New Redeemer Website
We are working on a major revision of our Church and School website. The home page URL will continue to be www.redeemer-lutheran.net, but there will be several improvements including a new home page with better graphics and navigation, a mobile friendly site, links to social media, etc. and cross-links between Church and School websites. We are actively looking for one or more volunteers to help us keep the site fresh with updated content, announcements, and upcoming events as well as weekly sermon podcasts and occasional videos. If you would like to help, please contact Wayne Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Help a Child Go to School
The Redeemer Lutheran Preschool Board has established a Preschool scholarship fund. We have had families visit our school who simply cannot afford the tuition and were not approved for governmental assistance. We would like to offer these families a good Christian education for their children. To donate to this fund, please make your check payable to Redeemer Lutheran Church with “Preschool Scholarship Fund” on the memo line. Thank you for your continued support of Redeemer Lutheran Preschool.
Preschool Bridges for Jesus (PBJ)
We are growing! The number of students is increasing and so is our need for more PBJ partners. We are looking for Redeemer members who will share Christ with our students by attending preschool events and send greeting cards. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Ellen Prior at (714) 651-1881. Your participation is greatly appreciated!
Nursery Attendants Needed
WE HAVE AN URGENT NEED FOR NURSERY ATTENDANTS! You can play quietly with small children so their parents can attend the service. We need nursery attendants for the 11:00 AM services. If you would like to help or to get more information, see Wayne Pereboom, or call the church office (714) 846-6330.
How would you like a way to donate to the Church that won’t cost you anything? We have scrip cards available for places you shop every week, and a percentage will be donated to the Church or Preschool - your choice. Check it out on the patio after services.

Bus Passes for the Homeless
As you may know, the number of homeless people here on the west side of Orange County is growing. We at Redeemer want to do everything we can to help those in need. One way we can assist them is to provide bus passes so they can get to Lutheran Social Services in Garden Grove and to other facilities who have the resources to help them get the services that will meet their needs. A 10-pack of one day passes is $45.00. If you would like to donate any dollar amount, make your check payable to Redeemer and write “Bus Passes” in the memo line. Another way we can assist them is to provide gift cards for food or groceries to those in need. To donate, make your check payable to Redeemer and write “Gift Cards” in the memo line.
