Serving Our Church
Health & Caring
Vibrant living isn’t just about spiritual health, for God created us as physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual beings. We at Redeemer seek to minister to all aspects of people’s lives. Our on-staff parish nurse coordinates a team of volunteers to empower our people to seek wholeness through prayer, education, and health care. If you would like more information please contact Mary.
This team serves a delicious, well-balanced meal to church members and families who have recently had a death in the immediate family, have recently had a baby, or have had a hospital stay following an accident or surgery. Others on this team serve by visiting those in the hospital or our shut-ins.
These men assist the disabled, elderly, single parents, or anyone needing home maintenance.
Prayers & Squares
This ministry provides a prayer quilt for members of Redeemer who are facing a life-changing illness. Volunteers are needed to assemble quilts, tie knots and pray for the recipient. This group meets twice monthly; please see calendar for dates.
Blood Pressure Screening
Blood pressure screenings are usually planned following the morning worship service on a monthly basis. Our volunteer nurses help with this ministry, and encourage those with problems to see their physician. Please see the church calendar for the next scheduled screening.
Various support groups are scheduled throughout the year. These meetings are not only open to those who attend Redeemer, but also those from our community. If you would like to lead a group or be a part of one, please contact Mary. Some of the recent groups meeting are:
- Griefshare – a 10-week program for those who have lost loved ones
- Overcomers of Adult Sexual Abuse – an 8-10 week program
- “Strength for Today and Bright Hope for Tomorrow” – cancer support group for cancer patients and their family members
