FELLOWSHIP & SERVICE
Contact: Deb Erickson
When choosing materials, please sign the card inside the book and place it in the card file that is located on the shelves on the east wall of the library. If anyone would like a specific book, tape, etc. to be a part of the library, please inform the church secretary of your request, and all due effort will be made to see that it becomes a part of the library collection.
Contact: Bob James
All men are invited to join Christ's Crew on the third Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. The main focus of this group is to gather as Christian men to discuss various issues we face as men, and let the Bible speak to us for insights we can apply in daily living. This group also performs service projects as needed to address requests that are left in the "Needs Box" in the narthex.
Quilting for Christ
"Quilting for Christ's Children" is the quilting group here at Our Redeemer and we do just that! We make quilts for Christ's children and distribute them through church missions such as Lutheran World Relief and assorted local organizations, as well as to our newlywed members, baptized children through age 5, and fire or other disaster victims. Our group consists of sewers and non-sewers alike. We meet every other week during the school year from September through May. The schedule of meetings is published in the church newsletter and bulletins. Contact Bev Callahan for more information at 247-7374 or Ethel Toewe at 328-5471.
Life Ministry Coordinators:
Lutherans For Life is a national organization whose mission is to witness to the sanctity of human life through education based on the Word of God. We seek opportunities to educate and motivate all groups of Our Redeemer for service as Christian witnesses and citizens on life and family issues.
The Telephone Prayer Chain is comprised of members who are willing to pray for needs of others and also prayers of thanksgiving when requests are made. The key person passes along the requests exactly as received and they are always treated with complete confidentiality. It is each person's responsibility to pray and to immediately contact the next person on the chain. God wants his children to pray and he promises to hear and answer our prayers according to His perfect will. There is a sign up sheet at the Hospitality Booth for anyone interested in becoming an important link in the prayer chain.
Wellness Ministry Team
Parish Nurses: Greta Crowe and Mary Hepola
We are very fortunate at Our Redeemer to have 2 Parish Nurses. Greta and Mary visit with members that are sick or hospitalized and offers spiritual support and prayer. Please inform the church office if you wish to receive a visit from a Parish Nurse. Greta and Mary are also valuable resources to the Wellness Ministry Committee, offer prayer, along with the Elders, to worshipers after Communion on Sunday mornings, and coordinates monthly blood pressure checks.
The Wellness Ministry Team was formed to be a support system to the Parish Nurse, as well as to address areas of concern from the congregation related to physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness. As a result of a congregational survey, we are now offering monthly blood pressure checks, have held CPR classes, and are planning future discussions on various topics.
OUR REDEEMER LUTHERAN LADIES
Co-Chairpersons: Angie Montana and Judy Bylkas
LADIES PRAYER BREAKFAST
All ladies are welcome to attend our monthly breakfast. We meet at 9:00 a.m. on the 2nd or 3rd Saturday of the month (except for the summer months of June-August) at a local restaurant. It is a good time to get to know one another and to share any prayer concerns. The notice will be in the weekly bulletin, in the overhead screen announcements, and the newsletter calendar as a reminder.
All women of the congregation are assigned to a serving group. There are three serving groups at Our Redeemer that provide food and labor to serve meals after funerals and other special events held at the church. This is a very special ministry of the church and we thank you for your participation. Please see the list of serving groups attached. If you have questions or concerns, please contact one of your co-chairs.
