I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD.'” Psalm 122:1
The Holy and Almighty God, Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, our Triune God … Father, Son, and Holy Spirit … is worthy of all the praise and honor we can give to Him (Rev. 4:9-11). The goal of our Worship Ministries is to provide a setting in which people can gather before God, receive His abundant gifts of grace through His holy Word and Sacraments, and offer Him their hearts and spirits in praise and thanksgiving (John 4:23-24). Through regular worship, people grow in their relationships to God and one another.
Our Worship Ministries also reach many outside our congregation with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over ten percent of our worshipers are guests — some come with church family members, and others are simply looking for a church home.
TRADITIONAL WORSHIP SERVICES
Our traditional worship includes Lutheran hymns and liturgies led by organ, piano and trumpet. The service also includes other choral and instrumental groups, along with scripture readings, prayers, the creeds and life-centered, Biblically based sermons. We have four worship services to choose from:

(changes to Praise Worship from late May to early September)

Communion is celebrated:
- 8:00 am – second, fourth & fifth Sunday
- 9:00 am – first and third Sunday
- 10:30 am – first and third Sunday

PRAISE WORSHIP (from late May to early September)
The contemporary worship features praise songs, scripture, prayer and creeds. The music is led by our enthusiastic Celebration choir. This service is only from late May to early September at the 10:30 am service.
Children’s Sunday School runs concurrently with the 9:00 am and 10:30 worship services. Summer Sunday School runs concurrently with the 10:30 service only from June 1 to Labor Day. For more information on Sunday School.
A fellowship coffee hour is offered after 8:00 service and between the 9:00 and 10:30 services. It’s a great place to meet new people and observe the friendly, relaxed camaraderie that is enjoyed by Redeemer’s congregation. To host a coffee hour: click here.
BAPTISM AND HOLY COMMUNION – celebrating the sacraments
In Baptism we are welcomed in the joy and presence of God’s loving family and are cleansed by the water and the word of God promising forgiveness and grace.
In Holy Communion we celebrate the meal which Jesus shared with his disciples on the night before he died on the cross. In this meal we receive the bread and wine believing that Christ is present with us in these common elements to offer us forgiveness. We give thanks to God for this gift (Eucharist means thanks-giving) and are joined together as the body of Christ and sent out to love and serve our neighbor.
If you share our beliefs regarding the Lord’s Supper, we welcome you to our altar.
- I believe that Jesus Christ is my only Lord and Savior from all sin, Satan and death.
- I believe that Christ is really present in the Sacrament and that with the bread and wine I receive His true Body and Blood.
- I resolve to dedicate my life to my Lord and Savior in His Body, the Church, by regular worship and devoted Christian service and living.
The Sunday services are recorded each Sunday. The 10:30 service is always recorded. If a special function is happening at the 9 AM service, then that service is also recorded.
