Our Redeemer's is part of the Debs-Puposky Parish. We share a pastor with our sister-congregation, Trinity Lutheran in Debs. On September 1st of each year, the two churches switch worship times. This year, Our Redeemer's is worshiping at 9:00am and Trinity is worshiping at 10:30am. Please join us!
The congregation will notice a change near the altar next Sunday:
The pulpit has switched sides with the lectern.
The new arrangement improves the walking space around the kneeling rail. It also allows the rail to be moved out closer to the pews.
President Clancy takes full responsibility for the switch. He would like to give the new arrangement a try for a few Sundays. None of the pieces are permanently nailed to the floor. The change is simply an experiment to better utilize the altar space. Clancy acknowledges that change can feel uncomfortable. He asks the congregation to keep an open mind regarding the switch and he reminds the congregation that the pulpit and the lectern can go back to their original places if the change does not suitably meet the needs of worship services.
Our Redeemer's will hold its Annual Meeting after worship on Sunday January 17th.
For January 17th only, O.R. will worship at 10:30am so Pastor Mike can stay to the meeting.
Trinity will worship at 9am on Jan17th.
Everyone is encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting. Potluck will be held immediately after the meeting. Since Potluck will take place on Jan 17th, there won't be Potluck on our regular "first Sunday" January 3rd.
Please note, the newest member of the Naylor family will be baptized on January 3rd.
There will be a reception after worship to celebrate the baptism.
