COVID-19 Protocols

Current COVID-19 Protocols at Redeemer

In order to ensure the health and safety of our community, Redeemer’s building remains CLOSED except for essential functions such as worship preparation, facilities maintenance, the Midtown Lutheran Preschool, and the Lutheran Community Food Ministry.

Effective March 14, 2021 and in accordance with the latest CDC guidance, small groups of fully vaccinated* members of Redeemer may gather for study or service once their event has been approved by the COVID-19 Task Force. 

Please have one member of the group submit the form below on behalf of the group.

*Fully vaccinated means a person has received both shots of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine AND two weeks has past since the date of the final required shot.

Everyone entering the building at Redeemer for any reason MUST first check-in online by answering the applicable questionnaire found below.


Each time a vendor, member or LCFM volunteer comes to Redeemer for any reason, he or she must complete this questionnaire before entering the building. There are no exceptions.


Each time a staff member comes to Redeemer for any reason, he or she must complete this questionnaire before entering the building.

COVID-19 Task Force

Redeemer’s COVID-19 Task Force was formed in Spring 2020 and is made up of representatives from Redeemer’s clergy, staff, and members of the congregation.  Together they have painstakingly reviewed the latest guidance from public health and medical experts, the ELCA and our Southeastern Synod, and the best practices put in place by comparably sized churches, businesses and civic organizations.
