"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me'" (Matt. 25:35-40).
There are many opportunities to serve our city. Redeemer works with and supports the following local ministries:
"Jobs for Life engages and equips the Church to prepare individuals for meaningful work." Redeemer hosts annual or bi-annual Jobs For Life courses to help people in our community get a job (or a better job!).
"Faith Mission is an ecumenical, Christian based non-profit organization created to be a central clearinghouse for assistance to the homeless and working poor in Washington county. Individuals, churches, community organizations, and corporations through Faith Mission support individuals in crisis, as well as helping individuals achieve educational, vocational, and employment/career opportunities."
"New Beginnings is a Christ-centered organization serving individuals and families experiencing pregnancy related issues, from unplanned pregnancy to pregnancy loss. We provide life-affirming consultation, education and spiritual support, honoring the rights of the pre-born and the dignity of those we serve."
Nursing Home Visitation
Every 5th Sunday Redeemer visits all of the nursing homes in Brenham. We read Scripture, sing, pray, visit, and have fun.
For the City is "a network of community partners building a bridge between community needs and available resources." For the City serves as a portal for churches and individuals to serve our city and community together.
