Attention Communion Assistants
During this Covid-19 pandemic we have not had scheduled communion assistants.
When we resume Communion as usual we will need of a few more Communion Assistants.
If you are motivated to fill that need once a month, please talk to Pastor Adam.
Thanks, your help is appreciated.
It’s Time to Register for Summer Camp
As a former camp counselor, I have witnessed first hand the incredible value of a week of camp at one of our Lutheran camps. Summer Church camp does so much for a child’s faith development its value cannot be overstated. And it is amazingly fun too! I, therefore, strongly encourage every Christian youth who is able to attend at least one week of summer camp each summer.
Sadly, like many other things last year, summer camp programs were cancelled due to Covid. However, with lessons learned from last summer and increasing vaccinations, Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Indiana-Kentucky (LOMIK) is confident that we will be able to have summer camp this summer both safely and effectively. (For more information about this see their newly redesigned website www.lomik.org.) Registration for Summer Camp at the LOMIK camps (Lutheran Hills, Lutherwald, and Lake Luther) is already open. [Or, if you want to go a little farther afield, I can strongly recommend the programs at Lutheran Memorial Camp in Fulton, OH (a little less than six hours away).] LOMIK brochures are available on one of the tables in the narthex. Please feel free to take one. Due to the importance of camp for faith formation, the Christian Ed and Youth Committee has made its goal to provide funding for all but the first $100 of the cost of week at camp for any members of Redeemer. (If the remaining $100 is too much of a financial burden to your family, please talk to Pastor Adam and we will work to find some way to cover the cost. We don’t want any child of Redeemer to not attend camp for financial reasons.) As always, if you have questions about camp or the value of a week of church summer camp, see Pastor Adam.
How To Register Your Child for Summer Camp at a LOMIK Camp
First, pick up a LOMIK brochure in the church narthex and figure out which camp, program and week you would like your child to attend camp. Then, fill out the Summer Program Registration Form on the back of the brochure including your child’s name, address, grade, camp program, week, and any buddy requests your child my have (a child of the same sex as your child who will be attending camp the same week in the same program as your child and that would like to be in the same cabin as your child). In the Camp Fee Calculation box, put down the total cost of the camp program ($355 for most full week programs), subtract any second child discounts (see instructions on the form), and list the total amount due. Where it asks for the amount the congregation pays put down $100 less than the amount on line 3 (Total amount due). (For most full week programs this will be $255, for most half week programs this will be $120.) The remaining $100 per child is your responsibility. After the registration is filled out, bring it by the church office for the pastor to sign and photocopy for our records by May 23rd. Then mail the completed registration form to Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Indiana-Kentucky 5215 N. 450 W. Angola, IN 46703. The deposit fee of $50 has been waived for 2021. You will need to pay the $100 upon arrival at camp. (You can also register online at www.lomik.org, but please bring some type of printout verifying this registration to the church for us to photocopy for our records.) After registration you will receive further information about the camp week as well as a health form to fill out for your child.
Personal Care Kits
Redeemer Lutheran Church will begin collecting items for the personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief during the month of March. Our goal is to collect 25 kits. Items for the kits will be written on paper shapes. Take a shape and purchase the item. Bring the item back into church and place it in the basket under the table. If you would rather donate money, we will purchase items later. Items needed for the kits are: 1 lightweight bath towel (size 52”x27,” dark colors recommended). 2 bars of soap, (original pkg). 1 sturdy comb (removed from pkg). 1 metal nail clipper (removed from pkg). The kits will be put together and shipped later in the year.
Help Needed to Mow Church Lawn:
Volunteers are needed to mow the church lawn. The church has a push, riding mower, weed eater and blower which are available for use or you may use your own equipment. If you would be able to mow just once or twice this summer, your help will be greatly appreciated. A sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board. Consider your time and effort as a gift to Redeemer Lutheran.
Youth Sunday School has Resumed
After almost a year of no youth Sunday School, due to Covid, we are happy to announce that Youth Sunday School classes for the middle school grades have resumed. (We will continue physical distancing in the classroom with masks on for lessons.)
Adult Class: The Pastoral Letters (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus)
Of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament, St. Paul wrote thirteen of them. Of those thirteen letters, nine are addressed to Christian communities while four are addressed to individuals. While Paul’s letters to the churches tend to draw far more attention then his letters to individuals, these four letters offer great Christian insight as well--particularly the longer three addressed to two of Paul’s companions on his missionary journeys: Timothy and Titus. Collectively these three letters (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus) are known as the Pastoral letters because they are written to fellow leaders in the early church offering important counsel and encouragement regarding Christian ministry. You are invited to join our Adult class as we study these important letters of Paul. The Adult class meets 8:45 am Sunday mornings. Please join us for this exciting opportunity. All are welcome—no prior experience necessary.
Anyone with a prayer concern, please call the church office.
If no one is available to take your prayer request, please call Brenda White at (h) 482-9106 or at 631-3609. You can also call Nancy Baer at 631-1397
