When we tell the “story of Redemption,” we try to be mindful of the play on words.
There is, after all, a story of Redemption that sounds like any other “about us” tab on any other organizational website. We’re a small, close-knit group of people in the southwest suburbs of Chicago that initially formed out of a larger church in the west suburbs. We started gathering in 2013-2014 and quickly discovered a remarkable gift: honest, caring friendship enjoyed over shared meals and communal prayer. We are a congregation that cares deeply about historic Christian teaching, but our love of good sermons and thoughtful Bible studies also animates us to generous community.
Which brings us to the larger story of Redemption that makes us who we are. Our church would not be our church apart from the gracious, strong, saving work of the Triune God. The love of the Father, the grace of the Son, the fellowship of the Holy Spirit—these are the “plot points” in the largest, truest, best-est story of Redemption ever told.
