September 2020
Continued Suspension of Activities During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Dear Holy Redeemer Community,

Following yet another unprecedented event - the derecho of August 10 - attentions turned to storm cleanup and disaster relief. As such, the Holy Redeemer Reopening Task Force has not met. With significant spikes in COVID cases and positivity rates in our area, nothing has changed that would have allowed the Task Force to modify current plans. Activities within the church building continue to be limited to recording of online worship and other essentials. The Reopening Task Force is tentatively scheduled to meet on Tuesday, September 22 to discuss next steps. Their recommendations will be passed on to the Executive Committee and Council for their meetings on October 1 and 8, respectively. These groups will continue to monitor and re-evaluate the best available information and guidance from a variety of sources.
Facebook Live (*) streaming worship continues on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. 
  • September 20 - Pentecost 16

  • September 27 - Pentecost 17

  • October 4 - Pentecost 18

  • October 11 - Pentecost 19

Check email, this website, and other church sources for further updates regarding October and beyond.

(*) For those not on Facebook, we will be posting recorded versions to YouTube as we are able.

As we continue to navigate how best to be the church in our community during the global pandemic and following a derecho, we thank you for your generous support - of Holy Redeemer, our special offering partners, and our neighbors at Edgewood Forest. Offerings have continued to come in via mail, online banking, and dropping off at the church. Thank you!

Continue to follow us through email or on FacebookYouTubeTwitter, and Instagram. If you have any questions, concerns, or prayer requests, please reach out to Pastor Jayne, administrative assistant, Jeff Hand, or council president, Linda Singelstad.

We are all united through Jesus, wherever we may be. We send you blessings and many prayers. You are all greatly missed.

God's peace and continued good health!
