Our Present

In 2015, we installed an Elevator in our narthex so that all can have access to our lower level Social Hall for church fellowship activities. Fellowship is important to us because we seek to be a church of Jesus Christ where YOU CAN BELONG to a family of loving, caring people. Founded in 1860 with forty-one dedicated members, Redeemer's Church has developed into a flourishing congregation. We welcome you to visit us and discover and grow with us.
