sing together as an act of worship to our God. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard or sung these songs; we always project the lyrics so that anyone is welcome to sing along.

If these words are new to you, that’s okay. We will do our best to explain what we do. Both are traditions that are Biblical and founded in centuries of Christian tradition.
Baptism is the immersion of an individual in water as a sign of their commitment to follow Jesus in response to His salvation. Some churches sprinkle water on people or baptize very young children. We typically baptize adults or older children, and always do so by full immersion.
Communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is an act of remembrance of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. We take this together to remember the reason we gather. When we gather, any Christian is welcome to participate, whether they are a member of Redeemer or not. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are taking communion by means of individually-packaged sets of wafers and cups of juice.

We can’t wait to meet them!
We offer ministry on Sunday for children aged 0 through 5th grade. You can learn more about our RedeemerKids ministry here.
We also understand that some children have unique needs. You are welcome to invite your children to participate in RedeemerKids, but you are not required to; they are welcome to remain with us in the worship service. We will also do whatever we can to accommodate special needs your child may have.

On Sundays we get to respond to God together in worship. Here at Redeemer, we believe that all parts of our service are an act of worship, not just the parts that include singing. We worship God through song. We also worship him through giving, through prayer, through preaching of the word, through communion, and through welcoming all who gather in the peace and love of Christ.

  1. Sundays are for making much of Jesus.

It’s not about the people on the stage, whether they’re singing, praying, preaching, or whatever. It’s about Jesus: his life, death, and resurrection that redeems all of life.

  1. Sundays are for everyone.

You don’t need a degree in theology for Sundays to make sense to you. We strive for all aspects of our service to be accessible, biblical, and wholly centered on the gospel, no matter what your background or age. That’s why we have age-appropriate curriculum in each of our kids classes, because we want to partner with you in raising up disciples, not just babysit your kids.

  1. Sundays are a beginning.

Sundays are not the end of our Christian life. They’re important, and much of our need for Christ will be met during the other 6 days of the week, too. We need Christ every moment of every day. Sundays are meant to be a place where we can be encouraged, pointed to truth, and sent back out to make God known and love our neighbors down the street and around the world.
