Spring New Membership Classes are beginning on April 11th. What does becoming a Member at Royal Redeemer mean? Membership means you are ready to call Royal Redeemer your spiritual home. Like any home, your decision signifies that you are ready for a deeper commitment of sharing and receiving from others in Christian community. New Member Classes are also a great place if you’re new to Royal Redeemer and you would simply like to get plugged into the life of our congregation.

What you crave!
What does Greed look like to you? Whatever Greed looks like to you, it’s likely it doesn’t look like the person you see when you look in the mirror. Greed is someone else, not me.
“Greed is an attachment to a good thing gone wrong.” - Glittering Vices, Rebecca DeYoung. Which means that Greed is not really a matter of finance, it’s a matter of the heart.
Greed displaces important things in our life by elevating the object of our cravings.
Greed cultivates ownership over the object of our cravings.
Jesus confronts all kinds of greed by generously giving his whole life for us.
Use your treasure to guide your heart.
if we want our hearts to be with God’s Kingdom and with the people around us and with the causes we are passionate about...and it’s not...then there is a really simple, but extremely hard thing we can do...we can give our treasure to God’s Kingdom, to the people around us, and to the causes we are passionate about.
Because in the end, our Heavenly Father doesn’t need or want our money, He desires for all people to place their hearts in his hands and say, “Yours.” It’s not about finance, it’s a matter of the heart.
