News at Redeemer Lutheran Church

LOOK for the 2018 ALTAR FLOWER calendar in the church lobby. To give the altar flowers for a specific Sunday, sign up on the calendar on the Bulletin Board in the church lobby. If the date you want is already taken, you may put your name to the right of the one already there to give flowers for “beside the organ” that Sunday. The cost of the 2 altar bouquets or the centerpiece beside the organ is $40.00. Redeemer has a standing order with the florist. You will be asked to provide a sentiment or dedication to be shown in the bulletin (“In memory of ...”“In thanksgiving for ...” etc.) Please show first and last names on the sign-up sheet. Also, be sure to show that your payment is for ALTAR FLOWERS.

Members can now use a program called “Simply Giving” to make their regular offerings to Redeemer by electronic funds transfer (EFT).  You may already be using EFT to pay many of your utility and other bills through automatic withdrawals from your checking account.  Electronic transfers are generally considered to be more convenient and secure than transactions made by cash or check.

There is no cost to you for this new option. If you are currently giving on a weekly or monthly basis, you will no longer need to write 52 checks or 12 checks a year, and the church will not have to handle and process them.  Also, when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your regular offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

“Simply Giving” is sponsored by Thrivent and operated by Vanco, a company that provides this service for thousands of congregations like ours.

If you would like to make your regular offerings to be made automatically by electronic funds transfer, please fill out an authorization form.  A copy is included here or is available at church.  You can return it in the offering plate or send it to the church office where the information will be entered into Vanco’s secure site.

Of course you may continue making your contributions by check or cash.  If you do decide to contribute electronically but would like to put something into the offering plate during the service, you may use your envelope and indicate on it that you made your contribution by EFT.

Thank you for considering this new Simply Giving opportunity.  Additional information is available from the Finance Chair, Bruce Hasher., using the form below.
