Nursery from Birth through age 3
Our goal for the nursery ministry is to provide a clean and safe environment for our youngest generation. We want to give parents peace of mind leaving their children to our care while they attend services, and start teaching and demonstrating the core truth that we are God’s beloved creation!
Our Nursery and Preschool Ministry serves to care for your infants and toddlers in a safe and nurturing environment. Our nurseries are staffed by church members who serve on a bimonthly basis. All Children's Ministry volunteers have background checks, and the nursery team ensures that all toys, activities, and snacks are safe for your child!
Embassy Kids 4 - 12
Assisting parents in training their children in the ways of Christ.
Embassy Kids is not childcare; it is children’s ministry—and there’s a big difference! From infants through elementary, children encounter the goodness of God in a loving, fun, and safe environment that is designed just for them. A team of energetic volunteers and parents minister to our children each week with an enthusiasm that tends to rub off. Kids love our lessons, prize store, and activities!
If you’re new with us, please stop at the Hospitality table, located at the main entrance. We’d be delighted to give you a tour and assist you with checking your child in.
Embassy Student Ministries 12-20
Shaping Your Faith
Embassy Student ministries are all about relationships---we don’t care what background you have, where you go to school, or if you even go to church at all. It's our desire to build a community of young people devoted to becoming ONE with God and ONE with each other.

Embassy Students programs take place on Sunday afternoons at the Boys and Girls club from September to May.

The J.O.Y. Club, (Just Older Youth) is a ministry for people age 55 and up. We are all active and enjoying life through fellowship, friendship, and encouragement which allows each person the opportunity to share their gifts, wisdom, and knowledge with others as they continue their walk with the Lord. We have exciting activities and trips planned for all Senior’s, whether married, widowed, or single and we welcome you to be a part of building community with us and share your ideas and input.
Because life together is better
We know that The Embassy is a growing family, and it is easy to get lost in the crowd. We don’t want that for you! Let us help you make some friends here at The Embassy. Life Groups are one of the ways to connect with others and do life together. Don’t do life alone! You have a friend at The Embassy waiting to meet you.
Life Groups meet at different times and locations with activities ranging from fellowship and fun, to studying and lively discussion of the Word that is being preached in our services. Groups are available for those who need support in specific areas, those with special interests, specific preferences in age groups, and even house parties for the youth.

Marriage was conceived and born in the mind of God. Our goal is to equip couples with Biblical principals to strengthen their marriage. The Bible not only contains the answers for the healing of broken marriages, it is also God's vision and blueprint for all marriages.
Hospitality Ministry Teams
Service with a smile.
Our ushers and greeters help provide a warm welcome and friendly reception to all those attending RLCE on Sunday mornings. These people serve as the first point of contact for many first time Guests and help provide very basic information such as where things are located in the facility.
Volunteers serve on a rotating monthly basis as frequently as their monthly schedule permits. No experience is necessary and training is provided.
This is a great place to begin giving your time to others through Redeeming Love Christian Embassy.
Praise & Worship Teams
Opening us to HIS Ever-Presence
The Praise and Worship music ministry team is responsible for leading the music portion of any RLCE service or function when necessary. Praise and Worship is an important aspect of the service because it helps those attending to loosen up, shed the concerns of the world, open up their minds and their heart to the message, and more importantly to the Holy Spirit. The team is comprised of individuals with vocal or musical skills and must have a humble heart willing to serve God. Although there is a certain level of skill required to join, part of the team's mission is to help develop an individual's skills to play an instrument, sing, or lead.

If prayer has been a consistent part of your life, it would be our honor to ask you to share that blessing with us.

Embassy Productions exist to utilize each person’s unique talent in order to reach people for Jesus. Each year the Embassy produces two dinner theater productions. One at Easter known as the Bay City Passion Play, which allows the cast to live out the story that is at the very center of our faith. The second is at Christmas, called An Old Fashioned Christmas, which always shares a heartwarming story for the Season. So whether you act, sing, swing a hammer, paint, sew, promote, wait on tables, serve in the kitchen, or want to be behind the scenes, we need your help!
