Welcome to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church's website. We are an active, growing congregation. The center of our Church's life is the Lord Jesus Christ. Because He died that we might live, we respond in worship. Because there are many who have not heard this good news, we proclaim it. And because our Lord served us through His death and resurrection, we live to serve Him and one another. >> About Our Redeemer
