Redeemer’s sacred holiday season was brightened by the display of gifts this Sunday for the Church’s Adopt a Family program. These gifts will go to families with financial needs, so that their children may have a happy Christmas.
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.
The Redeemer Christian Book Club is moving to Sunday morning. It meets the 2nd and 4th Sunday at 9 AM in the RLC kitchen. Check the right sidebar of this web site for the latest selection.

“For everything there is a season… a time to keep, and a time to throw away.”
Have you read this before in the Bible? Umm… even directions about what to do with your “STUFF” is found in the Holy Bible. Think of your home, your workshop, your automobile, your workplace. Life gets so busy that we may have trouble keeping things organized. We all have excuses. Yet, the reality is that stuff gets in the way of living.
The reality is all that we have, and all that we are, belongs to God. Keeping things organized while caring for the stuff in our midst is an important part of stewardship. The summer is moving quickly, and it will be fall before we know it. May now be an opportune time for you to consider the stuff in your midst?
I’m focusing on my own stuff right now. I have even given myself a deadline when I hope to have gone through all of my own stuff. I’ve written 3 questions to consider for all of the stuff in my midst. Maybe these are good questions for you also as you consider your own “stuff.”
If I die tomorrow, will the stuff I’m keeping make a difference and will it be of any use to anyone else?
Do I use it?
Do I need it?
If the answer is “YES” to any of the three questions, have a place for everything and put everything it its place. After all, this is good stewardship.
In the love of Christ, Pastor Scottie B-

The Redeemer Book club meets at the Church on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. The goal of the club is to introduce participants to Christian literature that they might not be familiar with, but that provokes thought and deepens faith.
The next book, Mere Christianity, is by C. S. Lewis. Learn the rational basis for Christianity. Borrow it from your local library, or buy at your local bookstore or online.
To plug in on this book, get started on the book before the next session on July 9 at 7 pm.
Our next book is “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek” by Annie Dillard, starting August 13.

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.
