As God’s stewards, believing in one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, we, the members of Redeemer Lutheran Church hold our sacred mission to be that of evangelizing and equipping God’s people to live, teach, and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our fellowship, our community, and our world.





Pastor Krienke graduated with a Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary Fort Wayne in 2023. He was placed at Redeemer as his first congregation. 

He was raised on a dairy farm in Minnesota and he looks forward to confessing our rich Lutheran heritage and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all.

Short history of Redeemer

We began as a “Mission” congregation of 20 members on May 23, 1948.  Our name, Redeemer Lutheran Church was selected October 10, 1949 to reflect our faith and we became a chartered member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) in November 1949.  We met in a reconstructed church building in the Wickliffe area until the current property on Canfield-Niles Road was purchased in 1967.     Redeemer’s new church building was dedicated on November 16, 1969.  An addition was dedicated on September 16, 1984 to add more office space and a spacious narthex.  Our Christian family continues to "Live", "Teach" and "Proclaim" the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our fellowship, our community, and our world.
