We will also celebrate and give kids and teachers a send-off with a potluck following church on August 14th. Please sign up here. In addition, there will be a sign-up available at the hospitality table on Sunday morning, as well as warming pans you can pick up if you plan to bring a hot food item to the potluck. 

If you have any questions about the back-to-school drive, contact Christal. If you have any questions about the potluck, contact Bethany.

3. Benevolence Fund: Following the example of the Early Church (see Acts 2:42-47 and Acts 4:32-35), Church of the Redeemer maintains a Benevolence Fund, overseen by our Deacons' ministry, to provide financial assistance to people in our congregation and neighborhood as needed. Please keep this ministry in mind, and prayerfully consider making occasional or regular contributions to the fund. Benevolence offerings can be made at the hospitality table on Sunday mornings.
