Youth Announcements

There will be Acolyte Training for all interested children on the 18th of October before service. (8:30am)   This quick instructional session will review the duties of lighting and extinguishing the candles, taking offering, etc.  The Council encourages all the children of the church to participate.  Simply attend the session.  If your children want to participate but cannot attend this first session, please notify Pastor Mike or Sabrina so another session can be scheduled.  Thank you to all the children that volunteer in our church.
Confirmation Class needs to be organized soon.  Please contact Pastor Mike if your child is entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade.  A parent meeting will be scheduled to discuss the best time to hold class.

Invitation to Joy

The second Training Event for Invitation to Joy will be at First Lutheran Bemidji on October 17th (Saturday).  Registration is at 8:30 AM and the event begins at 9:00 AM.   Cost is only $10.00, snacks, coffee and lunch are included in that fee.

Members of both Our Redeemer's and Trinity attended last January.  Everyone is encouraged to go to this event.    

This year our topic is Hospitality.  There are two presenters.  The first is Pastor Laura Natwick, Assistant to the Bishop in our Northwest Minnesota Synod and her topic is entitled"How to Keep People from Coming to Your Church."   Rev. Natwick is going to use Humor to teach us what not to do and share with us some great opportunities for us to be warm and inviting congregations.   The second session features Rev. Deb Stehlin, Director for Evangelical and Mission for the Minneapolis Area Synod.   Pr. Stelin will help us with some ideas on how to bring our hospitality to our neighbors.
