This newsletter is published monthly. Dear Friends in Christ, I recently received an email from a friend of mine from my previous parish. I really would like you to hear a portion of it. Darkness may best be defined as an absence of light; cold may best be defined as an absence of heat; and perhaps the decline of a nation may best be defined as the absence, or withdrawal, of God. Nature cannot tolerate a vacuum and neither will societies; as a void is created, something will fill it. As a nation drifts further from its spiritual moorings and away from the One True God, it leaves a vacuum that humanism, secularism and any other host of man-made “isms” rush in to fill. The hand of Providence pulls back, leaving only the evils which fill the heart of man; which then, man fashions into a god of his own image and making. Sir Alex Fraser Tyler, a Scottish jurist and historian, describes this vacuum in stages which are so subtle that one hardly recognizes the pull on their society until they are so sucked in that it would almost seem hopeless, in his writing of The Cycle of Nations. "From bondage to spiritual faith. From spiritual faith to great courage. From courage to liberty. From liberty to abundance. From abundance to selfishness. From selfishness to complacency. From complacency to apathy. From apathy to dependency. From dependency back again into bondage." A s the American people during the American Revolution embraced God and His divine Hand of Providence, so the French devoted themselves to secularism. The results of those revolutions and the societies which followed were vastly different. As America has left her spiritual moorings and has been embracing humanism and secularism, the destinations we seem to be heading for, if we are not careful, will be one in the same. America has refused to heed the warning of William Penn and is finding the truth of his words to be shackles around our liberties of today, including our religious liberties: A people who will not be ruled by God are destined to be ruled by tyrants. Jesus suffered, died and rose again to make us spiritually and eternally free. For over two centuries we have enjoyed great religious freedom as citizens in the United States. While no one can take away our spiritual and our eternal freedom, many are working hard to take away the civil religious freedom that we have taken for granted for too long. This is not about politics. But if we hold only to politics, and party lines, and do not focus on what we will lose in the effort to be “tolerant”, we will lose more freedom than we can imagine. If Islam rushes in to fill the vacuum, our civil freedoms as Christians will be stripped away completely. As Christian citizens we must remain ever vigilant and ever faithful to our Lord Jesus Christ, and steadfast and immovable when it comes to following Him. In Christ’s love, Church Council Meeting Minutes Redeemer Lutheran Church Church Council Meeting Minutes January 13, 2015 The meeting was called to order by Chairman Dan Schreiber at 6:30. Pastor opened the meeting with a devotion from Psalm 27. Introduction/Installation of new board members: All Board members introduced themselves. A motion was made by Jim Wirch to appoint Brad Van Lannen as Chairman-elect. Elmer Nienow seconded the motion and the motion was approved. Pastor’s Report: Pastor shared the Church attendance volumes for the month of December including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve services. During the month of December there were (3) adult Bible classes, (3) Confirmation classes, (4) hospital visits, (5) shut in visits, (2) nursing home services, (2) counseling sessions, (2) jail visits. There were no new members or other membership changes made. There was one funeral (Ann Caldie: 12/2/14). Current baptized membership is 624; current communicant membership is 483.

School Board Report: Tom Jablonski shared a booklet that he has put together regarding ideas for use of the school building. The booklet outlines the differences between pre-school programs and day care programs. It outlines all such programs in the Green Bay area. Tom shared that he has been working with Lloyd Carpenter regarding what it would take to get these programs up and running. Trinity Update: Brad shared information regarding The Love Boat Dinner and Gala to be held February 21, 2015; the Eagle Fund which kicked off in December; Trinity was mentioned in a news story which aired on NBC 26 and the open house which was held at Trinity on January 15, 2015. 2015 tuition fees were discussed. Board of Elders’ Report: The Board of Elders met on January 5, 2015. Discussion of “The 72,” an LCMS group of trained volunteers that helps congregations boost their outreach in their local communities and helps with member retention, was continued. The next step is to contact the group to let them know of our interest in meeting with them. Pastor Pett is in the process of completing an online contact form to start the process and will report back to the Board. Worship attendance was discussed and it was noted that attendance increased every week through the Advent season as members were attending both the Sunday and Wednesday services. The Board will be reviewing some historical attendance information in the future. There will be a new member class held in mid-February for several new members. There is still a need for at least two more Elders and there are several open Board positions for the congregation. Dates for the Elder weekend retreat were discussed. Board of Mission and Ministry Report: Pastor reported that the Advent Fellowship sponsored by the Board of Mission and Ministry went well as did the Giving Tree which sponsored St. John’s homeless shelter. Pastor reported that when the gifts were delivered to St. John’s shelter, they were very appreciative of the congregation’s efforts to support them. Board of Property Report: Perry Wegener reported the following: the school’s north entrance door will be installed soon; the downspout project is done- the landscaping and parking lot resurfacing will be done this spring/summer; water heaters are here for the front of Church and will be installed soon. The Board is still looking into the options of a chairlift/elevator. Chris Stewart has joined the Board. New officers for the Board include Perry Wegener- Board Chair; Jeremy Thyes-Vice Chair; Fidel Arellano-Secretary. Financial Updates: Mortgage