In early February, 2008, a group of individuals and families met together to consider joining with one another to begin a new church in Little Rock. This group shared a common vision for a church where the Bible is clearly and simply taught, where people join together for heartfelt worship, and where individuals and families are challenged to live out their faith by loving and serving others. We longed to be part of a community of faith that is anchored solidly in what the Bible teaches, that is culturally aware, and that seeks to tell others about Jesus and to help them become fully devoted followers of Christ.
From that beginning, Redeemer Community Church was born. We agreed to meet each week for worship on Saturday nights. Arrangements were made to use the chapel at Lutheran High School each week, and the first worship service was held on February 9, 2008. Each week, we come together to sing a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary songs, to study the Word of God as it is taught verse by verse and to share the Lord’s Supper together.
