Stewardship & Giving

Online Tithe and Donations to Our Redeemer

Having braced for a downturn in attendance, churches across the country have and continue to face unprecedented challenges as it pertains to COVID-19. Most, including Our Redeemer, have acted quickly to alter plans, adjust, or cancel services, all while trying to talk to members about continuing to give.

The Simply Giving Program endorsed by Thrivent Financial Bank is a simple, reliable way to make your regular contributions to Our Redeemer through automated giving.

The program is designed to help you conveniently, consistently, and joyfully give financial gifts to the ministry of Our Redeemer, particularly in these unusual times.

Click on this link and let the Simply Giving® Program help you build better stewardship by turning a simple choice into a generous response. Thank you.

Time, Talent, Treasure

Stewardship demonstrates one’s own understanding of what Christ has done for him/her.

Giving Christ our time, talents, and treasures is our living prayer of thanksgiving to Christ.

It is also our response to Him for what He has done and continues to do for us.


Welcome! Our Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church (LC-MS) offers members and visitors an easy and convenient way to support us by your tithes and offerings.

We encourage you to make your gift online, whether you attend services in person or virtually. You can make a one-time or a recurring donation, so that your generosity contributes even when you are not able to attend service. Thank you for your support!

Clean Team Ministry

We are incredibly blessed to have four dedicated Clean Teams at ORELC! These folks maintain all the rooms and hallways that Our Redeemer uses from the Sanctuary to the classrooms to the bathrooms.

If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please know that you can give as much or little time as your schedule allows, but usually only one or two hours per month.

Please speak with Sonny Ballou, Head Trustee, with any inquiry about this volunteer opportunity.
