Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer receives new members twice during the year.  Even before you join, we invite you to participate fully in the life of the congregation: to grow as a follower of Jesus, to worship regularly, to be in community with others, and to give generously.

The process for receiving new members looks like this:

  • Christianity 101 will be held prior to reception and orientation.  Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 7:00pm
  • Reception into membership will be held on Sunday, November 11, 2018 at either 8:30am or 10:30am worship service.
  • Orientation will be held for a time to learn more about Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer and meet the Staff and other members. TBA

Every “New Member” family unit is assigned to a Faith & Care Team. During this month, you are asked to help in one of several areas. These include: Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, Communion Assistants, Coffee Servers, Bringing and Serving Food for special events such as funerals, etc.  A letter with detailed explanation will be provided in the New Member Packet received at the Orientation.
