ABOUT US

 
 
 
 
 
 
On January 10, 1954, we held our first service in a church facility at 49th and Peoria. The present church was built in 1967 and enlarged in 1994. Harold E. Brockhoff served the congregation as its first pastor from 1954 until his retirement in 1994. Our current pastor Scott Burmeister was called to Christ the Redeemer and was installed on June 30, 2013.
 
Our worship times are 8:15 AM Communion 1st & 3rd Sunday and 10:45 AM Communion 2nd & 4th Sunday. Communion is offered at both services on 5th Sundays.
Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church is a fellowship of Christians & a member congregation of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod.
 
We at Christ The Redeemer Lutheran Church of Tulsa, Oklahoma are dedicated to Leading People into a Living Relationship with Jesus Christ.
