Fellowship Ministry Team is a wonderful way to meet everyone at Christ Our Redeemer. We gather together to do all the events that mean preparing, serving and eating special dinners, etc. We also have a lot of fun being involved with these projects.

“Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:1-2. We are reminded of Christ’s love for each of us-friends and strangers alike. Good news indeed to share-in even the most unlikely situations....Outreach Team

It has been said that one of the most delightful and rewarding ways to serve in a congregation is to become a part of its music ministry. Proclaiming the love and mercy of Christ through music is a privilege and a joy. At COR we are blessed to offer several opportunities in both vocal and instrumental groups. We are always ready to welcome new singers and instrumentalists to our music ministry family.
Our 35 member parish choir leads worship on non-Americana Sundays and for special services from September through the end of May. We rehearse on Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.
This is a small ensemble of six women who sing during regular Sunday services and special services as needed. They are also our ambassadors to the Temple Terrace community, singing for local service clubs and for city events.
Good News is a seven member a cappella woman’s ensemble, singing on the first Sunday of each month for the Americana Service, and for special services or community events. Their music is primarily Gospel and “old time” hymns. They rehearse on Sundays from 9:30 – 10:00 a.m.
COR (Christ’s Own Ringers) Ringers rehearse on Thursdays from 7:30 – 9:00 pm. We have a full 5 octave set of Mallmark handbells and 3 octaves of chimes. We are always looking for ringers and are willing to train anyone interested.
One Accord is the group that leads worship on the first Sunday of each month in what we call the Americana Service. Violin, Viola, Oboe, Stringed Bass, Mandolin, Guitar, Banjo, and Piano plus a quartet of vocalists make up the ensemble. They lead worship in a vibrant and enthusiastic style.
In addition to these groups, we have many fine instrumentalists who give of their time and talent to accompany the choirs or help lead worship on Sundays. We welcome anyone with the heart to serve in our music ministry.
