going out in mission!

local, regional and global

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.”


At Christ the Redeemer we have partnered with over 12 agencies from our community and beyond to serve and bless others with the love of Jesus Christ. In addition, we commit 10% of our pledged income to mission.  If you are interested in learning more either contact the church here or Sandy Tisdale, our Mission leader here.

Local Mission opportunities

Rivertree Academy

First Opportunity:

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! 

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


Second Opportunity:

 'Feeding the soul', is another way you could help, which provides snacks for their campuses.  These snacks will be for in between meals, during recess, etc.  Any type of snack will be appreciated as long as it's individually wrapped and nonperishable. 

 

Snacks may be brought by CTR on Sunday or through the week and we will see that they get delivered to Rivertree. Or you may drop them off at their Bonnell location (HERE) and they will make sure they get distributed to the other locations.
