  • Stewardship

    “Contribute to the needs of the saints.” (Romans 12:13)

     

    ASSISTING FIRE VICTIMS.  We continue to collect funds to assist our sister—Jeanette Daure—as her apartment building suffered a fire.  Thank you to those who have contributed.  If you wish to contribute, you may make your check payable to “Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church” and put “fire” on the envelope and/or on the memo line so that we may get the funds to Jeanette and her family.

     

    IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT THE MONEY; OUR LORD MAKES IT ALL ABOUT YOU.  Our Lord gives us money, food, clothing, shelter, family, friends and much more.  By the power of the Holy Spirit, we give our lives in service to Him, giving our time, talent and money for the Kingdom’s extension among us.  As the Body of Christ, giving is part ofour nature; we do so because nothing belongs to us and all belongs to God.  If you wish to receive offering envelopes, please contact the Parish Office, Deaconess or Pastor.

     

    ELECTRONIC GIVING.

    You may give electronically to Redeemer in two ways:

    1. Online giving.  Simply go to our website (www.redeemerlutheranbronx.org) to “DONATE” and follow the instructions indicated.

    2. Directly from your bank.  A number of Redeemer parishioners already do this.  You instruct your bank to deduct funds from your account and send the funds directly to Redeemer.  It can be as simple as designating Redeemer as one of the “bills” that you pay on your account and you give the bank Redeemer’s name and address so that the money is sent at intervals of your preference.

    All electronic donations are considered received at the time the donations are made and cannot be designated to past or future dates.  If you have questions, please communicate with Shoba Rampersaud, Melda Hughes, Naresh Seoprasad (electronic giving) or Pastor.

     

    THANK GOD FOR THE MAIL.  A number of parishioners contribute monetary offerings by sending a check via the United States Postal Service to Redeemer, especially when their work schedules or other issues prevent them from coming to church regularly.  Some even drop their envelope/envelopes by Redeemer by putting them in the mail slot of the Parish Office door.  You can do that, too.

     

    PEW ENVELOPES ARE AVAILABLE.  If you have forgotten your offering envelope at home or if you do not have one, you may use the pew envelopes for your offerings.   They are located in the hymnal racks right in front of you when you are seated in a pew for worship.  If you have an envelope number, please include that envelope number on the envelope and check along with any contribution you make so that accurate records may be provided to you of your giving.

     

    SOME REQUESTS CONNECTED WITH USING OFFERING ENVELOPES.  As you use offering envelopes, the following will be helpful for Redeemer as we keep records for contributors:

    1. Discard all envelopes from the previous year.  Do not use envelopes from previous years.

    2. Do not change the dates on the envelopes; keep the dates that are printed on them.

    3. Use the offering envelopes you were assigned this year for your monetary contributions this year.

    4. Include your envelope number with any special contributions you make.

    5. Unless a contribution has been designated to a special offering, it will be allocated to the general fund.

    Thank you for all your contributions as Redeemer “receives, teaches, celebrates and shares Christ Jesus.”

     

    QUARTERLY STATEMENTS.  Quarterly giving statements are available from our Financial Secretary.  Be sure to remember that the quarters are

    The First Quarter ends on March 24, 25, 2018.

    The Second Quarter ends on June 24, 2018.

    The Third Quarter ends on September 30, 2018.

    The Fourth Quarter & 2018 ends on December 31, 2018.

    You may receive the statement a month or so after the quarter ends, but do remember that those statements only include the giving from the specified quarter of the year.

     

    FOOD PANTRY.   As our food pantry continues to be used by people in our neighborhood, parishioners are asked to donate to our food pantry.

    +canned vegetables and beans

    +canned stews

    +canned soups of all kinds (chicken noodle, chunky chicken, vegetable, etc.)

    +canned ravioli or spaghetti and meatballs

    +canned fruit

    +canned fruit

    +canned solid chicken

    +canned tuna

    +Vienna sausage

    +canned tomato sauce for beans

    Please do not bring food that is boxed or bagged.  Please make sure items are in cans.

    Thank you for your help with this vital gift to people in our neighborhood.

    The Redeemer Food Pantry is open on the second Thursday of each month from 1PM to 3PM.

     

    Looking for a Project to Fund?

    Please prayerfully consider these.

     

    THE MUSIC FUND.  Now that Theodora has been installed, there remain a few projects on it that need attention this year to make it even better.  One important project is the replacement of a rank of pipes in the pedal that will help the organ sound even better.  Pipe organs require regular maintenance (tuning, servicing, etc.).  We also have other music needs in our parish.  Your contributions to the Music Fund support the music of our parish as we serve our Lord and our neighborhood.

     

    UNDERCROFT RENOVATION.  This multi-faceted project includes the following projects:

     + updating and renovating the kitchen

     + installing new flooring for the undercroft and kitchen

     + adding permanent electronic equipment for projection capability

     +air conditioning the undercroft

    Our parish’s celebration of the 500th anniversary of the first Lutheran Reformation and our parish’s 90th anniversary will enable us to do this needed work.  Make your donations today.

     

    OUTDOOR TELEVISION.  As people have screens in their pockets with their electronic devices, people are accustomed to looking at screens to learn information.  Many people drive and walk by Redeemer every day.  An outdoor television could show pictures, videos and announcements so that those who pass by could learn about what our Lord is doing at Redeemer and see how they could become part of this praying community of service.  $20,000 would make this work.

     

    LIGHTNING RODS.  Our insurance company wants us to install lightning rods on our building.  It is about being prepared.  The estimate we received awhile ago was $10,000.  Protecting the building would be a wise investment.

     

    IMRPOVED LIGHTING.  Both the Catechist Rosa Room and Our Lady’s Chapel are in need of additional lighting to set a prayerful mood in the room and to facilitate the use of computer technology.  A few thousand dollars could get this project completed and behind us.

     

    STAINED GLASS WINDOW PROTECTION.  Those who visit Redeemer often marvel at the windows depicting stories in Christ’s life.  They are very expensive.  Each window pane costs $900 to replace, so stained glass window protection seems like a no-brainer.  That protection costs $30,000 to install.  Each day we remain unprotected is a day we take a chance that we do not need to take.  Please help us preserve the story for future generations and contribute to this project.

     

    A NEW FENCE.  The wooden fence in our front yard is rotting.  It is time to replace it.  When we do, we shall extend it to the refurbished green space on the east side of the building.  The fence’s installation will help our life together and keep our little ones (and big ones) safe as we navigate the property our Lord has entrusted to us.

  • Fellowship

    “So we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of each other.” (Romans 12:5)

     

    FOOD AND BEVERAGES AFTER THE LITURGIES.  After the 7PM and 8AM Liturgies, please join us for refreshments in the narthex (the back of the church).  After the 11AM Liturgy, please join us for refreshments in the undercroft (downstairs).  If you are interested in hosting fellowship, assisting with set up, assisting with clean up or contributing goods, please communicate with Deaconess or Pastor for the 7PM Liturgy, with Janet Swaby for the 8AM Liturgy, or with Samantha Hewitt for the 11AM Liturgy.

     

    YOU CAN DO THIS.  We need help with setting up, cleaning up, washing and drying dishes after the 11AM Liturgy.  If you can scrape off a plate, wipe down a table or scrub a pot, we need you!  So, if you see Samantha Hewitt or Claudette Morrison, just let them know you can help. Every effort is appreciated.  We are so blessed!
