The Weekly

ALBANY:

“You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
Matthew 5:14-16 NLT

ANNOUNCEMENTS/REMINDERS:

Family in Need 
Attention Redeemer family! It has come to our attention that there is another family in need of day to day assistance. We are asking for 1 or 2 volunteers who would be willing mentor another family as they get acclimated to living in the U.S. Please email Lauri Bermudez at laurib@nycap.rr.com if you are interested or know of anyone who might be.

VBS Registration – Updated!
Hey parents! To register your kiddo for VBS 2017, please go to www.uptownkids.tv/vbs. You don’t want to miss this opportunity! Cost of registration is $15.00 per student. Deadline for pre-registration is June 30th.

Encounter Camp Registration – Updated!
$50.00 down payments are due ASAP! Payments can be made through the offering (mark envelope “camp payment”), the office mail box located near the church offices, or see Pastor Jacob and his team.

Student Travel and Exchange Program (STEP 2017) 
Approximately 25 students from the Basque Country of Northern Spain will be welcomed to the Capital Region on July 3rd for about 3 1/2 weeks. We are seeking families to host 10 of these 14-17 year old teenagers for this unique cultural and educational experience. We believe this is an excellent opportunity to impact young people who mostly come from homes/environments where the gospel is not shared or known. The “nations” are coming to us. They go back home and remember the songs we sing, make some good connections, and have a seed planted, watered and in some cases come to faith. If you are interested or know of anyone who would be, please contact Kelvin Sapp at kelvin.sapp@gmail.com or (518) 894-5716.
