Voters' Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, February 9, immediately after the 10:00 am service. The sole agenda item for this meeting will be to review and discuss the information received, and to make a final decision regarding the scope and budgeted cost for the project. Please plan to join this very important meeting so that we can keep our project moving forward!
Please click here sign up to receive the "Redeemer Reflected" email announcements and updates from Redeemer if you are not yet receiving them. This is our primary means of communication with our members outside of the Sunday morning services. We send out about one item per week and promise to not abuse the privilege. Emmy Woock is currently overseeing this service.
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.
