Elizabeth City, NC refers to itself as the Harbor of Hospitality. Church of the Redeemer serves as a Spiritual Harbor of Hospitality for all who come through its doors. We hope that the same hospitality God shows to us in Jesus Christ overflows to all who visit the church and to the wider community. In our life together, we emphasize the authority of Scripture, the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the family of faith. Jesus’ invitation urging people to “Come” echoes in all of the services and ministries at Church of the Redeemer. Jesus explained to his followers that whatever we do to even the least of our brothers and sisters we do unto him. By serving each other, other Christians and those in the world that God is calling, we believe we are feeding Jesus, clothing Jesus, healing Jesus, visiting Jesus and blessing Jesus everyday. We believe the greatest hospitality we can show to people is to lift Jesus up that He might draw all to Himself through the preaching of the gospel and faithful administration of the sacraments. We rely on the empowering of the Holy Spirit and the gracious gifts for ministry he distributes to all who are saved through Jesus. You are invited, welcomed and encouraged to come and experience Jesus’ love in our spiritual home. Church of the Redeemer, 207 Hwy 343 South, Camden, NC 27921, 252-337-7177 Map of location

A Prayer After Ministry
Lord Jesus, thank you for sharing with me your wonderful ministry of life. Thank you for the wonders of your works that I have seen and experienced today. I realize that the sickness, evil, sin and death that I encounter are more than my humanity can bear. So cleanse me of any sadness, negativity, despair or pain that I have picked up.
If my ministry has tempted me to anger, impatience, depression, bitterness or other sinful thoughts or emotions, cleanse me of those temptations and replace them with love, joy, peace, gentleness, kindness, patience and purity of heart.
If any evil spirits have attached themselves to me or oppress me in any way, I command you, spirits of darkness and forces of evil to depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ for Him to deal with as He will. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over my spirit, soul and body.
Come, Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me anew with your power, love and joy; fill me with abundant life and health.
Holy Father, I ask you through Jesus Christ to please send your holy angels to minister to me and my family, and to guard and protect us from all evil, harm, sickness and injury. Send and empower your angels to keep us safe and to grant us peace and rest. Amen.
I praise you now and forever, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.
