Items needed:

 On Sunday mornings at 10:40 am in June, join "Online Coffee Hour" to re-connect with Redeemer friends! Jane Schroeher, with the Friends in Faith Ministry Team, is facilitating. Open to all ages!  Invite your Coffee Corner table-mates - it's the next best thing to being there!

Join with Communion at Home...

New Director of Music, Steve Peters

 
Steve's first Sunday will be June 7th. We look forward to his music ministry leadership!
 
Thank you to the Search Committee, Chorale and Rejoice Teams and Marilyn Wahlstrom for their time and support during the interim period.
 

 Art Wall: 

 
We are looking for a way to add some visual beauty to the outside of the Redeemer building. Draw, paint or color and post it at Redeemer.

There will be gallon size Ziploc bags available to put your art in and clip it to a wire on the south side of the building. Looking forward to your creations.  First week is open theme.  Second week is Fishing week.  Create Fishing pictures, or a picture of you with your Great Catch! 

 

Fishing Club:

 
Gene Ruehle has started a Fishing Club for young folk!  Please contact him if you are interested.  There will be fun and fantastic ideas coming to those on the Fishing Club list! 

(Letter from Gene)...Hey fishing people!
Let's have some fun!  May 15th  (always two weekends before the Memorial weekend) is the opening of the fishing season.  Would it be possible for us to show our talents by digging out our old fishing pictures or/and drawing some fish pictures?
Redeemer is starting an outdoor art wall on the south wall of the church.  Starting May 15, you can display no more than three (3) pieces of your work at one time.  Your parents will keep score! 
Start looking for photos of fishing from the past.  Also, start drawing dream  drawings of that big one that got away or the ones you are going to catch.  Good luck!
Recruit your friends to get involved.  Let's cover the walls!

- Gene :)

 
 

Whine on Wednesdays

 
All parents are invited to join via ZOOM for a judgement-free zone for parents to commiserate, celebrate and support each other during these challenging times.

The first session will be on May 13 at 7:30 p.m. - bring your favorite beverage and we hope to "see" you then! Email   to sign up and receive ZOOM link!

 

Celebrating our Graduating High School Seniors

 
Even though we may not be gathering together to celebrate our High School Seniors, Redeemer will still be gifting them with a beautiful quilt made by our Quilting Ministry. 

This year is especially hard for these students, so we would like to do something extra to honor them...

* If you would like to mail a Congratulations Graduate card, email Dona at the Main Office for a list of addresses. (The info was also emailed out.)

* A Celebration Parade is being organized to drive past graduate homes at noon on an upcoming Sunday with signs, honking and fun! Watch for more details to come soon. 

 

WORSHIP AND DAILY PRAYER VIDEOS NOW ON THE REDEEMER WEBSITE! CATCH-UP, RE-WATCH OR SHARE WITH A FRIEND...                         

We have been using the Facebook platform to record and share our LIVE Sunday, Mid-Week and Easter Services, but know not everyone uses or has access to Facebook.

We are excited to share that all the past Worship and Daily Prayer Videos from the past month and a half are now available via the Redeemer Website Homepage, or you can access/share the links directly to the video pages.

We look forward to when we can worship together, but until then we are blessed to "gather" on-line!
