Today Tom Schmidt, Redeemer's Pastoral Resident, was preaching at both services, so I took the opportunity to take my family to The Church in DeKalb for worship. TCD is the first church plant to come out of Redeemer and has been led by Pastor Jamie Page from the beginning. TCD is a strong and growing gospel preaching and disciple making church in DeKalb, IL.
I love visiting diferent churches' worship gatherings to hear the gospel in a different voice and to learn from their approach to corporate worship. Today I was not only strengthened in the gospel and the mission of the church through the liturgy and the word of God, but I was also encouraged to see the gospel at work in a very diverse congregation. Jesus really does continue to build his church, and visiting other congregations is a great way to see it.
