"Sharing Christ's Love with the Greatest Number of People"

Redeemer Lutheran Church

April 28, 2023


Greetings in the name of our Risen Lord!

Sunday is the 4th Sunday of Easter and also known as "Good Shepherd" Sunday. We are excited to have many of our young people help lead worship at all three services. We also have a lot of activities taking place throughout the week. Please note the update on our "Food for Others" drive in this email. The announcements will give you updates on all other events.  

Sunday Worship – 8:30 am, 9:45 am, and 11:00 am

On Sunday our talented youth will offer special music at each service. We will also have a special Coffee Hour after the 8:30 am and 9:45 am services. Those who are organizing our part in McLean Day will be our hosts. Opportunities to sign up to help on McLean Day will be made available to you and/or use this link. McLean Day is on Saturday, May 20.

Important Update on "Food for Others" Drive 

We have two more weeks to collect food items before we put everything together the week of May 14. We took an inventory this week and here are the items we still need (all are to be serving-sized containers). You can also look at the complete list by clicking here.

We have collected $530 in donations. We can always use more! We will be shopping for any food items we need to make complete sets. Donations can be made to "Redeemer Lutheran Church" with a memo "Food for Others."


Redeemer Dinner Groups

Dinner groups are a fun way to get to know other people in the church. For your convenience you can sign up online or you can give us your name on Sunday morning. Look on the table in the Crossroads for the signup sheet.
