  • Contributions and labor for Toy Sunday for Children and Family Assistance in DC
  • Street Church volunteers for the Church of the Epiphany in downtown DC
  • Providing meals to homeless people with Bethesda Cares

 

The Mission/Outreach Committee is pleased to announce that the Vestry approved distribution of funds from the Mission/Outreach budget for 2017 to:

 

  • Bethesda Cares, Bethesda, MD

Applications for Mission/Outreach Funds

Do you see a new way that we at Redeemer can lend a hand to those less fortunate than we are?  An organization whose mission calls on us to put our energy and enthusiasm into the task together as partners? If so, the Redeemer Mission/Outreach Committee would like to hear from you. Applications for funding from the mission/outreach budget for a new project or to an organizations supported last year, are requested to be submitted to the committee by July 30th. The committee seeks those organizations that we can support not only from our pocket but from with our spirit. Applications are available from the Parish Office.
