Common Questions We want you to feel welcome and comfortable during your visit to Christ Our Redeemer.  Here are a few common questions and answers…
 
When Should I Arrive? Our Sunday service begins at 10:00 AM.  We invite you to arrive a few minutes early to take care of your little ones, meet and greet the people who are there, and find a comfortable location in our worship area.  All of our services are blended in nature, combining long-standing traditional elements as well as more contemporary forms of expressing praise and thanks to our Lord.
 
Where Should I Go? Christ Our Redeemer is located at 1900 Pine Street in Sandpoint, Idaho.  We are on the west end of town at the corner of Lincoln and Pine Street.  We are across the street from the YMCA, and are next to Travers Park.  Our parking lot has plenty of space for families with small children, first-time guests, those with disabilities, and the health conscious who park far away to earn extra steps on their Fitbits (or other step-tracking devices).
 
What Options Are There For My Children? We are passionate about connecting kids to Jesus!  We have a nursery available in the back of the sanctuary.  During the worship service, there is a weekly Children’s message.  Following the message, Children’s Church is offered for students up to ten years old.  The students are returned following the message.  In addition, Confirmation Classes are offered for students and families generally grade four and above who wish to learn more about their relationship with the Lord and what they means as they continue to grow.
 
What Should I Wear? We’re a church for people from all walks of life.  Please wear whatever is comfortable for you.  You’ll see people dressed up in their Sunday best, as well as others in jeans, Hawaiian shirts, cowboy boots, or sandals.  Come as you are!
 
When Do You Participate In The Lord’s Supper? Christ Our Redeemer celebrates the Lord’s Supper (Communion) on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of the month.  We believe that this sacred meal is a gift from Christ to the church.  You’ll find a simple guide to the Lord’s Supper in our worship bulletins which are handed out at every service.
 
What If I’m Totally New To The Christian Faith? You have come to the right spot.  We are not here to judge you.  We’re here to share the Biblical truth of Jesus Christ and how His Gospel message of unconditional love changes everything.
