Church Marks Celebrates 100 Years of Service

Rev. Heather Sugden, pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church presents The Rev. Dr. Moses Suah-Dennis of ALLIA (Association of Liberian Lutherans in the Americas) with the proceeds from the congregation’s special Mission 2024 Campaign.

For 100 years the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer has established itself with a presence in Vineland by providing a place of worship and fellowship open to all. These 100 years were recently celebrated with a special Anniversary Service and Celebration led by The Reverend Tracie Bartholomew, ELCA Bishop of New Jersey.

The day included the presentation of funds from Redeemer’s Mission 2024 Campaign to Reverend Dr. Moses Suah-Dennis toward the renovation costs of a building at the Lutheran University in Liberia where they are developing a School of Agriculture and a School of Nursing.

In the past, Redeemer membership has assisted with the building of a Habitat House and renovating a building at the Cumberland Family Shelter as well as making care packages for our soldiers. Members have also addressed the needs of the people in the Vineland area by providing children’s day care at Little Acres, residence care for seniors and the disabled at Luther Acres and guidance through the Vineland Counseling Service.

Redeemer continues to provide volunteers and/or financial support to Code Blue, the Vineland Soup Kitchen, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cumberland and Salem Counties, Vineland Veteran’s Memorial Home and Mission Teens along with special projects addressing the needs of our local school children and our furry friends. Each summer there is a series of outdoor concerts, each of which benefits a different not-for-profit organization.

Services continue each Sunday at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. with an education hour at 9:15 a.m.
