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

Upcoming Events

Voters Meeting to issue a Divine Call


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: 

After many hours of prayerful consideration, our Search Team has completed the work we have called them to do on our behalf in our search for a Settled Pastor. Being led by the Holy Spirit, the Search Team would like to present to the Congregation, the candidate(s) they feel best meets the characteristics we are seeking in our next pastor.  

I am calling a Voters Meeting to take place on Sunday, October 19th immediately following a Combined 10:00am Divine Service . Sunday School and Adult Bible Study will held at 9:00am, but may be shortened in order to accommodate.  Due to the historic nature of this meeting for Our Redeemer, and in order to allow as many members to attend, we welcome and encourage ALL members, including children to remain in the sanctuary for our meeting. As always, feel free to accompany the restless and fidgety into the Narthex, or the Nursery, and we will do our best to make sure our sound system is operating throughout the building.  

The Lord has truly blessed His people here at Our Redeemer! We pray that in His mercy, He will continue to look upon us with favor and answer our prayer for a Settled Pastor according to His good and gracious will!!

In His Service,

Jim Ferrara


Bryan Schmeling

Vice President & Search Team Leader
