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.

The mission of  Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is to assist each woman of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world. 


“GOD CONNECTS” — The Most Important Teachings of the Bible

Beginning on the first Sunday in October (Oct. 4), our Sunday morning Adult Bible Class will begin a study entitled, “God Connects.”  This twelve-week study provides an overview of the most important teachings of the Bible.  In this course, teaching by Pastor Stinnett will be supplemented by video segments from Lutheran Hour Ministries.

This class is a great refresher for members, and it also serves as an adult confirmation class to prepare people for membership at Our Redeemer.  All are welcome and encouraged to participate!

Ladies, all ages, come join us on Wednesdays beginning October 14 at 7pm for the next installment of Our Redeemer’s Women’s Bible Study Group! We are so excited to share that we will be doing a topical study from Concordia Publishing House (CPH.org) entitled, “Waiting, a Bible study on Patience, Hope and Trust” by Sharla Fritz.

We will do our study entirely on the platform, “Zoom” for the home computer. The study will be recorded each week for those who cannot make it on Wednesdays, so you can follow along on your own time. 

Please contact Lay Deacon, Sue Smith (deacon@orelc.org) to register for the class as soon as possible and reserve your book. Cost of the study guide is $10. This study will help us navigate the strange times we are in, especially while we wait for the Covid vaccine.
