Bryn Mawr Backpacks.
Last year, we started a partnership with the Sheridan Story program at Bryn Mawr Elementary School, packing backpacks with food on Fridays for children to take home for the weekend. This program has grown in the last year to serve 112 families. It has been an extremely beneficial partnership that takes place every Friday. They are in need of more volunteers this school year. If you would like to participate or learn more, please contact Pastor Kelly or the church office (612)374-4139.
Flu Shot Clinic
In partnership with Fairview Health Services we will once again be providing a Flu Shot Clinic:
Date: Sunday Oct 30th
Time : 10:30 am – 1:00pm
Where: Redeemer Lutheran Church Library
Ages: 6 months and up
The vaccines are free of charge however if you do have medical coverage please bring your card along to assist in helping to keep this program funded. You will not have a co-pay.
Here’s a little bit about the flu:
The flu season starts as early as October and can last until late May.
Getting vaccinated in the fall is the best way to protect yourself, family and friends.
The effectiveness can vary from year to year even if it’s not an exact match. The vaccine takes two weeks after it is given for it to be fully effective.
Unfortunately the nasal flu mist is not being recommended and will not be offered at our Redeemer Clinic.
So don’t be shy, roll up your sleeve and come to the Redeemer Flu Clinic.
I’ll be there to assist and hold your hand should you need me too.
With best wishes for good health and God’s Peace,
