In response to the overflowing love of God, Redeemer Lutheran Church is a community of God's people gathered to worship, learn, and minister to the needs of those in and beyond the congregation. Working toward these purposes, we are called to share His love and invite others to Christ.

After just 4 days, the church’s picnic shelter has taken shape.


The final touches to the Picnic Shelter at Redeemer are currently under construction: The Fireplace, The Walkway to the Shelter, and the Poured Concrete will soon be complete and will make ready this beautiful center for activity.  Be ready for the dedication and fun times together.  God will be glorified with this new way for us to build community.  This picnic shelter will provide a new opportunity for loving God by loving others while enjoying this wonderful new venue.  We are almost complete and ready to  share our faith, fellowship and fun. 

Donations for final options are still being received.

The 12 steps with Christ the Redeemer

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30)

Join us for: “The 12 steps with Christ the Redeemer", a powerful two hour life changing presentation that inspires as well as entertains.

Sunday, November 16th

Dinner at 6 pm (Covered Dish)

Meeting at 6:30 pm

Our purpose is to join in fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the “12 Steps with Christ the Redeemer.”

With the blessing of our congregation the "12 Steps with Christ the Redeemer" establishes a safe haven in which the hurting, neglected, and unheard may seek the support, love, acceptance, forgiveness and affirmation of others who have suffered and recovered.

The catalog of behaviors from which we and our loved ones suffer includes:

  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Work achievement and success
  • Money addictions, such as overspending, gambling, hoarding
  • Control issues over people, places and things
  • Overeating
  • Approval dependency (the need to please people)
  • Rescuing our children, significant others, family members
  • hypochondria
  • Over exercising
  • Trying to look good on the outside
  • Excessive intellectualizing
  • Preoccupation with the form and the rules of religion, rather than benefiting  from the spiritual message
  • Perfectionism
  • Materialism

Is there any suffering listed above that you might identify with, either in your life or in a loved one’s life? Come, hear and see possibilities for making a difference that may allow you or a loved one to laugh, love, cry and jump for joy!

Our prayer is that God will use this program to guide our steps as we strive to move forward in His name and "…in His steps." 1 Peter 2:21

Music will be provided by Singer-songwriter and teacher Kyle Matthews who has been in demand throughout his 25 year career. His unique combination of inventive songwriting and spoken-word presentations bridge the gap between education and entertainment, setting him apart as an ideal concert artist, conference and retreat leader.

Doug Messer memorial

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

A Redeemer Reminder – a celebration of Doug Messer’s life will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church on Saturday October 25th at 2:30 p.m.. The family will receive friends at Redeemer from 12 to 1:15 p.m. before the service. Wanda says it would be nice to have finger food items at church after the service instead of bringing items to her. She thinks she will have more than she can use up. So please, bring finger food items on Saturday and after the service.  We will have a time of fellowship together in the Redeemer fellowship hall after the service.

…an idea for consideration in reference to the Stewardship (responsible use) of our time

Are you looking for company? Are you looking for encouragement? Are you looking to encourage others?  What kind of activities fill your week?

Beginning in September, you are invited to come to family night at

Redeemer. We will begin this September 3rd – November 19th and seek the Lord’s guidance for additional direction. We will begin at 5:30pm with a meal that will end at 6:10 p.m. From 6:15 to about 6:55 p.m., we will have an Cross-generational Bible Study together. Our Schedule will follow the school calendar. Please mark your calendars and plan to take part in family night. Be encouraged and remember,

"The best way to cheer yourself up is to cheer up someone else."

- Mark Twain

We will have a great time together in the Spirit of the Lord. When two or more gather together and the Holy Spirit is there, it will be a blessing.

Yours in Christ,

Scottie Burkhalter, pastor

" … you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."

Acts 1:8
