Redeemer is dedicated to nurturing the awareness of God’s presence in our world, and to sharing our blessings with others.
We believe that God’s grace is given to all people in manifold ways all the time, but especially in the love and mercy of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The world around us needs to know about Jesus’ gracious and healing presence, and we try to embody that presence by sharing with others.
We nurture the awareness of Jesus' presence and share our blessings through weekly worship, education experiences, fellowship activities and socially minded charitable activities. We are committed to the Gospel message of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We are linked to and support financially the ministries of pan-Lutheran agencies, such as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), Lutheran World Relief, the Lutheran World Federation, the ELCA’s World Hunger appeal, and the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.
Redeemer's Vision Statement (2015):
As Christians, called to serve our Lord in our unique time and place, we believe our church community must continually move beyond our church walls. We seek to honor our past as an involved community church by challenging ourselves to more vibrantly share our faith, and its blessings, with those around us. As we approach our 150th anniversary in 2017, we strive to reach a new level of Christian fellowship and spiritual engagement, based upon our faith-committed congregation, inspiring pastoral leadership and worship experience, a strong multi-generational church family and a tradition of outreach to others.
Through the use of our resources of time and talent, we will serve our members and our community by:
Worship and Christian Education
As Jesus said in the Gospel of Mark (10:45), "The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..." With God's help through the power of the Holy Spirit, humble dedication to achieving our unified vision will result in the growth of our relationship with Christ, because of a renewed emphasis on building up and supporting one another in a strong family of faith and reaching out to serve, educate, and nurture God's people.
