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.

Slow Down

This is the story of the Rag Man
| February 10, 2019

This month I want to share with you a story that I find powerful. Ragman by Walter Wangerin, Jr. I saw a strange sight. I stumbled upon a story most strange, like nothing my life, my street sense, my sly tongue had ever prepared me for. Hush, child. Hush, now, and I will tell it […]

These phrases — Witness, Mercy, Life Together — illustrate how the church lives and works together to proclaim the Gospel and to provide for our brothers and sisters in Christ in our congregation, community, and throughout the world. And in all we do, Christ is at the center, leading us, sustaining us, keeping us focused on our mission. This will never change.
