At Redeemer, we love the Bible.
We also love to pray.
Our hope is that our entire church would participate in this 10/10 Challenge! The Challenge is simple: Read the Bible 10 minutes per day & Pray 10 minutes per day.
But sometimes its hard to know where to start. The 10/10 Guide will be just that, a "guide". Click the link below. You will see Bible reading for each day, as well as a prompt to help you pray. We hope it will be a simple tool for you to use. Our goal as a church is to get 100% participation. So jump in, and enjoy the God of grace.
God is Grace. Grace isn't just what He gives but Who He is.
Spiritual Disciplines are one of God’s means of grace. One of the primary ways He lets us experience more of Who He is.
But discipline can be a funny word when connected to grace. Often when we think of “discipline” we think; effort, work, labor, obedience. All that is true in it’s own way. But spiritual disciplines are different. Spiritual disciplines are not the things we do to get more of God’s approval or love. Spiritual disciplines are not what we do to earn His grace. Spiritual disciplines are the things we do to get more of the God who is grace. Or perhaps more accurately, for the God Who is Grace to get more of us.
Spiritual disciplines like Bible, prayer, community, serving, fasting, worship; are all ways God gives Himself to us. To show us what He is like. The regular practice of Gospel-fueled grace-driven spiritual disciplines also shapes us to become more like Him. As we see Him better we begin to look like Him more.
Come let’s learn together the good news of spiritual disciplines.
Devoted Personal Discipleship Plan (PDP)
This PDP is a tool to help you experience the good news of spiritual disciplines as we go through DEVOTED.
Devoted – Week 1
Those that rest with Jesus and learn with Jesus will begin to look more like Jesus. The invitation is simple, yet astounding. Jesus says come to me. He gives rest. He helps us learn. His yoke is easy, His burden is light. Christ invites you into what we may call "comfortable Christianity."

Devoted – Week 2
Jesus has done all of the heavy lifting in order to secure our salvation. However, this doesn't automatically mean that all Christians are growing in Christlike maturity. To say it another way, maturity is not automatic. And so, we train. We train ourselves for godliness by grace-driven, gospel-fueled effort. Drifting toward holiness doesn't happen, by the grace of God we grind for holiness.
