Worship at Our Redeemer’s

Each person, prayer and perspective matters.

Worship at Our Redeemer’s offers the joy of community, the peace of God and empowerment for caring for the world. It provides a place for our hopes, fears, pain, laughter, lament, confession and healing. You are always invited to join us on your own, with a friend or with your whole family—once a week, once a month or once a year.

We offer several different styles of worship and invite you to participate in the service that fits you best. Whether you want to enjoy familiar hymns in our beautiful sanctuary or connect with others in a more informal setting, Our Redeemer’s is a safe, no-pressure place to explore what worship means to you.

Informal Worship (9:00 a.m.)

Traditional words, modern world.

Informal worship is held in our fellowship hall, home to wedding receptions, coffee hour, the Thanksgiving Community Meal and all kinds of youth activities. Everyone sits in a circle; the neighbor to your left or right might be a young child, a grandparent or maybe the pastor. Your bulletin, containing songs, prayers and event information, gives you everything you need to know.

During this hour-long service, an ensemble leads us in a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary music. We hear a challenging and thoughtful message from Pastor Kathy, pray together and take communion. Children are welcome at informal worship, but may also choose to attend Kids’ Church, or, for the little ones, our staffed nursery is open.

Join us immediately following worship for coffee, snacks and conversation during Life Together Hour in the Fellowship Hall.

Traditional Worship (11:00 a.m.)

Spirited tradition expressing God’s living, loving word.

Come take a seat in our beautiful sanctuary as sunlight streams through the stained-glass windows. The 11:00 a.m. service is liturgy deeply rooted in the Lutheran tradition of God’s living word. Join together in prayer, familiar hymns and communion at God’s all-welcoming table, and hear a thoughtful message from Pastor Kathy that you can can carry into your week. We wish one another peace and blessings and leave the service more connected, challenged and hopeful than before.

Children are welcome in worship, and those four years old and younger also have the option of a staffed nursery. And after the service, there’s Coffee Hour for everyone in the fellowship hall.

Kids’ Church (9:00 a.m.)

Connecting with God and learning to serve.

Kids’ Church offers young people ages two and a half to sixth grade a special opportunity to learn, pray, sing, and worship together after being blessed during the 9:00 a.m. service. Visit the Kids’ page for more information about Kids’ Church and our other programs for children and families, or contact Steven Rystrom, our Children and Family Ministries Director, with any questions. Children up to age four are always welcome in our staffed Nursery.

Family Sabbath (9:00 a.m., second Sunday of the month)

Leadership for all ages.

On the Second Sunday of each month, our children take a break from Kids’ Church to join their families in the Sanctuary and get comfortable with worship. Children help read, serve communion, usher and more. Visit the Kids’ page to learn more about this fun and meaningful service.

Compline (8:00 p.m., second Sunday of the month)

Begin the new week in peace.

Join us for this special half-hour evening prayer service on the second Sunday of each month from October and June. Based on a chanted service that originated in the 6th century, Compline marks the completion of the day with reflection, silence and spiritual peace.

Often featuring guest musical groups, this service is a wonderfully calming way to conclude the Sabbath and welcome the coming week. Stay after Compline for wine, non-alcoholic beverages and other refreshments in the adjoining library.

“Worship at Our Redeemer’s welcomes you wherever you’re at and challenges you from that place. It provides a good balance of comfort and challenge.”

~ Jamie Baits

Worship is only the beginning.

Join us after the service for
coffee, conversation and community.

Sunday morning at Our Redeemer’s is a time not only to worship God but also to connect, catch up and learn with one another. Join us for Life Together Hour (between services) and Coffee Hour, which follows the 11:00 a.m. traditional worship. Come as you are, stay as long as you like, and leave feeling refreshed and encouraged for the new week.

Sunday fellowship schedule

Life Together Hour (10:00 a.m.)

A time to connect.

Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as you talk, think and laugh with other members of our community. Life Together is a perfect time to check out a class, have a great conversation or touch base with Pastor Kathy. During this hour we sometimes have congregational meetings and celebrations (with cake!).

Kids participate in special activities, middle school students gather for faith formation and high school youth chat about their weeks. Life Together Hour is just what its name suggests: a time for members of our community to connect and experience life together.

Coffee Hour (12:00 p.m.)

Coffee, cookies, and conversation.

Greet Pastor Kathy after 11:00 a.m. worship and enter our sunlit fellowship hall for coffee, cookies and conversation (there’s tea for the tea-drinkers, too!). Take an hour out of your week to simply be; let yourself wander between the community bulletin boards, the tasty snacks and the tables of people happy to talk and share stories with you. We leave this weekly gathering encouraged, centered and strengthened by a renewed sense of community as we go out into the world.
