 1. All-Church Retreat: Our annual church retreat begins one week from today! 

If you have registered for the retreat, you will be receiving information about what to bring, etc. by email in the next few days. You may also pick up a copy of the packing list at the hospitality table at church this Sunday
 

The theme for this year's retreat is "Living as Sons and Daughters." Our hope is that our time away together will not only be an opportunity to enjoy fun activities (sign up at church on Sunday if you haven't already...) and one another's company, but will also be a meaningful experience of hearing from God and growing in our relationship with him. To this end, we are invited and encouraged to spend time over the coming week praying and preparing our hearts to receive what God has in store for us.


Please contact Alexis or Christal if you have questions or need more information about the retreat.
 
** Please note: There will be no Church of the Redeemer Saturday (5/28) or Sunday (5/29) services in Los Angeles during retreat weekend.  **



2. Retreat Transportation: Carpools are being arranged to ensure that everyone has a way to get to the retreat. If you are not already part of a carpool and either need a ride or have extra seats in your car, please speak with your home fellowship leader. If you are not in a home fellowship, contact Claudia or Marvin for transportation coordination.
