Missions & Service

Busy Bags

Missions & Service reminds you that we have “Busy Bags” in the narthex for our young church attendees!

Quiet fidgets, finger puppets and board books are all loaded into an easy carry canvas bag. For older children we have independent readers books, crayons, and sketch pads.

Look in the bin under the church mailboxes and please return neatly to the bin after service. Thank you. Jamie Droste, Missions & Service Chair

Stinnetts in Ethiopia

As many of you know, Pastor Aaron Stinnett’s brother, Rev. Eric Stinnett, teaches at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The seminary is dedicated to training faithful Lutheran pastors and other church workers to serve in Ethiopia. 

If you would like to support the Stinnetts financially, please make checks payable to “Our Redeemer” and put “Stinnetts” in the memo line.  Donations can be placed in the regular offering plate. Designate “Stinnetts” in your on-line Vanco one-time special donation.

Thanks in advance for your prayers and support. Find more information about Rev. Eric's mission, biography, and additional information:  https://www.lcms.org/stinnett
