Welcome to The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, Maryland, a vibrant, growing parish community of “inquiring and discerning hearts”, where all – the doubter, the seeker, and the believer – are welcome to join us in living and wrestling with the often difficult questions of faith. Here we value an Anglican spirituality – one that is open to the mystery of the Holy and which celebrates the dignity of human nature and the beauty of all creation. [Read more…]
Send us your Prayers
Dear Redeemer Family,
During this time when we can’t be present to one another in person we need to stay in contact with each other and stay together, as a community, in connection with God.
With that in mind, we would like to share prayers with each other aloud during our worship on Sunday afternoon at TheFIVE. We invite you to share your thanksgivings and petitions, in your own thoughts and in your own voice.
Each week, we invite you to express your petitions of thanks, praise, and requests. First, write them as prayers consisting of a few succinct sentences (between 1 and 3) and then read them aloud in a phone message sent to 301-664-4237. They will be recorded there. The number is, in effect, an answering machine.*
Each week we will collect and shape our prayers into a pre-recorded Prayers of the People. While we cannot touch, or easily see each other, we will still be able to hear each other, and join our individual prayers as one.
Your prayers will inspire others! What are you grateful for? About what (and for whom) are you concerned? For what do you long (and wish to work toward)?
Yours, in the Risen Christ,
Cricket+, David+, and Geoffrey
