Illinois State University Visits Redeemer
A group of college students from Illinois State University will be visiting and doing service projects around Redeemer May 7-13th. We have had a wonderful collaboration with the group over the last five years of them coming to Redeemer, and we are excited to have them back again this year.
We are excited to announce the birth of Ingrid Sylvi Jorgenson on April 25th! She is the daughter to Andrew and Kiara Jorgenson and little sister to Olia. Mom and Sylvi are both healthy and well!
Thank you to Gene Sullivan for the flowers that are on the alter. They were give in honor of Mother’s Day!
Urban VBS & Redeemer VBS
Redeemer youth are invited to engage with theological themes through fun activities during two Vacation Bible Schools this summer. Young people who have completed grades 4 - 8 are encouraged to apply to participate in the Urban VBS at Augsburg College from Tuesday, June 14 to Wednesday, June 15. Participants stay overnight in college dormitories and engage in activities that allow them to explore and experience life on a college campus. High school youth plan and lead activities that encourage younger youth to think about God’s plan for their lives. If you are interested in registering for Urban VBS, please fill-out a registration form and return it to the Babette or Alison in the church office by Sunday, May 22nd.
Redeemer will be hosting a Vacation Bible School for children ages 4-10 on June 8, 9, & 10. This 3-day daytime program will run from 10am-1pm and will use music, visual art and story to engage our youngest members in big questions. Parents of participants are asked to volunteer one day or provide one meal during the week. If you are interested in registering your child, or if you would like to volunteer your time for this fun program, please contact Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-374-4139.
Free, Confidential HIV Testing on Tuesday, May 10
Redeemer Center for Life is hosting a day of free and confidential HIV testing. The Aliveness Project and the Health Commons are joining forces to bring this incredible service to the community on May 10th, 1-7pm.
Why Get Tested?
North Minneapolis has the highest concentration of people who are HIV positive in the state of Minnesota.
Why Get Tested Now?
It’s better to know. It's normal to feel worried about HIV. But why let yourself fear the unknown? Testing early for HIV can help put your mind at ease and reduce the anxiety of not knowing.
How Do I Get Tested?
Testing will be on a walk-in basis and take place in the Redeemer Center for Life office, 350 Logan Ave. N Suite #201. Just ring the buzzer for #201 at the door of the building to be let in. Volunteers will be present with signs to help participants find their way. Food and seating will be available in the waiting room. You do NOT need insurance to be tested.
Whether your result is negative, or positive, it's always better to know so that you can move on with your life, or start treatment if necessary. And remember, your result may not be what you expect.
So come out and get tested on May 10th!
