RCW NEWS—HOLIDAY BAZAAR!

The RCW will be hosting their Holiday Bazaar this year! It will be held on Saturday, November 20th from 8am -1pm in the fellowship hall. We will again be offering baked goods, food items, new craft items and the white elephant sale. We need your donations! There are many wonderful cooks/bakers in our congregation!  And it is a good time to clean out closets, attics, etc. We will be accepting items for the white elephant sale beginning Sunday, Nov. 7th. and drop them off in the hallway to the kitchen/fellowship hall. We are asking that these items be CLEAN, in good working order, and all pieces (games, puzzles) are included. As a reminder we do not accept any clothing items. Baked goods and food items can be brought in on Friday the 19th or early (before the start of the sale) Saturday morning. 

   We are also in need of helpers to set up and to help the morning of the bazaar. If you are wanting to help or have any questions, please call Bonnie Kreilein at 812-639-9422 or Angie Schnarr 812-630-8922. We sincerely thank everyone for all your help! Without you, our church family, this event would not be possible!

 

OPERATION CHRISTMAN CHILD

    The month of October has been designated as Operation Christmas Child collection      month. This program is part of the Billy Graham ministry program to reach children

    in poverty-stricken nations all over the world and to introduce them to Jesus Christ.        The goal this year is to get one com- pleted shoebox from every family unit at                Redeemer. That could be over 50+ boxes. We have so many blessings to share and      our job is to serve others. Search your heart and pray about how you can help by          creating a box or by a giving a monetary gift to help spread the gospel of Jesus              Christ to the world. Check the table in the narthex for more information. The due             date is on October 31st.  May God bless our efforts.

 

 

Christian Education

Youth Class Meets the Second Sunday of Each Month

Attention all Middle School and High School Youth and their families!

Redeemer’s Youth Christian Ed class is held on the second Sunday of each month at 9:00 am in the Confirmation room. Please plan to attend this monthly study and discussion, focused on the intersection of life and faith, facilitated by Beth Phillips. Hope to see you there.

 

Adult Class:  Understanding Our Neighbor’s Faith:

Non-Christian Religions

        Five years ago our Adult Class did an eleven week study on Christian Denominations and Traditions, entitled Understanding Our Neighbor’s Faith. In that class we looked over the origins, theological distinctions, and practices of many of the various groups that make up the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. It was a wonderful overview of the differences between Christian denominations (some very big, and others relatively small) while at the same time sharing some of the points of connection between us and them. However, not all our neighbors are Christians, and it is important to understand where they are coming from as well, if for a different reason. 

      It is important to know what our Christian neighbors believe so that we can embrace them as a fellow brother or sister in Christ and understand at the same time why and where we disagree--why we are not just Christians, but Lutheran Christians. Our non-Christian neighbors are not our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. They too are creatures of God, whom Jesus died for, but they are missing the faith through which we receive Christ’s grace. It is important for us to know what these neighbors believe and why, not so much to emphasize our commonalities, but to know how best to share the good news of Christ with them. For there are really only two types of people in the world--Christians and potential Christians. 

      Therefore, five years in the making, we will be embarking upon the second part of Understanding our Neighbor’s Faith this summer/fall, as we look at the origins, beliefs, and practices of a number of non-Christian religions (including Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Mormanism, Atheism, and more). This is not a comparative religions class; rather we will be looking at each of these faiths through the lens of our Lutheran Christianity and focusing our discussion on ways in which we might approach people of such faiths with the gospel of Jesus Christ. For blind ignorance and misinformed stereotypes of other faiths, often severely hampers our ability to witness to the gospel and even to defend our faith against criticisms and stereotypes these faiths have of Christians. 

       All are invited and welcome to join us for this class, regardless of prior experience. Please join us for this fascinating class/discussion as we tackle some of the more challenging aspects of being evangelical Christians in a pluralistic society.  The class begins at 8:45 am.
