Summer Prep Extravaganza at Lutheran Hills: 

A Service and Retreat Opportunity (May 10-11)

Lutheran Hills is hosting its Summer Prep Extravaganza Friday May 10th through Saturday May 11th.  This is service weekend of work projects to get the camp ready for Summer Camp while also having a few retreat aspects to it--such as camp fire and devotions.  Pastor Tim Kraemer of Christ Lutheran Church and myself will be taking our joint Confirmation class to this work weekend and we invite and encourage high school, middle school, and adult participants to join us for this service opportunity.  There is no fee for this weekend and Breakfast and Lunch on Saturday are provided.  We will be departing Jasper/Haysville Friday early evening (probably around 5 pm) getting fast food dinner on the way up and returning dinner time-ish on Saturday.  A sign up sheet is posted on the bulletin board in the narthex.  Please sign up by April 28th so that I can let Lutheran Hills know how many are going and how many beds we will need.  We are in need of at least one female adult chaperone for this trip.  Come join us for an awesome time of service and fellowship!

Birthday Sundays

As a family of faith, we want to make a conscious effort to celebrate milestones in the lives of the members of our congregation and increase our opportunities for fellowship with one another.  Therefore, the Evangelism team has decided to try and start a new tradition at Redeemer--celebrating the birthdays in our congregation with a time of cake and drink fellowship following our Sunday morning worship on the last Sunday of the month.

 

 

Christian Education

        

                   Adult Class: The Story of Salvation:                                           Understanding the Bible

     The Bible stands at the center of our Christian faith--telling us what we know about God and God’s promises, but for many Christians the Bible is a very confusing book. In fact, it’s not just a confusing book, but a confusing library of books. Those who read the Bible on their own often get confused by the Bible’s chronology or overwhelmed by details they don’t understand. Meanwhile, those who only hear the snippets of scripture we read in worship often have little sense of how those snippets fit in to the larger picture that is the story of the Bible. Some may even wonder if there is a larger picture. There is. And when we really look at it, it is amazing how the various pieces fall together and give us a picture of immense value: the Story of Salvation. While the Bible can be read in a variety of different ways, while the details can really flesh out specific points of Christian belief and livings, it is also vital to understand the witness of the Bible as a whole: the story of God’s actions to save his people, culminating in the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Christ.

     Join us throughout the 2023-24 school year, as our Adult Class undertakes an overview of the Bible (both the Old and New Testaments), focusing not only on what’s in the Bible and its major stories, but also on how it all fits together to tell the story of God’s ultimate act of salvation and what this means for us in our lives. This class is intended as an introductory class, but with enough details and nuances to enrich the biblical understanding of even the most veteran of Bible study participants. If you’ve ever found yourself confused by the Bible or if you ever just wanted to understand how the Old and New Testaments work together, then this class is for you. No prior experience required and all prior experience welcomed. The Adult Class meets Sunday mornings at 8:45 am. We will begin this new class on Sunday September 10th. All are welcome. Please join us for this fascinating exploration of our scriptures.
