Building Expansion

New Facilities Coming in 2021

NURTURE ▪ BUILD ▪ SERVE is an effort to expand the facilities of our church and school so that they have capacity to support our growing ministries. Our Redeemer has sown the seeds of God’s Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, including those in our community. 

We want to take advantage of the opportunities God has laid before us to serve more people and connect them to God’s Word. A building is just a tool. That is why our theme for this building project is NURTURE ▪ BUILD ▪ SERVE. We’re nurturing God’s youngest disciples. We’re building to serve.

Ministry at Our Redeemer

Our Redeemer Lutheran Church and School have served the southwest side of Madison since 1975. ORLS has a long history of excellence in Christian education for pre-school through 8th grade. Within the last four years, the Early Childhood program has expanded to offer care for infants through four-year-olds in the community. The facility expansion brings excitement, however, the ability to serve more families with the gospel remains central to Our Redeemer's mission.
