In 2014, Our Redeemer’s developed a strategic plan focused on three main objectives:
Deepening community. In 2004, after a year of conversation and study, Our Redeemer’s voted to publicly welcome individuals of all sexual orientations and gender identities by becoming a Reconciling in Christ congregation. People of all ages, backgrounds and spiritual journeys are now invited to the communion table and to our life together. To learn more, visit the Grow In Community page.
Transformative spirituality. We shifted our focus away from membership toward a more open and inclusive approach. Our Redeemer’s welcomes exploration, questions and individual experiences. We provide the space, safety, acceptance and resources each person needs to explore faith and experience spirituality in his or her own way. To learn more, visit the Grow in Spirit page.
Ministry-focused outreach. A longtime resource for our Ballard neighborhood, Our Redeemer’s created active social justice ministries and partnered with local organizations to maximize our capacity and impact. In recent years, Our Redeemer’s has sheltered homeless families in our fellowship hall, hosted a Share shelter and helped create the Road2Housing Project.
