  • Stewardship

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

     

    PRAISING THE LORD WITH GIFTS.  Our Lord gives generously so that we may have life.  In response to His generous giving and because we are baptized into His life, we give generously so that His Kingdom may be extended.  If you wish to receive offering envelopes, please contact the Parish Office, Deaconess or Pastor.

     

    ONLINE 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 parishioners already do this.  You instruct your bank to deduct funds from your account and send the funds directly to Redeemer.

    If you have questions, please communicate with Angela Cisse, Melda Hughes, Naresh Seoprasad (electronic giving) or Pastor.

     

    SEND IT IN THE MAIL.  A number of parishioners contribute money 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.  You can do that, too.

     

    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.

     

    WE NEED FOOD FOR OUR 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

    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.

Every effort is appreciated.  We are so blessed!
