On May 10, 1964, Pastor Besalski of First Lutheran along with a small group of pioneering individuals held the first congregational meeting at St James Episcopal Church. Forty-one worshipers attended that first service and Lake City Lutheran Church was born. It was later that year when the name "Our Redeemer Lutheran Church" was adopted. St James graciously provided their sanctuary to their Lutheran brothers and sisters in Christ until the spring of 1965. A church building was purchased with the help of the Church Extension Fund and moved to a location on U.S. 441 on Alligator Lake. The first service in our new building was held on May 16, 1965. Worship services continued there until May 3, 1987, when a new sanctuary was built at the current location of Our Redeemer Lutheran. This building is now our Fellowship Hall where we gather after our services and where Bible Study is held after Sunday Worship. In 2008, a building committee was formed and it was decided that a new sanctuary would be built. Groundbreaking took place in September 2008 and the current Worship Hall was dedicated on October 25, 2009. Pastor Bruce Alkire was the liturgist for that dedicating service. In 2017 we welcomed our current Pastor Stephen Fair.
