THE PHOTO DIRECTORY IS (FINALLY!) HERE! Be sure to pick up a copy of the brand
new photo directory before you leave today! It contains members and friends from both
Redeemer Park Ridge and Chicago. If you already have an old copy at home, just take the pages
to insert into your own binder. Otherwise, help yourself to a brand new one. A big thank you to
Dick Buchholtz and Molly Porter for all of the picture-taking over the last several months, and to
Tracy Sommerfeldt for painstakingly putting it all together!
A SOUND ALONE: Join us for our next Reimagine Worship gathering next Friday, November
14, at 7:00pm at Redeemer Chicago. Reimagine Worship is a relaxed, coffeehouse-style evening
of music and conversation – a perfect end to the work week. A Sound Alone will be
a participatory, all-vocal evening of communal songs including choruses, chants, and spirituals.
If you have questions or would like to help out, contact Rachel Quest
([email protected]) or James Pessin ([email protected]).
ADULT CLASS: Come to the gym on Sundays at 10:00am for coffee, goodies, and a chance to
think together about prayer. We’re currently using a DVD-discussion series by noted author
Philip Yancey called Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? If you’ve every wrestled with that
question, this is a great opportunity to share your thoughts and hear from others.
CHOIR REHEARSALS: Our choirs are rehearsing for Christmas. Vocal Choir meets on
Wednesdays at 7:00pm, with Bell Choir following at 8:00pm. Rehearsals will continue every
Wednesday leading up until Christmas. If you’re interested in participating, please see Kathie
Rich or Rob Panknin – or just show up! No prior musical training is required and youth are
welcome. The choirs will participate at the late Christmas Eve service, and possibly once on a
Sunday morning in Advent.
CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING BY SERVING OTHERS: Join us at Redeemer Chicago as
we partner with St. Giles Catholic Church for a time of celebration of Thanksgiving and service
to our community. We have three evening service opportunities leading up to Thanksgiving, plus
opportunities on Thanksgiving Day. On Monday evening, Nov. 24, we will be covering the
floors and setting up tables at Redeemer Chicago. On Tuesday evening, we will be decorating
the walls and tables. And, on Wednesday evening, it will be kitchen and service set-up. On
Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 27, we will pack meals for the homebound, following this up with a
community meal for neighbors in need. We will wrap up the celebration by 3:00pm. Sign-up
sheets are available for all volunteer opportunities. Please come as you are able! If you have any
questions, please contact Karen Katamay at 847-824-7944 or [email protected] Thanks!
20/30-SOMETHINGS: SAVE THE DATE: Mark your calendars for our 2015 20/30s retreat,
which will be held at the LaSalle Manor Retreat Center in Plano, Illinois. The retreat will run
Saturday, June 27 - Sunday June 28, with the option to come out on Friday, June 26, for a 2night stay. Details to come!
