Spontaneous Sabbath Toolkit

the central place for streams, links and resources during this season

Update on our response to COVID-19 - Please watch the video!

We are incredibly thankful to be the Church together. We love you and are continually blessed to serve alongside such a faithful, committed and gift community of people. Even though we can’t gather on Sundays right now, we are here for you as pastors and staff. We’ve been praying fervently for you all and for our ministry here in Flagstaff.Our friends at Redemption Tempe have coined the term “spontaneous sabbath” for this season. An opportunity for us to slow down and with intentionality to connect with various aspects of life that maybe we’ve been too busy for. To encourage you in this endeavor we have put together this Spontaneous Sabbath Toolkit with resources and links for you and family to continue healthy Kingdom practices and cultivate new ones. Please check it regularly as we will continue to add new helpful resources and ways to connect.

Love you,

Redemption Flagstaff Elders & Staff
