Welcome to Our Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church! We organize our thinking and doing into four basic areas of focus: Home, Church, Groups and Others. These four areas are interconnected and work together motivated by the love of Christ.

Announcements, Updates and Upcoming Events


The Lord’s Prayer – Praying as Our Lord Taught Us.  

Surveys show – and our own hearts confirm – that most Christians are not satisfied with their prayer life. Something similar could be said about the Lord’s Prayer. We treasure this prayer as a gift from Christ our Lord. But don’t we also find it easy to say the words of this prayer without grasping how each part of it applies to our personal lives and needs? Beginning this Sunday, and continuing up to Easter, we will be looking closely at this prayer the Lord has given us. As we consider more deeply what we’re praying, may we grow in our appreciation of what a great gift the Lord's Prayer is — and may our prayer lives be enriched!

Adult Bible Class follows Divine Worship at 10:45AM and can be viewed on ORELC Facebook Live or archived on ORELC YouTube channel.
