welcome

  • Welcome

    If this is your first time attending any church, first time attending a Lutheran service, or you're just visiting our congregation, we'd like to say, welcome!  We offer a casual, family atmosphere and encourage parents to bring their children to Sunday worship. As a visitor to Redeemer, you won't be singled out in anyway.

    • You won't be asked to wear a name tag
    • You won't be expected to sing, unless you want to.
    • You aren't expected to give when we receive the offering

    We offer a liturgical service based upon the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) book, and, though our service may differ from other ELCA Lutheran churches, there is a basic pattern. 

    • We encounter God’s Word.
    • We share a meal at the Lord’s table.
    • We are sent into the world.

    But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    Parking

    We have a single large parking lot adjacent to our building. Handicap parking spots are available near the front and rear entrances of our building.

    Entrance

    You can enter the building through the front entrance, which is the first set of wooden double doors you pass as you enter the parking lot. This entrance will place you in the narthex (lobby) closest to the sanctuary. You can also enter via the rear entrance. From the narthex, a handicap accessible bathroom, which is also equipped with a infant diaper changing station, is located down, on the right. Additional bathrooms are located around the corner.

    As a Newcomer to Redeemer

    As a newcomer to Redeemer, you won't be singled out in anyway.

  • Worship Opportunities

    Our Sunday morning worship is at 9 a.m, unless otherwise indicated.

    Throughout the the year we offer additional worship services, such as evening prayer services (aka Vespers), and Gospel Music services.  

    Sunday School & Spiritual Formation

    We offer children's Christian education during the months of September through June.  Children's Sunday occurs during a portion of our morning worship time.

    Other spiritual formation events are scheduled throughout the year, such as our Lenten (the 40 days before Easter) dinner studies. Recent topics have included the life of Martin Luther Jr and how to better understand and support our Muslim neighbors.  Please check our calendar of events for upcoming spiritual formation events.

    Fellowship

    We welcome you to join us for after Sunday worship to come and hang out with us for some conversation and light refreshments. 

    But don't let it stop on Sunday morning. Join us as we work alongside our community hunger relief partners at Phillies Bridge Farm and on other occasions, deepening relationships with each other as we discover how God is at work through Christ in our lives and the world.
