News at Redeemer Lutheran Church

The  2018 ALTAR FLOWER calendar is now posted 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.

You can pick up your copy in the narthex.  Look for the copy with your name on the back.  A copy is reserved for each active member household.  To help keep track of who has picked up their copies there will be a label on the back cover with the name of the household.

We will have a good supply of extra copies, which will not have a label.  If you need a second copy, or if we don’t have one with your name on it for some reason, you can take an unlabeled one.

For those who can not get to church to pick up their copy, we will deliver them.  If you will be seeing someone in that category, feel free to help us by picking up their copy and bringing it to them.

After the initial distribution, we will have enough extras to put one in each pew, like the blue attendance books.  The new version is small enough to fit and they might as well be out where people can use them rather than in a box in a closet.

If you have any questions or comments please tell Bruce Hasher.
