  • The Sedgefield Group is made up mostly of young professionals and is split between singles and married couples. As a group that’s all in our twenties and early thirties, we’ve spent a lot of time focusing on how we can use this early life stage as a catalyst to deepen our individual relationships with Jesus for our whole lives.


  • Our hope over the coming months is to see our view expanded of the whole, complete, full, satisfying, and eternal life that God has set before us through Christ. One of the obstacles that may be keeping you from knowing this full life may be your riches, or your poverty. James reminds us that when looking at our life through an eternal perspective, riches and poverty are merely a means for us to know God more, or be pushed further from Him in our sin...


  • The Wilmore group seeks to be a place where we can meet weekly as a “safe place” of learning from each other, with the ultimate goal of being more like Jesus in all areas of our lives. Each week we spend time catching up on each other’s lives, and how God has been moving, and where we would like to see him move...


  • This week we looked at faith and wisdom, and  how the typical application leaves us vulnerable to religion apart from Christ. Read below to hear the good news that pure faith emphasizes Christ's work while still giving us freedom to act in godly ways...


  • I have been asked to write a short blog about the Huntersville Group and what we have been up to lately. Our group enjoys gathering together for fellowship, service, and accountability. I asked our members how they would describe our group and one reply I received said:  “We are a small and weird group with lots of kids.” Seems about right; I will go with that answer. And in case you’re wondering, we currently have 8 kids in our group, two of which are middle schoolers.  By Redemption standards, that’s a lot of kids. Come by and visit and we may put you to work watching our kids...


  • A healthy church has a spiritual, relational, and practical benefit to the members and its immediate community. This kind of church worships Jesus, loves each other as family, and serves together in mission...


  • Pastor Shawn kicks off our new sermon series titled, Faith: The Power of Spiritual Wholeness, by discussing James 1:1-4. What is spiritual wholness? How should we respond to trials? 


  • This Sunday  we are starting a new sermon series on the book of James called Faith: The Power of Spiritual Wholeness. Most of us probably think the emphasis in James is the differentiation between faith alone, and faith accompanied by action. James surely awakens our mind to consider the life of faith applied. But as we read through the book many times, one theme continued to emerge for us beyond the faith and works conversation, the great power of faith working, and specifically the power of a disciple committed to Jesus. We call this spiritual wholeness...


  • This week we closed out the We Are The Church series by looking at Life as a Disciple. In Mark 1:14-20, we see the practical day-to-day implications of living out the good news of Jesus. The gospel doesn't give us a checklist to receive the gospel, but rather gives us a description of the grace of God made evident in a disciple as a response to the gospel...


  • The Concord group has been studying the book of Acts. We selected Acts because of the model the young church demonstrates. We've been studying how they respond to challenges and the incredible success at reaching others with the Gospel. The reliance of the early church on the Holy Spirit as well as each other as a community in Christ is an example of what we are striving to reach in our own community...
