Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
Redeemer Lutheran Church is active in missions and evangelism. We tend to see evangelism and outreach as a part of our daily calling. Mission is not the work of a committee or a program or a select group in church; it is what Christians do. We gather as God’s people in worship and and hear the Word and with joy we then go and share the Gospel in our families and daily lives and the places where God calls us.
Redeemer is also active in organized mission activities. Various groups from Redeemer have traveled to the Outer Banks, New Orleans (twice), New York City, Baltimore, Chicago and Tuscaloosa to do various kinds of mission work. We have an active group that builds wheel chair ramps for local folks in need. We collect food for the local relief agencies and elementary schools and are involved in various social ministry projects throughout the year.
Our latest project is a collaborative effort with other congregations to assist the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Haiti in a new congregation and school in the remote area of Laochikit (http://www.facebook.com/FirstEvangelicalLutheranChurchOfLaotchikit?fref=ts) Redeemer engaged in a large fund drive and clothing and supply drive and sent members to work there in 2012 and another trip is in the works for 2013.
