Please Sign Up to Help with the Sauerkraut Supper!

If you are willing to help with serving, making mashed potatoes or dessert, and/or setup and cleanup, sign up on the bulletin board, talk to Jane, email “secretary.redeemer@gmail.com”, or call the church office ASAP!  

The Sauerkraut Supper is returning as part of our 125th anniversary celebration.  The event will be held on Friday, October 20th.  We will be serving from 5 to 7pm.  An adult meal of bratwurst, homemade mashed potatoes, sauerkraut or green beans, applesauce, and bun or roll and dessert is $10.  A child’s hot dog meal, with the same sides is $5.  All meals included lemonade, coffee, and dessert.  There will be beer available for an additional donation.  Carry-outs are available.  The evening will benefit the Matter family.

Don’t Forget to Your Will Done *Free of Charge*!

For the next two weeks, Concordia Theological Seminary is offering sign ups to have your final will and testament drafted free of charge!  The only caveat is that you have to designate at least $1 of your estate to the charity or non-profit of your choice.

One thing that has helped Redeemer be effective in preaching the Gospel is our endowment fund.  While it is not required that you designate funds from your estate to Redeemer, we are hoping this might serve as an excellent opportunity for you to contribute to our church.

Please pick up a copy of the handout sheet with all the details.  The handouts are located in the narthex.  Thanks so much!
