Thanks so much for checking out our website. Here you can find out more about experiencing the heart and core of what we do on Sunday, especially what it's like to visit Redeemer for the first time. We hope you will learn a bit about what we do and why we do it. However, it can't tell you everything. The most important and worthwhile part - worshipping together, growing together, and doing life together - you'll have to experience in person. After you have taken a look around here, we hope you can come and be a part of what's really worthwhile.
What should I wear?
Most wear anything from jeans & a T-shirt to business causal to something more. Feel free to come as you are. It doesn't matter what you're wearing. We're just glad you're here.
Where should I sit?
Feel free to sit anywhere you'd like and feel comfortable. We won't make you sit up front. Ushers can help you find an open seat, no matter when you arrive.
What about kids?
We love to have kids & young families join us! Please don't feel bad if kids get restless. They're kids - that's what they do. There are books and coloring activities in the back rows, and there is a children's room downstairs as well.
What about all the singing?
The Lutheran church has treasured hymns as a memorable way to communicate the gospel message of Jesus. It might strike you that there is more singing than you may be used to. We know there might be a lot of new stuff. We invite everyone to participate in singing, but feel free to sing and participate as much as you feel comfortable.
What about the offering?
The members of Redeemer gather an offering out of thankfulness, not out of drudgery or compulsion, from the blessings God has first given to us. This thank offering supports ministry in our city and around the world. We don't expect guests to contribute, so please don't feel pressured to do so.
What about communion?
In order to make sure everyone receives the sacrament to their spiritual benefit and not harm, we invite members to come forward and ask guests to first talk with the pastor before joining us.
Can I stay for coffee & snacks after?
Once a month, typically on the third weekend, we have a coffee hour. We treasure our Christian friendships and want to build community between everyone. So yes, we'd love for you to stick around - you're not overstaying your welcome.
