Thanks, Gratitude and Peace to You this Christmas!
We are grateful for so many of you who have made the work of Redeemer and Redeemer Center for Life possible this year through generous volunteering, support, and financial giving. Together, we are a stronger and more transformational place of welcome and ministry. As we celebrate Christmas, we celebrate that God has come to be with us and we wish you great peace and joy in this time.
Remember Redeemer in your Year End Giving
If you’d still like to make a year-end gift to Redeemer Center for Life or to Redeemer Lutheran Church, it is not too late! Support Redeemer Lutheran Church by making an online gift here or in the Sunday collection. Redeemer Center for Life has raised over $14,000 since kicking off our year-end matching-funds drive in November. With $3,750 still available in matching funds, your donation is doubled, dollar for dollar, when you support RCFL programming. Give an online donation here!

Help Redeemer Fuel Standing Rock

We’re also looking for a few large tarps that can be used to cover the firewood. Tarps can be dropped off in the main office.
