Rector’s Letter for 8/31

Dear Redeemer Family, This morning I am struck by how deeply I miss seeing all of you together. It has been over 5 months since I have seen some of you, and since we were all last gathered together at Redeemer for worship and prayer. Your Ministry Team is committed to the work of maintaining connection between you and your Redeemer community. We are ready and willing to come by for a visit, to deliver communion, or to just see…

Rector’s Letter for 8/24

Dear Redeemer Family: It was so good to worship with you, my Redeemer family, yesterday both in-person and online. I wanted to clarify something that I said at the beginning of the service.

I am also thankful for you, as I know that many of you pray regularly for me and my family. This…

Rector’s Letter for 8/3

Dear Redeemer Family, It was great to be back with you after a refreshing time of vacation, as we celebrated Holy Eucharist together yesterday. As I noted during the service, we will be returning to our “normal routine” of Holy Eucharist every Sunday. As we did yesterday, we will be distributing communion carefully to those who are in attendance, and we will have communion available for pick-up for those who continue to worship from home. Communion is now being offered…
