STUDENT LOAN REPAYMENT FUND

Pursuing a career in service to the Lord through the church is a fulfilling opportunity, but it is not an inexpensive choice. Those who pursue professional church work many times incur educational debt, just like anyone else may do. Repayment of educational debt is often made more difficult by the more modest salaries of church workers, compared to other professions.

In order to encourage and retain our professional church workers here at Christ the Redeemer, several years ago the congregation established a fund to assist our Pastors, DCEs and other synodically-trained church workers in repaying their student loans. This fund relies on the donations of our members here at CTR. The fund is currently in need of additional funds. Please prayerfully consider a designated donation to this cause. You may place your gift in the weekly offering with a designation of “Student Loan Fund” or you may give your gift directly to one of the Elders, and we will ensure that it is deposited in the correct fund.

Thank you for your past generosity and for ongoing support.

– Jim Holt, Elder Chair

 

OUTREACH

A shopping list of needs for The Coffee Bunker, South Tulsa Community House and Tulsa Saints is now available on the online directory.   Look in “Additional pages” and click on “Outreach”.
Please leave donations in the “Donation Station” in the West Hallway.

Eyeglasses donations Thank you! Thanks to all of you for donations of glasses, sunglasses, and soft-sided glass cases! This past week we mailed off 2 boxes with 235 pairs of glasses and numerous cases to MOST Ministries for their eyeglass clinics mission trips which have resumed following the lifting of travel restrictions. Each team takes 3000 pairs when they go. We almost have another box to send them so please look in your house for unused glasses—prescription, readers or sunglasses and consider what they might do to help people do their jobs, their housework and reading. You can also buy $1.25 readers at Dollar Tree. Just make sure they have sturdy frames.
Soft-sided glass cases are also sent.

LWR school kit list can be found here or on the online directory.   Look in “Additional pages” and click on “Lutheran World Relief – School Kits”.
