OPPORTUNITIES FOR MISSIONS

Now that the new year is here, there are several opportunities for missions here at Redeemer!

The Redeemer Lutheran mission quilters meet every Monday at 9:00 a.m. No experience needed, just a willingness to help. Last year they were able to send 85 quilts to the Lutheran World Relief.

The Friendship Feast is another opportunity for missions. Held the 2rd Monday of the month at the First Christian Church, the members cook and serve those that are in need of a free, good homecooked meal. If you would like to help with this very needed mission, please contact Rosalind Burger.

The Braille workers will meet January 8 at 9:00 a.m. at our Savior Lutheran Church, Tulsa. Please consider joining in this worthy mission project. All are welcome!

For ongoing missions consider joining the Lutheran Women in Missions. The women meet the 3rd Thursday of the month at 9:30 a.m. They support several missions throughout Oklahoma and the world.

 

BIBLE STUDY

Pastor Honeycutt is leading a Bible study on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. at the office house. The study will be based on the Scriptures for the next Sunday’s service. All are invited to delve deeper into God’s word.

The Lutheran Women in Mission have a Bible study every month on the 4th Monday evening of the month in the office house. The Bible study is led by Kim Cobb. For more information please contact Kim.
