Resources for Family Prayer

Due to the snow many will not be able to safely attend the Divine Service that will be taking place at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. To provide the blessing of the Word of God to these families provided here is an Order for Family Prayer and a Sermon by the Blessed Martin Luther that can be read during the Family Prayer. We will all be united in the communion of saints through the Holy Word of God and by prayer. The readings, prayers, and sermon are for Septuagesima Sunday.

With the encouragement of the Synod, the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer will be joining many other churches by praying an Office of the Litany in Remembrance of Abortion Victims at 12 Noon on Saturday, September 12. All are invited join with us.

“A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”

The icon, a copy of a 14th century fresco, depicts St. Rachel weeping over the killing the Holy Innocents after the Nativity of our Lord.

Singing from our VBS

During our Vacation Bible School we learned the sainted Paul Gerhardt’s hymn “All Christians Who Have Been Baptized,” LSB 596. We learned a new stanza each day. This was recorded on Thursday. Even some of the preschoolers knew the first few stanzas by the end of the week. The Pastor begs you to ignore his singing in the background. Enjoy this beautiful hymn.
