We set out to make disciples and gather them into a local church. That mission birthed Redeeming Life Church, and that's what we're still doing. It's tough work.
We're in an unpopular location in the Salt Lake Valley. Christians don't flock to the west side of Salt Lake; in fact, most of them try to avoid the area. Our church is not the hip, cool church-plant that attracts hip, cool Christians. Nope. Redeeming Life is more like an oasis of light in a dark place that seeks to bring the redemption Jesus Christ to broken, messy lives in need of a savior. Most the people who first walk through the doors at Redeeming Life aren't yet followers of Jesus. And they need a lot. That's why we're here.
But much like the local churches we read about in Acts and the epistles, we are growing in maturity and have a long way to go. The believers among our faith-family are lovely servants who have to step into many roles at Redeeming Life and carry the financial burden with lots of help from supporters from other parts of the country. Like Paul's ministry, we presently depend upon the prayer and financial support of other faithful Christians and churches.
We need your help to continue our ministry on the west side of Salt Lake. It's a place with very few Christians and even fewer churches. It's an unreached place.
Please consider making a one-time, tax-deductible donation before the end of 2017. We depend on your faithful support. And please pray about partnering with us in prayer and regular support in 2018.
We are so thankful for all our partners and supporters. We couldn't do this without you. Thank you!
For the Kingdom!
Pastor Bryan Catherman
