going out in mission!

CTR is a church of the Great Commandment:

Jesus said, in Matthew 22: 37-40: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and Great Commandment, and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”


CTR is a church committed to mission ...

Jesus said in Acts 1:8: "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samar'ia and to the ends of the earth." 

At Christ the Redeemer, we commit 10% of our pledged income to mission. We partner with a variety of different organizations locally, regionally and globally to serve and bless others with the love of Jesus Christ. If you are interested in learning more either contact the church here or Sandy Tisdale, our Mission leader here.

Rivertree Academy

Volunteers are a critical component to life at Rivertree Academy! On average, they have approximately 140 weekly volunteers who are investing in their students.  Whether you are interested in one-on-one tutoring, leading a literature group, working with our pre-kindergarteners in the classroom, mentoring, or anything in between, they need you! 

If you are unable to commit to a weekly time to serve, they have other ways to volunteer as well!  Occasional volunteers serve as: chaperones for field trips, helpers at our school carnival, child care providers during Parent Meetings, office assistants, teacher appreciation helpers, etc. If you are specifically looking for occasional times to serve on the weekends, they have monthly campus improvement and clean-up projects, that they call Serve Saturdays, on the second Saturday of each month.  Both individuals and small groups are welcome!

For more information, you can contact Rivertree directly here or you can fill out their interest form.
