Big Tent Day at Rogers State University

A special note of thanks to everyone who helped prepare for “Tent Day”.  Everything went well, Students were given pens, small note pads, bookmarks and paper fans with the church information on them. We also gave out candy and Ramen noodles. Everyone we spoke with was appreciative. We gave out a floer and map to many students.


LWML is now ready to accept any donations of Lutheran World Relief (LWR) items for the Personal Care, School Supply, Baby Care and Fabric kits that members may wish to support. A collection box is labeled and located in the church Narthex.

We have begun to pack boxes with the completed kits and quilts for the shipping date of October 2 and your donations now would allow us to be able to pack boxes sooner-rather-than-later!! Members were provided with information of this annual mission project collection with a pink paper note in your church mailbox and these are also available on the table under the bulletin board in the narthex of the church.

As always, Thank You for your donations toward this project...


Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; and His love endures forever

1 Corinthians 16:34

As Christians, we are blessed with the knowledge that we are His dear children. We take comfort in knowing He is always present in every circumstance.

Life is full of obstacles that challenges us but as believers we know He will see us through. We live under and are blessed by God’s grace.

We have a peace that the world does not give, the assurance that our sins are forgiven. God’s son died for our sins, rose again and open the gates of heaven to us.

God’s love transforms us! As we continue to make our earthly journey, may we live our lives in a way that others will see God’s love in our hearts. We are inspired to share the “good news” of salvation to our children, family, friends, co-workers and others.

To God we give thanks and all the glory!

We are excited to start Braille once again.

Our first day is September 12 at Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church located at 2550 E 71 St. in Tulsa.

Those of us who have sight are able to work together to prepare books of the Bible in various languages for the blind. It is a privilege that we take to heart as we each play a part in creating pages that those who are blind can read with their fingertips. What a blessing it is that we can bring the “lite” of God’s gossip to the bind and they receive each book with gratefulness.

We are in need of more volunteers! Car pooling can be arranged. We start at 9:00 am and conclude around 1:30 pm. We bring our lunches, drinks and treats at break time are provided.

Prayerfully consider volunteering. It’s the second Tuesday of the month September through May.


This year we have seen more requests for food from our food pantry and Redeemer has responded with generous donations of food and funds to buy food. We just wanted to say a hearty Thank You and God Bless You for being a wonderfully caring congregation!

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

Matthew 25:35-40


Save the date for the German Dinner October 6th. The ladies of the LWML will be once again hosting the German Dinner serving lunch (11:00 am – 1:00 pm) and dinner (5:00 pm – 7:00 pm). This fund raiser will help the LWML support the many mission projects both on the local and national level. Many hands are needed to make this a success. If you want to help or have any questions, please contact any of the LWML members. Come join us for a yummy meal!

It’s that time of year again! We are able to be a Christian presence.

We have an abundance of handouts to give to our Claremore neighbors. Volunteers are needed to prepare on a future workday.
