Our Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church would like to congratulate this year’s graduates on their achievements and wish them well in all their future endeavors! We applaud the Class of 2023! 

Lord Jesus, You have given gifts and talents to each of us, to be used in service to You, through our love and service to others. As young people consider their future and the career they should pursue, lead them to seek Your plan and purpose for their lives. Keep them close to You in love with You and Your Word. Help them to use their gifts and abilities in ways that will help others come to love You also. In Your name we pray. Amen.


Looking for an easy way to serve your church? Sign up to be a greeter!

We have five volunteers currently so you would only serve less than ten times a year! 

Greeters are asked to arrive at 8:30 am, pass out bulletins, introduce visitors to Pastor Stinnett, and assist members who worship in the parking lot. If you are interested in serving as a greeter, please contact Jamie Droste, Missions & Service Chair at missions@orelc.org or call the church office at 232-7575.



The LWML invites you to donate your gently used eyeglasses to benefit MOST Ministries, one of this year's LWML National Convention 'Gifts from the Heart' recipients.

MOST Ministries provide recycled eyeglasses to people living in the developing nations around the world. The cost of a pair of glasses in many developing nations can exceed a month's salary. Without assistance from MOST Ministries, hundreds of thousands of people would go without the glasses they need to work, read, or attend school. MOST Ministries often provide the only pair of eyeglasses a person will ever own.

Gently used adult-sized glasses, child-sized glasses and non-prescription sunglasses will be brought to the LWML National Convention (Milwaukee, WI.) this June by ORELC members. NO EYE CASES PLEASE. A collection basket is in the narthex sitting area thru June 11. For those wishing to make a monetary gift, please make checks out to: MOST Ministries. Direct questions to Nancy Stinnett. Thank you for your support!
