The Psalmist writes, "Praise the Lord! I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright and in the congregation.  The works of the Lord are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them." (Psalm 111:1-2)

This inspired Word of God sounds the note of joy that we have at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church(LCMS) in Jacksonville, Illinois as we consider the many blessings that the Lord continues to bestow upon our congregation through the Word and the Sacraments. Please join with us every Sunday at 9:00 A.M. for the Divine Service as we receive God’s blessings of forgiveness and life in Christ Jesus.  Our services and hymns are taken from the Lutheran Service Book(LSB). Please also join us for Sunday School and Adult Bible Class at 10:15 each Sunday morning. I know you will find a warm welcome at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. Your presence among us will also be a real blessing to our congregation as together we worship our Redeemer!

Holy Communion


Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third Sundays of each month.

If you are a confirmed member of an LCMS congregation, you are welcome to attend the Lord's Supper. Out of concern for true unity and a clear understanding of the nature of the Lord's Supper, our church practices close communion.
