On All Saints’ Sunday we remember especially the saints of the church and the saints who have died in the last year. We are inviting you to send pictures of your saints, people you would like to remember in worship. You may send pictures via e-mail or you may bring them to the church office, and we can scan them.. The pictures will be used in a special presentation during All Saints’ worship on November 1.

Spooky Spaces Event

Join us Sunday, October 25th from 2pm – 3:30pm.
In this year of many changes and challenges, we hope to still provide a safe opportunity to children to still enjoy the fun of the fall season. We have developed a new way of doing Trunk-or-Treat safely and socially distanced. We are calling it Spooky Spaces!
Our Redeemer’s is planning a drive-thru Halloween in which members of the congregation will adopt a parking space to decorate their trunk or the area in general for families to drive through. To add to the fun, we ask that each group have a unique item that can be used as a part of a scavenger hunt for participants. We will also have outdoor photo stations decorated with seasonal décor for families to take fun pictures together at the end. Join us for the fun!
Help by signing up for a Spooky Space or donating candy. Questions?! Contact Jackie by calling the church office at 442-7842 or emailing her at [email protected]

Join Us Wednesday’s at 6:30pm

Welcome to our brand new Spark Worship service! This is a full worship service, including Lutheran liturgy, upbeat and fun music, and communion. We are hoping this will be a fun and energetic worship environment where generations of folks can intermingle and praise God together.


Our first six weeks will be in a liturgy series called Unraveled, where we explore bible stories of lives and plans unraveling. How do people in the bible respond to God’s undoing of plans? How do we respond? In a world of pandemic, this is particularly relevant.


September 16 – Luke 19:1-10 (the story of Zacchaeus)
September 23 – Exodus 5:1-2; 7:8-23 (Pharaoh’s hard heart)
September 30 – Jeremiah 29:1-7 (the exiled Israelites)
October 7 – John 4:1-29 (the woman at the well)
October 14 – John 20:19-29 (doubting Thomas)
