Grocery Cart Sunday is March 25th
Next Sunday, March 25th, marks the 4th Sunday of the month, and time again to refill our grocery cart with our donations of non-perishable foods for Sharing God’s Love. All non-perishable foods are welcome. Staples such as peanut butter, cold and hot cereals, coffee, sugar, flour and paper products (especially disposal baby diapers) are always in demand. Thank you again for your continued support.
It’s Quillow Time
It’s Quillow Time again. If you can help sew printed squares it will be greatly appreciated. We have only one senior this year so we have 18 squares to sew. The squares can be found in the narthex. Thank you. Karen Manni
It is that time again! Family Promise is coming back! Redeemer will be hosting Sunday, April 1st through Sunday April 8th. The Volunteer sign up board is in the narthex. Because the families will be moving in on Easter Sunday we will be emptying out the Sunday School rooms and preparing for the families on Saturday, March 31st at 10:30am. Therefore, we will only need to set up beds Sunday after worship. If you are interested in volunteering, but need more information please feel free to contact Shannon Smith or any of the team leaders– Carmen Moore for Evening Hosts and Laundry, Greg Cross for Overnight Hosts, Pat Crosby for Meals, and Joe Leonardi for Set-Up and Break-Down. You may contact any of the Family Promise Leaders at our email address: RedeemerFamilyPromise@gmail.com. Volunteer training is required prior to interacting with families for new volunteers. We will have a “Meet the Families” session, Sunday, March 25th directly after worship in the sanctuary providing specific information concerning the families we will be hosting. We’re excited to host, and care for these families here at Redeemer and make Christ known! Through every meal served, every linen washed, every conversation had and in every moment of laughter shared…YOU make a difference! Check out the volunteer board in the Narthex to see where you can make a difference!
Wednesday Night Menu
The meal this coming Wednesday will be a taco bar.
Fresh Expressions will be this Sunday, March 18th at 5:30 and we are excited to have Shannon Smith to give the reflection. Hope you’ll join us for a wonderful worship service!
Lutheran Campus Ministry Fundraiser
If you find yourself in the Northeast side of town on Friday nights during Lent stop in at Living Springs Lutheran Church (4224 Hard Scrabble Road) for a great Fish Dinner. Dinner is served from 5:00pm – 7:30 pm. Fried or Broiled Fish dinners available as well vegetarian option. Since 2012, LSLC has been providing a fish fry during the time of Lent. Each Friday night during Lent, fish dinners can be purchased. Patrons are encouraged to stay and enjoy the programs, some entertainment, and of course great fellowship. What began as an opportunity for community outreach has grown in popularity each year. This will be the fourth year that the proceeds will be going to support Lutheran Campus Ministry.
Family Ministries Spring Fling
Mark your calendars for the Redeemer Spring Fling on Saturday, March 24th from 1:00-3:00. There will be Easter Egg Hunts and crafts for the children. There will also be light snacks served and we hear the Easter Bunny may be dropping by! Make sure to let your friends, family, and neighbors know!
Speaking of the Spring Fling…
Eggs needed for the Spring Fling! Family Ministries would love your help in providing the eggs for the children’s Easter Egg Hunts on March 24th. We have unfilled eggs from previous years in the narthex—feel free to use them! If you’ll turn in already stuffed eggs to the box in the narthex that would be wonderful! Please avoid candies with nuts just as a precaution. Thanks so much!
