If you've been away from the church for a while and you're looking for a place to renew your love for Jesus, He says, “Come Unto Me!”
If you're new to the area and seeking a new family of faith, He says, “Come Unto Me!”
If you've never known much about Jesus, but you know this life has to have more meaning than it does now, He says, “Come Unto Me!”
If you desire a place where children and families can connect through worship, Sunday School, Christian education-Redeemer Lutheran School, He says, “Come Unto Me!"
If you are searching for a church home where people are welcomed to faith in Jesus Christ, equipped with a maturing faith through Word and Sacrament, where Christ Himself invites you to, “Come Unto Me,” we welcome you with open arms.
We hope your time spent here is a blessing!

I’m seeking out People of Passion to help our congregation better reach out into our community. People of Passion are individuals who feel strongly about reaching our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Passion is needed in three areas:
People of Passion join together in activities that help our church open doors for the Gospel into our community. The first activity that we are doing is participating in a Prayerwalk on Sunday, October 9th during the Sunday School hour.
In hundreds of cities across the globe, ordinary believers are prayerwalking through the streets of their communities. They pray while walking, with eyes open for the spiritual awakening God is bringing. There is no set pattern or proven formula. Prayerwalkers have set out with every imaginable style. There is nothing magical about praying while walking. God’s Spirit is simply helping us to pray in the midst of the very settings in which we expect Him to answer our prayers. We instinctively draw near to those for whom we pray. Getting up close to the community focuses our prayer. We sharpen our prayers by concentrating on specific homes and families. But we enlarge our praying as well, crying out for entire communities to know God’s healing presence. Prayerwalks give us a simple way to fill the streets with prayer. Many are praying city-size prayers while ranging throughout their towns with disciplined regularity in small bands of two or three. In limited access countries, thousands of “tourists” walk the streets interceding for the lost in their own communities. Thus prayerwalkers keep near the lost in order to touch them with the Gospel and transforming service. Quiet triumphs often follow as God changes the city day by day and house by house.
Join me on Sunday, October 9th for a prayerwalk through the neighborhoods surrounding Our Redeemer. We will meet in the church sanctuary at 9:30 am for brief instructions and to divide up into groups of two and three and cover our community in prayer.
Having experienced the grace and love of God through Christ in our own lives. may we join together with other People of Passion in opening doors for the Gospel in our community!
