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.

In Memoriam – Page Harding Reeder

Version 2

REQUIESCAT IN PACE

Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Page.

Page Harding Reeder, son of Page Reeder and Effie Morsythe, was born in the City of Baltimore on August 17, A. D. 1943. He was baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit on October 24, A. D. 1943 by the Reverend W. G. Polack at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Irvington. He confessed his baptismal faith in the in the Rite of Confirmation on March 25, A. D. 1956 under the Reverend R. L. Landeck and was admitted to the altar to receive the medicine of immortality, Christ’s life giving body and blood. On July 14, A. D. 2015, Page, at the age of 71 years, fell asleep in Jesus. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our brother Page.

A Committal will be held at Crestlawn Cemetery on Tuesday, July 21, A. D. 2015 at 1:00.

On Sunday, October 26, the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer rejoiced in the pure teaching of the Word of God as it celebrated the Reformation. At the Divine Service we sang the beautiful hymns of the Blessed Martin Luther.

Then many members joined with St. Thomas Evangelical Lutheran Church for their Reformation Dinner. Then we all gathered at Martini Lutheran Church for the Reformation Vespers with the Reverend William Weedon preaching.
