What to Expect
- Written by Redeemer
- Category: Welcome
If this is your first time attending any church, attending a Lutheran service, or visiting Redeemer, we'd like to say, welcome! We offer a casual, family atmosphere and encourage parents to bring their children to Sunday worship.
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.
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.
- 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, unless you want to.
We offer a liturgical service based upon the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) book, and, though our service may differ from other 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.
