Stewardship Forms

If you have not returned your estimate of giving and ministry in action forms for 2021, please do so before September 27th. We are counting on you as we prepare the budget for next year.

 

 

RCW NEWS:

Because of the continuing COVID-19 precautions, and for the health and safety of everyone,

it has been decided to cancel the RCW meetings until further notice. Also, we are canceling the

Holiday Bazaar for this year. We know many of our donors and workers plan early for items to

earmark or make for the bazaar, and wanted to let everyone know at the earliest possible time.

We hope and pray that things are more "back to normal" next year!!! If anyone has any questions,

please contact Bonnie Kreilein 812-639-9422 or Angie Schnarr 812-630-8922

 

 

Attention Communion Assistants

During this Covid-19 pandemic we will not be having any communion assistants

beyond the assisting minister. When we resume Communion as usual we will be in

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.

 

 

Volunteers are needed to mow the Church Lawn:  You may use our push,

riding mower, weed eater & blower or use your own. Mowing just once or twice 

will be greatly appreciated. A sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board.

Consider your time & effort as a gift to Redeemer.

 

          

Christian Education

 

Adult Class: The Screwtape Letters

    When we think of evil in the world and the forces of darkness opposed to the light of Christ, we often think of things very overtly sinister and dastardly. We may even picture devils and demons with horns and pointed tails whispering in our ears very overtly evil advice, much like those old cartoon shows, but these assumptions often blind us to many of ways we can be subtly influenced against God and our faith. Seeing this problem, the great Christian apologist C.S. Lewis wrote an insightful fictional series of letters examining Christian faith and life from the other side--from the perspective of those demons who oppose God. The Screwtape Letters is one of Lewis’ most famous works, purporting to be a series of letters written by an experienced senior demon, Screwtape, to his nephew, a neophyte tempter named Wormwood, giving him advice on how to corrupt his charge--a young-adult human male. In these letters, the advice given by Screwtape points to the subtle temptations we humans face and the dangers they truly present to us when we give in to them--offering an important perspective on our faith and the dangers we face in this world, as well as God’s power to overcome them. While the advice given in these letters is the opposite of good Christian advice (A woman once complained to the paper where Lewis first published them, not understanding their purpose, that she found the advice given in these letters “unhelpful and downright diabolical.”) it nevertheless offers an outstanding commentary on Christian faith and life from a fascinating and insightful perspective that is well worth discussion.

    Therefore, you are invited to join us for a study of C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters in our Adult Class, which meets Sunday mornings at 8:45 am. The church has several copies of The Screwtape Letters that can be borrowed, or you can purchase your own through Amazon or some other book dealer. No reading will be required prior to the first class. Please join us for this exciting class. All are welcome.
