Grow in Service

Social justice: be a force.

Walking the walk, one step at a time.

Our Redeemer’s serves the neighborhood and world beyond our doors through our active social justice ministries. As a community in the model of Christ, we are committed to turning our values into actions for the life of the world. Through our ongoing ministry projects, we work together to pursue social justice, extend kindness and walk humbly within and with our community.

Our social justice ministries focus on three main goals: feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless and caring for the environment. Visit the Food, Shelter and EarthCare pages to learn about these ongoing projects.

Our Partners

Our Redeemer’s partners with many local organizations and campaigns that serve hungry, homeless and vulnerable members of our community.

One community. Many ways to serve.

We all have something to give.

Rolling up our sleeves to take on real-world challenges, we extend our time, energy and resources to those who need them most. Everyone is welcome to join in. No matter how often you participate—once a year or once a month—your involvement makes a real difference and helps strengthen our community of service. Please browse the calendar for a schedule of upcoming social service opportuinities. We’ll see you there!

Help us meet our community’s needs.

God’s Work. Our Hands. Sunday.

Do you know of a need in the community? Twice a year, thirty to forty members of all ages join Lutherans all over the country in a God’s Work. Our Hands. Sunday. We identify our community’s needs and do whatever needs doing, from cleaning the Compass Men’s Shelter or collecting non-perishables from grocery shoppers. If you know of a need within the community please share it with us and join us as work to address it.

Pastor’s Discretionary Fund

The Pastor’s Discretionary Fund exists to meet emergency needs within Our Redeemer’s and for those who come to us in a time of need. This fund, sustained by generous members our congregation, provides help with rent, counseling, medication and other costs.

For those whose needs are better met through other service providers, we offer an in-depth resource book, a free telephone, a cup of hot coffee and a warm, friendly place to rest.

“For me, it is about love without judgment and our shared humanity. I might help someone, someone might help me, that’s what being human is all about.”
