Upcoming Events

 

Thanksgiving Meals

Thanksgiving will soon be here and as usual, we will provide meals for the Crisis Connection for the number of families in need. A list for the number of meals and food items needed are posted on the bulletin board in the narthex. Ingredients need to be brought to the church by Sunday, November 18th. Thank you for your continued help in providing these meals.

Any questions contact Nancy Richardson at 812-630-2422.

 

In Need of a Few Good Faith Stories

This upcoming year as part of the Confirmation class, we will be discussing and sharing faith stories.  As part of the experience of deepening and sharing our faith, we would like to have some members of Redeemer come and share their faith stories with the Confirmation students at some point during the year. Please see Pastor Adam if you would be willing to share your faith story this school year.

 

Thankoffering Sunday

During Sunday worship, November 18th, please support the life-changing ministries of Women of the ELCA. Together, we do more than we could ever do apart. In gratitude for all God has given to us, and with hope for all that is to come, let us now give our Thankoffering.

 

Advent Decorating:

Volunteers are needed to stay after worship on Sunday, November 25th to help decorate the sanctuary for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Your time would greatly be appreciated.

 

Poinsettia Sign-Up Sheet

Christian Education

“What Does This Mean?” 

An Introduction to Our Lutheran Christian Identity

(November 18) Following Sunday morning worship from 11:00 am--noon, Pastor Adam will be leading a four week class on the basics of our Lutheran Christian identity.  What does it mean when we call ourselves Lutheran Christians?  How is our Christian witness unique and important among the plethora of Christian denominations out there?  Many Lutherans know we take our name from the sixteenth century reformer Martin Luther, but far fewer know what it was that Luther and the other reformers of the German Reformation taught and the theological emphases that underlie our particular brand of Christianity.  Join us for these four weeks as we look a little deeper into what makes us Lutherans and why that identity is still important to us in the twenty-first century.  Everyone, teenager and up, is invited to attend these four one-hour sessions.  New members to Redeemer (those who have joined the congregation within the past three years) are especially encouraged to attend as well as anyone who wants a little refresher about who we are as a Lutheran church.  Bring your questions and your curiosity as we explore our faith together.

 

New Adult Class Starting November 25th: 

Christianity: The First 2000 Years

Do you know who Ignatius of Antioch was?  What about St. Augustine or Leo I?  How much do you know about the history of our faith, from Pentecost through the 20th Century?  One of the great things about being a Lutheran Christian (in my opinion) is that we do not ignore or whitewash the history of the church, and that history doesn’t just start with Martin Luther in the 16th Century.  The history of the church, all of it, is a part of our story-- the good, the bad, and the ugly.  It is the story of sinners seeking to follow Christ (and sometimes failing), of the work of the Holy Spirit among the faithful, of great saints who inspired great faith and great sinners who damaged others faith, of controversies and struggles over defending the truth of the gospel.  And it is a story that, known or unknown, still affects our faith and our church today.  Starting Sunday November 25th, the Adult class will be delving into some of this fascinating history by watching and discussing the A&E documentary Christianity:  The First Two Thousand Years.  While this documentary is made from a secular perspective (and has plenty of flaws and inaccuracies which we will discuss), it remains a well-made and informative film (the best overall documentary of Christian history that I have yet discovered).  We will spend class periods watching segments of the documentary and then discussing and elaborating upon some of the topics and events mentioned in the film.  Please join us for an interesting and unique experience as we explore how the church came to be what it is and the ways in which God moves in history.  The Adult class meets at 8:45am Sunday mornings.  No prior experience is required for attending this class.  All are invited.
