Redeemer Conference 2019

January 2019 Redeemer Conference

On Monday, January 14, 2019, members, guests, friends, and colleagues gather at Redeemer Lutheran Church for worship, theology, and camaraderie.

We had about 90 people last year.

We offer this event free of charge! If you want to drop us a note that you’re coming, great! If you want to play it by ear and show up if whim strikes and weather allows, fabulous! The only expense we ask you to cover is a $5 free-will donation for a scrumptious lunch. And if you stay until Gemütlichkeit and Supper, then we ask that you give another free-will donation for supper.

This year, the Rev. Dr. David P. Scaer will be our speaker. He will speak about aspects of the Third Use of the Law and the errors that can arise when it is neglected.

Here is the schedule this year:
9:00 a.m. Divine Service
10:00 a.m. Coffee and Donuts
10:25 a.m. Conference welcome
10:30-11:45 Session 1
11:45-12:00 Questions for Speaker
12:00-1:30 p.m. Lunch ($5.00 per person)
1:30-3:15 p.m. Session 2
3:30-3:45 p.m. Introduction of Gregorian Vespers from the Brotherhood Prayer Book
4:00-4:45 p.m. Vespers
5:00-8:00 p.m. Gemütlichkeit and Supper in Undercroft (free will offering)

We hope to see all of the usual suspects again this year. We also hope others come to join the festivities. Don’t worry if you have to show up late or leave early, just come. (Even if you are committed to the other conferences happening that day, or working, join us for Vespers and Gemütlichkeit).

12 Days of Christmas: Correction for January 4th

There is one correction to the previous post with the Christmas service schedule: Redeemer’s Thursday services during Christmas will be in the evening only. So, on Thursday December 28, and also on Thursday, January 4, the only service time is 7:00 p.m.

Click here to view the corrected news article with all of the Christmas service times. We apologize for any confusion.
