Synod Assembly This Weekend
This weekend several Redeemer representatives will be participating in the annual Synod Assembly. This year’s synod assembly’s theme is “Real Presence: In our neighborhoods, with our neighbors.” This assembly is a way for our congregation to connect to the larger community and church by gathering with representatives of other Minneapolis area Lutheran churches. We look forward to hearing about the event from our delegates!
Welcoming Back Pastor Kelly-Meal after Church on Sunday

The meal will be catered by Holy Land Deli with foods from the Middle East and the Mediterranean. If you are able, please help by bringing a Middle Eastern inspired dish of your own. We are hoping for olives, tabouli, Greek salad, pita chips or pita bread, and/or baklava! Other dishes are always welcomed and appreciated! Please contact Jordan at email@example.com or Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to contribute or have additional questions. We look forward to seeing you all for food and fellowship on Sunday.
