Welcome to Redeemer Lutheran Church

Welcome to Redeemer Lutheran Church, also known as the “Friendly Lutheran Church.” At Redeemer  we emphasize the love of God revealed to us in His Son Jesus Christ. We are committed to the proclamation of this “Good News” through God’s Word and Sacraments. As the forgiven people of God we join together to confess our faith in word and deed. You are invited to visit us and discover how much God loves you. You will find many opportunities for personal and spiritual growth along with meaningful ways to make a difference in the world. What we cannot do individually we can do together and what we cannot do, God can do using us together as a caring Christian community sharing Jesus Christ with the world.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;Change and decay in all around I see—O Thou who changest not, abide with […]

What we are about has to do with Jesus
| April 7, 2019

This is quite true, but what about Jesus? There are two options that churches commonly take, when it comes to the centrality of Jesus as their mission: Either Jesus is firstly your example, or he is firstly your Savior. I propose that if these are in the incorrect order we will get many things wrong! […]
