Worship Service : 9:30 am

Many times we wonder if God really hears and answers our prayers.
Those doubts may provide the devil with an opportunity to tempt us to forsake the Lord.
Paul offers us the assurance we desperately need.
We are heard and answered because of Jesus' reverence to his father and to his will

Christian Education : 11:00 am

We will begin a new study.



Upcoming Events

--- Lent ---

Midweek Lenten worship begins Ash Wednesday, February 14th.

During these weekly Wednesday services we will follow the theme: "We have Something Better -- Jesus."
As we focus on the sufferings and death of our Savior to redeem us from sin, death and the power of the devil,
we will turn our attention to the Book of Hebrews. In this clear Gospel presentation, the writer not only
proclaims how Jesus fulfilled all of God's Old Testament Prophecies, he also reveals how Jesus
gave us something better -- something that supports us in every difficulty, trial, and temptation.
All services will begin at 7:00 pm

Ash Wednesday - February 14th He is Better than the Angels
Wednesday - February 21st He is Better than an Earthly High Priest
Wednesday - February 28th He is Better than God's Servant Moses
Wednesday - March 7th He is Better than the Covenant Promise
Wednesday - March 14th He is Better than Endless Bloody Sacrifices
Wednesday - March 21st He is Better than a Fleeting Shadow


--- Holy Week ---

Less than a month away, the special time of repentance, forgiveness and new life which is Holy Week is fast approaching.

CERT Training
Tentatively planned for three Saturdays: 9am - 5pm : April 7th, 14th & 21st

The City of Goleta provides Free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training.
We at Our Redeemer are hoping to get a sufficient group together to be able to hold a class at our facilities.
The class consists of 20-24 hours and results in a FEMA Certificate on completion of all classes.

Classes consist of:

Disaster Preparedness: Team members learn how to prepare themselves and their
neighbors for the various types of hazards that may occur in our community.
Fire Suppression: Learn to mitigate fire hazards in the home, fire chemistry and fire suppression. Hands-on fire extinguisher training.
Medical Operations Part I: Participants practice diagnosing and treating airway obstructions, bleeding, and shock by using simple triage and rapid treatment techniques.
Medical Operations Part II: Covers evaluating patients, establishing a medical treatment area, and performing basic first aid.
Light Search and Rescue: Participants lean light search and rescue planning, techniques, and rescuer safety.
Team Organization: Addresses CERT organization and management principles necessary for CERT to operate successfully.
Disaster Psychology: Covers signs and symptoms that might be experienced by the disaster victim and worker.
Terrorism & Homeland Defense: Do's and don'ts during a terrorist act and homeland defense tips.
Course Review & Disaster Simulation: Participants review the course and practice the skills that they have learned during the previous seven sessions in a disaster simulation.

If you would like to participate in this training and can commit to these three Saturdays,
