We’re glad you are here!
Our Redeemer is an intergenerational congregation where we hear the proclamation of the Gospel and serve our neighbors. We hope you will join us this Sunday.
We gather for worship on Sundays at 9:30 AM. Children are encouraged to be in worship with you and we do have a nursery available as well.
Following worship, we have Sunday School for all ages.
We also have Wednesday Evening Services that are twice per month at 6:45 PM and every Wednesday during Advent and Lent. Be sure to check our calendar for the most up to date information.
What to Expect
As you walk in the front door, you’ll be sure to be greeted by a friendly face. As you enter into the sanctuary, you’ll notice a small table with bulletins for adults and for the kids. There may also be some other things that are helpful there such as information about communion. On this table, you will also find an offering plate.
Children are encouraged to be in the sanctuary with their parents. However, we also have an unstaffed nursery available that has a live-stream of the service playing.
After the service, the acolytes will remove the flame from the altar candles and leave the sanctuary followed by the pastor. Once they have left, feel free to stay in the sanctuary and chat but be sure to make your way to our fellowship hall for coffee and refreshments.
Sunday School begins at 11 AM. You’ll probably hear one of the children excitedly ring the bell. If you have kids and you want them to participate in Sunday School, just head to the sanctuary for the opening and we’ll make sure everyone gets to the right place. Pastor’s Adult Bible Study begins at 11:10 and we meet in the library which is right next to the front door.
Our services follow a simple liturgical order that has been handed down through generations of Scandinavian Lutheran churches. That doesn’t mean you have to be Scandinavian to worship with us. It just means that it is a simplified liturgy compared to many other Lutheran churches. The benefit of a formal liturgy is that it is full of God’s Word. Few words are wasted in a liturgical service. Since we believe God creates faith through the hearing of His Word, our desire is to hear His Word a lot.
Simple liturgies also help the youngest and the oldest amongst us to worship with us. Many things we say and do are the same every week. When we regularly recite the Apostles’ Creed, Nicene Creed, the Lord’s prayer, or the sung responses, children are able to memorize and join in. Likewise, when memory begins to fade, the same words being spoken provide great comfort.
We sing both old and new music as an expression of worship to God who is timeless. There are things we can learn from ancient hymns, spiritual songs born out of the Reformation, as well as songs that were written very recently.
