Welcoming Back Pastor Kelly and Babette: Sunday, June 4th
Pastor Kelly and Babette left for their trip to Germany last week. They are both part of a delegation from our synod visiting Leipzig, Germany in celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. They will be gone for about a week longer and will join us again for worship on June 4th. We will celebrate their travels and safe arrivals after church on Sunday, June 4th with a festive meal with food from around the world!
A Blessed Ramadan to our Muslim Neighbors
Our Muslim neighbors begin Ramadan this evening, Friday, May 26th. Ramadan is a month of fasting that continues until June 24th. You may notice some signs in front of Redeemer and other churches around the cities that say “Blessed Ramadan.” This is one small way that individuals and churches join together in making a statement of support and love for our Muslim neighbors. To our many Muslim neighbors in North Minneapolis and the Twin Cities, we wish a Blessed Ramadan!
