Bible Class  | 10:40am | Every Sunday

.Join us as we continue exploring the New Testament with Pastors Mark Gruner and Roger Schwarze!

This study is different from what we have done in the past. We will look at every book in the New Testament, one at a time, to see how the authors told the story of the early church. No, we will not do it all in one week. We will do it one book at a time until we have looked at all the books. So stick with us!

Many Faces-Many Stories of the White Bear Lake Area

In the late Summer/ Fall of 2020, several Redeemer members took part in discussions called “Creating Safe and Sacred Spaces for Conversations Around Race”. This group focused on studying the historical context of racism, how to have nonjudgmental conversations about race, and had presentations on implicit bias. They also read the book, Waking Up White by Debby Irving. People who participated in this study expressed interest in continuing learning on racism and equity. Pastor Nate felt that a good next step would be to find a community group we could partner with to continue our learning.

Recently, Pastor Nate and Jane Schroeher were connected to Many Faces of the White Bear Lake Area through one of its members. Many Faces of the White Bear Lake Area is “a collaboration of community organizations seeking to build community by providing opportunities to listen, learn, reflect, & engage in conversations on equity, diversity, and inclusion and to better understand the role we each play in creating a more welcoming and inclusive community.” After participating in a few meetings, Pastor Nate decided to partner with Many Faces and continue to explore collaboration between Many Faces and Redeemer. Many Faces plans community events, many of which are free.

For more information on Many Faces- Many Stories community events and partners, visit their Facebook webpage: (20+) Many Faces of the White Bear Lake Area | Facebook. More information will be coming about ways Redeemer will be partnering with Many Faces and how our congregation can get involved.
 Interested in a Many Faces community event? Check out their Jim Crow of the North: A White Bear Lake Area Viewing & Panel Discussion on April 29 at 6:30pm. Click HERE to register for free.
