REDEEMER SERVES

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
 
This is not an event it is a movement! We as a church family desire to commit over 4000 hours of service to our community, being the hands and feet of Jesus. Service is part of the fabric of our Christian lives. Making a difference in our community or in someone’s life is a calling for which God has gifted His people. We are not a passive people but a faith community that engages our village, neighborhoods, and people. with the love of Jesus. Our Growth Groups and individual members are invited to record their hours and share their stories as together we serve our community.
Schedule for the day:
     8:45am Meet at the church for coffee, danish, and divide into project groups.
