Our Redeemer is in need of your help to continue care of our beautiful church property.

The sun is shining! The birds are chirping! The grass is growing! Do you know what that means?

The Trustees need your green thumb to take care of a flower bed / landscape plot on the church grounds. The property map is in the narthex for signups. Returning volunteers should re-sign up for their favorite plot please.

Ask any question-the Trustees are here to help you.

LCMS responds to SCOTUS decision on ‘Dobbs v. Jackson’


On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The court overturned Roe v. Wade by asserting that the Constitution does not confer a right to abortion and returned the issue to the states.

The people of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) have always advocated for the value of human life, which is made in the image of God. Thus, the church rejoices in this ruling while also praying for those who are hurting and afraid.

For more information on the Synod’s response, read:
• A statement from LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison;
• A statement from LCMS Life Ministry; and
• A joint letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland from Harrison and the presidents of the WELS and ELS regarding increased violence against churches, pregnancy resource centers and pro-life organizations.

An statement from New England District President Pastor Robert Beinke can be read in the Sunday (July 3) Worship folder.

From the LCMS Office of the President: Working with European churches to help Ukraine

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The violence in Ukraine continues. Those in Ukraine and those fleeing to neighboring countries face great need.

Our Office of International Mission — especially through our Eurasia region and the Rev. James Krikava, the Synod’s associate executive director of Eurasia and Asia Operations — is working with partner churches, missionaries and others in Europe to help care for those fleeing Ukraine. Krikava has been working with Bishop Serge Maschewski of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ukraine (ELCU) to assist the people of the ELCU who remain in Ukraine, including pastors who continue to care for people.

Please encourage your congregations to pray for Ukraine. You can also share with them the following story, which includes opportunities for giving to this necessary work.

As we repent and join together in meditation about our Savior’s precious death and resurrection, we also pray for and care for all those for whom Christ died and rose.

Blessings on your Lent,

Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison
President
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod
