A Letter from Craig
Brothers and Sisters of First Presbyterian Church:
Grace and peace.
We are so thankful to partner with you in extending the kingdom of God through the power of the gospel. From the first day of starting Redeemer Fellowship in the urban core of Nashville, we have been astounded to see Jesus at work in people’s lives.
A diverse group of people now call Redeemer home. Businessmen and women (both recently out of college as well as established executives), singles, young families, homeless friends, and folks just starting to explore Christianity, are all coming into contact with Jesus through the ministry. It’s pretty amazing. This is the type of thing only God can do!
One of the aspects of Redeemer that seems to resonate with people who attend Sunday worship, both in person and online, is the opportunity during the service when we invite questions about the sermon in particular or Christianity in general. One person said, “I’m not sure I believe that everything you’re talking about is true, but I sure hope it is.” Even during the pandemic, it has feels like we have front row seats to the Spirit at work!
We would ask you to pray for several things as the Lord brings us to mind during this next season:
* The formation of deepening relationships with neighbors in downtown Nashville
* The means to bring on an intern to focus on several key ministry areas
* The unity of our family during this season with so much uncertainty
First Pres' financial generosity and commitment to pray for Redeemer Fellowship is a vital part of making this ministry a reality. We count it a privilege to partner with you in extending the kingdom of God through the power of the gospel in Amarillo, Nashville, and to the ends of the earth!
Warmest Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Craig T. Brown