LCEF balance is $372,725. Cougar LCEF balance is $41,417. Adopt a bill period ending 12/30/13 was $4,569.72. Adopt a bill for Fiscal Year 2014 was $5,139.49. There are 40 Adopt a bills that were picked up but not paid totaling $2,254.95. The checkbook balance as of 1-10-15 is $1,119.94. We were able to pay $6,000.00 back to the loan that we took from our own savings account. Old Business: Congregational Meeting Highlights: There are still several vacant positions open on the School Board, Board of Mission and Ministry and Board of Property. The revision to the Constitution to change Board members terms to 2 years; 2 terms max and the term of the Chair positions to 2 years in the role was given first approval at the recent Congregational meeting. We will need a second approval at the next Congregational meeting in order to make a final change to the Constitution. The Board of Elders had generated a final list of members to be removed from the church roster and it was put to a final vote and approval by the congregation. The Church Council needs to take another look at responses received from recent interviews regarding Redeemer’s Strategic Plan. The Council will discuss key 2 | FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER Financial Report elements to be included in the plan (1-2 year plan and 3-5 year plan). “The 72”: Pastor completed the paperwork needed to start the process of working with this LCMS group. He did get an initial call from them and they discussed congregational needs. An application will be sent to us. Pastor reported that one of the steps that we will need to complete is a self study of our needs in the congregation. Options for use of School: A brief discussion was held regarding options for use of our school property. Ideas discussed were use as a warming shelter, pre-school/daycare; food/toiletry pantry; Ruby’s Pantry program. Ruby’s Pantry program is already in place in other parts of the state and would like to expand to the Green Bay area. In this program, pantry items are supplied and volunteers are needed to distribute them. A suggestion to send members of the Board of Mission and Ministry to Greenville WI to see Ruby’s Pantry in action was discussed. All of the aforementioned ideas will need further investigation and discussion. New Business: Discussion was held regarding the fact that new terms for Board members as defined by Constitutional changes will apply to current Board members/Chair persons. Pastor reported that Faith Lutheran is bringing in a new DCE and they have approached Redeemer to consider sharing this position with them. The DCE would take the lead in running Sunday School, VBS, Junior and High School programs as well as other areas of need in our congregational educational programs. Following a discussion, a motion was made to explore the possibility of bringing on a part-time (1/4 time for Redeemer) DCE in conjunction with Faith. The motion was seconded and approved. This will need to go to the Board of Mission and Ministry to develop a job description. It will also need to go to the next Voter’s meeting for discussion and approval. Pastor brought forth some information regarding an option for electronic giving in the form of a kiosk in the church entryway. Pastor has a pamphlet with more information. He will also check into the cost, etc. It was shared that Mary Pett is Redeemer’s delegate at N.E.W. Lutheran High School. The next Executive Committee meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 10, 2015. The meeting was adjourned at 7:53 and closed with a prayer. Respectfully submitted, Jennifer Nehring Congregational Secretary FINANCIAL REPORT December 2014 offerings were $38,301, compared to $22,622 in November. Total December income was $44,024 including offerings, “Adopt a Bill”, debt reduction, and Thrivent choice. Total expenses paid were $48,304, including $7,598 repaid to our savings accounts. Fiscal year to date offerings total $140,879, compared to budgeted offerings to date of $141,750. As of the end of November our mortgage balance is down to $372,725 and the Cougar Care loan is down to $41,417. We had hoped to finish repaying the money we borrowed from our designated savings accounts in December, but our income was a little lower than predicted. Holiday offerings were down a bit but the main difference is that we received less from Thrivent programs. We are thankful that we are still current on our bills and obligations. Through November 2014, we have received $61,396 through our Partnership in Ministry (PIM) campaign which means we have received $12,279 (20%) to use for outreach activities to spread God’s Word, $24,558 (40%) toward projects (including security cameras, classroom renovations, chair lifts and parking lot resurfacing) and $24,558 (40%) to pay down the mortgage principal. The total amount pledged for the three year campaign was $101,348 so we have received about 60.6% of the amount pledged at the end of the first two years. For those who made a pledge there is a box toward the end of the statement which shows how much each had contributed as of the end of the calendar year.

REDEEMER LUTHERAN CHURCH | 5 3 THIS - N -THAT MEN’S RETREAT If you did not sign up for the 2015 Men’s Retreat you still have time to do so. Let Jim know by February 8 that you would like to come. If you cannot make the whole weekend, we do have a Saturday only registration. The theme for this year’s retreat is, “The Samson Syndrome.” It is based on a book with the same name and was written by Pastor Mark Atteberry from Kissamee, Florida. Working with men from his own congregation, Pastor Atteberry sees many of the traits Samson had are the same traits men living in 2015 face in their every day lives. Here are some of these traits: disregarding boundaries that God has set; lust; big egos; taking foolish risks; intimacy; taking God’s blessings for granted; losing sight of God’s big picture; can’t figure out why God put us here on earth. Pastor Atteberry offers specific positive suggestions how men living in 2015 can overcome these traits by completely focusing their eyes heavenward as they face the problems of living in today’s world. Any questions about the retreat or last minute details regarding the retreat call Jim at 414-462-5871 or e-mail jnrberg67 @gmail.com 2015 CAMP LUTHER SUMMER REGISTRATION IS OPEN An exciting summer is planed for children PreK through High School.
