Happy Thanksgiving Everyone – I know it is a little early, but it is time for us to start planning for our Thanksgiving Day Dinner at Redeemer Lutheran Church.  All are invited.  It is a community Thanksgiving Day Dinner to share with our military, first responders and anyone who would like to come for food and fellowship.  This year, we will deliver meals to our shut-ins.

The doors will open at 10:45AM and serving begins at 11:00AM concluding at 12:30PM.  Please call Cindy Bailey at 850-380-4979 to RSVP so she can get a head count making food buying easier.  If you have any questions, please contact Cindy Bailey.  Thanks

Walk for Childhood Leukemia - Come walk with us on Thursday, 31 October at 9:00AM as we have a Walk to End Childhood Leukemia.  We are walking this year to raise funds to aid in the research to cure childhood leukemia.  Students will be able to dress in RED.  Mark your calendars and bring your tennis shoes to walk with the RLS students.

Notes from Pastor Cole

Warm Back-to-School (& Church) Greetings! Welcome to our website!

I don’t believe in "good luck" or mere coincidences, because God is the bringer of our good fortune, and He always has a purpose for our connections.  Perhaps He brought YOU to this website today for a special reason!

Along with the people here at Redeemer, I pray that our internet connection today will provide you with blessings! We at Redeemer also pray that God's Holy Spirit will guide you in knowing the blessings of Jesus too. For further opportunities to get to know our Redeemer and then receive more of His blessings, we invite you to come and gather together with us here at our church and school! 

Please consider joining us in worship this next Sunday morning as we continue to celebrate God's gift to us in the Life of His Risen Son! In this Season of Pentecost - God shares Christ's victory with all who believe and confess Jesus as Lord and Savior! The Holy Spirit has been sent to bring heaven's gift of new life to those who believe the Gospel of our Lord, and who are baptized into Christ Jesus. God's gifts to the Church are shared with those who gather together for worship in our local congregations. Jesus' True Bodily Presence is shared with us in Divine Worship with Holy Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month. We also hold services of The Word with Prayer & Praise on the other alternating weekends.   

You are welcomed to join us as our guest during this Harvest Season. 

Come to share our joy in worship and to grow in God's Word along with us. God's blessings are found where His Holy Spirit gathers people in the name of our Lord Jesus! May the Joy of the LORD be yours today! 

The Peace of our Redeemer be with you  ~ 

Pastor Cole 

Martin Luther's Seal - Expressive of His Theology

The Seal of Martin Luther was designed by Martin Luther himself.  He explained his design in the following words:

     The first thing expressed in my seal is a cross, black, within the heart, to put me in mind that faith in Christ crucified saves us.  "For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness."

     Now, although the cross is black, mortified, and intended to cause pain, it does not change the color of the heart, does not destroy nature -- i.e., does not kill, but keeps alive.  "For the just shall live by faith," -- by faith in the Savior.

     But this heart is fixed upon the center of a white rose, to show that faith causes joy, consolation and peace.  The rose is white, not red, because white is the ideal color of all angels and blessed spirits.

     This rose, moreover, is fixed in a sky-colored ground, to denote that such joy of faith in the spirit is but an earnest beginning of heavenly joy to come, as anticipated and held by hope, though not yet revealed.

     And around this ground base is a golden ring, to signify that such bliss in heaven is endless, and more precious than all joys and treasures, since gold is the best and most precious metal.  Christ, our dear Lord, He will give grace unto eternal life.
