Pastor's Note

Dear Redeemer,

First, I want to repeat the good news: we will return to in-person worship in the Redeemer Sanctuary on Sunday, March 14th at 10am. Bad news: It’s the first morning of Daylight Savings Time, so please remember to set your clocks ahead!  A few things about our first weeks back:
  1. We are limited to 25% capacity, so a max of 50 worshippers. Please sign up here. Easter (April 4) will feature two services: 8am and 10am.
  2. Masks must be worn at all times during the worship service over NOSE and MOUTH. Extra masks and sanitizer will be readily available.
  3. Dorothy Z. will be on hand as lead usher and will help make sure we space out by household.
  4. Communion/Sharing of Peace/Lord’s Prayer will be done a little differently for the first weeks, but they will be present in the service.
  5. We intend to “livestream” these services and will update you on how to access the service from home.
Giving: An Overview

God has blessed Redeemer always, and the form of blessing in the last decade has been in growth of the people and a positive culture of community both within and outside the church walls. That’s tremendous. In these years, we have emphasized service, connection, learning and worship. Giving as a key part of our relationship with God? Not much about that. I want to touch on that in the next several weeks by going a bit deeper on each of these points:
  • Giving flows from your relationship with God.
  • Giving is in proportion to your resources of money, time and talent.
  • Giving is regular. (Did you know that the Donate button on our website www.redeemermilwaukee.org links to PayPal and allows you to make a regular donation each week, month, etc.?)
  • Giving may include extra opportunities to stretch. 
  • Giving to additional causes is great.
  • Giving satisfies a deep spiritual hunger.
I look forward to sharing more on each of these points, but as pastor I don’t want to be the only one speaking about generosity. Many of you have moving stories of what giving--and receiving--has meant in your life. Sharing those stories will be important as we prepare for awesome challenges ahead that may include needed upgrades to “our hive” and growing our discipleship and connection.

Peace in Christ--can’t wait to see many of you on the 14th!

Pastor Lisa
