SERVE one another - GLOBALLY
Serving is one of the best ways to live out your faith in community with others and is the most powerful way to make a difference in your life, the life of your family and the life of others. Whether it's helping in the family ministry on Sunday mornings or serving on the other side of the world, opportunities to serve are plentiful here at Redeemer and we encourage everyone to get involved in shaping our church, our local Austin community, and our world.
We recognize how busy schedules can be, and we also recognize there's a million things competing for your time and attention. Here at Redeemer we really believe that serving is paramount to growing closer to Jesus and as He taught us to serve by His own example, that's what we are working towards.
KENYA - May 24th through June 3rd
Redeemer first engaged in ministry efforts in Kenya in 2009. Since then, 17 different groups of people have been sent from Redeemer to serve there (specifically in Nairobi). Our 18th group will head out this May to serve the people there through our eye clinic and other evangelistic efforts. This next group will especially be involved in support of the smaller church plants in the area that Redeemer continues to support through a ministry of presence on the ground there.
COSTA RICA - July 9th through 18th
Redeemer first engaged in ministry efforts in Costa Rica in 2015. Since then, several different groups have been sent out from Redeemer to serve there. Ministry efforts in Costa Rica primarily focuses on underprivileged children through various events and VBS styled activities. Our work this year will continue to build upon previous years and will continue to support the children and youth of Costa Rica.
HOUSTON - June 24th through 30th
Houston Harvey tied with Hurricane Katrina as the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting over $125 Billion in damage, primarily from catastrophic rainfall-triggered flooding in and around the Houston area. In a four-day period, many areas received more than 40 inches of rain. We will be sending team into the area to help local families in the clean up effort and help with home repair as well.
NEW ORLEANS - July 15th through 21st
Redeemer is sending another team to New Orleans again this year. 2018 will mark the 10th year of Redeemer sending teams into the New Orleans area to serve in a variety of ways. Historically, Redeemer has sent teams to support the ministry efforts of other non-profit organizations already established in the New Orleans area. This year's team will continue that work by supporting a couple of organizations serving the people there day in and day out.
