Church of the Week: Redeemer Church, Hamilton, OH

This past Sunday I had the opportunity to visit Redeemer Church, an Evangelical Covenant Church on the northeast side of Hamilton--just off Rt. 4 near the Butler Tech school and Walden Pond community. The congregation dates to 1892 and moved to their current location in 1963.
As I entered with my wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren Calleigh and Ryder,  we were all warmly welcomed and quickly found our way to the inviting children's wings, where Calleigh and Ryder were quickly signed in and made themselves at home.

The 11 a.m. worship service, held in the Family Life Center (the earlier "Heritage Service" is held in the sanctuary) began on time and was ably led by four instrumentalists and five vocalists. In fact, on the last song of the worship set, I thought the bass playing would transport us all to the seventh heaven.
Pastor Rev. Dr. Kim Katterheinrich took ample time to hear prayer requests from the room of a hundred or so worshipers and then continued a series of teachings on spiritual gifts.

Having had a number of fine associations with the Evangelic Covenant Church, a fast-growing, multiethnic denomination in the U.S. and Canada, I was glad for the opportunity to discover this seemingly solid, growing congregation just twenty minutes from our home.

Redeemer Church is located at 3431 Hamilton Middletown Rd., Hamilton, OH 45011.
