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


By God’s grace and the loving generosity of a member, we are thankful to be receiving the gift of a new, heirloom quality Allen Classical Organ, which is scheduled to be installed on Wednesday (July 14).

In gratitude and joy, we invite you to join us for a special Organ Dedication Worship Service at 9:15 AM on Sunday, July 25, and for a reception following the service.

The organ is given to the glory of God and in loving memory of our brother in Christ, Dr. Edwin August Boger, Sr.



Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering (Gathering) provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God’s people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith and their Lutheran identity. 

During the 5 days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God’s Word, worship, service and fellowship with others from across the synod. This event is organized by LCMS Youth Ministry in Saint Louis, MO. 

Please email Mrs. Droste at christianed@orelc.org if you are thinking about becoming a Youth Participant at the National 2022 Gathering!
