Here at Redemption we have been meeting for just shy of a year. We started in a house, moved to a community center, and are now meeting weekly at 945am on Sunday mornings at Cutting Hall in Palatine, IL.
This Saturday we are going to try a new tactic for the very first time--active marketing. By God's grace up until this point, our church has grown solely via word of mouth, utilizing Facebook and Twitter, and people who have found us on the Acts 29 website.
We decided to take this approach for a very special service. We are thrilled that we were able to reserve Cutting Hall for Christmas Eve and have a service planned from 4p-5p in which Ryan will speak on "Immanuel: Celebrating God's Gift To The World". We had 1000 postcards made that we are turning into door-hangers and will be blanketing the downtown Palatine area from 10a-1p.
Be praying for us as we distribute these cards on Saturday. For some of us, the Holidays are a love filled season of joy. For many others, it is one of the darkest times of the year filled with loneliness and despair. Our prayer is that these simple door-hangers would find their way into the hands of those people and God would bring them to Redemption on Christmas Eve to be changed by a Gospel Message.
If you are able and willing to help out, email me and I will send the the info for Saturday.
Please join us on Christmas Eve--we would love to celebrate with you!
