Serve

Want to serve?

At Redeemer Bible Church, we rely heavily on a large number of volunteers who love Jesus and sacrificially serve His Church, all for the sake of the Gospel! If you visit Redeemer and enjoy a good cup of coffee or the music in our worship service; if you’re welcomed by a greeter and pointed in the right direction or notice your child is well cared for in Kids ministry – you have been affected by the faithful service of one of our incredible volunteers!

To our volunteers: thank you for using your time and talent for God’s glory and the good of others!

Serve at Redeemer

Set-up & tear-down

Point of Contact: Travis Elkins // This team is responsible for unloading all our gear from the Church On Wheels trailer, creating our ministry environments, and - at the end of our Sunday gathering - putting everything away again. No special skills required.

KIDS MINISTRY

It takes a village to raise a child! It takes the involvement of the whole church to pull off ministry to kids from birth-grade 5. If you're looking for a place to serve, we want you on our team!

WORSHIP TEAM

Point of Contact: Will Thorpe // We have opportunities for musicians and singers of all styles. We will soon have opportunities for younger students to be introduced into the larger music world. 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS TEAM

Point of Contact: Christine Lindahl // Our First Impressions team creates an inviting environment on Sunday mornings. Members of this team are in the parking lot, in the lobby, in the coffee corner and at our mobile library. If you can smile and offer a welcoming handshake, you’re perfect for this ministry.

Also included in first impressions are our ushers, who collect and count our offering and provide security for the church. If you could see yourself in any of these roles, email us at christinemlindahl@gmail.com.

MICAH ECCUMENICAL MINISTRIES

Point of Contact: Kristen Frezza
In response to God’s call to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8), Micah Ecumenical Ministries was formed. By partnering with Micah Ministries, we join forces with other believers across our city to assist those whose needs are not being met and build a better community. Micah’s programs have been evolving to offer a greater holistic system of care, including connection to community resources, mental health outreach, disability application assistance, post-hospital respite care, supportive employment, educational advancement, housing placement and re-creation of the support systems necessary for people to stabilize outside of their present crisis.

Serve the World

DISASTER RELIEF

POC: Dwayne Reynolds
The Southern Baptist Disaster Relief is a North American Mission Board organization that provides relief to those impacted by a disaster, natural or man-made. The organization is managed and deployed at the state level, our organization is with the SBCV. Every volunteer is required to be trained to a basic FEMA standard and have a background check performed. Right now, we are very short on credentialed volunteers. Despite a fairly quiet year last year, Southern Baptists supported over 670,000 volunteer hours, 368,000 meals, shared the gospel over 4,000 times and lead over 920 people to Christ. This year, we are working several disasters in a row in several states. We need volunteers to help with feeding units, flood recovery and chainsaw teams. Training can be completed in one evening. Would you consider volunteering and spending one week at a recovery event?

Mission Rwanda

(Postponed due to COVID-19. New Dates TBD) Pastor Vic and a small team from Redeemer will visit Kigali, Rwanda to partner with IMB missionary Josiah Lutrull. The purpose of the trip is to train and help equip local Christian leaders to be effective church leaders. While on the ground, the team will (1) teach as many classes as possible (approximately 40 people per class) on various subjects and books of the Bible, (2) get onto a local university to work with campus small group leaders, (3) encourage Josiah and his wife (and 4 kids), (4) share the gospel as able, (5) research / plan for future work, and (6) pray for the ministry.

More global mission opportunities to come
