Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church - The Bronx, New York.  A Parish of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod where “God’s People Pray.”


Greetings in the Name of Jesus, Redeemer!


It has pleased our Lord to translate His servant, Courtney Ann Lauture Tucker, from this vale of tears to the rest He has prepared for His saints.  Courtney was confirmed at Redeemer and was a part of our parish's youth group, the Soul Stepping Sisters, and many of our religious education programs both as a student and as a helper. Among those she leaves to grieve in hope are her husband Raulston and her two children, Kaitlyn and Chelsea (ages six and four months).  Courtney was 28 years old.


Her funeral plans are as follows:


Friday, August 5, 2016

Viewing at Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church from 4PM to 7PM.

Prayer service at Redeemer at 7PM.


Saturday, August 6, 2016

Viewing at Redeemer from 8AM to 8:45AM.

Funeral (The Holy Eucharist) at Redeemer at 9AM.

Interment at Kensico Cemetery.

Repast at Redeemer after the interment.


Please note that as a result of these plans, the EYES movie trip on August 5 is cancelled and the HEARTS beach trip on August 6 is postponed to the alternate date, August 13.


Let us pray for Raulston, Kaitlyn, Chelsea, and all the members of the family as we grieve in hope, looking forward to the day of the resurrection of all flesh in Christ Jesus our Lord.


Peace and hope in Christ,


Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church, by God’s grace, is a praying community of service that receives, teaches, celebrates and shares Christ Jesus.

What's going on at Redeemer?

SUMMER MONTHS AND ELECTRONIC GIVING.  As the summer begins, electronic giving may be a perfect option for you as you give to the Lord your tithes and offerings. Automatic debit from your checking account, giving via Redeemer’s website and other options are available that can keep you regular and up-to-date without the necessity of writing a check.  If you wish more information about electronic giving, please contact the parish office or communicate with Melda Hughes, Naresh Seoprasad or Pastor.


HOMEWORK HELP NEWS.   Homework Help has helped many young people through the years and for that, we may all give thanks to our Lord.  As public schools have begun more after school programs and as many middle schools and high schools have begun required (and, when not required, "highly encouraged") after school and preparatory programs, it is important for us at Redeemer to remain responsive to the changing needs of people in our neighborhood.  As such, the Executive Board of Homework Help, after prayer and research, has decided to take Homework Help in a different direction.  Instead of offering a set time in the week for a fixed number of hours of tutoring and assistance (like Mondays from 3PM to 6PM), we are offering tutoring on a needs-basis for people who require it.  Appointments with tutors will be made by inquiring students and family members at times that are mutually convenient.  In this way, Redeemer is still making tutoring available but is also responding to the changing needs of those in our neighborhood.  If you or someone you know is in need of tutoring or academic assistance, please contact the parish office (718.324.1288 or, Barbara Workman, LuJuana Butts, Jeanette Coulthurst, Melvin Butts, Deaconess or Pastor.
