Our Story

One generation shall commend your works to another,
    and shall declare your mighty acts.

Psalm 145:4


February 1937
A meeting for consultation on organizing a mission was held at Ansgar Hall, Broadway and Mason Street, in Green Bay. Ansgar Hall was a well-patronized social center and community hall for the influx of Danish settlers to the area. The building, located at 618 South Broadway, was razed in 1956. It was followed by the White Store and presently houses the Brown County Health Department.

July 1937
A building site was purchased on the corner of Shawano Avenue and Twelfth Avenue on Green Bay's near-west side. The membership rolls numbered 53 at the end of 1937.

August 1938

The church building was completed and was dedicated. At the end of the year our membership was 88 communicants.

June 1939
Redeemer was accepted into membership with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. That same year an organ fund was started.

October 1941
A new organ was purchased and installed. Membership had increased to 157 communicants.

January 1944
The Redeemer congregation became self-supporting and its status as a mission ended. Membership had increased to 245 communicants.

January 1950
A new church building was erected on account of membership growth. Redeemer now had a baptized membership of 870, a communicant membership of 535, and a Sunday School enrollment of 305.

September 1960
Redeemer Lutheran School, located at 205 Hudson Street, was built and dedicated. The parsonage on Shawano Avenue was sold and a new parsonage was built.

August 1978
The church on Shawano Avenue was sold and we began having services in the school gymnasium. Ground was broken for our present church building in December.

December 1979
Our new church building at our present location was dedicated.


We strive to fulfill our mission inwardly by feeding on the Word of God through regular attendance at Worship, participating in one of our Bible Study classes, and volunteer our time to assist in one of our several events to become closer as a family in the Body of Christ.

We fulfill our mission outwardly by holding several neighborhood and community events every year and being good neighbors to those around us.

Among these are the Neighborhood Family Funfest, the Pancake & Porkie Breakfast, our Annual Swine & Dine Dinner, seasonal booyah sales, Easter Breakfast, rummage sales, youth events, and so much more!

One of the biggest opportunities for us to fulfill our mission is through Ruby's Pantry, held on the fourth Monday of each month from 4 - 6 pm.

Through Ruby's Pantry we are able to help our neighbors stretch their grocery dollar. We make available an abundance of nutritious food from major food manufacturers and distributors, share a devotional message with our guests, and assist them in loading their food into their vehicle.

...Where we are headed TOMORROW

In this fallen world, none of us knows the specifics of our future.

Our future, as was our past, is in the hands of a good, sovereign, and merciful God so we put our trust in Him to guide us, edify us, and sustain us as the Body of Christ.

We do know from Scripture that Christ will return:

“Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”  Acts 1:11

That there will be a bodily resurrection:

"For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first." 1 Thessalonians 4:16

And that we will all stand in judgement before God:

"Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God..." Romans 14:10

So we continue on in faith, as "...faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen," and "By faith, we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible." Hebrews 11:1,3

So tomorrow, as today, we will be sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ teaching faith & love!

WE INVITE YOU TO Be a part of our story...

Join us every Sunday as we gather to worship together at 9:15 am or join us on Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm. We welcome you in Christ's Love!
