Outreach Component of 2011 Strategic Plan
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.”
We will reinvigorate our outreach programs and integrate community service into all aspects of our congregational life.
Rationale: In volunteering our time and services to individuals in need outside our Church community, we obey Christ’s call and are bound more firmly together within our Church community.
Examples of how we will carry out our goal:
- Evaluate our entire Outreach program, based in part on a survey of members about current Outreach activities, activities they would like to do through Redeemer, and other activities in which they are involved outside Redeemer.
- Listen intently and seek out new opportunities for outreach that will generate broad and enthusiastic participation from the congregation, focusing especially on nearby neighborhoods in need.
- Each ministry at Redeemer will be encouraged to incorporate an outreach activity into its ministry.
