Great News! Leadership at Redeemer decided to begin in-person services on Sunday, June 7th!
It won't quite be service as normal. Several practices you should be aware of.
1) We are only going to use every other pew.
2) Only family members can share the same pew. (Two couples may share a pew only if they both agree to it and they are on the far ends of the pew.)
3) Because of the limited seating, we will likely need a second service.
4) So we do not all come to the same service, you will need to let pastor know ahead of time which service you are attending.
5) Do only what you feel safe and comfortable doing.
If you are not ready to worship in person, you can still worship online.
If you want, you can wear a mask and gloves.
Any questions and/or concerns, please contact pastor and let him know.
The only Bible Study being offered is a Zoom Bible Study on Tuesdays @7pm. Members should have received an invite by email. If you have not, please contact Pastor Schwartz to receive the Zoom invite.
You can receive God's Word virtually at our church's YouTube page.
One thing that shouldn't be overlooked during this time is our offerings to God. Though we cannot meet at church, there are still bills and expenses to be made. More importantly though, your offering is part of your spiritual worship to God, and should not suffer at any time.
An update on offerings.
It was previously mentioned that Thrivent was matching a portion of offerings/donations that were given through them until June or until they reached they're cap of 1 million dollars. They already hit their cap of 1 million dollars, so they are no longer matching a portion of the offerings/donations given through them. They ARE STILL covering the service charge so your full offering is given to Redeemer.
If you would like to give online, giving through thrivent seems to be the best still. Follow the line here: https://bit.ly/2UWg3BF
Or if you prefer to give in person, please either mail or drop off your offering at the First National Bank by Walmart. Our Church President works there and will make sure that it is deposited into the Church's account. The address is
First National Bank
2900 Airport Rd,
Pierre, SD 57501
God's blessing to you and stay healthy.
