I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these of mine, you did for me. Matthew 25:40
We demonstrate God’s love, show mercy and evangelize to:
those inside our church community; and
those outside in our local communities.
We are the face of Christ and we have a mission to serve the widows, orphans, weak and the lost and share the gospel of hope and redemption to those who seek and yearn to fill the emptiness in their lives, the God hole that we all have in our hearts reserved only for Him. We do this by providing for the physical needs so that we can share and provide for their spiritual needs.
Our goal is to see all our ministry teams working with each other to share the gospel and fulfill the great commission. To do this we would like to involve as many of Church of the Redeemer’s members as possible in the mercy and outreach efforts of this team to share the gospel with the lost and seeking.
What We Do
A Helping Hand in Our Church
Our mercy ministry provides hands on intervention to our church family and to the great Union County community. As a team, we work together with the deacons to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those that God has placed in relationship with us.
Those in our church community are offered assistance in times of hardship or crisis. This can be financial which could also include counseling in finances, encouragement and accountability. It can also take the form of emotional and spiritual help as well. The Care Team can also become part of the assistance that is offered.
Those outside the church are usually referred to our local agencies that we partner with for financial needs. We have a list of local agencies and their services and will refer them to the proper agency. If we have a relationship with people through our car care ministry, we may consider helping them through the mercy ministry.
Our Car Care Ministry is being restructured this year. Our mercy ministry is still offering free car care to the single women (i.e. divorced, widowed, separated, or unmarried) in our congregation with financial needs that prevent you from the regular upkeep of your car, you may qualify for our service. This service is not for those who can readily pay. If you are in need , please contact the church office, 704-254-5425 for an application. We will also consider referrals from the partnering community ministries that are listed below.
A Helping Hand in our Community through Outreach
Church of the Redeemer partners with several ministries and agencies in Union County to do outreach and assist them with the services and ministry they provide to our community.
Our current relationships are:
