The Children's & Youth Education Ministry Team is starting a mom's group!!!! This will give our Redeemer moms a chance to eat, drink and fellowship together as we follow the Where Moms Connect curriculum. This is a year long program starting with A Year of Blessing. Some topics include: how to be grateful, helping your children discover their gifts, how to be happier, service projects for families, declutter your life, and handling stress. Members can take turns hosting and leading sessions each month.

If you are interested in joining this group, please email the office at office@redeemerindianola.org .
We need feedback on:
  • If you would like to meet once or twice a month.
  • If you want a set schedule every month or a flexible schedule that changes depending on the availability of the group.
  • Any suggestions for a fun and catchy name.

A big thank you to all those that participated in our first ever Parents' Night Out event! It was a great success and everyone (adults, kids, and sitters) had a fun time!

A very special thanks goes to our volunteer sitters: Mike & Nancy Baethke, Katelyn & Madison Borlaug, Julia Hagen, Diane Marshall, Paula Schultz, and Bonnie Zimmerman.

We hope to do another Parents' Night Out this summer!

Thank you to Corbin Berg for taking the most recent collection of HyVee receipts to Wilder Elementary! Keep saving those receipts as they benefit the local schools!
