Jesus Gives Us Peace!

I understand that it is human nature to worry and stress about things in this world, especially
when they affect us directly. But the good news is that
we don’t need to face our fears alone… we can look to the “God of Peace”

Face Masks

A few of our members who are skilled with needle and thread have made several masks for anyone that would like one. There are also some smaller masks available for children. Please contact Jamie Droste by calling the church office (232-7575) and she will be happy to arrange for pickup or delivery of masks.

Christ on the front lines: Remembering the fallen

By Stacey Egger

Each Memorial Day, Americans remember  those who have given their lives in service to their country. But for countless active military members, veterans and their families and friends, such remembrance is an everyday reality.

Holy Spirit, Ever Dwelling (LSB 650)

Holy Spirit, ever dwelling
    In the holiest realms of light;
Holy Spirit, ever brooding
    O’er a world of gloom and night;
Holy Spirit, ever raising
    Those of earth to thrones on high;
Living, life-imparting Spirit,
    You we praise and magnify.
 
Holy Spirit, ever living
    As the Church’s very life;
Holy Spirit, ever striving
    Through us in a ceaseless strife;
Holy Spirit, ever forming
    In the Church the mind of Christ:
You we praise with endless worship
    For Your gifts and fruits unpriced.
  
Holy Spirit, ever working
    Through the Church’s ministry;
Quick’ning, strength’ning, and absolving,
    Setting captive sinners free;
Holy Spirit, ever binding
    Age to age and soul to soul
In communion never ending,
    You we worship and extol.

Susan Ballou, Organist 

YARD CARE

Our Redeemer is in need of your help to continue care of our beautiful church property. There is fresh mulch beside the garage, so please come & freshen up the property plots. 

The Trustees also need help cutting the grass. There are 2 volunteers that alternate every other week, so it would be great to have a more assitance to cut the grass on alternating weeks. Contact Sonny Ballou by calling the church office, 401-232-7575. Thank you!
