Worship Tech Coordinator Needed
Know anyone with a knack for audio-visual production? Redeemer is looking for a worship technology coordinator to manage all the audio and visual components of worship. This will be a paid part-time position, 4 hours on Sunday mornings and perhaps two more hours at other times in the week. Contact Scott Costello at

Open Hands Food Rescue Volunteering
We are in need of volunteers for either a Saturday or a Sunday from June through December. The commitment only takes a couple of hours on a Saturday or a Sunday. Duties include picking up food at Target in Shoreview at 1:45 PM and delivering it to Bethlehem Lutheran in Saint Paul. Volunteers will then work with staff members to help sort the food in preparation for daily meals. If you are volunteering for the first time, please contact Ellen Reeves at 651-482-8671 or Returning volunteers will be sent a sign up sheet.

Worship on the Farm

Redeemer Runners!
Thank you to the Redeemer Runners for your recent Relay for Life ministry!

Thank You Facilities Committee!
If you see a Facilities Committee Member be sure to thank them for their ministry. They have put in much time this summer taking care of our building and grounds.

Thank You
To my church family (and I say "family" with all the depth of meaning the world implies) your perpetual support and prayers have meant the world to me. I am overwhelmed by all the many cards, gifts, visits, phone calls, and even rides during my time of healing. May each of you be as blessed as I have been these past few months. Thank you! In faith and love, Barb Christensen
We received and heard your feedback about not using the screens last week. We will return to using them in a limited fashion until  September when it will be all systems go or a return to their full use. We are using this temporary experiment as a means to become more familiar with the ELW and to enjoy singing with music to follow. 

Bulletin Changes
We continue to strive for the best bulletin format possible in our strive to enhance communication.  This Sunday is a different format for us to review. Please note that the order of worship is on the back side of the bulletin.

Share Your Photos!
If you are at a Redeemer event or participating in a Redeemer ministry, please take photos and share them with Laura Devore so they can be posted on Facebook.       

Newsletter deadline
Reminder! The September newsletter submission deadline is August 15. Please be sure to send any submissions to by that date. Thanks!

Sunday School
Sunday School starts September 15! Please help us resupply the teacher's resource room. We need the following: tape, glue bottles, cotton balls, paper lunch sacks (brown and white), ink stamp pads, craft feathers, jingle bells, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, construction paper, and watercolor paints. Next time you are shopping, consider picking up some school supplies! Bring them to the church office. Thanks!

Prayer Partners!
Please keep your prayer partners in your prayers during the busy summer weeks! Check out the new bulletin boards across from the nursery.

Thank You! 
The High School St. Louis Mission Trippers thank all of you who prayed and supported us financially this summer. We had an AWESOME week serving and learning. We are working on a format to tell you more about our experiences. Check out the photo board in the Atrium today!
