We believe that God has intentionally situated our church body in places where there are great needs, both physically and spiritually. As we seek to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community, we want to do so in a way that brings the true redeeming life and power of the gospel. We seek to invest in and further good educational systems. We hope to feed and nourish those who are hungry. We desire to provide clothes and shelter for those without. We hope to begin the process of changing generational and cultural sins that pervade each home. As we bring the healing of the gospel into each of these particulars, relationships are born and Christ is communicated both through word and deed.
In order to best speak to each of these needs, we do the majority of our local outreach through partnerships with groups that specialize in helping meet needs in a specific area.
Below is more information about our local ministries and partnerships:
Cornerstone Schools of Alabama
Our church body works hand in hand with this local inner city school in a multitude of ways including tutoring, mentoring, workdays, providing chapel speakers, providing school supplies, and helping in other financial avenues.
YWCA Hospitality House
Birmingham’s only homeless shelter for families is located in Woodlawn, and Redeemer partners with this group in a myriad of ways. The most basic way is that every Tuesday night we provide a communal meal that our folks prepare and share with the residents.
Monday Night Ministry
Every Monday evening, a group of boys and girls from the surrounding communities gather for sports/crafts, a devotional, and snacks.
Crestwood Day School
This school was started by some of our own members in order to provide a quality, Christ-centered education for those living in East Birmingham.
