News at Redeemer Lutheran Church

A note to our floral donors:

As I hope you are aware, the amount we suggest for your floral offering is set aside to directly offset the cost of two weekly floral bouquets provided by our florist.  We appreciate our regular and faithful donors who make this special, additional offering from time to time to beautify the altar for our services.

Effective September 2018, our florist increased their weekly charge to us for delivery of our two floral displays.  This news comes after many years of stable prices for our weekly floral needs.  Starting in January 2019, the suggested offering for two floral bouquets will be $50 to cover the weekly charge.

  • If you will be taking your flowers home with you, please pick them up after the 10:30am service.  
  • If that is not convenient, you may also make arrangements with Therese in the church office to pick them up on Monday.
  • If you will not be taking the flowers, they you can just forward the email to Pastor and the Altar Guild so we know flowers will be available ahead of time.

Thank you for your continued support.

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.
