As with visiting any new place, visiting a new church for the first time can cause a lot of anxiety: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go? What is the service going to be like?

We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Services last about an hour. The 8:00 a.m. service follows a traditional Lutheran liturgical format with hymns and organ accompaniment. The 10:45 a.m. service uses a blended liturgical format with spoken responses and keyboard accompaniment. The 6:30 p.m. service is in the Chapel with piano accompaniment. There is often a short children’s message in the morning services. Our sermon is based on one or more of the weekly scripture readings. You will hear about Christ crucified for you and risen from the dead for you in every sermon.
Our Redeemer has two parking lots: the lower level, located between the church and school buildings, and the upper level, located next to the chapel and church office entrances. We recommend that you park on the upper lot if you need handicap access. To use the upper lot on Sunday mornings you will need to enter from the eastern intersection of East Milton and Midland.
You will find a range of dress at Our Redeemer. Some folks wear their “Sunday best” and others dress more casually. On Monday evening everyone is casually dressed. You will be welcome whatever your style!
Children are welcomed during the entire worship service. We have busy bags in the entrance to the sanctuary with crayons, coloring books, etc. We have a special bulletin for children as well. If you feel that your child needs special attention or a break, we have a restroom/cry room in the back. Our ushers will be happy to assist you.
Children between the ages of 3 and grade six meet in the lower level of the church building. Youth who have completed 7th grade through high school age meet in the lower level of the school building in the Youth Room. Adults (and any interested youth!) have two options. One class, led by a layman, meets in the Early Childhood building. Another class, led by Pastor Hageman, meets in the Fellowship Hall (lower level) of the school building. Just ask and we will help you find a class for you!
