What if I'm not used to going to church?

What will the worship service be like?
To put it simply, we teach from the Bible. We pray and we sing. The goal through it all is not to wow you, it’s to love God and know him better by making God’s unchanging truth accessible without watering it down.

Who leads Redemption's Hill?
Redemption’s Hill is an elder-led, but member-informed, church.
What are elders?
Elders are the leaders of the church also called pastors, bishops and overseers in the New Testament (Acts 20:28; Eph. 4:11; I Peter 5:2). The elders are men chosen for their ministry according to clear biblical qualifications (I Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9). The elders are always spoken of in plurality because God intends for more than one man to lead and rule over the church as a safeguard for both the church and the man.
Who Are Your Current Elders?
Currently, planting Pastor T.J. Dreyer and Elder Garett Richards serves as the local elders for Redemption’s Hill Church. While an advisory board has been created that functions as external elders until qualified men locally can be appointed.
